First-aid measures

Protection of first-aiders First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection
and use the recommended protective clothing (chemical resistant gloves, splash protection).
If potential for exposure exists refer to "personal protection" for specific personal protective equipment.

If inhaled Move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician.

In case of skin contact: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing. Seek medical
attention if symptoms occur or irritation persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
Discard items which cannot be decontaminated, including leather articles such as shoes, belts and watchbands.
Suitable emergency safety shower facility should be immediately available.

In case of eye contact: Wash immediately and continuously with flowing water for at
least 30 minutes. Remove contact lenses after the first 5 minutes and continue washing. Obtain prompt medical
consultation, preferably from an ophthalmologist. Suitable emergency eye wash facility should be immediately available.

If swallowed: Do not induce vomiting. Give one cup (8 ounces or 240 ml) of water or milk if available and transport to a medical facility. Do not give anything by mouth unless the person is fully conscious.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media Water fog or fine spray.
Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. Dry chemical fire extinguishers. Foam.
Alcohol resistant foams (ATC type) are preferred. General purpose synthetic foams (including AFFF) or protein foams may function, but will be less effective.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use direct water stream.
Straight or direct water streams may not be effective to extinguish fire.

Specific hazards during firefighting:
Violent steam generation or eruption may occur upon application of direct water stream to hot liquids.
Flammable concentrations of vapor can accumulate at temperatures above flash point; Flammable mixtures may exist within the vapor space of containers at room temperature.
Vapors are heavier than air and may travel a long distance and accumulate in low lying areas. Ignition and/or flash back may occur.
Hazardous combustion products:
During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating.
Combustion products may include and are not limited to:
Carbon dioxide.
Carbon monoxide.
Nitrogen oxides.

Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves). Avoid
contact with this material during fire fighting operations. Ifcontact is likely, change to full chemical resistant fire fighting clothing with self-contained breathing apparatus. If this is not available, wear full chemical resistant clothing with selfcontained breathing apparatus and fight fire from a remote location. For protective equipment in post-fire or non-fire
clean-up situations, refer to the relevant sections.
Further information Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry.
Do not use direct water stream. May spread fire.
Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect personnel and minimize property damage.
Burning liquids may be extinguished by dilution with water.
Move container from fire area if this is possible without
Water may not be effective in extinguishing fire.
Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers and fire affected zone until fire is out and danger of reignition has passed.
Stay upwind. Keep out of low areas where gases (fumes) can accumulate. Eliminate ignition sources.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions Check area with combustible gas detector before reentering
area. Ground and bond all containers and handling equipment.
Keep personnel out of low areas.
Keep upwind of spill. Ventilate area of leak or spill. No smoking in area.
Only trained and properly protected personnel must be involved in clean-up operations.
For large spills, warn public of downwind explosion hazard.
Vapor explosion hazard. Keep out of sewers.
Eliminate all sources of ignition in vicinity of spill or released vapor to avoid fire or explosion.
Evacuate area. Use appropriate safety equipment.

Environmental precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater.

Methods for cleaning up: Pump with explosion-proof equipment. If available, use foam to smother or supress.
Contain spilled material if possible. Ground and bond all containers and handling equipment.
Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling Spills of these organic materials on hot fibrous insulations may lead to lowering of the autoignition
temperatures possibly resulting in spontaneous combustion.
Containers, even those that have been emptied, can contain vapors. Do not cut, drill, grind,weld, or perform similar operations on or near empty containers.
Electrically bond and ground all containers and equipment before transfer or use of material.
Avoid breathing mist.
Keep away from heat, sparks and flame.
No smoking, open flames or sources of ignition in handling and storage area.
Never use air pressure for transferring product.
Vapors are heavier than air and may travel a long distance and accumulate in low lying areas.
Ignition and/or flash back may occur.
Use of non-sparking or explosion-proof equipment may be necessary, depending upon the type of operation.
Do not swallow.
Wash thoroughly after handling.
Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing.
Keep container closed.
Use only with adequate ventilation.
Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Minimize sources of ignition, such as static build-up, heat, spark or flame. Avoid moisture. Store in a cool, dry place.
Keep containers tightly closed when not in use to prevent formation of carbonate salts. Do not store in:
Galvanized containers. Zinc. Aluminum. Copper. Copper alloys.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary for some operations.
Use engineering controls to maintain airborne level below exposure limit requirements or guidelines.
If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, use only with adequate ventilation.
Personal protective equipment
Eye protection
Use chemical goggles.
Chemical goggles should be consistent with EN 166 or equivalent.
Hand protection
Use chemical resistant gloves classified under Standard EN374: Protective gloves against chemicals and micro-organisms.
Examples of preferred glove barrier materials include: Polyethylene. Chlorinated polyethylene. Ethyl vinyl alcohol laminate ("EVAL"). Examples of acceptable glove barrier materials include: Viton. Butyl rubber. Neoprene. Natural rubber ("latex").
Polyvinyl chloride ("PVC" or "vinyl"). Nitrile/butadiene rubber ("nitrile" or "NBR"). Avoid gloves made of: Polyvinyl alcohol ("PVA"). When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a glove with a protection class of 5 or higher (breakthrough time
greater than 240 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended. When only brief contact is expected, a glove with a protection class of 3 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 60 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended. NOTICE: The selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace should also take into account all relevant
workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which may be handled, physical requirements (cut/puncture
protection, dexterity, thermal protection), potential body reactions to glove materials, as well as the instructions/specifications
provided by the glove supplier.
Skin and body protection
Use protective clothing chemically resistant to this material. Selection of specific items such as face shield, boots, apron, or full body suit will depend on the task.
Respiratory protection
No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required.
