Consult a physician after significant exposure.
If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical
attention immediately.
In case of skin contact : If on skin, rinse well with water.
If on clothes, remove clothes.
Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
In case of eye contact : Remove contact lenses.
Flush eyes with water as a precaution.

4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media : Water mist
Water spray jet
Foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical
Unsuitable extinguishing
media
: High volume water jet
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting
: Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water
courses.
Hazardous combustion products
: Hazardous decomposition products due to incomplete combustion
5.3 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

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions : Remove all sources of ignition.
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Beware of vapours accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapours can accumulate in low areas.
6.2 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.
6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up : Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local
/ national regulations (see section 13).
6.4 Reference to other sections
For personal protection see section 8.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling : Avoid formation of aerosol.
Do not breathe vapours/dust.
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.
For personal protection see section 8.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.
Open drum carefully as content may be under pressure.
Advice on protection against
fire and explosion
: Do not spray on a naked flame or any incandescent material.
Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge
(which might cause ignition of organic vapours). Use only
explosion-proof equipment. Keep away from open flames, hot
surfaces and sources of ignition.
Hygiene measures : General industrial hygiene practice. Wash hands before
breaks and at the end of workday.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage
areas and containers
: Store in cool place. Containers which are opened must be
carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the
technological safety standards. To maintain product quality,
do not store in heat or direct sunlight.
Further information on storage stability
: Keep in a dry place. No decomposition if stored and applied
as directed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.2 Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Handle only in a place equipped with local exhaust (or other appropriate exhaust).
Personal protective equipment
Eye protection : Wear safety glasses with side shields or goggles.
Skin and body protection : Footwear protecting against chemicals
Respiratory protection : In the case of vapour formation use a respirator with an approved filter.
When workers are facing concentrations above the exposure
limit they must use appropriate certified respirators.

Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity
Stable at normal ambient temperature and pressure.
10.2 Chemical stability
No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions
Hazardous reactions : Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.
Stable under recommended storage conditions.
10.4 Conditions to avoid
Conditions to avoid : Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.
Heat, flames and sparks.
Extremes of temperature and direct sunlight.
10.5 Incompatible materials
Materials to avoid :
Oxidizing agents
10.6 Hazardous decomposition products
No decomposition if stored normally.

Disposal considerations

13.1 Waste treatment methods
Product : Dispose of in accordance with the European Directives on
waste and hazardous waste.
According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes
are not product specific, but application specific.
Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in
discussion with the waste disposal authorities.
The product should not be allowed to enter drains, water
courses or the soil.
Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with chemical or used container.
Send to a licensed waste management company.
Dispose of as hazardous waste in compliance with local and
national regulations.
Contaminated packaging : Empty remaining contents.
Dispose of as unused product.
Do not re-use empty containers
