First-aid measures

If inhaled:

If breathed in, move person into fresh air.

If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of skin contact:

Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.

Call a physician immediately.

Wash off immediately with plenty of water.

Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.

In case of eye contact:

Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 5 minutes.

Remove contact lenses.

If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

If swallowed:

If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious).

Call a physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed


Skin contact may provoke the following symptoms:

Mild skin irritation

May cause sensitisation by skin contact.

In case of eye contact, not expected to cause eye irritation

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

Water mist

Dry powder


Carbon dioxide (CO2)


Aqueous film forming foam (AFFF).

Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Water spray jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazardous combustion products: Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters:

In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Firefighters must wear fire resistant personal protective equipment.

Specific extinguishing methods: In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions:

Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Environmental precautions: Should not be released into the environment.

Methods for cleaning up:

Large spills: Dam up. Soak up with inert absorbent material. Keep in properly labelled containers.

Small spills: Gently cover the spill with an absorbent towel or pad.

Large spills + Small spills: Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. Treat recovered material as described in the section "Disposal considerations".

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling:

To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.

Use personal protective equipment as required.

Avoid inhalation, ingestion and contact with skin and eyes.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers:

Store at room temperature in the original container. To maintain product quality, do not store in heat or direct sunlight. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Recommended storage temperature: 15 - 25 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures

Engineering controls should be used as the primary means to control possible exposures. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep exposure levels below recommended exposure limits.

All personal protective equipment should be based on a risk assessment. Consult a Environment Health Safety expert if necessary.

Personal protective equipment

Eye protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles

Hand protection

Material: Nitrile rubber

Remarks: Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact). Impervious gloves

Skin and body protection: chemical resistant apron, coat or coverall

Respiratory protection:

Engineering controls should always be the primary method of controlling exposures.

If respiratory protective equipment is needed for certain activities, the type as well as the corresponding protection factor will depend upon the risk assessment and air concentrations, hazards, physical and warning properties of substances present.

Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards.

Respirator with a vapour filter


Protective measures: The type of protective equipment must be selected based on the Environmental Health and Safety risk assessment. Consult a Environmental Health and Safety expert if necessary.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: None reasonably foreseeable.

Chemical stability: Stable under recommended storage conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

Conditions to avoid: Heat, flames and sparks. To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.

Incompatible materials, materials to avoid: Oxidizing and spontaneously flammable products

Hazardous decomposition products: Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Sulphur oxides

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Product: In accordance with National, Federal, State and Local regulations.

Must be incinerated in a suitable incineration plant holding a permit delivered by the competent authorities.

Contaminated packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or disposal.
