4. FIRST-AID MEASURES

Inhalation

If breathing is difficult, remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. For breathing difficulties, oxygen may be necessary. Call a physician if symptoms develop or persist.

Skin contact

Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water for several minutes.

Eye contact

Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists. Promptly wash eyes with plenty of water while lifting the eye lids.

Ingestion

Call a physician or poison control center immediately. If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that stomach vomit doesn't enter the lungs.

Most important

symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

Aspiration may cause pulmonary edema and pneumonitis. Mild skin irritation. May cause an allergic skin reaction. Dermatitis. Rash.

Indication of immediate medical

attention and special treatment

needed

Not available.

General information

Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable extinguishing media           Water spray, fog, CO2, dry chemical, or alcohol resistant foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing media

Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Specific hazards arising from the chemical

Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Special protective equipment and precautions for firefighters

Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with face shield, gloves, rubber boots, and in enclosed spaces, SCBA. Structural firefighters protective clothing will only provide limited protection. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in the positive pressure demand mode when fighting fires.

Fire fighting equipment/instructions

In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved materials. Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Keep run-off water out of sewers and water sources. Dike for water control.

Specific methods

Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

General fire hazards

Static charges generated by emptying package in or near flammable vapor may cause flash fire.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions, protective      Keep unnecessary personnel away. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Avoid contact with skin or equipment and emergency               inhalation of spillage, dust or vapor. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless procedures              wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area). Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Absorb with inert absorbent such as dry clay, sand or diatomaceous earth, commercial sorbents, or recover using pumps.

 The product is immiscible with water and will spread on the water surface.

Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Prevent product from entering drains. Do not allow material to contaminate ground water system. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers.

Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.

Never return spills in original containers for re-use. This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Collect and dispose of spillage as indicated in section 13 of the

SDS.

Environmental precautions

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not contaminate water. Avoid release to the environment. Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. Contact local authorities in case of spillage to drain/aquatic environment.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for safe handling           Do not handle or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. All equipment used

when handling the product must be grounded. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash thoroughly after handling. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Avoid breathing vapor.

Conditions for safe storage,               Keep container closed. Handle containers with care. Open slowly in order to control possible including any incompatibilities         pressure release. Store in a cool, well-ventilated area.

Respiratory protection

Respiratory protection not required. If ventilation is insufficient, suitable respiratory protection must be provided.

Thermal hazards

Wear appropriate thermal protective clothing, when necessary.

General hygiene considerations

Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking.  Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace.
