First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures

Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and

transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). If not breathing, give artificial respiration.

First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety.

If inhaled:

Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately administer a

corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler.

On skin contact:

Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.

On contact with eyes:

Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,

consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:

Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: Information, i.e. additional information on symptoms and effects may be included in the

GHS labeling phrases available in Section 2 and in the Toxicological assessments available in

Section 11., Further symptoms are possible

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific

antidote. Pulmonary odema prophylaxis. Medical monitoring for at least 24 hours.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

dry powder, carbon dioxide, water spray, alcohol-resistant foam

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, nitrous gases

The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Vapours may form

explosive mixture with air. Pressure inside container is increased when heated, and may cause

explosion.

5.3. Advice for fire-fighters

Special protective equipment:

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:

Cool endangered containers with water-spray. Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately,

do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated

extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Use personal protective clothing. Information regarding personal protective measures, see section 8.

Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid inhalation.

Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and

clothing.

6.2. Environmental precautions

Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For small amounts: Pick up with absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder).

For large amounts: Dike spillage. Pump off product. Cover with blanket of foam (alcohol-resistant

foam).

Avoid sources of ignition. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Wear suitable

protective equipment. Cleaning operations should be carried out only while wearing breathing

apparatus. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing

environmental regulations. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed.

Incinerate or take to a special waste disposal site in accordance with local authority regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections

Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be

found in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling

Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Protect against moisture. Wear suitable

protective clothing and eye/face protection. Use only alkali-proof equipment.

Protection against fire and explosion:

The product is combustible. Vapours may form ignitable mixture with air. Prevent electrostatic charge

- sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Segregate from acids and acid forming substances. Segregate from strong oxidizing agents.

Suitable materials for containers: Carbon steel (Iron), Stainless steel 1.4301 (V2), Stainless steel

1.4541, Stainless steel 1.4401, Stainless steel 1.4571, Low density polyethylene (LDPE), High

density polyethylene (HDPE), glass

Further information on storage conditions: Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.

Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Storage class according to TRGS 510 (originally VCI, Germany): (3) Flammable liquids

Storage stability:

Storage duration: 24 Months

From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the

warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

7.3. Specific end use(s)

See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits

No occupational exposure limits known.

PNEC

freshwater: 0,2 mg/l

marine water: 0,02 mg/l

intermittent release: 0,27 mg/l

sediment (freshwater): 1,18 mg/kg

sediment (marine water): 0,118 mg/kg

soil: 0,117 mg/kg

STP: 10 mg/l

No PNEC oral derived, as accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

DNEL

worker:

Long-term exposure - local effects, Inhalation: 0,42 mg/m3

8.2. Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic

compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

Hand protection:

Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)

Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,

corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):

butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness

Suitable materials for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding >

30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)

nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness

chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove

manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.

temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in

practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

Eye protection:

Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.

Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

Body protection:

chemical-protection suit (f.e. according to EN 14605)

Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.
