First-aid measures

General information:
Take persons to a safe place. Observe self-protection for first aid. Always seek medical advice in the event of contact with this

After inhalation
Keep the patient calm. If unconscious place in stable sideways position. Protect against loss of body heat. If breathing stops,
administer artificial respiration. Seek medical advice immediately and clearly identify substance.

After contact with the skin
Remove contaminated clothes at once. Wash off with plenty of water or water and soap immediately for 10-15 minutes. In serious
cases, use emergency shower immediately. Seek medical advice immediately and clearly identify substance.

After contact with the eyes
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for 10-15 minutes. Keep eyelids well open to rinse the whole eye surface and eyelids with
water. Seek medical advice immediately and clearly identify substance. Continue to bathe eyes during transport to medical

After swallowing
If conscious, give several small portions of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical advice immediately and clearly
identify substance.

Advice for the physician
After inhalation: treat as early as possible using cortisone spray. Medical checks necessary up to a latency period of at least 24
hours. In the event of 1st degree burns use corticoid-externa. In the case of 2nd degree burns, use symptomatic treatment. Risk
of intra-abdominal gas developing if swallowed. Risk of perforation of the stomach.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
alcohol-resistant foam , carbon dioxide , dry sand . Application of foam will release at least initially significant amounts of
flammable and corrosive vapors. These vapors could be trapped under the foam blanket.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
water , extinguishing powder , halones .

Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products, resulting gases
Hazardous combustion products: hydrogen chloride .

Special protective equipment for fire fighting
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air. Use tightly fitting chemical protection suit (see section 8).

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Wear personal protection equipment (see section 8). Task force: Use tightly fitting chemical protection suit (see section 8). Keep
unprotected persons away. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid inhaling mists and vapours. Do not walk through spilled
material. Ensure adequate ventilation. If material is released indicate risk of slipping.

Environmental precautions
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil. Contain any fluid that runs out using suitable material
(e.g. earth). Condense gasses/vapours/mists using a directed spray of water. Retain contaminated water/extinguishing water.
Dispose of in prescribed marked containers. For large amounts: Close leak if possible without risk.

Methods for cleaning up
Do not flush away with water. For small amounts: Absorb with liquid, mainly acid binding material and dispose of according to
local/state/federal regulation. Cover larger quantities by near waterless foam and take up in container. Exhaust vapours. Clean up
with plenty of water.

Further information:
Eliminate all sources of ignition.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Must be syphoned off in situ. Keep away from incompatible substances in accordance with section

Spilled substance increases risk of slipping.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Flammable vapors may accumulate and form explosive mixtures with air in containers, process vessels, including partial, empty
and uncleaned containers and vessels, or other enclosed spaces. Vapours heavier than air, therefore inflammable gas mixture
may form mainly near floor. Keep away from sources of ignition and do not smoke. Take precautionary measures against
electrostatic charging. Cool endangered containers with water.

Conditions for storage rooms and vessels:
Store under protective gas.
Advice for storage of incompatible materials:
not applicable
Further information for storage:
Protect against moisture. Store in original container only. Keep container tightly closed and store in a cool, well ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure limits
Exposure limited and controlled
Exposure in the work place limited and controlled
General protection and hygiene measures:
Do not breathe vapours. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling. Wash hands at the end of
work and before eating.
Personal protection equipment
Respiratory protection
gas mask filter ABEK . In case of long or strong exposure: positive pressure self contained breathing apparatus .
Hand protection
protective gloves made of fluorinated rubber . At any sign of decay or chemical permeability remove gloves immediately and
replace. Wear gloves for short periods only < 10 mins.
Eye protection
tight fitting protective goggles . Where there is risk of splashing: protective shield . Provide work station with eye bathing
equipment. Do not wear contact lenses.
Skin protection
apron , protective clothing, face protection, neck protection , acid-proof protective clothing .

Exposure to the environment limited and controlled
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil.

Further information for system design and engineering measures
Observe regulations for protection against explosion.

Stability and reactivity

General information:
Violent reactions are possible with various chemicals.

Conditions to avoid

Materials to avoid
proton-active substances Reacts violently with water.

Hazardous decomposition products
Under the effect of humidity, water and protic agents: hydrogen chloride

Disposal considerations

Dispose of according to regulations by incineration in a special waste incinerator. Observe local/state/federal regulations. Ensure
special chem./phys. treatment after discussion with the supplier.

Uncleaned packaging
Completely discharge containers (no tear drops, no powder rest, scraped carefully). Containers may be recycled or re-used.
Observe local/state/federal regulations. Uncleaned packaging should be treated with the same precautions as the material.
