SECTION 4 - FIRST AID

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

EYE CONTACT

Hold eyelids apart and immediately flush eyes with plenty of water

for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical advice.

 

SKIN CONTACT

Wash affected area with soap and water. Remove contaminated

clothing and shoes. Destroy contaminated leather apparel. Launder

contaminated clothing prior to reuse.

 

INHALATION

Move patient to fresh air. If breathing has stopped or is labored

give assisted respiration (e.g. mouth-to-mouth). Supplemental

oxygen may be indicated. Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn

victim's head to the side. Seek medical advice.

 

INGESTION

If swallowed, call a physician immediately. Remove stomach

contents by gastric suction or induce vomiting only as directed by

medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious

person.

FIRE HAZARD CLASSIFICATION (OSHA/NFPA)

Class IIIB

 

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

Ignition will give rise to a Class B fire. In case of fire use:

Water streams.

 

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES

A face shield should be worn. Firefighters should wear butyl

rubber boots, gloves, and body suit and a self-contained breathing

apparatus.

Retain expended liquids from fire fighting for later disposal.

 

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS

May generate toxic or irritating combustion products.

Contact of liquid with skin must be prevented.

Sudden reaction and fire may result if product is mixed with an

oxidizing agent.

May generate carbon monoxide gas.

May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. May generate ammonia gas.

Personnel in vicinity and downwind should be evacuated.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

CONTAINMENT TECHNIQUES (Removal of ignition sources, diking etc)

Stop the leak, if possible. Reduce vapor spreading with a water

spray. Shut off or remove all ignition sources. Construct a dike

to prevent spreading (includes molten liquids until they freeze).

 

CLEAN-UP PROCEDURES

If recovery is not feasible, admix with dry soil, sand or non-

reactive absorbent and place in an appropriate chemical waste

container. Transfer to containers by suction, preparatory for

later disposal. Flush area with water spray. Clean-up personnel

must be equipped with self contained breathing apparatus and butyl

rubber protective clothing. For large spills, recover spilled

material with a vacuum truck.

 

OTHER EMERGENCY ADVICE

Wear protective clothing, boots, gloves, and eye protection.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

STORAGE

Keep away from: acids, oxidizers. Keep in cool, dry, ventilated

storage and in closed containers. Store under inert atmosphere.

Store under a nitrogen atmosphere. Do not store in reactive metal

containers.

 

HANDLING

Avoid contact with skin or eyes. Handle under inert gas atmosphere

in dry equipment. When handling, do not eat, drink, or smoke.

Avoid using in any spray application without strict conformance to

all applicable electrical codes and the OSHA limit for maximum

allowable airborne concentrations.

 

OTHER PRECAUTIONS

Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily

accessible. Adhere to work practice rules established by

government regulations (e.g. OSHA).

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 8 - PERSONAL PROTECTION / EXPOSURE CONTROLS

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

EYE PROTECTION

Chemical safety glasses.

 

HAND PROTECTION

Neoprene rubber gloves. Impermeable gloves. Cuffed butyl rubber

gloves. Nitrile rubber gloves. Polyvinyl chloride gloves.

 

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION

Not required under normal conditions in a well-ventilated

workplace. Under the following conditions a respirator may be

required: when product vapor concentration exceeds the limits

listed in section 2, during repair and cleaning of equipment,

during transfer or discharge of the product, sampling, spray

applications. Types of respirators that may be used include the

following: Chemical Cartridge Respirator with face piece to

protect against the organic vapor, Supplied air respirator with

full face piece, Self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure

demand mode. In emergency conditions use a self-contained

breathing apparatus in pressure demand mode.

 

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

Impervious clothing. Long sleeved clothing. Slicker Suit.

 

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

Maintain air concentrations in work spaces in accord with

standards outlined in Sections 2 and 3.

 

WORK AND HYGIENIC PRACTICES

Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.

Wash at the end of each workshift and before eating, smoking or

using the toilet. Promptly remove clothing that becomes

contaminated. Discard contaminated leather articles. Launder or

discard contaminated clothing.
