First-aid measures

- Eyes: Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing water for at least 15-20 minutes, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Remove contact lenses if easy to do so. Continue rinsing. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

- Skin: Immediately take off all contaminated clothing. Wash thoroughly with lukewarm, gently flowing water and non-abrasive soap for 15-20 minutes. Wash contaminated clothes before reuse. Seek immediate medical attention.

- Inhalation: Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Call a physician if you feel unwell.

- Ingestion: If swallowed call a poison center if you feel unwell. Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting by use of emetics. Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: Appropriate extinguishing media: Dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, and alcohol resistant foam. Water may also be used. Water can be effective in cooling down the fire-exposed containers and Knocking down the vapours. Water jets may be used to flush spills away and dilute the same to nonflammable mixtures fog or alcohol-resistant foam by directing streams to the periphery of the fires to prevent spread.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

- Toxic vapors may be released on thermal decomposition including nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxides.

- High vapor concentration may result in an explosion hazard.

- Vapors are heavier than air. May travel considerable distance from source and flashback.

Advice for firefighters

- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe vapors.

- Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank.

- Always stay away from tanks engulfed in fire.

- For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn.

- If tank, rail car or tank truck is involved in a fire, ISOLATE for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions; also, consider initial evacuation for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions.

- Fire fighters must wear Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and full protective clothing. The chemical is harmful in contact with skin.

- Report any run-off of fire waters contaminated with this chemical as per local and federal procedures applicable.

Accidental release measures

For non-emergency personnel

- Wear protective clothing, full boots, impervious gloves, safety glasses and Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), as may be deemed appropriate.

- Avoid breathing vapors and contact with skin and eyes.

- Shut off leak source if possible.

- Shut off all possible sources of ignition.

- Wipe up.

- Decontaminate all equipment.

- Use non-sparking tools.

For emergency personnel

- Wear protective clothing, full boots, impervious gloves, safety glasses and Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), as may be deemed appropriate.

- Alert Emergency Responders and tell them location and nature of hazard.

- Shut off all possible sources of ignition and increase ventilation.

- Stop leaks if possible.

- Clean up all spills immediately following relevant Standard Operating Procedures.

- Avoid breathing vapors and contact with skin and eyes.

Environmental precautions.

- Clean up all spills immediately following relevant Standard Operating Procedures.

- Inform authorities in event of contamination of any public sewers, drains or water bodies.

- Wipe up.

- Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water and watercourses.

- Collect recoverable product into labeled containers for recycling, recovery or disposal.

- Contain spill with sand, earth or vermiculite.

- Spread area with lime or absorbent material, and leave for at least 1 hour before washing.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up.

- Clean up all tools and equipment.

- Decontaminate all equipment.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

- Do not breathe vapor or mist.

- Wear protective gloves/clothing and eye/face protection.

- Wash thoroughly after handling.

- Ground and secure containers when dispensing or pouring product.

- Avoid contact with incompatible materials.

- When handling, DO NOT eat, drink or smoke.

- Launder contaminated clothing before re-use.

- If on skin or hair, IMMEDIATELY remove all contaminated clothing and rinse/shower with plenty of water.

- Use in a well ventilated place/Use protective clothing commensurate with exposure levels.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

- Store at ambient temperature in a dry and well ventilated place

- Store in a flame proof area

- Store away from incompatible materials.

- Keep securely closed when not in use

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate Engineering Controls:

- Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the relevant airborne concentrations below their respective occupational exposure limits. Local ventilation is usually preferred. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.

Personal Protection:

- Protective clothing should be selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration and quantity of the hazardous substances handled. The resistance of the protective clothing to chemicals should be ascertained with the respective supplier.

- Eyes: Safety goggles/ Chemical Safety glasses and Face shield.

- Clothing: Boots and clothing to prevent contact.

- Respirator: Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.

- Hands:

      In full contact:

       Glove Material: viton

       Layer thickness: 0.70 mm
