First-aid measures

4.1 Description of first aid measures

After inhalation: fresh air.

In case of skin contact: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/ shower.

After eye contact: rinse out with plenty of water. Immediately call in ophthalmologist.

After swallowing: immediately make victim drink water (two glasses at most). Consult a physician.

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

The following applies to aromatic amines in general: systemic effect: methaemoglobinaemia with headache, cardiac dysrhythmia, drop in blood pressure, dyspnoea, and spasms, principal symptom: cyanosis (blue discolouration of the blood).

Irritation and corrosion

Risk of serious damage to eyes.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Consult local authorities for acceptable exposure limits.

Engineering measures : Use only with adequate ventilation. If user operations generate dust, fumes, gas, vapor

or mist, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls

to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory

limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas, vapor or dust concentrations

below any lower explosive limits. Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment.

Hygiene measures : Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before

eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate

techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash

contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers

are close to the workstation location.

Personal protection

Respiratory : Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved

standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be

based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe

working limits of the selected respirator.

Hands : Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be

worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is

necessary. Recommended: nitrile rubber

Eyes : Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk

assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists or

dusts. If operating conditions cause high dust concentrations to be produced, use dust

goggles. Recommended: safety glasses with side-shields , face shield

Skin : Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being

performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling

this product.

Recommended: lab coat

Environmental exposure

controls

: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure they

comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some cases,

fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be

necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.
