vomiting. In case be unconsciousness, immediately get medical
treatment. At the time if vomiting occurs, the patient should lie on
their left side while vomiting to reduce the risk of aspiration.

5. Fire Fighting Measures


Extinguishing Media : Water spray, Dry chemical powder, CO2, Alcohol resistant foam.
Hazardous decomposition, combustion products.
: Carbon monoxide and poisonous gas by decomposition reaction.
Method of extinguish a fire
: Extinguish a small fire with powder or carbon dioxide ten apply
water to cool. Extinguish a big fire with water bar or spray or foam or
reinforced liquid then apply water to cool. Escape the fire with many
water.
Protect for the fire fighter : Must wear proper protective equipment. Extinguish a fire from the
windward for avoids inhalation poisonous gas. Keep the safety
distance because there is an explosion hazard.

6. Accidental Release Measures


Caution for Human : Must wear proper protective equipment and work from the windward.
Stretch rope at leaking area and keep out except person concerned.
Ventilate at leaking area, if necessary.
Caution for environment : Don't allow direct to enter drain or water courses.
Method for cleaning up : In case small, wipe off with cloth then burns in safety space
immediately. In case large, stop an outflow with earth and sand then
collect. Adsorbs remainder with sawdust, diatomite or dry sand then
disposes of proper. Soaks water if keeps for the time.
Prevention for secondaly disaster
: Remove the sources of ignition in neighborhood immediately. Use
the safety tools as don't generate sparks.
MSDS : Mepoxe M (P. 3/5)

7. Handling and Storage


Handling : Handle well in ventilated area. Wear proper protective equipment for
guard eyes and skin. Avoid strong rubbing and shock. Eliminate all
sources of ignition, and don't generate flames or sparks. Keep away
from reducing agents, amines, acids, alkalies and heavy metal
compounds.
Use materials of equipment stainless steel, glass lining, polyethylene.
Don't use irons, copper compounds, leads, and rubbers. Take
measures for static electricity as ground. Use explosion protected
equipment. Wash empty container with water at once, after then put
the cap and avoid the direct sunlight.
Storage : Store in accordance with local and national regulations. Keep in the
cool dark place of less than 30oC. Don't use fire. Keep away from
food, drink and other chemicals, especially amines, acids, alkalies,
heavy metal compounds and reduction agents. Take measures for the
fall and the fall prevention. Must not put the horizontal and the
reverse.
Container : Use materials stainless steel, glass lining, polyethylene for avoids
decomposition.

8. Exposure Controls and Human Protection

13. Disposal Consideration


General : It disposes properly according to the law in each country and the
region.
Incinerate : Use proper incinerator. When the incineration is done,it incinerates
little by little mixing it with an inert high boiling point solvent. Or,
the diatom soil and the vermiculite, etc. are made to absorb it and it
burns. If there is no proper incinerator, the consignment disposal is
done to the industrial waste trader who obtains permission.
Contaminated packing : Removed contents completely after then incinerated.
