FIRST AID MEASURES
Does not contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) therefore is no risk to health via inhalation.
Skin Contact: If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin with running water. If irritation occurs seek medical advice.
Eye Contact: If in eyes, wash out immediately with water. In all cases of eye contamination it is a sensible precaution to seek medical advice.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth with water. If swallowed, give a glass of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical advice.
Medical Attention & Special Treatment
FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Hazards from combustion products:
Not combustible, however following evaporation of the water component of the material, the residual material can burn if ignited. On burning will emit toxic fumes.
Precautions for fire fighters and special protective equipment:
Fire fighters to wear self-contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing if risk of exposure to vapour or products of combustion.
Suitable Extinguishing Media:
Not combustible, however, if material is involved in a fire use: Fine water spray, normal foam, dry agent (carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder).
ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
If contamination of sewers or waterways has occurred advise local emergency services.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up:
Small Spills: Slippery when wet. Avoid accidents, clean up immediately. Collect in a container for disposal via special chemical waste collection.
Large Spills: Slippery when spilt. Avoid accidents, clean up immediately. Contain – prevent run off into drains and waterways. Use absorbent (soil, sand or other inert material). Collect and seal in properly labeled containers or drums for disposal.
HANDLING AND STORAGE
Conditions for safe storage:
Store in cool place and out of direct sunlight in temperatures less than 30 degrees Celsius. Keep containers closed when not in use – check regularly for leaks.
Precautions for safe handling:
Keep out of reach of children. Avoid eye contact and repeated or prolonged skin contact.
