3.Hazards Identification:
Poison Poisonous; Could be fatal if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through skin. Contact could cause burns to skin and eyes. Runoff from fire-control or dilution water could cause pollution.
4.First Aid Measures:
First Aid Skin Immediately remove contaminated clothing, including shoes. Wash affected area with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. SPEED IN REMOVING LIQUID FROM SKIN IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE
First Aid Eyes Flush eyes with water for 15 minutes. Hold eyelids open while washing.
First Aid Ingested Precautions: Avoid contact with the product. Avoid breathing in of product or mist. Do not eat, drink or smoke during application. Wash hands thoroughly after use. Symptoms of poisoning: Hyperexciteablity, tremors or convulsions, with muscle weakness. First Aid: Remove person from source of contamination and remove all contaminated clothing (taking care not to contaminate the first aider). Wash thoroughly with copious amounts of soap and water. Treatment: There is no specific treatment, thus treatment is symptomatic and supportive.
First Aid Inhalation IMMEDIATELY remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing of victim is difficult administer oxygen for a maximum period of one hour. Have victim lie down and keep warm.
5.Fire Fighting Measures:
SMALL FIRES: Dry chemical, CO2, Halon, water spray or standard foam. LARGE FIRES: Water spray, fog or standard foam is recommended. Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk. Dike fire control water for later disposal; do not scatter the material. Cool containers that are exposed to flames with water from the side until well after the fire is out. Stay away from ends of tanks. Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety device or any discolouration of tank due to fire. Keep unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind; keep out of low areas. Positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and chemical protective clothing that is specifically recommended by the shipper or manufacturer may be worn. It will provide little or no thermal protection. Structural firefighter's protective clothing is NOT effective with these materials. IF TANK, RAIL CAR OR TANK TRUCK IS INVOLVED IN FIRE, ISOLATE FOR 1 KILOMETRE IN ALL DIRECTIONS.
6.Accidental Release Measures:
PRECAUTIONS: Restrict access to area. Provide adequate protective equipment and ventilation. Remove sources of heat and flame. Notify occupational and environmental authorities. SPILL OR LEAK: Shut off ignition sources; no flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Do not touch spilled material. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Water spray may reduce vapor; but it may not prevent ignition in closed spaces. Remove spilled material by absorbing onto absorbant material (eg. swadust). Pack into sealable container. SMALL SPILLS: Takeup with sand or other noncombustible absorbent material and place into containers for later disposal. LARGE SPILLS: Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal.
7.Handling and Storage:
Separation of at least 3M from the following classes is recommended. Corrosives Fire separation of at least 5M or 4Hr fire resistant wall from the following classes is recommended. Flammable Gases Flammable Liquids Flammable Solids Spontaneously Combustibles Dangerous When Wet Oxidizing Agents Storage in the same room or space is prohibited with the following classes: The rooms or spaces should be at least 10M apart. Explosives Organic Peroxides Store away from food, feed children and uninformed persons
8.Exposure Controls/Personal Protection:
Occupation Exposure Limits
--------------------    --------------------
PPMa)      MG/M3b)      PPMa)      MG/M3b)
---------  ---------    ---------  ---------
-          5            -          10
Controls The control measures appropriate for a particular worksite depend on how this material is used and on the extent of exposure. The best protection is to enclose operations and/or provide local exhaust ventilation at the site of chemical release. Use a non-sparking, grounded ventilation system separate from other exhaust ventilation systems. Exhaust directly to the outside. Supply sufficient replacement air to make up for air removed. Have a safety shower/eye wash fountain readily available in the immediate work area
Personal Protection If engineering controls and work practices are not effective in controlling this material, then wear suitable personal protection equipment, including chemical safety goggles & face shield, boots, imperious gloves, coveralls, & respiratory protection. Have appropriate equipment available for use in emergencies.

13.Disposal Considerations:
Disposal Method Product There are no uniform EC regulations for the disposal of chemicals or residues. Chemical residues generally count as special waste. The disposal of the latter is regulated in the EC member countries through corresponding laws and regulations. We recommend that you contact the authorities in charge or approved waste disposal companies which will advise you on how to dispose of special waste. Pack small quantities into sealed containers, using appropriate personal protection, and dispose in accordance with local requirements.
Disposal Method Packaging Disposal in accordance with local legal provisions.
