First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

· General information:

Personal protection for the First Aider.

Take affected persons out of danger area and lay down.

Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product.

Remove breathing equipment only after contaminated clothing have been completely removed.

In case of irregular breathing or respiratory arrest provide artificial respiration.

Involve doctor immediately.

Symptoms of poisoning may even occur after several hours; therefore medical observation for at least 48 hours

after the accident.

· After inhalation:

Take affected persons into fresh air and keep quiet.

Call a doctor immediately.

In case of unconsciousness place patient stably in side position for transportation.

If breathing stops, provide artificial respiration.

Do not use mouth to mouth or mouth to nose resuscitation.

Use a respiratory bag or breathing device.

· After skin contact:

Take off immediately all contaminated clothing

Clean with water and soap. If possible, also wash with polyethylene glycol 400.

Call a doctor immediately.

· After eye contact:

Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water.

Protect unharmed eye.

Call a doctor immediately.

After swallowing:

Rinse out mouth and then drink plenty of water.

Never give anything to the mouth of an unconscious person.

Call for a doctor immediately.

A person vomiting while laying on their back should be turned onto their side.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

watery eyes



Breathing difficulty

Oedema of lungs




Gastric or intestinal disorders



Central nervous system disorders

· Information for doctor: No specific therapy is known.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

In cases of irritation to the lungs, initial treatment with Dexamethason metered aerosol.

Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

· Suitable extinguishing agents:

CO2, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.

· For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: Water with full jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

During heating or in case of fire poisonous gases are produced.

In case of fire, the following can be released:

Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide

Hydrogen chloride (HCl)

Advice for firefighters

· Protective equipment:

Do not inhale explosion gases or combustion gases.

Wear fully protective suit.

Mouth respiratory protective device.

Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.

· Additional information

Cool endangered receptacles with water spray.

Heating leads to increased pressure and danger of bursting and explosion.

Dispose of fire debris and contaminated fire fighting water in accordance with official regulations.

Collect contaminated fire fighting water separately. It must not enter the sewage system.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.

Ensure adequate ventilation

Keep away from ignition sources.

Avoid contact with any product

Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.

Environmental precautions:

Avoid release to the environment.

Prevent from spreading (e.g. by damming-in or oil barriers).

Do not allow to enter sewers/ surface or ground water.

Inform respective authorities in case of seepage into water course or sewage system.

Do not allow to penetrate the ground/soil.

In case of seepage into the ground inform responsible authorities.

Danger of explosion !

Keep contaminated washing water and dispose of appropriately.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Absorb with liquid-binding material (sand, diatomite, acid binders, universal binders, sawdust).

Send for recovery or disposal in suitable receptacles.

Dispose contaminated material as waste according to item 13.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Reference to other sections

See Section 7 for information on safe handling.

See Section 8 for information on personal protection equipment.

See Section 13 for disposal information.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Keep receptacles tightly sealed.

Ensure good interior ventilation, especially at floor level. (Fumes are heavier than air).

Take note of emission threshold.

Use closeable conveyance devices.

Only handle and refill product in closed systems.

Use solvent-proof equipment.

Restrict the quantity stored at the work place.

Prevent formation of aerosols.

Wear suitable respiratory protective device when aerosols are formed.

· Information about fire - and explosion protection:

Fumes can combine with air to form an explosive mixture.

Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke.

Protect against electrostatic charges.

Keep respiratory protective device available.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

· Storage:

· Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles:

Store in a cool, dry place.

Provide solvent resistant, sealed floor.

· Information about storage in one common storage facility:

Store away from feed and foodstuffs.

Keep away from acids and alkalis.

Store away from oxidising agents.

· Further information about storage conditions:

Open receptacle only under localised extractor facilities.

Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed receptacles.

Store receptacle in a well ventilated area.

Protect from exposure to the light.

Avoid contact with air / oxygen (formation of peroxide).

Store under lock and key and with access restricted to technical experts or their assistants only.

Maximum storage temperature: +15 °C

· Storage class: 3 - Flammable Liquids

Exposure controls / personal protection

Additional information about design of technical facilities: No further data; see item 7.

· 8.1 Control parameters

· Ingredients with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace: Not required.

· Additional information: The lists valid during the making were used as basis.

· 8.2 Exposure controls

· Personal protective equipment:

· General protective and hygienic measures:

Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing

Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.

Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

Do not inhale gases / fumes / aerosols.

Ensure that washing facilities are available at the work place.

Provide eye bath.

If larger quantities are handled provide emergency showers.

· Respiratory protection:

If vapours or aerosols occur wear suitable respiratory device.

In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use

self-contained respiratory protective device.

Short term filter device:

Filter A

· Protection of hands:

chemicals resistant gloves.

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation

Softening of the callus when wearing air-impermeable gloves is possible.

Check protective gloves prior to each use for their proper condition.

If only a short-term loading of the glove material by splashes is expected, tricoted gloves with higher wearability

for the better acceptance of the users are recommended.

After use of gloves apply skin-cleaning agents and skin cosmetics.

After each cleaning use treatment creams, for very dry skin greasy ointments.

· Material of gloves

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and

varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Butyl rubber, BR

Fluorocarbon rubber (Viton)

Recommended thickness of the material: ≥ 0.5 mm

· Penetration time of glove material

Breakthrough time ≥ 8 h

The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be


· Not suitable are gloves made of the following materials:

Natural rubber, NR

Chloroprene rubber, CR

Nitrile rubber, NBR

PVC or PE gloves

· Eye protection:

Tightly sealed goggles

If vapours or aerosols occur which may harm the eyes, wearing of a full mask is strongly recommended.

· Body protection:

Protective work clothing


Use protective suit.

Selection of protective clothing is subject to the specific kind of work and the corresponding risk potential.
