04. FIRST AID MEASURES

4.1

Description of 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.

 Ingestion

Call a physician or poison control centre 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.

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.

4.2

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

 

Dermatitis. Rash. Severe eye irritation. Symptoms may include stinging, tearing, redness, swelling, and blurred vision. Skin irritation. May cause redness and pain. May cause an allergic skin reaction.

4.3

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

 

No additional data available.

 

05. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES

5.1 

Extinguishing Media

 

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.

5.2 

Special hazards arising from the product

 

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

5.3 

Advice 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.

06. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

6.1 

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

 

Keep unnecessary personnel away. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless

wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Eliminate

all sources of ignition. Avoid contact with skin or inhalation of spillage, dust or vapour.

6.2 

Environmental Precautions

 

Avoid release to the environment. Contact local authorities in case of spillage to drain/aquatic

environment. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not contaminate water. Retain

and dispose of contaminated wash water.

6.3 

Methods and material 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. Allow gas to dissipate into the atmosphere. Block any potential routes to water systems. 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.

6.4 

Reference to other sections

 

See protective measures under point 7 and 8.

07. HANDLING AND STORAGE

7.1 

Precautions for safe handling

 

Do not handle or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. Take precautionary

measures against static discharges. All equipment used when handling the product must be

grounded. Avoid breathing vapour. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid prolonged

exposure. Wash thoroughly after handling.

7.2 

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

 

Keep container closed. Handle containers with care. Open slowly in order to control possible pressure release. Store in a cool, well-ventilated area.

 

7.3 

Specific end use(s) 

 

No additional data available.

08. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Control parameters 

 

No exposure limits noted for ingredient(s).

8.2 

Exposure controls 

Protective Equipment

 

 

Process Conditions 

Technical measures and the application of suitable work processes have priority over personal protection equipment.

Engineering Measures

Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment to stay below exposure limits.

Respiratory Equipment

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

Hand Protection

Use solvent and acid resistant protection gloves according to EN 374.

The quality of the protective gloves resistant to chemicals must be chosen as a function of the specific working place concentration and quantity of hazardous substances.

Take recovery periods for skin regeneration.

Eye Protection

Use protection goggles according to EN166.

Other Protection

Wear appropriate clothing to prevent any possibility of skin contact.

Hygiene Measures

Good personal hygiene practices are always advisable, especially when working with chemicals / oils.

Personal Protection 

Use personal protection according to Directive 89/686/EEC.

Skin Protection 

Protective work clothing solvent resistant (should be checked regularly).

Environmental Exposure Controls 

Avoid discharging into drainage water. Only remove via authorised companies.
