First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with large volumes of water. Seek

immediate medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water. If signs of discomfort occur, seek

medical attention.  Remove contaminated clothing and wash

thoroughly before re-use.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry foam, powder, water spray or carbon dioxide may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,

nitrogen and sulfur together with some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing, see 2.3.1. Sweep/scrape

up spill and dispose of as chemical waste in accordance with

local regulations.  Residues and minor spills may be washed

with water, avoiding run-off into water courses.

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions for handling organic

chemicals. Personal protective equipment such as rubber

gloves, eye/face protection and coveralls should be worn

when handling the substance. Ensure adequate ventilation. A

N10SH approved respirator should be worn when excess vapour

is likely.

Storage: Store in sealed containers under dry, ambient conditions.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Intended packaging of concentrated preparation for import is

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Avoid contact with strong oxidising and reducing agents. The

substance will be denatured on contact with anionic

substances and is unstable under alkaline conditions.

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion: The substance exists as a waxy solid which cannot be ground

into powder.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for reuse is not feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Quaternary ammonium compounds can be denatured with anionic

or alkaline materials. The products of such denaturing may

be more hazardous than the substance. (A632)

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incinerate at a suitable facility with waste gas scrubbers

to remove oxides of nitrogen and sulfur. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery is not feasible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable at the level in consumer products.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Used containers containing the substance may be disposed of

at a domestic landfill site.


Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Used containers containing the substance may be disposed of

by incineration.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance will enter the public domain as a component of

a preparation. Most of the waste will be discharged into

domestic waste water treatment plants.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: Dispose of as for domestic waste.
