First-aid measures

General advice:
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. 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:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.

On contact with eyes:
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.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
dry extinguishing media, carbon dioxide, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
water

Specific hazards:
hydrogen chloride
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

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:
Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Environmental precautions:
Do not empty into drains.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. acid binder). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.
For large amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. acid binder). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Protect against moisture.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

Storage
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Storage stability:
Storage duration: 6 Months

Exposure controls / personal protection


Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Self-contained breathing apparatus.

Hand protection:
Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on own 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 in accordance with EN 374.

Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (EN 166)

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to DIN-EN 465).

General safety and hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapour/spray.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous reactions:
Addition of water leads to increase in temperature. Reacts with basic components to generate heat. Reacts with amines.


Hazardous decomposition products:
hydrogen chloride

Disposal considerations

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.


Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling after being thoroughly cleaned.
