4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation

In the event of dizziness or nausea, remove casualty to


fresh air. If symptoms persist, obtain medical
attention.

Ingestion

If contamination of the mouth occurs, wash out


thoroughly with water.
Except as a deliberate act, the ingestion of large
amounts of product is unlikely. If it should occur, do
not induce vomiting; obtain medical advice.

Skin

organic solvents. Remove heavily contaminated clothing
and wash underlying skin.

Eye

Wash eye thoroughly with copious quantities of water,


ensuring eyelids are held open. Obtain medical advice
if any pain or redness develops or persists.

First Aid
Facilities

An eye wash fountain, safety shower and a general


washing facility.

Advice to
Doctor

Treat symptomatically. Aspiration into the lungs may


result in chemical pneumonitis.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable
Extinguishing
Media

Use extinguishing media suitable for surrounding


environment. DO NOT USE water jets.
Fires in confined spaces should be dealt with by
trained personnel wearing approved breathing apparatus.

Hazards from
Combustion
Products

Nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and


cracking products of organic compounds.

Specific
Hazards

Toxic fumes may be evolved on burning or exposure to


heat.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Emergency
Procedures

Increase ventilation. Spilled material may make


surfaces slippery. Evacuate all unnecessary personnel.

Wear Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus and full


protective clothing to minimise exposure. Do not
discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Contain spillage by damming and cover with inert, non
combustible absorbent material. Use clean tools to
collect the material and place into suitable labelled
containers ready for disposal. If large quantities of
this material enter the waterways contact the
Environmental Protection Authority, or your local Waste
Management Authority.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Repeated or prolonged
Safe Handling exposure without protection should be prevented in
order to lessen the possibility of disorders. It is
essential that all who come into contact with this
material, maintain high standards of personal hygiene
ie. washing hands prior to eating, drinking, smoking or
going to the toilet.
Conditions for The product should be stored in a cool, dry, well
Safe Storage
ventilated area below 40C, away from incompatible
materials. Keep containers tightly closed when not in
use and protected against physical damage. Inspect
regularly for deficiencies such as damage or leaks.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

National
Exposure
Standards

No exposure standards have been established for this


material by the National Occupational Health And Safety
Commission (NOHSC). However as with all chemicals,
exposure should be to the least possible levels.

Engineering
Controls

Where material is heated and/or excessive vapours or


mists are generated, the use of respiratory protection,
or a local exhaust ventilation system is recommended.

Respiratory
Protection

Not necessary if room is well ventilated however, where


ventilation is inadequate and vapours/mists are
generated, the use of an approved respirator with
filter complying with AS/NZS 1715 and AS/NZS 1716 is
recommended; however final choice of appropriate
breathing protection is dependant upon actual airborne
concentrations and the type of breathing protection
required will vary according to individual
circumstances. Expert advice may be required to make
this decision. Reference should be made to Australian
Standards AS/NZS 1715- Selection, Use and Maintenance
of Respiratory Protective Devices; and AS/NZS 1716Respiratory Protective Devices.

Eye Protection Chemical safety glasses or face shield as appropriate.


Final choice of appropriate eye/face protection will

vary according to individual circumstances including


methods of handling or engineering controls as
determined by appropriate risk assessments. Eye
protection should conform to Australian/New Zealand
Standard AS/NZS 1337- Eye Protectors for Industrial
Applications.
Hand Protection If skin contact is likely wear impervious protective
clothing and/or gloves.
Final choice of appropriate glove type will vary
according to individual circumstances, including
methods of handling or engineering controls as
determined by appropriate risk assessments. Refer to
AS/NZS 2161 Occupational protective gloves- Selection,
use and maintenance.
