4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious give water. If sickness persists transport to hospital or doctor.
Inhalation
If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious give water. If sickness persists transport to hospital or doctor.
Skin Contact
If material is splashed onto the skin, remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly with water and soap if available. If irritation persists transport to hospital or doctor.
Eye Contact
If material is splashed into eyes, immediately, flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes, ensuring eye lids are held open. If irritation persists transport to hospital or doctor.
Other Information
Treat symptomatically
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
If safe to do so, move undamaged containers from fire area.
HAZCHEM
4X
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Use extinguishing media suitable for surrounding fire situation. Material is not a flammable/combustible liquid. Decomposes on heating emitting oxides of carbon
Fire fighters to wear Self?contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) in confined spaces, in oxygen deficient atmospheres or if exposed to products of decomposition. Full protective clothing is also recommended.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Not available.
Environmental precautions
Not available.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Material may be slippery when spilt. Walk cautiously. Ventilate area. Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contact, as outlined under personal protection in this MSDS. Bund area using sand or soil ? to prevent run off into drains and waterways. Use absorbent (soil, sand, vermiculite or other inert material). Collect and seal in properly labeled containers for disposal. Remainder of material can be washed to drain with plenty of water.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Wear appropriate protective equipment and use in a well ventilated area (refer to Section 8). Wash thoroughly after handling, maintain workplace hygiene.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from sources of heat or ignition. Store away from oxidising agents. Keep containers closed, when not using the product. Store in original packages as approved by manufacturer.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
Maintain adequate ventilation at all times. In most circumstances natural ventilation systems are adequate unless the material is heated, reacted or otherwise changed in some type of chemical reaction, then the use of a local exhaust ventilation system is recommended
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Chemical goggles or face shield to protect eyes
Skin protection
PVC or natural rubber
Body protection
PVC or natural rubber apron or splash suit.
Respiratory protection
Avoid breathing of vapours/gases. Select and use respirators in accordance with AS/NZS 1715/1716. The use of a P1 dust mask (disposable) or with replaceable filters is recommended. Filter capacity and respirator type depends on exposure levels and type of contaminant. If entering spaces where the airborne concentration of a contaminant is unknown then the use of a Self?contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with positive pressure air supply complying with AS/NZS 1715 / 1716, or any other acceptable International Standard is recommended.
