First-aid measures

- Inhalation:

If breathing is difficult, remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. For breathing difficulties, oxygen may be necessary. Call a physician if symptoms develop or persist.
- Skin contact:

Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water for several minutes.

- Eye contact:

Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists. Promptly wash eyes with plenty of water while
lifting the eye lids.

- Ingestion:

Call a physician or poison control center immediately. If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Do not induce vomiting. If
vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that stomach vomit doesn't enter the lungs.

- Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed:

Severe eye irritation. Symptoms may include stinging, tearing, redness, swelling, and blurred vision.Skin irritation. May cause redness and pain.

- Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:

Not Available

- General Information:

Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media:

Water spray, fog, CO2, dry chemical, or alcohol resistant foam.
- Unsuitable extinguishing media:

Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
- Specific hazards arising from the chemical:

Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

- Special protective equipment and precautions for firefighters:

Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with face shield, gloves, rubber boots, and in enclosed spaces,
SCBA. Structural firefighters protective clothing will only provide limited protection. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in
the positive pressure demand mode when fighting fires.

- Fire fighting equipment/instructions:

In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved materials. Move
containers from fire area if you can do so without risk. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Keep
run-off water out of sewers and water sources. Dike for water control.

- Specific Methods:

Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

- General Fire Hazards:

Static charges generated by emptying package in or near flammable vapor may cause flash fire.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Keep unnecessary personnel away. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Avoid contact with skin or inhalation of spillage, dust or vapor. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.

- Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area). Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Absorb with inert absorbent such as dry clay, sand or diatomaceous earth, commercial sorbents, or recover using pumps.

The product is immiscible with water and will spread on the water surface.

Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading.
Prevent product from entering drains. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers.

Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.

Never return spills in original containers for re-use. This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Collect and dispose of spillage as indicated in section 13 of the SDS.

- Environmental Precautions:

Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. Avoid release to the environment. Contact local authorities in case of spillage to drain/aquatic environment. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not contaminate water.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling:

Do not handle or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded. Avoid breathing vapor. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash thoroughly after
handling.

- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatatibilities:

Keep container closed. Handle containers with care. Open slowly in order to control possible pressure release. Store in a cool, well-ventilated area.

Exposure controls / personal protection

- Occupational exposure limits:

This substance has no PEL, TLV, or other recommended exposure limit.

- Biological limit values:

No biological exposure limits noted for the ingredient(s).

- Appropriate engineering controls:

Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment to stay below exposure limits. Adequate ventilation should be provided so that exposure limits are not exceeded.

- Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

Eye/face protection - Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). Face shield is recommended.

- Skin protection:

Hand protection - Chemical resistant gloves.
Other - Use of an impervious apron is recommended.

- Respiratory protection:

Respiratory protection not required.

- Thermal hazards:

Wear appropriate thermal protective clothing, when necessary.

- General hygiene considerations:

When using do not smoke. Keep away from food and drink. Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants.
