First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Inhalation:       Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects are observed.

Eye contact:       Any material that contacts the eye should be washed out immediately with water. If easy to do, remove contact lenses.

Skin Contact:       Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. If skin irritation or rash occurs:  Get medical attention. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

Ingestion:       Treat symptomatically.  Get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards:       No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:       CO2, Dry chemical or Foam.  Water can be used to cool and protect exposed material.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:       Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:       A solid stream of water will spread the burning material. Material creates a special hazard because it floats on water. See section 10 for additional information.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:       Wear full protective firegear including self-containing breathing apparatus operated in the positive pressure mode with full facepiece, coat, pants, gloves and boots.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:       See Section 8 of the SDS for Personal Protective Equipment.

Environmental Precautions:       Avoid release to the environment. Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Environmental manager must be informed of all major spillages. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:       Pick up free solid for recycle and/or disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:       Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Spraying is permitted only in closed systems, spray cabinets or spray boxes with adequate ventilation.

Maximum Handling Temperature:       70 °C  

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:       Store away from incompatible materials.

Maximum Storage Temperature:       45 °C  

TRGS 510 Storage Class::       Non-combustible solids

Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls:       No special requirements under ordinary conditions of use and with adequate ventilation. The use of closed systems is strongly recommended for the handling and transfer of undiluted material.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

General information:       Please follow the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines below and refer to the appropriate EN standard where applicable. Use personal protective equipment as required.

Eye/face protection:       Safety glasses.  If potential for splash or mist exists, wear chemical goggles or faceshield. Eye protection should meet the standards set out in EN 166.

Skin protection       

Hand Protection:       Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier. Chemical resistant gloves  When needed, use gloves with insulation for thermal protection.

General:       Because specific work environments and material handling practices vary, safety procedures should be specific for each intended application. The correct choice of protective gloves depends upon the chemicals being handled, and the conditions of work and use. Most gloves provide protection for only a limited time before they must be discarded and replaced (even the best chemically resistant gloves will break down after repeated chemical exposures). Gloves should be chosen in consultation with the supplier / manufacturer and taking account of a full assessment of the working conditions. For typical use and handling of chemical substances, gloves should meet the standards set out in EN 374. For applications involving mechanical risks with potential for abrasion or puncture, the standards set out in EN 388 should be considered. For tasks involving thermal hazards, the standards set out in EN 407 should be considered.


Break-through time:       Breakthrough time data are generated by glove manufacturers under laboratory test conditions and represent how long a glove can be expected to provide effective permeation resistance. It is important when following breakthrough time recommendations that actual workplace conditions are taken into account. Always consult with your glove supplier for up-to-date technical information on breakthrough times for the recommended glove type.

For continuous contact, we suggest gloves with a minimum breakthrough time of 240 minutes, or > 480 minutes if suitable gloves can be obtained. If suitable gloves are not available to offer that level of protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may be acceptable as long as appropriate glove maintenance and replacement regimes are determined and adhered to.

For short-term, transient exposures and splash protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may commonly be used. Therefore, appropriate maintenance and replacement regimes must be determined and rigorously followed.


Glove thickness:       For general applications, we recommend gloves with a thickness typically greater than 0.35 mm.

It is important to note that glove thickness is not the only predictor of glove resistance to a specific chemical, as the permeation efficiency of the glove will be dependent on the exact composition of the glove material. Therefore, glove selection should also be based on consideration of the task requirements and knowledge of breakthrough times.

Glove thickness may also vary depending on the glove manufacturer, the glove type and the glove model. Therefore, the manufacturers’ technical data should always be taken into account to ensure selection of the most appropriate glove for the task.

Note: Depending on the activity being conducted, gloves of varying thickness may be required for specific tasks. For example: Thinner gloves (down to 0.1 mm or less) may be required where a high degree of manual dexterity is needed. However, these gloves are only likely to give short duration protection and would normally be just for single use applications, before being disposed of. Thicker gloves (up to 3 mm or more) may be required where there is a mechanical (as well as a chemical) risk i.e. where there is abrasion or puncture potential.


Respiratory Protection:       Consult with an industrial hygienist to determine the appropriate respiratory protection for your specific use of this material. A respiratory protection program compliant with all applicable regulations must be followed whenever workplace conditions require the use of a respirator.


      Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is not normally required where there is adequate natural or local exhaust ventilation to control exposure.

In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

The correct choice of respiratory protection depends upon the chemicals being handled, the conditions of work and use, and the condition of the respiratory equipment.

Safety procedures should be developed for each intended application.

Respiratory protection equipment should therefore be chosen in consultation with the supplier/manufacturer and with a full assessment of the working conditions.

Please refer to the relevant EN standards for the RPE selected.

Hygiene measures:       Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing to remove contaminants. Discard contaminated footwear that cannot be cleaned.

Chemical Stability:       Material is stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:       Will not occur.

Conditions to avoid:       Do not expose to excessive heat, ignition sources, or oxidizing materials.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Dispose of packaging or containers in accordance with local, regional, national and international regulations. Empty container contains product residue which may exhibit hazards of product.  

Contaminated Packaging:       Container packaging may exhibit hazards.
