First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
- Inhalation: Fresh air, consult doctor.
- Skin contact: Immediately rinse with copious amounts of running water (for 10 minutes). Remove contaminated clothes.
Put on a bandage with sterile gauze, seek medical attention in hospital.
- Eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with soft jet of water or eye rinse solution for at least 15 minutes. Hold eyelid wide-open. Seek a doctor/hospital, eye flushing should continue during transportation to a doctor.
- Ingestion: Rinse out mouth, drink 1-2 glasses of water, do not induce vomiting. Immediate medical treatment necessary.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: Causes burns.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: See section Description of first aid measures

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
- Suitable extinguishing media: All common extinguishing agents are suitable.
- Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: None known
- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or in fires.
- Advice for firefighters: Put on breathing apparatus. Wear protective equipment.
- Additional information: In case of fire, keep containers cool with water spray.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
- Environmental precautions: Do not empty into drains / surface water / ground water.
- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Wash away residue with plenty of water: Remove with liquid-absorbing material (sand, peat, sawdust). Dispose of contaminated material as waste according to Section Disposal considerations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Open and handle container with care. Avoid skin and eye contact. Ensure that workrooms are adequately ventilated.
When diluting/dissolving always slowly stir the product into water. Do not add product to hot water or hot solutions. Heating with vigorous, sudden delayed boiling is possible! Scalding hazard! See advice in section Exposure controls/personal protection
Hygiene measures: Wash hands before work breaks and after finishing work. Do not eat, drink or smoke while working. Wash contaminated clothingbefore reuse. The workplace should be equipped with an emergency shower and eye-rinsing facility.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in sealed original container. Store in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Keep only in original container.

Specific end use(s): Etching Agents for Metals

Exposure controls / personal protection

Biological Exposure Indices: None
- Exposure controls:
Engineering controls: Avoid generation and inhalation of aerosols. Ensure good ventilation/suction at the workplace.
- Respiratory protection: In case of aerosol formation, we recommend wearing of appropriate respiratory protection equipment with ABEK P2 filter.
This recommendation should be matched to local conditions.
- Hand protection: Chemical-resistant protective gloves (EN 374). Suitable materials for short-term contact or splashes (recommended:
at least protection index 2, corresponding to > 30 minutes permeation time as per EN 374): Isobutylene-isoprene rubber
(IIR; >= 0.7 mm thickness) Suitable materials for longer, direct contact (recommended: protection index 6, corresponding to > 480 minutes
permeation time as per EN 374): Isobutylene-isoprene rubber (IIR; >= 0.7 mm thickness) This information is based on literature references and on
information provided by glove manufacturers, or is derived by analogy with similar substances. Please note that in practice the working life of
chemical-resistant protective gloves may be considerably shorter than the permeation time determined in accordance with EN 374 as a result of the many influencing factors (e.g. temperature). If signs of wear and tear are noticed then the gloves should be replaced.
- Eye protection: Goggles which can be tightly sealed.
- Skin protection: Protective clothing that covers arms and legs.

Stability and reactivity

- Reactivity:
Reacts with acids: Heat released. Reacts with acids: release of poisonous gases possible.
- Chemical stability: Stable under recommended storage conditions.
- Possibility of hazardous reactions: See section reactivity
- Conditions to avoid: No decomposition if used according to specifications.
- Incompatible materials: See section reactivity
- Hazardous decomposition products: None if used for intended purpose. In case of fire toxic gases can be released.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:
- Product disposal: In consultation with the responsible local authority, must be subjected to special treatment. Waste code 060205
The valid EWC waste code numbers are source-related. The manufacturer is therefore unable to specify EWC waste codes for the articles or products used in the various sectors. The EWC codes listed are intended as a recommendation for users.
