First-aid measures

General instructions
IF THE SUBSTANCE IS INHALED OR COMES INTO CONTACT WITH THE EYES, YOU MUST SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT IMMEDIATELY.
If health problems occur or if you suspect that your health may have been affected, contact your physician and provide the information stated on this safety data sheet. It is necessary to keep the vital functions going until a physician arrives (i.e. check the heartbeat, ensure artificial respiration, heart massage). If the affected person has lost consciousness or if you believe that he/she may lose consciousness, transport the person to a healthcare provider in a stabilised position, lying on his/her side.
When inhaled
Provide a supply of fresh air, prevent the victim from becoming cold, seek medical advice immediately.
In case of contact with skin
Remove contaminated clothing, wash the affected spot with soap and water, if a large skin surface has been affected, seek medical advice.
In case of contact with eyes
Constantly flush the open eye with a stream of pure water for a period of 10 - 15 minutes
If the affected person is wearing contact lenses, they must be removed immediately. Call for professional medical help promptly.
When swallowed
First rinse the mouth, then make the affected person drink at least 0.5 l of water. Do not induce vomiting. Risk of aspiration. Seek medical treatment promptly.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Inhalation: headache, nausea, airways irritation, CNS disorders
Contact with skin: Degreasing, skin dryness, irritation
Contact with eyes: Irritation, pain, lacrimation, potential sclerocomea damage
Ingestion: Nausea, vomiting

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Powder or snow fire extinguisher. In the case of a large-scale fire, use heavy foam with a polar foam maker. Cool surrounding containers and equipment with a water curtain.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
Direct water stream
Special hazards arising from the substance mixture
The substance burns, forming toxic combustion products. Danger of the formation of explosive mixtures of the substance vapours with air.
Advice for fire-fighters
Insulation breathing apparatus and complete anti-thermal radiation clothing are a necessity.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Close off the place of the accident. Send away all persons not involved in rescue works. When managing the emergency, use an isolation breathing apparatus and full anti-chemical suit. If this is not possible, use the personal protective equipment described in Section 8 of SDS Remove or switch off all ignition sources. Leaking tankers should be driven to safe locations, while it is necessary to prevent the liquid from leaking by closing off or sealing the place of the leakage. It is also necessary to measure the concentration of the substance in the area continuously.
Environmental precautions
Prevent the substance from leaking into the sewerage system, ground and surface water, or into the soil. If the capacity of the leakage source is large, raise an emergency alarm immediately.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
The leaked liquid should be contained and pumped into a container suitable for further processing or disposal. The remainder should be absorbed into a suitable porous material (sand, vapex, infusorial earth). Disposal of the substance is governed by the valid waste handling legislation.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Adhere to the regional regulation for handling flammable liquids; provide good vapour ventilation and, for the work place, exhaust, prevent the escape of substance vapours into the atmosphere, use PEE in compliance with Section 8 of SDS, handle in a manner to prevent spillage or escape, prevent contact of the substance with open flame, sparks or hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Adhere to the regional regulation for storing flammable liquids; continue ventilating the storage room efficiently, use PPE in compliance with Section 8 of SDS. Store in closed packaging only, do not store together with strong oxidising agents, keep reservoirs, tanks and receptacles dry and tightly closed. Protect against strong sunlight, prevent formation of dry solids resulting from the tetralin standing for a prolonged time in contact with air and from subsequent evaporating thereof. To prevent peroxides formation, store with a small quantity of hydroquinone.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures

Plant-wide and local ventilation, effective exhaust system, automation, hermetic sealing.

2. Organisational protection measures
The staff must wear personal protection equipment (PPE) to protect their eyes, hands and skin. This equipment must be suitable for the nature of the activities they perform. Wherever the technical means do not enable obeying the exposure limits determined for the working environment or ensuring that inhaling the substance does not affect a persons’ health, the staff must use also suitable protection of the respiratory system. If the staff are to use this equipment permanently while working, it is necessary to include safety breaks, if required by the nature of the PPE. All the PPE must be kept in good condition. Any polluted or damaged equipment must be replaced immediately.

Follow the rules of personal hygiene. Do not eat, drink or smoke while working! Wash your hands as well as any uncovered parts of your body well with water and soap, or treat them with suitable reparation lotion after finishing work or before eating or drinking.

3. Hand protection
Chemical protective gloves
Everyday working activities with possible contact during operation or getting stained in the case of leakage: Material e.g. fluoroelastomer. Layer thickness, penetration time according to producer .

4. Feet protection
Chemical protective footwear

5. Body protection
Protective coveralls

6. Eye protection
Protective shield or goggles

7. Respiratory protection
In the case of short-term exposure or of low concentration values, use a mask with a filter against organic fumes; in the case of high concentration values and of long-term exposure, an insulation respiration apparatus is a necessity.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
Reaction with oxidative agent, oxygen to peroxides in the air
Chemical stability
Conventional physical and chemical conditions, no oxygen containing medium, suitable keep in the presence of substances with reducing capabilities (e.g. hydroquinone)
Possibility of hazardous reactions
