Section 4 – First Aid Measures
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. Exposure symptoms can appear after several
hours. If contaminated consult medical advise up to 48 hours after exposure.
First Aid: Wear protective equipment (i.e. protective gloves).
If victim is unconscious: position and transport in “stable sideways position” to prevent
asphyxiation if vomiting. Keep air passages open, remove dentures and vomit. Control
breathing and pulse. If breathing and heart activity stops, administer CPR and call
immediately emergency services.
Remove subject to fresh air. Administer oxygen if difficulty with breathing. Consult a
physician immediately. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical
surveillance for 48 hours.
Immediately seek medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Drink plenty of water to dilute
stomach contents. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous.
After Skin Contact:
Instantly wash skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Remove
contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly
before reuse. Get medical attention immediately. Chemical burns must be treated
promptly by a physician.
After Eye Contact:
Rinse opened eye with plenty of running water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and
lower eyelids occasionally. Remove contact lenses. Chemical burns must be treated
promptly by a physician. Consult physician immediately.
Protection of First Aid Personnel: If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an
appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. It may be dangerous to the
person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Notes to Physician:
In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The

exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.
Section 5 – Fire Fighting Measures
Closed cup: 110 - 120o C (230 - 248 o F). [DIN 51758; EN 22719 (Pensky-
In a fire or heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may
Martens Closed Cup)].
Hazardous Thermal Decomposition Products: Decomposition products may include the following materials:
Carbon dioxide; carbon monoxide; nitrogen oxides.
Extinguishing Media: Suitable
Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures:
As in any fire, wear full protective gear and NIOSH-approved selfcontained breathing apparatus with full face-piece operated in the
pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Bursting and explosion of container possible due to increase of pressure
when exposed to increasing heat. In case of fire, cool nearby containers
with water fog.
Formation of poisonous gases during heating or in fires possible.
Section 6 – Accidental Release Measures
Provide plenty of fresh air. Avoid eye and skin contact. Avoid inhalation of vapors.
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Remove or eliminate all ignition
sources. Do not touch or walk through spilled material.
Methods for Cleaning up:
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach release from
upwind. Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent materials.
I.e. sand, earth, vermiculate, diatomaceous earth, universal binders, sawdust and
place in container for disposal.
Waste Disposal Method:
Dispose in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
Do not allow product to reach ground water, bodies of water, storm water or
sewage systems. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused
environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).
Section 7 – Handling and Storage
Avoid eye and skin contact. Keep out of reach of children. Empty containers
retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.
Storage temperature: 2 - 40 C (35 - 104 F). Store in original container protected
from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well ventilated area in tightly closed
containers. Store away from foodstuffs. Provide fresh air when handling in closed
rooms (open windows and doors). Do not store in unlabeled containers.
Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to
prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers.
Section 8 – Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Use only with adequate general and local exhaust ventilation.

Respirator in well ventilated areas not necessary. Wear a properly fitted NIOSH
approved respirator in poorly ventilated areas or spillage.
When installing, wear appropriate impervious gloves (neoprene) to prevent handskin exposure. Wear appropriate impervious clothing (acid and alkaline resistant)
to prevent skin exposure (long sleeve shirt and long pants).
Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approve standard
should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary.
