First-aid measures

Skin Contact: Wash exposed area twice with soap and water. The exposed area should be examined by medical personnel if irritation or pain persists after the area has been washed. Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Prolonged contact with contaminated clothing or shoes/boots may cause burns to appear after an extended exposure period.

Eye Contact: Rinse eyes immediately with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the eyelids. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do – continue rinsing.

Inhalation: Remove from exposure area to fresh air immediately. Keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION.

Ingestion: Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. IF SWALLOWED: Call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician immediately.

Do NOT induce vomiting, this material is corrosive. Give oxygen if respiration is shallow. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Flammability Classification: Highly Flammable, Flammability Category 3.
Appropriate Extinguishing Media: Water, fog, Foam, Alcohol foam, Carbon dioxide, Dry chemical.

Hazardous Products of Combustion: Toxic fumes may be released upon thermal decomposition (cyanides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide).

Potential for Dust Explosion: Not applicable.

Special Flammability Hazards: Not applicable.

Basic Fire Fighting Guidance: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing (i.e., Bunker gear). Skin and eye contact should be avoided. Normal fire fighting procedures may be used.

Accidental release measures

Containment Techniques and Clean-up Procedures:
Isolate the hazard area and deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel. Remove all ignition sources. Ventilate the area of spill or leak. Wear protective equipment during clean-up. For small spills, use suitable absorbent material and collect for later disposal.

For large spills, the area may require diking to contain the spill. Material can then be collected (e.g., suction) for later disposal. After collection of material, flush area with water. Dispose of the material in accordance with standard practice for disposal of potentially hazardous materials as required by applicable national, state or local laws.

Handling and storage

Keep container tightly closed.
Maintain cool, dry, ventilated conditions for storage. Should be periodically inspected.
Protect containers against physical damage.
Outside or detached storage is preferable. Inside storage should be in standard flammable liquids storage room or cabinet. Keep away from strong acids and oxidizing agents.
Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces.
No smoking, eating, drinking.
Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting/equipment.
Ground/bond container and receiving equipment.
Use only non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against static discharge.

Impervious secondary containment with volume greater than the largest container / vessel, closed systems, and bonded and grounded tanks, lines and vessels, applicable storage tank controls i.e. pressure and temperature gauging, pressure relief venting with routing to safe areas, applicable processing vessel controls, i.e. rupture discs with routing to overfill vessels of adequate capacity, ventilation for storage areas,
Processing in areas of good ventilation or in closed systems,
Transfers in closed, dedicated lines,
Electrical equipment with explosion proof rating.

Proper operations and storage conditions:
Controls to maintain the substance at appropriate temperature and pressure.
Isolation from uncontrolled heat sources, such as steam lines.
Monitor of substance vapor concentration prior to activities such as equipment maintenance and repair.
Implementation of formal hot work procedures.

Organization Controls
Written operating procedures for storage, transfer, substance use and emergency.
Training of employees on chemical process safety and emergency response.
Implementation of formal hot work procedures
Do not cut, weld , braze, solder, drill, grind or expose containers to heat, sparks, static electriciy, or other sources of ignition; they may explode
Access to SDS.

Other equipment, including fire control systems, consistent with and required for the storage and use of flammable materials.
Local Exhaust Ventilation: 90% efficiency minimum.

Environmental Risk Management Measures:
Compliance with local water discharge regulations.
Compliance with local air discharge regulations.
Impermeable surfaces.
Avoid release to the environment.
Keep away from drains / Do not empty into drains.
Substance must not enter sewage system.
This material and its container must be disposed in a safe way as a hazardous waste.

Practices to Minimize Risk:
Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection.
Do not breathe mist/vapours/spray.
Wear appropriate protective equipment when performing maintenance on contaminated equipment.
Wash hands thoroughly before eating or smoking after handling this material.

Dangerous Incompatibility Reactions:
Avoid contact with strong acids and oxidizing agents.

Incompatibilities with Materials of Construction:
May cause some forms of plastics and rubbers to deteriorate.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal Protective Equipment:
Use approved chemical cartridge-respirator or supplied air breathing equipment (Control efficiency: 95%).
Chemical goggles should be worn at all times; use face shields as conditions warrant.
Neoprene, nitrile or PVC-coated gloves.
Impervious clothing, protective clothing with long sleeves, and boots.

Ventilation: All operations should be conducted in well-ventilated conditions. Local exhaust ventilation should be provided to keep airborne concentrations below exposure limits.

Specific activity training including personal protective equipment requirements.

Local exhaust except outside unload : 90 % efficiency
