First-aid measures


Remove person to fresh air.  If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.

Skin Contact:  

Wash with soap and water.  If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.

No need for first aid is anticipated.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

See SDS Section 11.1. Information on toxicological effects.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment required

Not applicable

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

Non-combustible. Use a fire fighting agent suitable for surrounding fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Exposure to extreme heat can give rise to thermal decomposition.

Hazardous Decomposition or By-Products

Substance                     Condition

Carbon monoxide              During Combustion

Carbon dioxide                                  During Combustion

Advice for fire-fighters:

When firefighting conditions are severe and total thermal decomposition of the product is possible, wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained, positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus, bunker coat and pants, bands around arms, waist and legs, face mask, and protective covering for exposed areas of the head.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Ventilate the area with fresh air.  For large spill, or spills in confined spaces, provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust vapors, in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice.  Observe precautions from other SDS sections.

Environmental precautions

Avoid release to the environment.  For larger spills, cover drains and build dikes to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Contain spill.  Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material.  Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry.  Collect as much of the spilled material as possible.  Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities.  Clean up residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorized person.  Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the solvent label and SDS.  Seal the container.  Dispose of collected material as soon as possible.

Reference to other SDS sections:

Refer to SDS Section 8 and Section 13 for more information

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Do not breathe thermal decomposition products.  Avoid skin contact with hot material.  Store work clothes separately from other clothing, food and tobacco products.  Keep away from reactive metals (eg. Aluminum, zinc etc.) to avoid the formation of hydrogen gas that could create an explosion hazard.  No smoking: Smoking while using this product can result in contamination of the tobacco and/or smoke and lead to the formation of hazardous decomposition products.

Conditions for safe storage including any incompatibilities:

Store away from heat.

Specific end use(s):

See information in SDS Section 7.1 and 7.2 for handling and storage recommendations.  See SDS Section 8 for exposure controls and personal protection recommendations.
