4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
Rinse mouth. Seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel.
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If discomfort occurs or persists, contact physician. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes and wash before reuse.
Skin Contact
Flush for 15 minutes with soap and plenty of water. If discomfort occurs or persists, contact a physician.
Eye Contact
Flush area for 15 minutes with plenty of water and wash with soap and water. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do. If discomfort occurs or persists, contact a physician.
Other Information
Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: May cause irritation of the respiratory system. Maintain housekeeping and personal hygiene to minimise exposure and prevent sensitisation.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Water fog, dry chemical, CO₂, or "alcohol resistant" foam.
HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Fire fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Can decompose to emit toxic ammonia and chlorine vapours. Hazardous combustion products: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ammonia, hydrogen chloride gas, ruthenium oxide.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Keep unnecessary personnel away. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). Wear appropriate respiratory protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Avoid breathing dust. Ventilate area if easy to do so, Contact local authorities if significant spillages cannot be contained.
Environmental precautions
No special measures required.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Large spills: Contain actively spilling material if safe and easy to do so. Do not let product enter drains.Small spills: Wet brush and collect to waste receptacles.Contain spillage and then collect with an electrically-protected vacuum cleaner or by wet brushing and place in container for disposal according to local regulations
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Keep containers closed. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing dust. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment and wash thoroughly after handling. Keep away from ignition sources.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in cool, dry area in a tightly-closed product container away from sources of ignition or flame. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Incompatibilities: Store away from strong acids or oxidising agents.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
Ventilation required: Local exhaust required in handling area. Mechanical: desirable to ensure concentration of material below TLV/TWA levels. Closed ventilation system - dust (laboratory fume hood).
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Wear safety glasses with side shields or goggles or face shield.
Skin protection
Wear chemical-resistant gloves. Observe good chemical hygiene practices. Do not smoke or eat while using product. Wash hands or exposed skin after using the product.
Body protection
Protective work clothing that covers skin and prevents exposures.
Respiratory protection
Utilise organic vapour respirator if airborne levels are not maintained or if ventilation is inadequate. Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator with multi-purpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN(EU).
