First-aid measures

4.1 Description of first aid measures

General advice: First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended protective clothing (chemical resistant gloves, splash protection).

Inhalation: Move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician.

Skin Contact: Wash skin with plenty of water.

Eye Contact: Flush eyes thoroughly with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses after the initial 1-2 minutes and continue flushing for several additional minutes. If effects occur, consult a physician, preferably an ophthalmologist.

Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Give one cup (8 ounces or 240 ml) of water or milk if available and transport to a medical facility. Do not give anything by mouth unless the person is fully conscious.

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Aside from the information found under Description of first aid measures (above) and Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed (below), no additional symptoms and effects are anticipated.

4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Due to irritant properties, swallowing may result in burns/ulceration of mouth, stomach and lower gastrointestinal tract with subsequent stricture. Aspiration of vomitus may cause lung injury. Suggest endotracheal/esophageal control if lavage is done. No specific antidote. Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing Media

Water fog or fine spray.  Dry chemical fire extinguishers.  Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers.  Foam.  Alcohol resistant foams (ATC type) are preferred. General purpose synthetic foams (including AFFF) or protein foams may function, but will be less effective.  

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazardous Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating.  Combustion products may include and are not limited to:  Carbon monoxide.  Carbon dioxide.  

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Violent steam generation or eruption may occur upon application of direct water stream to hot liquids.  

5.3 Advice for firefighters

Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep people away.  Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry.  Do not use direct water stream.  May spread fire.  Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect personnel and minimize property damage.  Avoid accumulation of water.  Product may be carried across water surface spreading fire or contacting an ignition source.  Contain fire water run-off if possible. Fire water run-off, if not contained, may cause environmental damage.    

Special Protective Equipment for Firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves).  If protective equipment is not available or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.  

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Use appropriate safety equipment. Isolate area. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering the area.  No smoking in area.  

6.2 Environmental precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater.  Material will float on water.

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Contain spilled material if possible.  Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling


General Handling: Keep away from heat, sparks and flame.  Avoid contact with eyes.  Do not swallow.  Wash thoroughly after handling.  Containers, even those that have been emptied, can contain vapors. Do not cut, drill, grind, weld, or perform similar operations on or near empty containers.  

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Storage: No specific requirements.  

7.3 Specific end uses

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.2 Exposure controls

Personal Protection

Eye/Face Protection: Use chemical goggles.  Chemical goggles should be consistent with EN 166 or equivalent.  If exposure causes eye discomfort, use a full-face respirator.  

Skin Protection: Wear clean, body-covering clothing.  

Hand protection: Use gloves chemically resistant to this material when prolonged or frequently repeated contact could occur.  Use chemical resistant gloves classified under Standard EN374: Protective gloves against chemicals and micro-organisms.  Examples of preferred glove barrier materials include:  Butyl rubber.  Chlorinated polyethylene.  Natural rubber (“latex”).  Neoprene.  Nitrile/butadiene rubber (“nitrile” or “NBR”).  Polyethylene.  Ethyl vinyl alcohol laminate (“EVAL”).  Polyvinyl chloride (“PVC” or “vinyl”).  Viton.  Examples of acceptable glove barrier materials include:  Polyvinyl alcohol (“PVA”).  When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a glove with a protection class of 4 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 120 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended.  When only brief contact is expected, a glove with a protection class of 1 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 10 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended.  NOTICE: The selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace should also take into account all relevant workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which may be handled, physical requirements (cut/puncture protection, dexterity, thermal protection), potential body reactions to glove materials, as well as the instructions/specifications provided by the glove supplier.  

Respiratory Protection: Respiratory protection should be worn when there is a potential to exceed the exposure limit requirements or guidelines.  If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, wear respiratory protection when adverse effects, such as respiratory irritation or discomfort have been experienced, or where indicated by your risk assessment process.  Use the following CE approved air-purifying respirator:  Organic vapor cartridge, type A (boiling point >65 ºC)  

Ingestion: Avoid ingestion of even very small amounts; do not consume or store food or tobacco in the work area; wash hands and face before smoking or eating.  

Engineering Controls

Ventilation: Use engineering controls to maintain airborne level below exposure limit requirements or guidelines.  If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, use only with adequate ventilation.  Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary for some operations.  

Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity

No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

10.2 Chemical stability

Thermally stable at typical use temperatures.  

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

Polymerization will not occur.  

10.4 Conditions to Avoid: Exposure to elevated temperatures can cause product to decompose.  

10.5 Incompatible Materials: Avoid contact with:  Strong acids.  Strong oxidizers.  

10.6 Hazardous decomposition products

Decomposition products depend upon temperature, air supply and the presence of other materials.  

Disposal considerations

13.1 Waste treatment methods

This product, when being disposed of in its unused and uncontaminated state should be treated as a hazardous waste according to EC Directive 91/689/EEC.  Any disposal practices must be in compliance with all national and provincial laws and any municipal or local by-laws governing hazardous waste.  For used, contaminated and residual materials additional evaluations may be required.  Do not dump into any sewers, on the ground, or into any body of water.
