First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Remove contaminated clothing. First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see
section 2) and/or in section 11.
Hazards: No hazard is expected under intended use and appropriate handling.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
carbon dioxide, dry powder, foam
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Evolution of fumes/fog.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Collect contaminated extinguishing
water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Fire debris must be disposed of in
accordance with offical regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Use personal protective
clothing.
Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance
with regulations.
Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found
in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy. If exposed to fire, keep containers cool by spraying with water.Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Protect contents from the effects of light. Keep container
tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with workplace control parameters
none
Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Hand protection:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact
(Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN
374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other
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:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure.
General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended. Keep
away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Store work
clothing separately.
