First-aid measures

As a general rule, in case of doubt or if symptoms persist, always call a doctor.
NEVER induce swallowing by an unconscious person.
4.1. Description of first aid measures
In the event of exposure by inhalation :
In the event of massive inhalation, remove the person exposed to fresh air. Keep warm and at rest.
If the person is unconscious, place in recovery position. Notify a doctor in all events, to ascertain whether observation and supportive hospital
care will be necessary.
If breathing is irregular or has stopped, effect mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and call a doctor.
In the event of splashes or contact with eyes :
Wash thoroughly with fresh, clean water for 15 minutes holding the eyelids open.
If there is any redness, pain or visual impairment, consult an ophthalmologist.
In the event of splashes or contact with skin :
Remove contaminated clothing and wash the skin thoroughly with soap and water or a recognised cleaner.
Watch out for any remaining product between skin and clothing, watches, shoes, etc.
If the contaminated area is widespread and/or there is damage to the skin, a doctor must be consulted or the patient transferred to hospital.
In the event of swallowing :
Do not give the patient anything orally.
In the event of swallowing, if the quantity is small (no more than one mouthful), rinse the mouth with water and consult a doctor.
Keep the person exposed at rest. Do not force vomiting.
Seek medical attention immediately, showing the label.
If swallowed accidentally, call a doctor to ascertain whether observation and hospital care will be necessary. Show the label.

Fire-fighting measures

Flammable.
Chemical powders, carbon dioxide and other extinguishing gas are suitable for small fires.
5.1. Extinguishing media
Keep packages near the fire cool, to prevent pressurised containers from bursting.
Suitable methods of extinction
In the event of a fire, use :
- sprayed water or water mist
- water with AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) additive
Prevent the effluent of fire-fighting measures from entering drains or waterways.
Unsuitable methods of extinction
In the event of a fire, do not use :
- water jet
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
A fire will often produce a thick black smoke. Exposure to decomposition products may be hazardous to health.
Do not breathe in smoke.
In the event of a fire, the following may be formed :
- carbon monoxide (CO)
- carbon dioxide (CO2)
5.3. Advice for firefighters
Due to the toxicity of the gas emitted on thermal decomposition of the products, fire-fighting personnel are to be equipped with autonomous
insulating breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Consult the safety measures listed under headings 7 and 8.
For non first aid worker
Because of the organic solvents contained in the mixture, eliminate sources of ignition and ventilate the area.
Avoid inhaling the vapors.
Avoid any contact with the skin and eyes.
If a large quantity has been spilt, evacuate all personnel and only allow intervention by trained operators equipped with safety apparatus.

Handling and storage

Requirements relating to storage premises apply to all facilities where the mixture is handled.
7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Always wash hands after handling.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-using.
Ensure that there is adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Fire prevention :
Handle in well-ventilated areas.
Vapours are heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and form mixtures that are explosive with air.
Prevent the formation of flammable or explosive concentrations in air and avoid vapor concentrations higher than the occupational exposure
limits.
Prevent the accumulation of electrostatic charges with connections to earth.
The mixture can become electrostatically charged : always earth during decanting operations. Wear antistatic shoes and clothing and floors
should be electrically conductive.
Use the mixture in premises free of naked flames or other sources of ignition and ensure that electrical equipment is suitably protected.
Keep packages tightly closed and away from sources of heat, sparks and naked flames.
Do not use tools which may produce sparks. Do not smoke.
Prevent access by unauthorised personnel.
Recommended equipment and procedures :
For personal protection, see section 8.
Observe precautions stated on label and also industrial safety regulations.
Avoid inhaling vapors.
Avoid inhaling vapors. Carry out any industrial operation which may give rise to this in a sealed apparatus.
Provide vapor extraction at the emission source and also general ventilation of the premises.
Also provide breathing apparatus for certain short tasks of an exceptional nature and for emergency interventions.
In all cases, recover emissions at source.
Avoid skin and eye contact with this mixture.
Packages which have been opened must be reclosed carefully and stored in an upright position.
Prohibited equipment and procedures :
No smoking, eating or drinking in areas where the mixture is used.
7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
No data available.
Storage
Keep the container tightly closed in a dry, well-ventilated place.
Keep away from all sources of ignition - do not smoke.
Keep well away from all sources of ignition, heat and direct sunlight.
Avoid accumulation of electrostatic charges.
The floor must be impermeable and form a collecting basin so that, in the event of an accidental spillage, the liquid cannot spread beyond this
area.
Packaging
Always keep in packaging made of an identical material to the original.
7.3. Specific end use(s)
No data available.
