First-aid measures

- DESCRIPTION OF FIRST AID MEASURES:
- General advice: Call a physician immediately. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.
- If inhaled: Move to fresh air. If symptoms persist, call a physician.
- In case of skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water while removing all contaminated clothes and shoes. Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
- In case of eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.
- If swallowed: Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

- MOST IMPORTANT SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS, BOTH ACUTE AND DELAYED: Aspiration may cause pulmonary oedema and pneumonitis; Dizziness, Headache, Nausea, Vomiting
-INDICATION OF ANY IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION AND SPECIAL TREATMENT NEEDED: Treat symptomatically

Fire-fighting measures

- EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:
- Suitable Extinguishing Media: Use water spray to extinguish; Carbon dioxide (CO2), Alcohol-resistant foam, Dry chemical
- Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do NOT use water jet.
- SPECIFIC HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE: Specific hazards during fire-fighting: Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating gases and vapours.
- Hazardous combustion prod-ucts: Carbon oxides; Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
- ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS:
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit. Further information: Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
- PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS; PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES. Personal precautions: Use personal protective equipment. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.
- ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: Avoid release to the environment. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Prevent product from entering drains. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
- METHODS AND MATERIAL FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP: Methods for cleaning up: Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so. Contain spillage, soak up with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and transfer to a container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section 13). Large spills should be collected mechanically (remove by pumping) for disposal. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES:

Handling and storage

- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING:
Advice on safe handling: Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Use only with adequate ventilation.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
- CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATIBILITIES:
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect against light.

Exposure controls / personal protection

EXPOSURE CONTROLS:
- Engineering ,measures: Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
- Eye Protection: Safety glasses with side-shields; Face-shield
- Skin and body protection: Complete suit protecting against chemicals
- Hand protection Remarks: Rubber gloves Neoprene gloves The exact break through time can be obtained from the protective glove producer and this has to be observed.
- Respiratory Protection: Wear a positive-pressure supplied-air respirator.
- Filter type: Filter type K

Stability and reactivity

- Reactivity:None reasonably foreseeable.
- Chemical Stability: Stable under normal conditions.
- Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous reactions: Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.
- Conditions to Avoid: Heat, flames and sparks. Exposure to air or moisture over prolonged periods.
- Incompatible materials to avoid: Strong acids and oxidizing agents.
- Hazardous Decomposition Products: Carbon monoxide Carbon dioxide (CO2) Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Disposal considerations

WASTE DISPOSAL METHODS:
-Product: Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
- Contaminated packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste han-dling site for recycling or disposal.
