First-aid measures

Inhalation
Keep at rest. Aerate with fresh air. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.
USA (A-US)
Eyes
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses.
Immediate medical attention is required.
Skin
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical
advice.
Ingestion
Call a physician immediately. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice.
Main symptoms
None known.***
Special hazard
Lung irritation, Lung oedema, Kidney disorders, respiratory disorder.
General advice
Remove contaminated, soaked clothing immediately and dispose of safely. First aider needs to protect himself.
Treat symptomatically. If ingested, flush stomach and compensate acidosis.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide (CO2), water spray
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of:
carbon monoxide (CO)
carbon dioxide (CO2)
Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons
Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Fire fighter protection should include a self-contained breathing apparatus (NIOSH-approved or EN 133) and full
fire-fighting turn out gear.
USA (A-US)
Precautions for firefighting
Cool containers / tanks with water spray. Water run-off can cause environmental damage. Dike and collect water used
to fight fire. Keep people away from and upwind of fire.***

Accidental release measures

Methods for containment
Stop the flow of material, if possible without risk. Dike spilled material, where this is possible.
Methods for cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. If liquid has been spilt in large
quantities clean up promptly by scoop or vacuum. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations. Take necessary
action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours).

Handling and storage

Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing vapors or mists. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Prevent further leakage or spillage. Do not discharge product into the aquatic environment without pretreatment
(biological treatment plant).
Advice on safe handling
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.
Emergency telephone number in USA, call 800 424 9300; outside USA, call USA 703 527 3887, collect calls accepted
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash hands before breaks
and immediately after handling the product.
Incompatible products
bases
amines
strong oxidizing agents
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which
might cause ignition of organic vapours). In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be available.
Ground and bond containers when transferring material.
Technical measures/Storage conditions
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Handle and open container with care. Store at
temperatures not exceeding 38 °C/ 100 °F.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate Engineering controls
___________________________________________________________________________________________
General or dilution ventilation is frequently insufficient as the sole means of controlling employee exposure. Local
ventilation is usually preferred. Explosion-proof equipment (for example fans, switches, and grounded ducts) should
be used in mechanical ventilation systems.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
General industrial hygiene practice
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Ensure that eyewash stations and
safety showers are close to the workstation location.

Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash hands before breaks
and immediately after handling the product.
USA (A-US)
Eye protection
Tightly fitting safety goggles. In addition to goggles, wear a face shield if there is a reasonable chance for splash to
the face.
Hand protection
Wear protective gloves. Recommendations are listed below. Other protective material may be used, depending on the
situation, if adequate degradation and permeation data is available. If other chemicals are used in conjunction with
this chemical, material selection should be based on protection for all chemicals present.
Suitable material nitrile rubber
Evaluation according to EN 374: level 6
Glove thickness approx 0,55 mm
Break through time > 480 min
Suitable material polyvinylchloride
Evaluation Information derived from practical experience
Glove thickness approx 0.8 mm
Skin and body protection
Impervious clothing. Wear face-shield and protective suit for abnormal processing problems.
Respiratory protection
Respirator with filter for organic vapour. Use the indicated respiratory protection if the occupational exposure limit is
exceeded and/or in case of product release (dust). Equipment should conform to NIOSH.
Environmental exposure controls
Use product only in closed system. If leakage can not be prevented, the substance needs to be suck off at the
emersion point, if possible without danger. Observe the exposure limits, clean exhaust air if needed. If recycling is not
practicable, dispose of in compliance with local regulations. Inform the responsible authorities in case of leakage into
the atmosphere, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains.

Stability and reactivity

The reactivity of the product corresponds to the typical reactivity shown by the substance group as described in any
text book on organic chemistry.
Stable under recommended storage conditions.

Disposal considerations

Product Information
Disposal required in compliance with all waste management related state and local regulations. The choice of the
appropriate method of disposal depends on the product composition by the time of disposal as well as the local
statutes and possibilities for disposal.
Uncleaned empty packaging
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be taken for
reuse.
