First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
Symptoms of poisoning may appear several hours later.
If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible).
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing immediately and dispose of safely.

Provide fresh air, seek medical advice if necessary.
Place patients at risk of losing consciousness in stabilized lateral position; artificial respiration as required.

Skin contact:
Wash off with soap and water.

Eye contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for 15 minutes and seek advice of an eye specialist.

Flush mouth immediately, then drink plenty of water, avoid vomiting, consult physician

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:

Symptoms of poisoning may not appear for several hours. Keep under medical supervision for at least 48 hours.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treatment of symptoms.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Liberation of:
nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Hydro-cyanic acid

Advice for firefighters:
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
In case of fire, remove the endangered barrels and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Keep out unprotected persons.
Wear a self contained respiratory apparatus.
Full protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid formation of dust. Ensure sufficient ventilation.
Do not breathe vapours/dust.
Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow to sink into ground water, sewers or into surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Collect up material. Transfer into suitable containers for recovery or disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.
Avoid dust formation.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see Exposure controls/personal protection.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Avoid dust formation.
Avoid residues of the product on the containers.
Provide sufficient ventilation and exhaust at the workplace.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Keep away from combustion sources such as sparks, flames and unprotected light sources
When using do not smoke.
Take precautionary measures against static charges, keep away from sources of ignition.

Store in the original receptable, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.

Further information:
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.

German storage class:
6.1A - Combustible, acute toxic Cat. 1 and 2 / very toxic hazardous materials

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls:

Engineering measures:
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery.
Provide for installation of emergency shower and eye bath.

Personal protective equipment:

Respiratory protection:
When handling for a short time:
Respirator with P2 particle filter
In the case of respirable dust, use self-contained breathing apparatus.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.

Hand protection:
Applies to handling for brief periods or of small amounts
Glove material Nitrile, for example, Dermatril 740, Kächele-Cama Latex GmbH (KCL), Germany
Material thickness 0.11 mm
Method DIN EN 374
Applies to handling for longer periods or of large amounts
Glove material Nitrile/Chloroprene, for example, Nitopren 717, Kächele-Cama Latex GmbH (KCL), Germany
Material thickness 0.65 mm
Method DIN EN 374
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166

Skin and body protection:
Select materials and equipment for physical protection depending on the concentration and volume of hazardous substances and the workplace involved.

Hygiene measures:
Prevent the formation of dust.
Remove immediately all contaminated clothing.
Provide adequate ventilation.
Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Do not inhale smoke, dust, vapor.

Protective measures
Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
Provide sufficient ventilation and exhaust at the workplace.
When using do not eat or drink.
Do not breathe dust.
The personal protective equipment used must meet the requirements of directive 89/686/EEC and amendments (CE certification).
