First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Wash with plenty of soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. If skin irritation occurs, get medical attention. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

Flush with water at least 30 minutes. Get medical attention if eye irritation develops or persists.

Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects are observed. If irritation persists or if toxic symptoms are observed, get medical attention.

Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention.

Advice for first-aid providers
When providing first aid always protect yourself against exposure to chemicals or blood born diseases by wearing gloves, masks and eye protection. After providing first aid wash your exposed skin with soap and water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
See section “Toxicological Information”.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
If exposed or concerned: Get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media
CO2, dry chemical, or foam. Water can be used to cool and protect exposed material.

Special hazards arising from substance or mixture
Material will not burn. Container may rupture on heating. See section "Stability and Reactivity" for additional information.

Advice for firefighters
Recommend wearing self-contained breathing apparatus. Water may cause splattering.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal protective equipment must be worn. Ventilate area if spilled in a confined space or other poorly ventilated area.

Environmental precautions
Take precautions to avoid release to the environment. Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material.

Reference to other sections
See sections "Exposure Controls/Personal Protection" and "Disposal Considerations" for additional information.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Use with adequate ventilation. Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not discharge into drains or the environment, dispose to an authorized waste collection point. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. Wash thoroughly after handling. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Empty container contains product residue which may exhibit hazards of product. Dispose of packaging or containers in accordance with local, regional, national and international regulations.

Other Exposure Limits
None known.

Exposure controls
Material should be handled in enclosed vessels and equipment, in which case general (mechanical) room ventilation should be sufficient. Local exhaust ventilation should be used at points where dust, mist, vapors or gases can escape into the room air.

Eye/face protection
Safety glasses. If potential for splash or mist exists, wear chemical goggles or faceshield.

Skin protection
Gloves should always be inspected before each use and discarded if they show tears, pinholes, or signs of wear.
Gloves, coveralls, apron, boots as necessary to minimize contact Use nitrile rubber boots when necessary to avoid contaminating shoes. Do not wear rings, watches or similar apparel that could entrap the material and cause a skin reaction.

Respiratory Protection
Use full face respirator with a combination organic vapor and high efficiency filter cartridge if the recommended exposure limit is exceeded. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space, for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.

Hygiene Measures
Wash thoroughly after handling this product.

Environmental exposure controls
See section “Accidental Release Measures” for details.
