First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move to fresh air.  If irritation occurs seek medical

attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Remove contact lens and pour a gentle stream of water  over

the affected eye for at least 15 minutes.  Seek medical

attention if irritation occurs.

Emergency measure - Skin: Run a gentle stream of water over the affected area for 15

minutes.  A mild soap may be used if available.  Seek

medical attention if irritation occurs.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Rinse the inside of the mouth with water.  Do not induce

vomiting.  Drink plenty of water.  Never give anything by

mouth to an unconcious person.  If irritation occurs seek

medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, water spray, sand, dry powder, carbon dioxide, foam.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a

fire, evolving noxious fumes (e.g. carbon oxides, smoke)

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: The substance is a solid and does not present a hazard if

spilled.  Product can be recovered by vacuuming into a

container (taking care not to generate dust).

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 avoid exposure.

Local exhaust ventilation will be provided during all

processing steps.

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 purpose, and conform to EN149FFP1

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Sealed plastic bottles contained in sealed and appropriately

labelled cardboard box containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Incompatible with strong oxidisers and acids.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous

Dust explosion: The substance is an organic solid and therefore the

possibility of a dust explosion exists.

Avoid dust formation and only use in an area provided with

appropriate local exhaust ventilation.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: 611     Recovery by mechanical collection

Minor spillages may be recovered by vacuuming into a

container.  However, such material would not be able to be

reused and would be disposed of by incineration.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is not

hazardous at this supply level.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: 661     Incinerator with flue gas scrubbing

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: 641 Removal by controlled discharge to a waste water

treatment plant.

Waste water containing the substance from lens washing is

sent to a WWTP.  Due to the very small quantities involved,

adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be

unlikely.
