First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Eye contact: Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Immediately
flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids.
Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes.
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician.

Inhalation: Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Remove
victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If it is
suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate
mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. If not breathing, if breathing is
irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by
trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouthto-
mouth resuscitation. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical
attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a
collar, tie, belt or waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a
fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under
medical surveillance for 48 hours.

Skin contact: Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Flush
contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly with water before removing it, or wear
gloves. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated
promptly by a physician. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly
before reuse.

Ingestion: Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Wash out
mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at
rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been swallowed and the
exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the
exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting
unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should
be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Chemical burns must be treated
promptly by a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband.

Protection of first-aiders: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. If it
is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate
mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. It may be dangerous to the person
providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Wash contaminated clothing
thoroughly with water before removing it, or wear gloves.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.
Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from
entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Do not breathe vapour or
mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.
For emergency responders: If specialised clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any
information in Section 8 on suitable and unsuitable materials. See also the
information in "For non-emergency personnel".
Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains
and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused
environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Small spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and
mop up if water-soluble. Alternatively, or if water-insoluble, absorb with an inert dry
material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Dispose of via a
licensed waste disposal contractor.
Large spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach the release
from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined
areas. Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand,
earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal
according to local regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Protective measures: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8). Do not get in
eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapour or mist. Do not ingest. If during
normal use the material presents a respiratory hazard, use only with adequate
ventilation or wear appropriate respirator. Keep in the original container or an
approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not
in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not
