First-aid measures

- General advice:

 If  irritation  or  other  symptoms  occur  or  persist  from  any  route  of  exposure,  remove  the  affected  individual  from  the  area:  see  a  physician/get  medical  attention.

- Following inhalation:

 If  affected,  remove  to  fresh  air.  If  breathing  is  difficult,  give  oxygen.  If  not  breathing,  give  artificial  respiration.  Call  a  POISON  CENTER  or  doctor/physician  if  you  feel  unwell.

- Following skin contact:

 Immediately  remove  contaminated  clothing  and  shoes.  Wash  the  affected  area  with  plenty  of  soap  and  water  until  no  evidence  of  the  chemical  remains  (at  least  15-20  minutes).  Launder  clothing  before  reuse.  If  skin  irritation  occurs:  Get  medical  advice/attention.

- Following eye contact:

 Immediately  flush  eyes  with  plenty  of  clean  water  for  an  extended  time,  not  less  than  fifteen  (15)  minutes.    Flush  longer  if  there  is  any  indication  of  residual  chemical  in  the  eye.  Ensure  adequate  flushing  of  the  eyes  by  separating  the  eyelids  with  fingers  and  roll  eyes  in  a  circular  motion.  If  eye  irritation  persists:  Get  medical  advice/attention.

- Following ingestion:

Do  not  induce  vomiting.  Extreme  care  must  be  taken  to  prevent  aspiration.  If  victim  is  unconscious  and  breathing,  position  the  person  on  their  side  to  prevent  aspiration.  Never  give  anything  by  mouth  to  an  unconscious  person.  Rinse  out  the  mouth  with  water.  Get  medical  attention  immediately.

- Most important symptoms and effects: Irritation. Pre-existing  skin  problems  may  be  aggravated  by  prolonged  or  repeated  contact.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media:

Use  dry  chemical,  "alcohol"  foam,  carbon  dioxide  or  water  spray.

- Unsuitable extinguishing media:

Do  not  use  direct  water  stream.    May  spread  fire.

- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Unusual  fire/explosion  hazards:  Issue  warning:    combustible  liquid.    Eliminate  all  ignition  sources.    Ventilate  the  area.    If  spill  is  large,  be  prepared  to  isolate  the  hazard  area.    Deny  access  to  the  spill  area  to  persons  who  are  not  involved  in  the  cleanup  and/or  who  have  not  been  properly  trained  in  spill  management  of  hazardous/flammable  liquids.    Vapors  may  explode  if  ignited  in  an  enclosed  area.    Run  off  to  sewer  may  cause  a  fire  or  explosion  hazard.    Protect  product  from  flames  of  any  kind;  maintain  proper  clearance  when  using  heat  devices,  etc.    Closed  container  may  rupture  (due  to  build  up  in  pressure)  when  exposed  to  extreme  heat.    Product  may  burn  if  an  ignition  source  is  present.Hazardous  combustion  products:  Irritating  or  toxic  substances  may  be  emitted  upon  burning,  combustion  or  decomposition.

- Advice for fire fighter: Use  water/water  spray  to  keep  fire-exposed  containers  cool.    Water  spray  may  be  used  to  flush  spills  away  from  exposuresand  to  dilute  spills  to  non-combustible  mixtures.    Do  not  flush  combustible  liquids  into  sewer  as  a  fire  or  vapor  explosionhazard  may  result.    Never  direct  a  hose  stream  directly  onto  a  burning  flammable/combustible  liquid.    Solid  or  straight  hosestream  will  cause  fire  to  spread  if  directed  onto  a  burning  spill  or  into  an  open  container  of  burning  liquid.    Wear  self-contained breathing  apparatus  (SCBA)  equipped  with  a  full  facepiece  and  operated  in  a  pressure-demand  mode  (or  other  positivepressure  mode)  and  approved  protective  clothing.  Personnel  without  suitable  respiratory  protection  must  leave  the  area  toprevent  significant  exposure  to  hazardous  gases  from  combustion,  burning  or  decomposition.    In  an  enclosed  or  poorlyventilated  area,  wear  SCBA  during  cleanup  immediately  after  a  fire  as  well  as  during  the  attack  phase  of  firefighting  operations.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions:

Eliminate  ignition  sources.    Ventilate  areasof  spill.    Personal  Protective  Equipment  must  be  worn.

- Protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Eye/face  protection - Safety  glasses  or  goggles  required. Hand  protection - Avoid  skin  contact  when  mixing  or  handling  the  material  by  wearing  impervious  and  chemical  resistant  gloves.  In  case  of  prolonged  immersion  or  frequently  repeated  contact,  gloves  with  breakthrough  times  greater  than  480  minutes  (protection  class  6)  are  recommended.    For  brief  contact  or  splash  applications,  gloves  with  breakthrough  times  of  30  minutes  or  greater  are  recommended  (protection  class  2  or  greater).    Suggested  materials  for  protective  gloves:  Polyvinyl  chloride  (PVC),  Viton.    The  protective  gloves  to  be  used  must  comply  with  the  specifications  of  the  EC  directive  89/686/EEC  and  the  resultant  standard  EN  374.  Suitability  and  durability  of  a  glove  is  dependent  on  usage  (e.g.  frequency  and  duration  of  contact,  other  chemicals  which  may  be  handled,  chemical  resistance  of  glove  material  and  dexterity).  Always  seek  advice  of  the  glove  supplier  as  to  the  most  suitable  glove  material. Skin  and  body  protection - Use  good  laboratory/workplace  procedures  including  personal  protective  clothing:  labcoat,  safety  glasses  and  protective  gloves. Respiratory  protection - Wear  an  approved  respirator  (e.g.,  an  organic  vapor  respirator,  a  full  face  air  purifying  respirator  for  organic  vapors,  or  a  self-contained  breathing  apparatus)  whenever  exposure  to  aerosol,  mist,  spray,  fume  or  vapor  exceed  the  applicable  exposure  limit(s). Further  information - Eyewash  fountains  and  safety  showers  are  recommended  in  the  work  area.

- Environmental precautions:

Do  not  flush  liquid  into  public  sewer,  water  systems  or  surface  waters.

- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Contain  by  diking  with  sand,  earth  or  other  non-combustible  material.    Wear  proper  personal  protective  clothing  andequipment.  Absorb  spill  with  an  inert  material.  Place  into  labeled,  closed  container;  store  in  safe  location  to  await  disposal. Change  contaminated  clothing  and  launder  before  reuse.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling:

As  with  any  chemical  product,  use  good  laboratory/workplace  procedures.    Do  not  cut,  puncture,  or  weld  on  or  near  thecontainer.    Do  not  breathe  vapor,  aerosol,  mist  or  gas.    Do  not  ingest,  taste,  or  swallow.    Wash  thoroughly  after  handling  thisproduct.    Always  wash  up  before  eating,  smoking  or  using  the  facilities.    Use  under  well-ventilated  conditions.    Avoid  eye  andskin  contact.    Wash  contaminated  clothing  before  reuse.    Provide  eyewash  fountains  and  safety  showers  in  the  work  area. Bond  and  ground  all  containers  when  transferring  chemical.    Eliminate  ignition  sources  (e.g.,  sparks,  static  buildup,  excessiveheat,  etc.).    Use  spark-proof  tools  and  equipment.    Vapors  may  travel  to  distant  ignition  sources.

- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store  in  combustible  storage  area  and  away  from  heat  and  open  flame.    Keep  away  from  heat,  sparks  and  open  flames.    Store under  well-ventilated  conditions.    Keep  container  upright,  when  not  in  use,  to  prevent  leakage.    Avoid  storing  containers  indirect  sunlight  as  vapors  may  accumulate  in  the  head  space  creating  pressure.    Store  this  material  away  from  stron oxidising materials.    Do  not  store  in  open,  unlabeled  or  mislabeled  containers.    Keep  container  closed  when  not  inuse.    Emptied  container  may  contain  residual  vapors  or  liquid  which  may  ignite  or  explode.    Do  not  reuse  empty  containerwithout  commercial  cleaning  or  reconditioning.    Bond  and  ground  all  containers  when  transferring  chemical.
