HAZARDOUS IDENTIFICATION

 
 
Most Important Hazards :

Harmful , dangerous for the environment

Flammable

Irritating to skin and eyes

May cause sensitization by skin contact

Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment

Harmful: may cause lung damage if swallowed

Keep out of reach of children

Avoid contact with skin and eyes

In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice

Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection

Avoid release to the environment

If swallowed, do not induce vomiting: seek medical advice immediately

 
   
SECTION IV

FIRST AID MEASURES

 
   
After eye contact :

In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes

 
   
After skin contact:
After contact with skin, wash immediately affected area with soap and plenty of water
 
   
After inhalation :
If inhaled, remove person to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen
 
   
After ingestion :
If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if patient is conscious). Obtai medical advice.
 
   
SECTTON V

FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

   
Extinguishing media:

Carbon dioxide ; Dry Chemical ; Universal Type Foam

   
Special fire fighting procedures
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes
 
   
Unusual fire and explosion hazards :
Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions
   
SECTION VI

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

   
Wear respirator, chemical safety goggles, rubber boots and heavy rubber gloves. Keep people away, evacuate area.

To avoid possible contamination of the environment, Do not discharge into any drains, surface waters or groundwaters.

Cover with an inert, inorganic, non-combustible absorbent material (e.g. dry-lime, sand, soda ash). Place in covered containers using non-sparking tools and transport outdoors.

Avoid open flames or sources of ignition (e.g. pilot lights on gas hot water heater). Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete. Dispose of in accordance with current laws and regulations.

 
   
SECTION VII

HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
   
Measures should be taken to prevent materials from being splashed into the eyes or on the skin. Wear eyeshields and protective clothing. Smoking should not be permitted in work areas.

Provide suitable air extraction ventilation in the work areas. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Keep material away from sources of ignition (e.g. hot surfaces, sparks, flame and static discharges.

To be stored in tightly sealed and preferably full containers in cool, dry and ventilated area. Protect from heat/overheating and light sources.

Keep in glass, suitable plastic, aluminum or laquer-lined containers.
