First-aid measures

Remove contaminated clothing. In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical

attention.

If inhaled:

Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air.

On skin contact:

Wash thoroughly with soap and water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.

On contact with eyes:

In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately for at least 15 minutes with plenty of water. If

irritation develops, seek medical attention.

On ingestion:

Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: No significant reaction of the human body to the product known.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

carbon dioxide, foam, dry powder

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:

water

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.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Environmental precautions

Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.

For large amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.

Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.

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 bases. Segregate from oxidants.

Further information on storage conditions: Keep only in the original container. Keep container tightly

closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep container dry. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks,

open flame.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters

No occupational exposure limits known.

Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Breathing protection if dusts are formed. Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release.

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):

e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other

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:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work

clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity

Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Chemical stability

The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Possibility of hazardous reactions

Hazardous reactions in presence of mentioned substances to avoid.

Conditions to avoid

Avoid heat. Avoid direct sunlight. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid

electro-static charge. Avoid humidity.

Incompatible materials

Substances to avoid:

acids, Alkalines, substances with an acid reaction, oxidizing agents, reducing agents

Hazardous decomposition products

Hazardous decomposition products:

carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide

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.
