If inhaled:
Consult a physician after significant exposure. If unconscious, place in recovery position and seek medical advice.

In case of skin contact:
If skin irritation persists, call a physician. If on skin, rinse well with water. If on clothes, remove clothes.

In case of eye contact:
Small amounts splashed into eyes can cause irreversible tissue damage and blindness. In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Continue rinsing eyes during transport to hospital. Remove contact lenses. Protect unharmed eye. Keep eye wide open while rinsing. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

If swallowed:

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
None known.

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

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
In case of fire, use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or car-bon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting:
Do not allow run-off from firefighting to enter drains or water courses.

Hazardous combustion products:
Carbon dioxide (CO2), Carbon monoxide, Metal oxides

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.

Further information:
Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
For safety reasons in case of fire, cans should be stored separately in closed containments.
Use a water spray to cool fully closed containers.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions:
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing dust. Remove all sources of ignition. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions:
Prevent product from entering drains. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up:
Contain spillage, and then collect with an electrically protected vacuum cleaner or by wet-brushing and place in container for disposal according to local regulations (see section 13).
Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling:
Avoid formation of respirable particles. Do not breathe vapours/dust. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.

Hygiene measures:
When using do not eat or drink. When using do not smoke. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully re-sealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Observe label precautions. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards.
Vent waste air only via suitable separators or scrubbers. Take action to prevent static discharges.
Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking. Open and empty container only by applying suction apparatus on the spot. Ensure effective ventilation.

Recommended storage temperature:
5 - 40 °C

Further information on storage stability:
No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
