First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air at once. Initiate artificial

respiration and supply oxygen if needed. Keep victim warm

and at rest. Seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush the eyes with copious amounts of clean, cold water

(remove contact lenses if easily possible).    Hold the

victims eyelids open and pour water slowly over the

eyeball(s) at the inner corner, letting water run out of

the outer corner to rinse the substance out of the eye. Seek

medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: In case of contact, immediately flush skin copiously with

water for at least 15 minutes to remove pitch while removing

contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before

reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Obtain medical

attention if necessary.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical

personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious

person. Loosen tight clothing. Keep victim warm and quiet.

Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Foam or fine water spray are recommended.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a

fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg oxides of carbon).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity. Eliminate all

sources of ignition.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to

the relevant national or international standards as

mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike

if necessary. Carefully transfer the spillage to waste

containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.

Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in

the same way as the original containers.

Dispose of waste material by incineration or landfill in

accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

substance.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166

Chemical protective boots.

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be

used. e.g. dust mask or self-contained breathing apparatus.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a

minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, away from

sources of ignition.

Keep containers hermetically closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 1000 kg bags.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be kept to a minimum.

Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not

economically or technically feasible, and such waste

material will be disposed of in accordance with local

regulations. In principle, it may be possible to recover

larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent

use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with

inert material (eg sand or soil) may be disposed of by

landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local

regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning

under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg oxides of

carbon) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to

the sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable since the substance will not be made

available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable since the substance will not be made

available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable since the substance will not be made

available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable since the substance will not be made

available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.
