First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Using appropriate personal protective equipment , move

exposed subject to fresh air. If breathing is difficult or

ceases, ensure and maintain ventilation. Give oxygen as

appropriate. The exposed subject should be kept warm and at

rest. Obtain medical attention in cases of known or possible

over exposure, or with symptoms including chest pain,

difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness or other adverse

effects, which may be delayed.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with clean and gently flowing water.

Continue for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, remove

contaminated clothing and flush exposed area with large

amounts of water. Obtain medical attention immediately if

skin reaction occurs, which may be immediate or delayed.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Obtain immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide, dry powder or foam extinguishers are


Do not use water extinguishers. Water jets may intensify the

fire or be ineffective.

Product arising from burning: Oxides of carbon and nitrogen

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Personal Precautions: Stop leak and eliminate all sources of

ignition (no smoking, sparks or flames). Fence or cordon

the affected area and do not allow individuals to touch or

walk through the spilled material unless wearing appropriate

protective clothing. Wear protective clothing and equipment

consistent with the degree of hazard.

Environmental precautions: Prevent entry into waterways,

sewers, surface drainage systems and poorly ventilated

areas. If spill is outdoors, cover with plastic sheet to

minimise spreading or contact with rain.

Clean-up methods: Spread an inert absorbant on the spill and

place in a suitable, properly labelled container for

recovery or disposal.

Decontamination procedure: No specific decontamination or

detoxification procedures have been identified for this

material. Consider use of water, detergent solutions or

other soluble solvents for clean-up and decontamination


Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to minimise exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166.

Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be

used, it must be capable of adequately controlling

exposure, be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the

appropriate international or national standards, such as a

dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Keep in tightly closed containers or packages away from

sources of ignition.

Avoid prolonged storage at elevated temperatures (greater

than room temperature, approximately 20 Deg.C).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The material should be package in suitably sized polylined

steel drums.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from

minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically

or technically feasible, and such waste material will be

disposed of by incineration. In principle, it  may be

possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated

material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is

harmful by acute oral ingestion, corrosive and a potential

skin sensitiser.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the

hazardous health properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning

under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon and

nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly

tothe sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None known.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: None known.
