First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:

      In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention.

      In case of inhalation:

      If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.

      In case of skin contact:

      Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a physician.

      In case of eyes contact:

      Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.

      In case of ingestion:

      Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:

      Harmful if swallowed. May cause an allergic skin reaction.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:

      If skin irritation or rash occurs, get medical advice/attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing media:       Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:       Not available.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture       Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions. - Carbon oxides.

Advice for firefighters:       Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

     For non-emergency personnel:       Use personal protective equipment. Avoid breathing vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

     For emergency responders:       Wear an appropriate NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator if vapor is generated.

Environmental Precautions:       Do not allow material to be released to the environment without proper governmental permits.

Methods for Containment and Cleaning up:       Soak up with inert absorbent material and dispose of as hazardous waste. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

     Protective measures:       Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist. Normal measures for preventive fire protection.

     Advice on general occupational hygiene:       Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas. Wash hands after use. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:       Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.

Specific end use(s):       Not applicable.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:

     Occupational exposure limits:       Not available.

     Additional exposure limits under the conditions of use:       Not available.

     DNEL/DMEL and PNEC-Values:       Not available.

Exposure controls:

     Appropriate engineering controls:       Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits.

     Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

     Eye/face protection:       Face shield and safety glasses Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

     Hand protection:       Handle with gloves.

     Body protection:       Complete suit protecting against chemicals, The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

     Respiratory protection:       Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator with multi-purpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

     Thermal hazards:       Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent heat.

     Environmental exposure controls:       Avoid discharge into the environment.

                                                               According to local regulations, Federal and official regulations.
