4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
Call for a doctor immediately.
Inhalation
In case of unconsciousness place patient stably in side position for transportation.
Skin Contact
Immediately wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly.
Eye Contact
Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.
Other Information

HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: Water with full jet.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Keep unprotected persons away.
Environmental precautions
Inform respective authorities in case of seepage into water course or sewage system. Do not allow to enter sewers/ surface or ground water.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Absorb with liquid-binding material (sand, diatomite, acid binders, universal binders, sawdust). Dispose contaminated material as waste according to item 13.
Ensure adequate ventilation. Do not flush with water or aqueous cleansing agents.

Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Tightly sealed goggles.
Skin protection
Protective gloves
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/ the chemical mixture.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.
Material of gloves.
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.
Penetration time of glove material.
The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
Body protection
No information available.
Respiratory protection
In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use self-contained respiratory protective device.
