While flushing, remove clothes which do not adhere to affected area. Call an ambulance. Continue flushing during transport to hospital. Keep victim warm. Keep victim under observation. Symptoms may be delayed. SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES 5.1. Extinguishing Media Suitable Extinguishing Media: Alcohol resistant foam. Water fog. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, sand or earth may be used for small fires only. Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire. 5.2. Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture Fire Hazard: Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back. This product is a poor conductor of electricity and can become electrostatically charged. If sufficient charge is accumulated, ignition of flammable mixtures can occur. This liquid may accumulate static electricity when filling properly grounded containers. Static electricity accumulation may be significantly increased by the presence of small quantities of water or other contaminants. Material will float and may ignite on surface of water. During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed. Explosion Hazard: Highly flammable liquid and vapor. Reactivity: 5.3. Advice for Firefighters Precautionary Measures Fire: Firefighting Instructions: In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk. Protection During Firefighting: Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire. SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES 6.1. Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures General Measures: 6.1.1. For Non-emergency Personnel Protective Equipment: Emergency Procedures: 6.1.2. For Emergency Responders Protective Equipment: Keep unnecessary personnel away. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Keep out of low areas. Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Do not breathe mist or vapor. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. Transfer by mechanical means such as vacuum truck to a salvage tank or other suitable container for recovery or safe disposal. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained. For personal protection, see section 8 of the SDS. Emergency Procedures: 6.2. Environmental Precautions Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. 6.3. Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up For Containment: Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Use only non-sparking tools. Keep combustibles (wood, paper, oil, etc.) away from spilled material. This product is miscible in water. Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite, sand or earth to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal. Following product recovery, flush area with water. Small Spills: Absorb with earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers for later disposal. Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination. Methods for Cleaning Up: 6.4. Reference to Other Sections See heading 8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection. SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE 7.1. Precautions for Safe Handling Additional Hazards When Processed: Obtain special instructions before use. Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Do not handle, store or open near an open flame, sources of heat or sources of ignition. Protect material from direct sunlight. Explosion-proof general and local exhaust ventilation. Minimize fire risks from flammable and combustible materials (including combustible dust and static accumulating liquids) or dangerous reactions with incompatible materials. Handling operations that can promote accumulation of static charges include but are not limited to: mixing, filtering, pumping at high flow rates, splash filling, creating mists or sprays, tank and container filling, tank cleaning, sampling, gauging, switch loading, vacuum truck operations. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Use non-sparking tools and explosion-proof equipment. Do not breathe mist or vapor. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Do not taste or swallow. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Pregnant or breastfeeding women must not handle this product. Should be handled in closed systems, if possible. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. For product usage instructions, please see the product label. Hygiene Measures: When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants. 7.2. Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities Technical Measures: Storage Conditions: Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Eliminate sources of ignition. Avoid spark promoters. These alone may be insufficient to remove static electricity. Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in an area equipped with sprinklers. Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the SDS). 7.3. Specific End Use(s) SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION 8.1.
