First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures


First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become
unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately
remove contaminated clothing.


If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately administer a
corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler.


On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.


On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.


On ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting. Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical
attention.


Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: Information, i.e. additional information on symptoms and effects may be included in the
GHS labeling phrases available in Section 2 and in the Toxicological assessments available in
Section 11., Further symptoms are possible


Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide


Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Under certain
conditions in case of fire other hazardous combustion products may be generated.


Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.


Further information:
Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.
The product is immiscible with water.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Do not breathe vapour/aerosol/spray mists. Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate.
Keep people away and stay on the upwind side. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Take
off immediately all contaminated clothing.


Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater. Do not allow to enter soil, waterways or
waste water channels.


Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder,
kieselguhr).
Cleaning operations should be carried out only while wearing breathing apparatus. Clean
contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing environmental
regulations. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed. Incinerate or take
to a special waste disposal site in accordance with local authority regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Avoid aerosol formation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and acid forming substances.
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.
Specific end use(s)
For the relevant identified use(s) listed in Section 1 the advice mentioned in this section 7 is to be
observed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with occupational exposure limits
No occupational exposure limits known.


Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Combination filter for gases/vapours of
organic compounds and solid and liquid particles (f.e. EN 14387 Type A-P2)


Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness


nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
Suitable materials for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding >
30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
natural rubber/natural latex (NR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in
practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.


Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.


Body protection:
chemical-protection suit (f.e. according to EN 14605)


General safety and hygiene measures
Do not breathe vapour/spray. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Wearing of closed work
clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. Ensure cleanup is
performed only by trained personnel wearing appropriate personal protective clothing and
equipment. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Take off
immediately all contaminated clothing. Store work clothing separately.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Corrosion to metals: Corrosive effects to metal are not anticipated.
Formation of
flammable gases:
Remarks: Forms no flammable gases in the
presence of water.


Possibility of hazardous reactions
Evolution of heat under influence of acids.


Conditions to avoid
Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.


Incompatible materials
Substances to avoid:
acids, nitrosating agents


Hazardous decomposition products
Possible thermal decomposition products:
Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide
toxic gases/vapours, nitrogen oxides

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.


A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to
dependence on the usage.
The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in
cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.


Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for
recycling after being thoroughly cleaned.
Corroded or contaminated packaging should be disposed off as product waste.
