First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
Inhalation: Move into fresh air and keep at rest. For breathing difficulties, oxygen may be necessary. Get medical attention. If breathing stops, pro vide artificial respiration.

Eye contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Get medical attention.

Skin contact: Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation persists after washing. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Destroy or thoroughly clean contaminated shoes.

Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give liquid to an unconscious person. Get medical attenti on.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: No data available.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:

Treatment: Treat supportively and symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

General fire hazards: Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extingishing media: Water spray, fog, CO2, dry chemical, or alcohol resistant foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.

Advice for firefighters:

Special Fire Fighting Procedures: No data available.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Prevent runoff from fire control or dilution from entering streams, sewers, or drinking water supply.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Use personal protective equipment. Immediately contact emergency perso nnel. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Follow all fire fighting procedures.

Environmental precautions: Do not release into the environment.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Use a vacuum cleaner. If not possible, moisten dust with water before it is collected with s hovel, broom or the like. Collect in containers and seal securely.. Prevent runoff from entering drains, sewers, or streams.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Do not breathe dust. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Specific end use(s): Pharmaceutical preparation.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:

Occupational exposure limits:
None of the components have assigned exposure limits.

Exposure controls:
Appropiate engineering controls: No data available.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

General information: Minimize open handling. Containment technologies suitable for controlling compounds are required to control at sourc e and to prevent migration of the compound to uncontrolled areas (e.g., open-face containment devices).

Eye/face protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). If the work environment or activity involves dusty conditions, mists o r aerosols, wear the appropriate goggles. Wear a faceshield or other full face protection if there is a potential for direct contact to the face with dusts, mists, or aerosols.

Skin protection:
Hand protection: Chemical resistant gloves. Consider double gloving.

Other: Additional body garments should be used based upon the task being performed (e.g., sleevelets, apron, gauntlets, disposa ble suits) to avoid exposed skin surfaces. Use appropriate degowning techniques to remove potentially contaminated cloth ing.

Respiratory Protection:
Use an appropriate approved air-purifying respirator equipped with HEPA cartridges/canisters where there is the potential for exceeding established occupational exposure limits or occupational exposure bands. When handling a compound in solution, a cartridge/canister appropriate for the solution may also be needed. Use a positive pressure, air-supplied, pressure demand tight fitting respirator (e.g., SCBA or airline equipped with emergency escape bottle) where there is a potential for uncontrolled releases in excess of the respirator's capabilities, where exposure levels are unknown or where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.

Hygiene measures: Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.

Environmental Controls: Not applicable

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: No data available.

Chemical stability: Stable

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Stable

Conditions to avoid: Excessive heat. Moisture.

Incompatible materials: None under normal conditions.

Hazardous decomposition products: Thermal decomposition or combustion may liberate carbon oxides and other toxic gases or vapors.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:

General information: Incineration is the most effective method of disposal in most instances. Do not allow runoff to sewer, waterway or ground. Operations that involve the crushing or shredding of waste materials or returned goods should take into account recommended exposure limits where they exist.

Disposal Methods: Disposal must be in accordance with applicable national, state/provincial, and/or local regulations.
