Move victims into fresh air.
In case of discomfort: Supply with medical care.
Skin contact
IF ON SKIN: Wash with plenty of water/ soap.
In case of discomfort: Supply with medical care.
Eye contact

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
sensitising effects
Health injuries may be delayed.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

administration of activated charcoal.
Acceleration of gastrointestinal passage

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Adapt fire-extinguishing measures to surroundings
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use full-force water jet in order to avoid dispersal and spread of the fire.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: phosphorous oxides.
organic products of decomposition
Advice for firefighters
Water for fire fighting must not be introduced in the sewer system, subsoil, or surface waters. Assure that there are sufficient fire water retaining facilities Contaminated fire fighting water must be disposed of in conformity with the regulations of the local authorities.
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Employ protective equipment commonly used in the event of fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear personal protective equipment
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, groundwater or drainage systems.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Sweep up or vacuum up spillage and collect in suitable container for disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure suitable suction/aeration at the work place and with operational machinery.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Take precautionary measures against static charges, keep away from sources of ignition.
When repairs of the production system are to be made (e.g. welding work), the section to be repaired must be essentially free of product.
Keep in inert gas.
Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Keep container tightly closed.
Further information
Protect from sunlight, warmth and heat.
Advice on common storage
Avoid contact with strong oxidants.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Ensure suitable suction/aeration at the work place and with operational machinery.
Do not introduce suctioned air to the work rooms.
If possible, transfer and handle product in closed systems only. Avoid production of dust.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case product dust is released or if workplace exposure limit is exeeded:
Hand protection
Wear protective gloves made of the following materials:.
Glove material Natural rubber (NR)
Material thickness 0,5 mm
Break through time > 480 min
Glove material Polychloroprene (PCP)
Material thickness 0,5 mm
Break through time > 480 min
Glove material PVC
Material thickness 0,5 mm
Break through time > 480 min
The material thickness and rupture time data do not apply to non-solute solids / dusts.
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
Please observe that the daily duration of usage of a chemical protective glove is in practice far shorter due to the many influencing factors (e.g. temperature, mechanical strain on the glove material) than the permeation time determined acc. EN 374.
Eye protection
close-fitting protective goggles (e.g. closed goggles)
Skin and body protection
Wear suitable protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothing immediately and rinse clothing with water in a container to completely remove catalyst.
Keep working clothes separately.
Hygiene measures
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.
Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work.
Apply adequate skin protection agents before handling the product. Assure skin cleaning and skin care after work. Preventive skin protection is recommended.
Protective measures
The personal protective equipment used must meet the requirements of directive 89/686/EEC and amendments (CE certification).
It should be defined in the work place in the form of a risk analysis according to directive 89/686/EEC and amendments.
All precautionary measures indicated have to be observed.

Stability and reactivity

No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.
Chemical stability
Stable under recommended storage conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions Combustion may occur on contact with flammable solvents or solvent vapours or with flammable gases in the presence of air (oxygen) .
Conditions to avoid
Keep away from heat.
No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.
Incompatible materials
Strong oxidizing agents, organic solvents
Hazardous decomposition products
No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Used catalysts may have different hazards or properties than the original products. For this reason, this safety data sheet must not be used for waste catalysts or catalysts currently in use.
Other countries: observe the national regulations.
Uncleaned packaging
Do not reuse empty containers and dispose of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.
If there is product residue in the emptied container, follow directions for handling on the container's label.
Waste Key Number
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
