First-aid measures

Individuals contaminated by chemical exposure must be taken for medical attention if any adverse effect occurs. Rescuers should be taken for medical attention if necessary. Take a copy of the label and SDS to the health professional with contaminated individual.

Symptoms caused by exposure:

- Human adult: Hallucination, distorted perception, coma, diarrhoea, allergic dermatitis.

- Human child: Hallucination, distorted perception, sleep, ataxia, coma, somnolence, diarrhoea.

Medical attention and special treatment:

- Skin contact: Wash contacted area thoroughly with soap and water. Remove exposed or contaminated clothing, taking care not to contaminate eyes. Seek medical attention if irritation develops.

- Inhalation: If fumes or vapours are inhaled, or breathing difficulty is experienced, remove victim to fresh air. If necessary, use artificial respiration to support vital functions. Seek immediate medical attention if breathing difficulty persists.

- Ingestion: If the chemical is swallowed, call a physician or poison control centre for the most current information. If no professional advice is available, DO NOT induce vomiting, rinse the mouth. Never induce vomiting or give diluents (milk or water) to someone who is unconscious, having convulsions or who cannot swallow. Victims of chemical exposure must be taken for medical attention. Take a copy of the label and SDS with the victim to a health professional.

Medical conditions aggravated by exposure: Pre-existing skin, eye or respiratory problems may be aggravated by prolonged contact.

Recommendation to physicians: Treat symptoms and eliminate exposure.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable fire extinguishing materials: Carbon dioxide, foam, dry chemical, halon or water fog/mist.

Unsuitable fire extinguishing materials: Do not use full water jet.

Unusual fire and explosion hazards: This product is flammable & vapours may travel some distance and flash back if ignited.

Specific hazards arising from the substance: May produce toxic fumes of carbon monoxide and/or carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons if burning.

Special fire fighting procedures: Incipient fire responders should wear eye protection. Structural fire fighters must wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective equipment. Isolate materials not yet involved in the fire and protect personnel. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk; otherwise keep containers cool with carefully applied water spray/mist. If possible, prevent runoff water from entering storm drains, bodies of water or other environmentally sensitive areas.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Proper protective equipment should be used (see 'Exposure controls / personal protection'). Personnel should be trained for spill response operations.

Emergency procedures: Trained personnel following pre-planned procedures should handle non-incidental releases.

Spill containment / cleanup: Contain spilled material using sand or suitable hydrocarbon absorbent material. Avoid generating mists or sprays. Place all spill residues in an appropriate container and seal. Ventilate area and wash spill area after material pickup is complete.

Environmental precautions: Prevent run-off into drains and waterways. Decontaminate area thoroughly. Do not mix with wastes from other materials. Dispose of in accordance with applicable national and local procedures (see 'Disposal considerations').

Handling and storage

Work practices and hygiene practices: Read all labels before use. As with all chemicals; avoid getting this product on you or in you. Wear personal protective equipment (see 'Exposure controls / personal protection') and wash thoroughly after handling this product. Do not eat, drink, smoke or apply cosmetics while handling this product. Avoid breathing mists or sprays generated by this product. Use in a well ventilated location. Remove contaminated clothing immediately.

Storage and handling practices: Observe national and local regulations pertaining to the storage and handling of flammable liquids. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area away from direct sunlight. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Store away from sources of heat or ignition (sparks, open flame, hot surfaces). Store away from incompatible materials (oxidising agents and acids). Inspect regularly for damage and leaks. Take precautionary measures against static discharge: Ground container and receiving equipment, use only non-sparking tools and use explosion-proof electrical and other equipment. Drums should be kept in bunded storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Ventilation and engineering controls: Currently, international exposure limits are not established for the components of this product. Please check with a competent authority in each country for the most recently established limits. Use with adequate ventilation to ensure exposure levels are maintained below the limits.

Eye/ face protection: Splash goggles or safety glasses with side shields are recommended. If necessary, refer to the European Standard EN 166.

Hand protection: Compatible protective gloves are recommended. Wash hands after removing gloves. If necessary, refer to the European Standard DIN EN 374.

Body protection: Use body protection appropriate to the task. Coveralls, rubber aprons or chemical protective clothing made from natural rubber are generally acceptable depending on the task. If a hazard of injury to the feet exists due to falling objects, rolling objects or where objects may pierce the soles of the feet or where an employee’s feet may be exposed to electrical hazards, use appropriate foot protection. If necessary, refer to the relevant European Standards.

Respiratory protection: Ensure adequate ventilation. If exposure limits are exceeded, use only authorised respiratory protection. Refer to European Standard EN 149.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: None known.

Chemical stability: Stable under ordinary conditions of use and storage.

Conditions to avoid: Excessive heat, sparks, flames and other sources of ignition.

Incompatible materials: Strong oxidising or reducing agents. Protect from air.

Hazardous depolymerisation: Will not occur.

Hazardous decomposition products: When heated, decomposition may produce hydrocarbons, CO and/or CO2.

Disposal considerations

Preparing waste for disposal: Waste disposal must be in accordance with the appropriate national and local regulations.

Disposal methods: Dispose of containers and small amounts at an approved landfill site. For larger quantities contact a licensed professional waste disposal service.

Precautions: Prevent contamination of drains and/or waterways.
