First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water 
for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Get    
medical attention if irritation develops and persists.                            
First-aid Measures After Ingestion: Rinse mouth. Call a POISON CENTER or          
doctor/physician if you feel unwell.

SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                                 

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Water fog. Foam. Dry chemical powder. Carbon dioxide
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. During fire, gases  
hazardous to health may be formed.                                                
General fire hazards: Flammable liquid and vapor.                                 
Explosion Hazard:                                                                 

5.3.  Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures Fire:                                                      
Firefighting Instructions: In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. 
Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved   
materials. Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk.          
Specific methods: Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of
other involved materials. Move containers from fire area if you can do so without 
risk. In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.                 
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: 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 touch damaged containers or spilled
material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces  
before entering them. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages
cannot be contained. For personal protection, see section 8 of the SDS.           

6.1.1.      For Non-emergency Personnel
Protective Equipment:                                                             
Emergency Procedures:                                                             

6.1.2.      For Emergency Responders
Protective Equipment:                                                             
Emergency Procedures:                                                             

6.2.  Environmental Precautions
Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground.                    

6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment:                                                                  
Methods for Cleaning Up: 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.                                                       
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. Prevent entry into         
waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas. Following product recovery, flush  
area with water.                                                                  
Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface 
thoroughly to remove residual contamination. Never return spills to original      
containers for re-use. For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS.             

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: Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Do
not handle, store or open near an open flame, sources of heat or sources of       
ignition. Protect material from direct sunlight. Do not smoke. Take precautionary 
measures against static discharges. All equipment used when handling the product  
must be grounded. Use non-sparking tools and explosion-proof equipment. Avoid     
prolonged exposure. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal       
protective equipment. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Wash contaminated
clothing before reuse.                                                            
Hygiene Measures: When using do not 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   

7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures:                                                               
Storage Conditions: Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Prevent           
electrostatic charge build-up by using common bonding and grounding techniques.   
Store in original tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry place out of     
direct sunlight. Store in a well-ventilated place. Refrigeration recommended.     
Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the SDS). Keep in an    
area equipped with sprinklers.

13.1. Waste treatment methods
Waste Disposal Recommendations:                                                   
Disposal instructions: Collect and reclaim or dispose in sealed containers at     
licensed waste disposal site. This material and its container must be disposed of 
as hazardous waste. Do not allow this material to drain into sewers/water         
supplies. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with chemical or used    
container. Dispose of contents/container in accordance with                       
local/regional/national/international regulations.                                
Local disposal regulations: Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations.
Hazardous waste code: The waste code should be assigned in discussion between the 
user, the producer and the waste disposal company.                                
Waste from residues / unused products: Dispose of in accordance with local        
regulations. Empty containers or liners may retain some product residues. This    
material and its container must be disposed of in a safe manner (see: Disposal    
Additional Information:                                                           
Contaminated packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste     
handling site for recycling or disposal. Since emptied containers may retain      
product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.
