First-aid measures

General advice
Remove contaminated, soaked clothing immediately and dispose of safely. First aider needs to protect himself.
Inhalation
Keep at rest. Aerate with fresh air. Call a physician immediately. Symptoms of poisoning may develop many hours
after exposure.
Eyes
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses.
Immediate medical attention is required.
Skin
Wash off with 3% acetic acid followed by large amounts of plain water for at least 5 min as a final step. Immediate
medical treatment is necessary as untreated wounds from corrosion of the skin heal slowly and with difficulty.
Ingestion
Call a physician immediately. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide (CO2), water spray
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or
released gases
Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of:
carbon monoxide (CO)
carbon dioxide (CO2)
nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons
Vapour is heavier than air and can travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flashback
Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Fire fighter protection should include a self-contained breathing apparatus (NIOSH-approved or EN 133) and full
fire-fighting turn out gear.
Precautions for fire-fighting
Cool containers / tanks with water spray. Water run-off and vapor cloud may be corrosive. Dike and collect water
used to fight fire. Keep people away from and upwind of fire.***

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing vapors or mists. Keep people away from and upwind of
spill/leak. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage. Do not discharge product into the aquatic environment without pretreatment
(biological treatment plant).
Methods for containment
Stop the flow of material, if possible without risk. Dike spilled material, where this is possible.
Methods for cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material. DO NOT use combustible materials such as sawdust. Keep in suitable,
closed containers for disposal. If liquid has been spilt in large quantities clean up promptly by scoop or vacuum.
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which
might cause ignition of organic vapours).

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not use compressed air for filling, discharging or handling. Wash
hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in
work rooms. Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge
(which might cause ignition of organic vapours). In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be
available. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Vapour is heavier than air and can travel
considerable distance to a source of ignition and flashback. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Technical measures/Storage conditions
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Handle and open container with care. Handle under
nitrogen, protect from moisture.
Suitable material
stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium
Advice on common storage
Incompatible products:
strong acids
oxidizing agents
