4.1. Description of first aid measures

General notes

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Place patient in recovery position and ensure airway patency. When in doubt or if feeling unwell seek medical assistance. Show the safety data sheet and label to the physician.

Following inhalation

Remove patient to fresh air - move out of dangerous area. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Obtain professional medical help!

Following skin contact

Take off all contaminated clothing. Wash affected skin areas thoroughly with plenty of water and soap. If symptoms develop and persist, seek medical attention.

Following eye contact

Immediately flush eyes with running water, keeping eyelids apart. If irritation persists, seek professional medical attention.

Following ingestion

Do not induce vomiting! If vomiting occurs, the patient should hold the head lower than the hips, because it reduces the possibility of aspiration. Rinse mouth and drink plenty of water (only if the person is conscious). Immediately consult a doctor. Show the physician the safety data sheet or label.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed


Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.
Excessive exposure to spray mist, fog, or vapours may cause respiratory irritation.
Coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge, labored breathing.

Skin contact

Repeated exposure may cause dry skin or cracked skin.
Contact with skin may cause irritation (redness, itching).

Eye contact

Redness, tearing, pain.


May cause abdominal discomfort.
May cause nausea/vomiting and diarrhea.
Irritates mucous membranes in the mouth, throat, esophagus and in gastrointestinal area.

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Have eye wash facilities in place close to the operators’ work area to provide immediate first aid prior to medical attention. Severe cases of eye contact and ingestion should receive medical attention immediately.

5. Firefighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

Carbon dioxide. Dry chemical powder. Water spray. Alcohol resistant foam. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Unsuitable extinguishing media

Full water jet.

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazardous combustion products

Highly flammable liquid and vapour. May form flammable/explosive vapour-air mixture. In case of a fire toxic gases can be generated; do not inhale gases/smoke.

5.3. Advice for firefighters

Protective actions

In case of fire or heating do not breathe fumes/vapours. Cool containers at risk with water spray. If possible remove containers from endangered area. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. In case of fire evacuate the area. Prolonged heating can cause an explosion. Fight fire from a reasonable distance.

Special protective equipment for firefighters

Firefighters should wear appropriate protective clothing for firefighters (including helmets, protective boots and gloves) (EN 469) and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece (EN 137).

Additional information

Contaminated firefighting water and fire residues must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations.


6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

6.1.1. For non-emergency personnel

Protective equipment

Use personal protective equipment (Section 8).

Emergency procedures

Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from sources of ignition and/or heat; No smoking! Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Prevent accumulation of vapours - vapours and air can form explosive mixtures. Vapours can accumulate in low-lying areas. Evacuate the danger zone. Evacuate personnel. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Prevent access to unprotected personnel. Do not breathe vapour or mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

6.1.2. For emergency responders

During intervention, use personal protective equipment (Section 8).

6.2. Environmental precautions

Do not allow product to reach water/drains/sewage systems or permeable soil. If accidental large entry into water or ground occurs, inform responsible authorities.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

6.3.1. For containment

Stem the spill if this does not pose risks.

6.3.2. For cleaning up

Prevent release into the sewer, water, basements or confined areas. Absorb product (with inert material), collect it in special container and dispose it to a licensed hazardous-waste disposal contractor. Make sure the leakage site is well aired. Use spark-proof tools. Dispose in accordance with applicable regulations (see Section 13).

6.3.3. Other information

See Section 7: safe handling. See Section 11 for additional information on health hazards. See Section 12: ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION.

6.4. Reference to other sections

See also Sections 8 and 13.

7. Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling

7.1.1. Protective measures

Measures to prevent fire

Ensure adequate ventilation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Ensure proper grounding of the equipment. Keep away from sources of ignition - no smoking. Use spark-proof tools. Vapours are heavier than air and spread along the floor. They form explosive mixtures with air. In order to avoid the risk of fires and explosions, never use compressed air when handling. Empty containers may contain flammable or explosive vapours.

Measures to prevent aerosol and dust generation

Use general or local exhaust ventilation to prevent inhaling vapours and aerosols.

Measures to protect the environment

Do not discharge into drains, surface water and soil. After use immediately close container tightly.

7.1.2. Advice on general occupational hygiene

Use good personal hygiene practices – wash hands at breaks and when done working with material. Do not eat, drink or smoke while working. Do not breathe vapours/mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes. Remove contaminated clothes and wash them before reuse. Wear suitable protective equipment; see Section 8. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory protection equipment. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before using. Refer to instructions on label and regulations for safety and health at work. Regular cleaning of equipment, work area and clothing is recommended.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

7.2.1. Technical measures and storage conditions

Store in accordance with local regulations. Keep in a cool, dry and well ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. Keep away from incompatible products (see section 10).

7.2.2. Packaging materials


7.2.3. Requirements for storage rooms and vessels

Close opened containers after use. Put the containers upright to prevent from leaking. Do not store in unlabelled containers. The empty containers contain the residues of the preparation and therefore can also pose a risk.
