Section 3- CHEMICAL COMPOSITION / HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS
Section 4- FIRST AID MEASURES
IF INHALED: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing. Call a doctor if you feel unwell.
If SWALLOWED: Immediately call a doctor. Do not induce vomiting. NEVER give anything by mouth if victim is rapidly losing consciousness, or is unconscious or convulsing. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Have victim drink two glasses of water. If vomiting occurs naturally, have victim lean forward to reduce risk of aspiration.
IF ON SKIN: Wash with plenty of water (15-20 minutes). If skin irritation occurs: Get medical attention. Take off contaminated clothing and wash it before reuse.
IF IN EYES, Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes (5-10). Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists: Get medical attention.
Most important symptoms and effects (acute or delayed)
Indication of immediate medical attention/special treatment
In all cases, call a doctor. Do not forget this document.
Section 5- FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Specific hazards of the hazardous product (hazardous combustion products)
Carbon oxides and other irritant/toxic gases and fumes.
Suitable and unsuitable extinguishing media
In case of fire: Use carbon dioxide, chemical powder agent and appropriate foam to extinguish surrounding products.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire-fighters
During a fire, irritating/toxic smoke and fumes may be generated. Do not enter fire area without proper protection. Firefighters should wear proper protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece. Shield personnel to protect from venting, rupturing or bursting cans. Move containers from fire area if it can be done without risk. Water spray may be useful in cooling equipment and cans exposed to heat and flame.
Section 6- ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Restrict access to area until completion of clean-up. Ensure clean-up is conducted by trained personnel only. All persons dealing with clean-up should wear the appropriate protective equipment (See Section 8).
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Ventilate area of release. Stop the leak if it can be done safely. Contain and absorb any spilled liquid concentrate with inert absorbent material, then place material into a container for later disposal (see Section 13). Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazards as the spilled product. Notify the appropriate authorities as required.
Section 7- HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Wear gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection.
Before handling, it is very important that engineering controls are operating, and that protective equipment requirements and personal hygiene measures are being followed. People working with this chemical should be properly trained regarding its hazards and its safe use. Inspect containers for leaks before handling. Label containers appropriately. Ensure proper ventilation. Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Avoid generating high concentrations of dusts, vapours or mists. Keep away from incompatible materials (Section 10). Keep containers closed when not in use. Empty containers are always dangerous. Refer also to Section 8.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep container tightly closed. Keep cool. Store locked up. Store away from incompatible materials (Section 10). Inspect all incoming containers to make sure they are properly labelled and not damaged. Storage area should be clearly identified, clear of obstruction and accessible only to trained personnel. Inspect periodically for damage or leaks.
Section 8- EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Control parameters (biological limit values or exposure limit values and source of those values)
Exposure limits: CAS 111-76-2 – ACGIH – TLV-TWA 20 ppm & PEL-TWA 50 ppm;
Appropriate engineering controls
Use under well-ventilated conditions. Local exhaust ventilation system is recommended to maintain concentrations of contaminants below exposure limits. Make emergency eyewash stations, safety/quick-drench showers, and washing facilities available in work area.
Individual protection measures/personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection is required if the concentrations are higher than the exposure limits. Use a NIOSH approved respirators if the exposure limits are unknown. Chemically protective gloves (impervious), and other protective clothing to prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact, must be worn during all handling operations. Wear protective chemical splash goggles to prevent mists from entering the eyes. Wash hands/nails/face thoroughly after handling. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Practice good personal hygiene after using this material. Remove and wash contaminated work clothing before re-use.
