First-aid measures

General:
Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area.
Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance.
Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

Description of first aid measures:
Inhalation:
Potential for exposure by inhalation if dusts or smoke are generated.
Move victims into fresh air.
With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen.
Consult a doctor.
If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact:
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact:
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.
When dealing with caustic substances, notify emergency physician immediately (key words: burns in eye).

Ingestion:
Rinse mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Obtain medical attention.
When dealing with caustic substances, notify emergency physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Irritation of skin and mucous membranes.
Corrosive daze, Headache, vertigo, somnolence (sleepiness), nausea.
Health injuries may be delayed.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Hazards:
Strongly irritating to corrosive.
Harmful in contact with skin and if swallowed.
Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.

Treatment:
The initial focus is only on the local action, possibly characterized by a progressive tissue irritation; caustic substances result in quickly progressing deep tissue damage.
In the eye, caustic dusts or smoke cause, depending on the intensity of exposure, severe irritation, destruction, and ablation of the epithelium of the conjunctiva and cornea, corneal clouding, edema and ulcerations.
Danger!
Possible loss of eyesight!
Superficial irritations and damage up to ulcerations and scarring develop on the skin.
After accidental absorption in the body, the pathology and clinical findings are dependent on the kinetics of the substance (quantity of absorbed substance, the absorption time, and the effectiveness of early elimination measures (first aid)/ excretion - metabolism).
A specific action of the substance is unknown.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Hazard-determining flue gases might develop in case of fire:
Oxides of phosphorus
Hydrogen bromide

Advice for firefighters:
Special fire fighting procedures:
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
In case of fire, remove the endangered barrels and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Keep out unprotected persons

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Full protective suit

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid formation of dust.
Ensure sufficient ventilation.
Keep out unprotected persons.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Collect up material.
Transfer into suitable containers for recovery or disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.
Avoid dust formation.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see exposure controls/personal protection

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Keep container tightly closed.
Provide sufficient ventilation and exhaust at the workplace.
Avoid residues of the product on the containers.
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing.
If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.
The personal protective equipment used must meet the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and amendments (CE certification).
It should be defined in the work place in the form of a risk analysis according to Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and amendments.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
When using do not smoke.
Take precautionary measures against static charges, keep away from sources of ignition.
Protect from the action of light.
Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.
Do not store together with: alkalis.
