Response
If swallowed: Immediately call a poison center/doctor. Rinse mouth. If on skin (or hair): Take off
immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/shower. If inhaled: Remove person
to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing. Call a poison center/doctor. Wash contaminated
clothing before reuse. If exposed or concerned: Get medical attention. In case of fire: Do not use
water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

Disposal
Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local/regional/national regulations.
Hazard(s) not otherwise
classified (HNOC)

Indication of immediate
medical attention and special
treatment needed
General information
Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Oxygen or
artificial respiration if needed. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim inhaled the substance.
Induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other
proper respiratory medical device. Call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/shower. Get medical
advice/attention if you feel unwell. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if
present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.
Call a physician or poison control center immediately. Rinse mouth. Do not induce vomiting without
advice from poison control center. If vomiting occurs, keep head low so that stomach content
doesn't get into the lungs. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested the substance.
Induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other
proper respiratory medical device.
Dizziness. Headache. Nausea, vomiting. Irritation of eyes and mucous membranes. Upper
respiratory tract irritation. Skin irritation.
Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Thermal burns: Flush with water
immediately. While flushing, remove clothes which do not adhere to affected area. Call an
ambulance. Continue flushing during transport to hospital. Keep victim warm. Keep victim under
observation. Symptoms may be delayed.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. IF exposed or concerned: Get medical
advice/attention. 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. Wash
contaminated clothing before reuse.
5. Fire-fighting measures
Suitable extinguishing media
Unsuitable extinguishing
media
Specific hazards arising from
the chemical
Special protective equipment
and precautions for firefighters
Alcohol resistant foam. Water fog. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide,
sand or earth may be used for small fires only.
Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.
Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel considerable distance to a source
of ignition and flash back. This product is a poor conductor of electricity and can become
electrostatically charged. If sufficient charge is accumulated, ignition of flammable mixtures can
occur. This liquid may accumulate static electricity when filling properly grounded containers. Static
electricity accumulation may be significantly increased by the presence of small quantities of water
or other contaminants. Material will float and may ignite on surface of water. During fire, gases
hazardous to health may be formed.
Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.
Fire-fighting
equipment/instructions
In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Move containers from fire area if you can do
so without risk.
General fire hazards

6. Accidental release measures
Personal precautions,
protective equipment and
emergency procedures
Methods and materials for
containment and cleaning up
Keep unnecessary personnel away. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Keep out of
low areas. Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area).
Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Do not breathe mist or vapor.
Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective
clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Use appropriate containment to avoid
environmental contamination. Transfer by mechanical means such as vacuum truck to a salvage
tank or other suitable container for recovery or safe disposal. Local authorities should be advised if
significant spillages cannot be contained. For personal protection, see section 8 of the SDS.
Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). Take
precautionary measures against static discharge. Use only non-sparking tools. Keep combustibles
(wood, paper, oil, etc.) away from spilled material. This product is miscible in water.
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. Use a non-combustible material like
vermiculite, sand or earth to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal.
Following product recovery, flush area with water.
Small Spills: Absorb with earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers
for later disposal. Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.
Environmental precautions
Never return spills to original containers for re-use. For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS.
Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas.
Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Use appropriate containment to
avoid environmental contamination.
7. Handling and storage
Precautions for safe handling
Conditions for safe storage,
including any incompatibilities
Obtain special instructions before use. Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read
and understood. Do not handle, store or open near an open flame, sources of heat or sources of
ignition. Protect material from direct sunlight. Explosion-proof general and local exhaust ventilation.
Minimize fire risks from flammable and combustible materials (including combustible dust and
static accumulating liquids) or dangerous reactions with incompatible materials. Handling
operations that can promote accumulation of static charges include but are not limited to: mixing,
filtering, pumping at high flow rates, splash filling, creating mists or sprays, tank and container
filling, tank cleaning, sampling, gauging, switch loading, vacuum truck operations. Take
precautionary measures against static discharges. Use non-sparking tools and explosion-proof
equipment. Do not breathe mist or vapor. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Do not taste
or swallow. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Pregnant or breastfeeding women must not
handle this product. Should be handled in closed systems, if possible. Wear appropriate personal
protective equipment. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Observe good industrial hygiene
practices. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. For product usage instructions, please see
the product label.
Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Eliminate sources of ignition. Avoid spark
promoters. These alone may be insufficient to remove static electricity. Store in a cool, dry place
out of direct sunlight. Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in an
area equipped with sprinklers. Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the
SDS).

changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If
controls
applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to
maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been
established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

General hygiene
considerations
Wear protective gloves such as: Nitrile. Rubber.
Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing. Use of an impervious apron is recommended.
If engineering controls are not feasible or if exposure exceeds the applicable exposure limits, use a
NIOSH-approved cartridge respirator with an organic vapor cartridge. Use a self-contained
breathing apparatus in confined spaces and for emergencies. Air monitoring is needed to
determine actual employee exposure levels.
Wear appropriate thermal protective clothing, when necessary.
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. 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.
