First-aid measures

General advice: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
If inhaled: Take the person into the fresh air and keep him warm, let him rest; if there is difficulty in breathing, medical advice is required.
In case of skin contact: In case of skin contact wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and plenty of water. Consult a doctor in the event of a skin reaction.
In case of eye contact: Hold the eyes open and rinse with preferably lukewarm water for a sufficiently long period of time (at least 10 minutes). Contact an ophthalmologist.
If swallowed: DO NOT induce the patient to vomit, medical advice is required.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam, extinguishing powder, in cases of larger fires, water spray should be used.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Burning releases carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and traces of hydrogen cyanide. In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

Advice for fire-fighters:
Firemen must wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Do not allow contaminated extinguishing water to enter the soil, ground-water or surface waters.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Put on protective equipment (see section 8). Keep away from sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation/exhaust extraction. Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environment related measures:
Do not allow to escape into waterways, wastewater or soil.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Take up with absorbent for chemicals or, if necessary with dry sand and store in closed containers.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
If an annex according to REACH-Regulation (EU) No. 1907/2006 is attached to this MSDS, the general conditions of use are further specified in the corresponding exposure scenarios.
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.
Provided good ventilation and/or local exhaust systems are used, the Workplace Exposure Limit(s) stated in section 8 should not be exceeded.
Explosion protection required.
The personal protective measures described in section 8 must be observed. The precautions required in the handling of solvents must be taken. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and the inhalation of vapor.
Keep away from foodstuffs, drinks and tobacco. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. Keep working clothes separately. Change contaminated or soaked clothing.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep container dry and tightly closed in a cool and well ventilated place. Further information on the storage conditions which must be observed to preserve quality can be found in our product information sheet.

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with applicable international, national and local laws, ordinances and statutes. For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) should be used.

Waste treatment methods
After containers have been emptied as thoroughly as possible (e.g. by pouring, scraping or draining until "drip-dry"), they can be sent to an appropriate collection point set up within the framework of the existing take-back scheme of the chemical industry. Containers must be recycled in compliance with national legislation and environmental regulations.

None disposal into waste water.
