4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
Harmful if swallowed. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person. Seek immediate medical attention.
Inhalation
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Seek medical attention if breathing problems develop
Skin Contact
In case of skin contact, immediately remove contaminated clothing and wash affected areas with water and
soap and then rinse with methylated spirits. Seek medical attention.
Eye Contact
In case of eye contact, hold eyelids open and rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
Other Information
Symptoms Caused by Exposure:
Inhalation: May cause respiratory irritation.
Skin Contact: May cause irritation, redness, itchiness and skin dryness.
Eye Contact: May cause irritation, tearing, stinging, blurred vision and pain.
Ingestion: May cause irritation to mouth, throat and stomach with effects including mucous build up, irritation
to the tongue and lips and pains in the stomach.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Use fire extinguishing methods suitable to surrounding conditions. CO₂, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.
HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
When fighting a major fire wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective equipment.

Specific Hazards Arising from the Chemical:
Hazardous combustion products include oxides of carbon.
This material is not a flammable or combustible liquid.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear approved respiratory protection, chemical resistant gloves, protective clothing and safety boots.
Evacuate all non-essential personnel from affected area. Do not breathe vapours. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions
In the event of a major spill, prevent spillage from entering drains or water courses.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Stop leak if safe to do so and absorb spill with sand, earth, vermiculite or some other absorbent material.
Collect the spilled material and place into a suitable container for disposal. Wash spill area with plenty of water.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Use of safe work practices are recommended to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation of vapours. Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.
Food, beverages and tobacco products should not be stored or consumed where this material is in use.
Always wash hands before smoking, eating, drinking or using the toilet. Wash contaminated clothing and other protective equipment before storage or re-use.
Provide eyewash fountains and safety showers in close proximity to points of potential exposure.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in a cool, dry and well ventilated area. Keep in original container tightly closed when not in use. Protect
from heat, sparks, open flames and other sources of ignition. Keep away from strong oxidising agents.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
Ensure adequate ventilation of the working area.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Eye and face protectors for protection against splashing materials or liquids. See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1337 for more information.
Skin protection
Nitrile or neoprene gloves. See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2161 for more information. When selecting gloves for use against certain chemicals, the degradation resistance, permeation rate and permeation breakthrough time should be considered.
Occupational protective clothing (depending on conditions in which it has to be used, in particular as regards the period for which it is worn, which shall be determined on the basis of the seriousness of the risk, the frequency of exposure to the risk, the characteristics of the workstation of each worker and the performance of the protective clothing). See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4501 for more information.
Body protection
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Respiratory protection
When vapours approach the exposure standards then the use of a half-face organic vapour respirator with dust/mist filter is recommended.
When vapours exceed the exposure standards, the use of an positive pressure demand self-contained or airline breathing apparatus is recommended. Filter capacity and respirator type depends on exposure levels.
If entering spaces where the airborne concentration of a contaminant is unknown then the use of a selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with positive pressure air supply is recommended.
See Australian Standards AS/NZS 1715 and 1716 for more information.
