Administrative data

First-aid measures

General advice

Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.


If aerosol or mists are formed:

Possible discomfort: severe irritation of mucous lining (nose, throat, eyes), cough, sneezing, flow of tears

Move victims into fresh air.

If breathing difficulties occur:

Keep patient half sitting with upper body raised.

Consult a physician immediately.

Skin contact

Wash off immediately with plenty of water.

Consult a physician.

Eye contact

With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.

Continue rinsing process with eye rinsing solution.

Protect unharmed eye.

Call ambulance. (Cue: caustic burn of the eyes)

Immediate further treatment in ophthalmic hospital/ ophthalmologist.

Continue rinsing eye until arrival at ophthalmic hospital.


Do not induce vomiting.

Only when patient fully conscious:

Have the mouth rinsed with water.

Have patient drink plenty of water in small sips.

Notify ambulance immediately (keyword: chemical burn).

Notes to physician

Therapy as for chemical burn.

If substance has been swallowed:

Early endoscopy in order to assess mucosa lesions in the oesophagus and stomach which may appear.

If necessary, suck away leftover substance.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

foam, CO2, dry powder

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons


Specific hazards during fire fighting

Hazardous fumes in fires, specific to the product:

hydrogen chloride

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

Have ready/wear respiratory protection equipment.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Use personal protective equipment.

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Environmental precautions

Do not allow substance to enter soil, bodies of water or sewage canals.

Methods for cleaning up

Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).

Fill into marked, sealable containers.

To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.

Suitable binder:       sand (for damming up), sawdust, universal absorbent

Handling and storage

Safe handling advice

Provide good ventilation or extraction.

Ventilators required at emission site.

Protect from moisture.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Explosion protection equipment required.


Requirements for storage areas and containers

Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Protect from moisture.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters

•       Hydrogen chloride

CAS-No.       7647-01-0       EC-No.


Control parameters       5 ppm

8 mg/m3              Time Weighted Average (TWA):(EU ELV)


Control parameters       10 ppm

15 mg/m3              Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL):(EU ELV)


DNEL/DMEL and PNEC values

Engineering measures

If possible, use material transfer/filling, metering and blending plants that are closed.

If contact with gases or vapours cannot be excluded: Provide good ventilation or extraction.

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection

In case of leakage or if TLV is exceeded wear respiratory equipment with suitable filter or a self contained respiratory apparatus.

Hand protection

Glove material       for example, butyl-rubber

Material thickness       0,5 mm

Break through time       >= 480 min

Glove material       for example, Fluorinated rubber (Viton)

Material thickness       0,4 mm

Break through time       >= 480 min

Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.

Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.

The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.

Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).

Eye protection

close-fitting protective goggles (e.g. closed goggles)

Hygiene measures

Do not inhale vapours / aerosols.

Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Remove immediately all contaminated clothing.

Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.

Protective measures

Use protective clothing / face shield if necessary.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous decomposition products

hydrogen chloride in case of hydrolysis and thermal decomposition

Hazardous reactions

Reacts violently with:

atmospheric humidity






strong oxidants

Disposal considerations


With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.

No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.

The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
