Wear full protective firegear including self-containing breathing apparatus operated in the positive pressure mode with full facepiece, coat, pants, gloves and boots.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area). Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Keep unauthorized personnel away. See Section 8 of the SDS for Personal Protective Equipment. Ventilate area if spilled in confined space or other poorly ventilated areas.

Environmental Precautions:
Avoid release to the environment. Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so. Dike far ahead of larger spill for later recovery and disposal. Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material. Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Open container in a well ventilated area. Avoid breathing vapors.
Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Do not get in eyes. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Avoid environmental contamination.

Maximum Handling Temperature:
60 °C

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Odorous and toxic fumes may form from decomposition if stored above 113 deg F (45 deg C) for extended periods of time or if heat sources in excess of 250 deg F (121 deg C) are used. Do not store in open, unlabeled or mislabeled containers. Keep cool. Store in a well-ventilated place. Do not store near potential sources of ignition.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control Parameters
Occupational Exposure Limits
None of the components have assigned exposure limits.

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls:
Material should be handled in enclosed vessels and equipment, in which case general (mechanical) room ventilation should be sufficient. Local exhaust ventilation should be used at points where dust, mist, vapors or gases can escape into the room air. Adequate ventilation should be provided so that exposure limits are not exceeded.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
General information:
Please follow the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines below and refer to the appropriate EN standard where applicable. Provide easy access to water supply and eye wash facilities. Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Eye/face protection:
Safety glasses. If potential for splash or mist exists, wear chemical goggles or faceshield. Wear tight-fitting goggles or face shield. Eye protection should meet the standards set out in EN 166.

Skin protection
Hand Protection:
Use nitrile or neoprene gloves. Use good industrial hygiene practices. In case of skin contact, wash hands and arms with soap and water. Chemical resistant gloves

General:
Because specific work environments and material handling practices vary, safety procedures should be specific for each intended application. The correct choice of protective gloves depends upon the chemicals being handled, and the conditions of work and use. Most gloves provide protection for only a limited time before they must be discarded and replaced (even the best chemically resistant gloves will break down after repeated chemical exposures). Gloves should be chosen in consultation with the supplier / manufacturer and taking account of a full assessment of the working conditions. For typical use and handling of chemical substances, gloves should meet the standards set out in EN 374. For applications involving mechanical risks with potential for abrasion or puncture, the standards set out in EN 388 should be considered. For tasks involving thermal hazards, the standards set out in EN 407 should be considered.

Break-through time:
Breakthrough time data are generated by glove manufacturers under laboratory test conditions and represent how long a glove can be expected to provide effective permeation resistance. It is important when following breakthrough time recommendations that actual workplace conditions are taken into account. Always consult with your glove supplier for up-to-date technical information on breakthrough times for the recommended glove type.
For continuous contact, we suggest gloves with a minimum breakthrough time of 240 minutes, or > 480 minutes if suitable gloves can be obtained. If suitable gloves are not available to offer that level of protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may be acceptable as long as appropriate glove maintenance and replacement regimes are determined and adhered to.
For short-term, transient exposures and splash protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may commonly be used. Therefore, appropriate maintenance and replacement regimes must be determined and rigorously followed.

Glove thickness:
For general applications, we recommend gloves with a thickness typically greater than 0.35 mm.
It is important to note that glove thickness is not the only predictor of glove resistance to a specific chemical, as the permeation efficiency of the glove will be dependent on the exact composition of the glove material. Therefore, glove selection should also be based on consideration of the task requirements and knowledge of breakthrough times.
Glove thickness may also vary depending on the glove manufacturer, the glove type and the glove model. Therefore, the manufacturers’ technical data should always be taken into account to ensure selection of the most appropriate glove for the task.
Note: Depending on the activity being conducted, gloves of varying thickness may be required for specific tasks. For example: Thinner gloves (down to 0.1 mm or less) may be required where a high degree of manual dexterity is needed. However, these gloves are only likely to give short duration protection and would normally be just for single use applications, before being disposed of. Thicker gloves (up to 3 mm or more) may be required where there is a mechanical (as well as a chemical) risk i.e. where there is abrasion or puncture potential.

Other:
Wear apron or protective clothing in case of contact. Chemical resistant boots. Do not wear rings, watches or similar apparel that could entrap the material. Long sleeve shirt is recommended.

Respiratory Protection:
Use respirator with a combination organic vapor and dust/mist cartridge. A respiratory protection program compliant with all applicable regulations must be followed whenever workplace conditions require the use of a respirator. Under normal use conditions, respirator is not usually required. Use appropriate respiratory protection if exposure to dust particles, mist or vapors is likely. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space, for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.
Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is not normally required where there is adequate natural or local exhaust ventilation to control exposure.
In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
The correct choice of respiratory protection depends upon the chemicals being handled, the conditions of work and use, and the condition of the respiratory equipment.
Safety procedures should be developed for each intended application.
Respiratory protection equipment should therefore be chosen in consultation with the supplier/manufacturer and with a full assessment of the working conditions.
Please refer to the relevant EN standards for the RPE selected.

Hygiene measures:
Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Do not get this material in contact with skin. Do not get in eyes. Avoid contact with skin. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. When using do not smoke. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace.
