SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Description of first aid measures
General information:
Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product.
Symptoms of poisoning may even occur after several hours; therefore medical observation for at least 48 hours
after the accident.
Remove breathing apparatus only after contaminated clothing have been completely removed.
In case of irregular breathing or respiratory arrest provide artificial respiration.
If inhaled:
Supply fresh air or oxygen; call for doctor.
In case of unconsciousness place patient stably in side position for transportation.
In case of skin contact: Immediately wash with soap and water; rinse thoroughly.
In case of eye contact: Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water. Consult a physician.
If swallowed: Drink copious amounts of water and provide fresh air. Immediately call a doctor.
Information for doctor:
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
No data available
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
No data available


SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing agents:
CO2, extinguishing powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
During heating or in case of fire poisonous gases are produced.
Advice for firefighters
Protective equipment: Mouth respiratory protective device.


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Mount respiratory protective device.
Use personal protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.
Environmental precautions: No special measures required.
Methods and materials for containment and cleanup:
Absorb with liquid-binding material (sand, diatomite, acid binders, universal binders, sawdust).
Use neutralizing agent.
Dispose contaminated material as waste according to item 13.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Reference to other sections
See Section 7 for information on safe handling.
See Section 8 for information on personal protection equipment.
See Section 13 for disposal information.


SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

TLV Long-term value: 0.63 mg/m3, 0.1 ppm
Additional information: The lists that were valid during the creation were used as basis.
Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment:
General protective and hygienic measures:
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Store protective clothing separately.
Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
Breathing equipment:
In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use
respiratory protective device that is independent of circulating air.
Protection of hands:
Protective gloves
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/ the
chemical mixture.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation
Material of gloves
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and
varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Penetration time of glove material
The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be
observed.
Eye protection:
Tightly sealed goggles
