On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.


4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see section 2) and/or in section 11.


4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

5.3. Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Suitable materials for containers: Stainless steel 1.4401, Stainless steel 1.4301 (V2), High density polyethylene (HDPE), glass, Low density polyethylene (LDPE)
Unsuitable materials for containers: Paper/Fibreboard
Further information on storage conditions: Protect from air.

Storage stability:
Storage temperature: < 50 °C
Storage duration: 6 Months
May yellow after lengthy storage.
During the storage a product characteristic clouding or crystallin precipitation of the trimeric glyoxal hydrate may occur.
The process is reversible if warmed up mild (max. 40 °C).
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

Protect from temperatures above: 50 °C
The packed product must be protected against exceeding the indicated temperature.

7.3. Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits


107-21-1: ethanediol; ethylene glycol
Skin Designation (WEL/EH 40 (UK)), vapour
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
Skin Designation (WEL/EH 40 (UK)), Particulate
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
TWA value 52 mg/m3 ; 20 ppm (WEL/EH 40 (UK)), vapour
TWA value 10 mg/m3 (WEL/EH 40 (UK)), Particulate
STEL value 104 mg/m3 ; 40 ppm (WEL/EH 40 (UK)), vapour

The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
STEL value 104 mg/m3 ; 40 ppm (OEL (EU))
indicative
TWA value 52 mg/m3 ; 20 ppm (OEL (EU))
indicative

PNEC
freshwater: 0.319 mg/l

marine water: 0.0319 mg/l

intermittent release: 1.1 mg/l

sediment (freshwater): 0.685 mg/kg

sediment (marine water): 0.0685 mg/kg

soil: 6.3 mg/kg

STP: 4.1 mg/l


DNEL

Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 10.8 mg/kg

worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 5.28 mg/m3


8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point <65 °C, f.e. EN 14387 Type AX)

Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

Hand protection:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) etc.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately. Wash off any contamination that gets onto the skin with plenty of water and soap, skin care.
