First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air if effects occur. Consult a physician.

Note to physician: No specific antidote. Supportive care.
Treatment based on judgement of the physician in response to
reactions of the patient.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediate and continuous irrigation with flowing water for
at least 30 minutes is imperative. Prompt medical
consultation is essential.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and plenty of water. Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Consult a physician who will decide on need and method of
emptying the stomach. If lavage is performed, suggest
endotracheal and/or oesophageal control. Danger from lung
aspiration must be weighed against toxicity when considering
emptying the stomach.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide.

Water must not be used.

Product arising from burning: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, aldehydes, titanium oxides,
silicon oxide, nitrogen oxides. Other decomposition and
combustion products are emitted in the case of incomplete

Black sooty smoke is emitted.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Minimize breathing gases, vapours, fumes or decomposition
products. Use supplied-air breathing equipment.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from the immediate vicinity and
extinguish any sources of ignition.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment including
chemical protective clothing, gloves, eye protection,
footwear and respiratory protection as specified in Section

Absorb spillages with a suitable inert material (e.g. sand
or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to closed waste
containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original CGC-7 containers.

Do not allow spilled material to discharge to drain.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration.

Ventilate spillage area after the material is cleaned up.

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 to avoid exposure by ingestion,
inhalation, skin and eye contact.

Use local exhaust ventilation.

When exposure cannot be adequately controlled or prevented
personal protective equipment including eye protection e.g.
goggles, impervious gloves such as neoprene or nitrile
butadiene rubber, chemical resistant footwear and chemical
resistant clothing made of neoprene, nitrile butadiene
rubber or PVC (apron) should be worn. Furthermore, when
respiratory equipment is required it must be capable of
adequately controlling exposure, be suitable for the purpose
and conform to the appropriate national or international
standards. When there is a risk of exposure to vapours, a
half-face filter mask is advised in combination with
cartriges for organic vapours (classification: A2).

Storage: The substance should be stored in sealed containers under an
inert atmosphere such as nitrogen or argon. Exposure to
water or moist air must be avoided.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Glass bottles in sealed steel drums with appropriate shock
absorbent materials. Only UN approved packaging shall be

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Incompatible with water, alcohols, other protic solvents and
strong oxidising agents such as chlorine.

Chemical reaction with water: Hydrolysis will occur quickly.

Avoid exposure to water and moist air.

Dust explosion: Not anticipated.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: After use, the substance cannot be traced in the final
polymer as such, therefore cannot be recovered or recycled.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: 634 Neutralisation by special techniques

The reactive chemical properties of the substance can be
neutralised by reacting it with isopropanol. No treatment
specifically to neutralise the health or environmental
hazards is known, although chemical neutralisation with
isopropanol might reduce the corrosive effects

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The substance should not be disposed of by landfill.

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

The substance should be neutralised with isopropanol and
disposed of by incineration under controlled conditions at a
licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local
regulations. Stack gases should be scrubbed because noxious
fumes including carbon monoxide, aldehydes, silicon oxide,
titanium oxides and nitrogen oxides may be produced.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not be discharged directly to the
sewage system or the aqueous environment. However, the
substance has been shown not to be unduly toxic to sewage

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable; 100% use in chemical plants by industrial
