First-aid measures

General advice
Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Remove contaminated, soaked clothing immediately and dispose of safely. First aider needs to protect himself.
Inhalation
Aerate with fresh air. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.
Skin
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.
Eyes
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
Ingestion
Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Obtain medical attention.
Main symptoms
Exposure may result in reddening, tears and itching of the eyes and soreness in the nose and throat, together with coughing, Repeated and prolonged exposure to solvents may cause brain and nervous system damage.
Notes to physician
Treat symptomatically

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
foam. dry chemical. carbon dioxide (CO2).
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or released gases
Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors
Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of
carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Fire fighter protection should include a self-contained breathing apparatus (NIOSH-approved or EN 133) and full fire-fighting turn out gear.
Precautions for fire-fighting
Keep people away from and upwind of fire. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Dike and collect water used to fight fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Avoid breathing vapors or mists. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
For emergency responders: Personal protection see section 8. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods for containment
Stop the flow of material, if possible without risk.
Methods for cleaning up
DO NOT use combustible materials such as sawdust. Soak up with inert absorbent material. Allow to solidify, use mechanical handling equipment. Sweep up or vacuum up spillage and collect in suitable container for disposal. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours).

Handling and storage

Handling
Advice on safe handling
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours). Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Vapour is heavier than air and can travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flashback. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be available.
Environmental precautions
see section 8 - environmental exposure controls
Storage
Technical measures/Storage conditions
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Advice on common storage

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Handle product only in closed system or provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Vapors may cause flash fire or explosion.
Personal protective equipment
General industrial hygiene practice
Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
Hand protection
Wear protective gloves. Recommendations are listed below. Other protective material may be used, depending on the situation, if adequate degradation and permeation data is available. If other chemicals are used in conjunction with this chemical, material selection should be based on protection for all chemicals present.
Suitable material: Viton
Eye protection
Safety glasses with side-shields. In addition to goggles, wear a face shield if there is a reasonable chance for splash to the face.
Skin and body protection
Impervious clothing.
Environmental exposure controls
Use product only in closed system. If leakage can not be prevented, the substance needs to be suck off at the emersion point, if possible without danger. Inform the responsible authorities in case of leakage into the atmosphere, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains.

Stability and reactivity

Stability
Stable under normal conditions of handling, use and transportation.
Hazardous reactions
Hazardous polymerisation may occur. Polymerization is a highly exothermic reaction and may generate sufficient heat to cause thermal decomposition and/or rupture containers.
Conditions to avoid
Avoid any source of ignition. Avoid contact with heat, sparks, open flame, and static discharge.
Materials to avoid
oxidizing agents, radical initiators, strong acids, strong bases.
Hazardous decomposition products
No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Disposal considerations

Product Information
Disposal required in compliance with all waste management related state and local regulations. The choice of the appropriate method of disposal depends on the product composition by the time of disposal as well as the local statutes and possibilities for disposal.
Uncleaned empty packaging
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be taken for reuse.
