First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:

By inhalation:
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms appear.

By ingestion:
Wash out mouth with water. Ensure that the patient drinks water, possibly with the addition of activated charcoal. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention.

By skin contact:
Wash skin immediately with plenty of water and soap. Subsequent cleansing with polyethyleneglycol 400, then again with water and soap. In case of blueness of lips, skin or nails (cyanosis) let the person breathe oxygen.

Notes to medical doctor: Therapeutic measures:
Elementary aid, decontamination, symptomatic treatment and depending on the formation of methaemoglobin: intravenous administration of toluidine blue or other redox dyes according to dosage specifications plus ascorbic acid.

By eye contact:
Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
See section for more detailed information on health effects and symptoms.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
See section for more detailed information on health effects and symptoms.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: in case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam, dry chemical or CO2;
Unsuitable extinguishing media: none know.

Special hazards arising fro m the substance or mixture:
Hazards from the substance or mixture: in a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst;
Hazardous combustion products: decomposition products may include the following materials: carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides.

Advice for fire-fighters:
Special precautions for fire-fighters: promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training;
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self¬contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without protective equipment and suitable training. Keep unnessary and unprotected personnel from emergency procedures entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Avoid breathing vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions:
Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, precautions waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Small spill:
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Large spill:
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculiteor diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product. Note: see section for emergency contact information and section for waste disposal.

Reference to other sections:
See section for emergency contact information; see section for information on appropriate personal protective equipment.
See section for additional waste treatment information.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment. Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapour or mist. Do not ingest. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

CONTROL PARAMETERS:

Exposure limit values: Not available.
Recommended monitoring procedures: If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN 689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to chemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances.

EXPOSURE CONTROLS:
Risk management measures:
Occupational exposure controls:
Technical measures: If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure below any recommended or statutory limits.


PERSONAL PROTECTION MEASURES:
Respiratory protection:
Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe working limits of the selected respirator.
Recommended: Full mask with type ABEK filter

Hand protection:
Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. After contamination with product change the gloves immediately and dispose of them according to relevant national and local regulations Recommended: (< 1 hour) rubber gloves or PVC gloves.

Eye protection:
Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts.
