4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
No need for first aid is anticipated.
Inhalation
No need for first aid is anticipated.
Skin Contact
No need for first aid is anticipated.
Eye Contact
No need for first aid is anticipated.
Other Information
See Section 11.1. Information on toxicological effects.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Material will not burn. Use a fire fighting agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
HAZCHEM
Closed containers exposed to heat from fire may build pressure and explode. Exposure to extreme heat can give rise to thermal decomposition.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
When fire fighting conditions are severe and total thermal decomposition of the product is possible, wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained, positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus, bunker coat and pants,bands around arms, waist and legs, face mask, and protective covering for exposed areas of the head.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Evacuate area. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Ventilate the area with fresh air.
For large spill, or spills in confined spaces, provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust vapours, in accordance with
good industrial hygiene practice. Refer to other sections of this SDS for information regarding physical and health hazards,
respiratory protection, ventilation, and personal protective equipment.
Environmental precautions
Avoid release to the environment.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
If possible, seal leaking container. Place leaking containers in a well-ventilated area, preferably an operating exhaust hood, or if necessary outdoors on an impermeable surface until appropriate packaging for the leaking container or its contents is available. Contain spill. Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material. Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Remember, adding an absorbent material does not remove a physical, health, or environmental hazard. Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. Clean up residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorised person. Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the solvent label and SDS. Seal the container. Dispose of collected material as soon as possible in accordance with applicable local/regional/national/international regulations.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Do not breathe thermal decomposition products. Avoid skin contact with hot material. For industrial or professional use only. Store work clothes separately from other clothing, food and tobacco products. Do not pierce or burn, even after use. No smoking: Smoking while using this product can result in contamination of the tobacco and/or smoke and lead to the formation of hazardous decomposition products.
Conditions for safe storage
Protect from sunlight. Do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50C/122F. Protect from sunlight. Store in a well ventilated place. Store away from strong bases.

Engineering controls
Provide appropriate local exhaust when product is heated. For those situations where the material might be exposed to extreme overheating due to misuse or equipment failure, use with appropriate local exhaust ventilation sufficient to maintain levels of thermal decomposition products below their exposure guidelines. Do not remain in area where available oxygen may be reduced. Use general dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below relevant Exposure Limits and/or control dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. If ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Select and use eye/face protection to prevent contact based on the results of an exposure assessment. The following eye/face protection(s) are recommended:
Full Face Shield
Indirect Vented Goggles
Skin protection
No chemical protective gloves are required.
Body protection
Wear heat insulating gloves when handling hot material to prevent thermal burns.
Respiratory protection
During heating:
Use a positive pressure supplied-air respirator if there is a potential for over exposure from an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or under any other circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.
