Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES

SWALLOWED

· Immediately give a glass of water.
· First aid is not generally required. If in doubt, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.

EYE

■ If this product comes in contact with eyes:
· Wash out immediately with water.
· If irritation continues, seek medical attention.
· Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.

SKIN

Not normally a risk due to non-irritating nature of product.
If unintended contact occurs remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly.

INHALED

· If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area.
· Other measures are usually unnecessary.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN

■ Treat symptomatically.

Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

■ There is no restriction on the type of extinguisher which may be used.

FIRE FIGHTING

· Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard.
· Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves for fire only.
· Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water courses.
· Use fire fighting procedures suitable for surrounding area.
· DO NOT approach containers suspected to be hot.
· Cool fire exposed containers with water spray from a protected location.
· If safe to do so, remove containers from path of fire.
· Equipment should be thoroughly decontaminated after use.

FIRE/EXPLOSION HAZARD

· The material is not readily combustible under normal conditions.
· However, it will break down under fire conditions and the organic component may burn.
· Not considered to be a significant fire risk.
· Heat may cause expansion or decomposition with violent rupture of containers.
· Decomposes on heating and may produce toxic fumes of carbon monoxide (CO).
· May emit acrid smoke.

FIRE INCOMPATIBILITY

■ Avoid contamination with strong oxidising agents as ignition may result.

HAZCHEM

None

PERSONAL PROTECTION

Glasses: Gloves: Respirator:
Not normally required. When handling larger quantities: Type A-P Filter of sufficient capacity

Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

MINOR SPILLS

■ Slippery when spilt.
Wear impervious gloves and safety glasses.
Wipe up and absorb small quantities with vermiculite or other absorbent material.
Place in clean drum then flush area with water.

MAJOR SPILLS

■ Slippery when spilt.
Wear impervious gloves and safety glasses.
Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water courses.
Stop leak if safe to do so.
Contain spill with sand, earth or vermiculite.
Collect recoverable product into labelled containers for recycling.
Collect residues and seal in labelled drums for disposal.
Wash spill area with large quantities of water.
· After clean up operations, decontaminate and launder all protective clothing and equipment before storing 
  and re-using.

 

Personal Protective Equipment advice is contained in Section 8 of the MSDS.

Section 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE

PROCEDURE FOR HANDLING

· Limit all unnecessary personal contact.
· Wear protective clothing when risk of exposure occurs.
· Use in a well-ventilated area.
· When handling DO NOT eat, drink or smoke.
· Always wash hands with soap and water after handling.
· Avoid physical damage to containers.
· Use good occupational work practice.
· Observe manufacturer's storing and handling recommendations.

SUITABLE CONTAINER

■ Plastic container.

STORAGE INCOMPATIBILITY

■ Avoid storage with oxidisers.

STORAGE REQUIREMENTS

· Keep dry.
· Store under cover.
· Protect containers against physical damage.
· Observe manufacturer's storing and handling recommendations.
Store above -15 deg C and below 35 deg C.

PERSONAL PROTECTION

EYE

■ No special equipment for minor exposure i.e. when handling small quantities.
· OTHERWISE:
· Safety glasses with side shields.
· Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of chemical exposure, begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed at the first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly. [CDC NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59].

HANDS/FEET

Material is used as soiling barrier to protect bare skin.
It is not a substitute for the chemical protection provided by gloves.

OTHER

· Overalls.
· Eyewash unit.

RESPIRATOR

■ Selection of the Class and Type of respirator will depend upon the level of breathing zone contaminant and the chemical nature of the contaminant. Protection Factors (defined as the ratio of contaminant outside and inside the mask) may also be important.

Breathing Zone Level ppm (volume) Maximum Protection Factor Half-face Respirator Full-Face Respirator

* - Continuous Flow ** - Continuous-flow or positive pressure demand. The local concentration of material, quantity and conditions of use determine the type of personal protective equipment required. For further information consult site specific CHEMWATCH data (if available), or your Occupational Health and Safety Advisor.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

■ None under normal operating conditions.
