4. FIRST AID MEASURES

For advice, contact Poisons Information Centre (Phone: 0800 Poison 764 766) or a doctor.

Ingestion:

If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting...give water. Use mouth to nose rather than mouth to mouth with artificial respiration .Obtain medical attention

Eye Contact:

Hold eyelids apart & flush the eye continuously with running water. Continue for at least 15 minutes or till advised by National Poisons Centre (0800 746 766)

Skin Contact:

If skin or hair contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing & flush as above with water

Inhalation;

Move to fresh air immediately. Keep person warm and at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If respiratory irritation, dizziness, nausea or unconsciousness occurs, seek immediate medical assistance. Begin artificial respiration if breathing stopped

First Aid facilities:

Provide eye baths & safety showers close to areas where splashing may occur.

Medical Attention:

Treat according to symptoms. Gastric lavage may be indicated if ingested. If ingested, material may be aspirated into the lungs and cause chemical pneumonitis, treat appropriately. General measures should be taken to control acidosis & maintain urine output.

This product contains light hydrocarbon material, or a component, may be associated with cardiac sensitisation following very high exposure (well above occupational exposure limits) or with concurrent exposure to high stress levels or heart stimulating substances like epinephrine. Administration of such substances should be avoided.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Evacuate area. Shut off product that may fuel a fire if safe to do so. Allow trained personnel to attend a fire in progress, providing firefighters with this Safety Data Sheet. Prevent extinguishing media from escaping to drains and waterways.

Suitable extinguishing media:

Dry chemical, Carbon Dioxide or foam

Hazards from combustion products:

Carbon Dioxide & carbon monoxide

Precautions for fire fighters and special protective equipment:

Full protective clothing, and in enclosed spaces wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Vapour is flammable and heavier than air. Vapour may travel across the ground and reach remote sources of ignition causing a flashback fire danger

Hazchem Code: 3YE

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Emergency Procedures

  • Prevent fluid from escaping to drains & waterways.
  • Contain leaking packaging in a containment drum.
  • Prevent vapours from building up in confined spaces.
  • Ensure drain valves are closed

Methods and materials for containment Major Land Spill

  • Eliminate sources of ignition
  • Warn occupants of downwind areas of possible fire & explosion hazard
  • Prevent liquid from entering sewers, watercourses, or low-lying areas
  • Keep public away from the area
  • Shut off the source of the spill if possible to do so
  • Advise authorities if substance has entered a watercourse or sewer or has contaminated soil or vegetation
  • Take measures to minimise the effect on ground water
  • Contain spilled liquid with sand or earth
  • Consult an expert on disposal of recovered material & ensure conformity to disposal rules

Major Water Spill

  • Eliminate any source of ignition
  • Warn occupants & shipping in downwind areas of possible fire & explosion hazard
  • Notify the port or relevant authority & keep public away
  • Shut off the source of spill if possible & safe to do so
  • Confine spill if possible
  • Remove the product from the surface by skimming or with absorbent material
  • Consult an expert on disposal & ensure conformity to local regulations of disposal

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS: PERSONAL PROTECTION

National Exposure Standards

Time weighted average (TWA) is 600mg/m3 (159 ppm)

Short term exposure limit (STEL) is not specified, which is the max allowable exposure concentration at any time

Biological limit values

For guidance; n-hexane in urine, 0.4 mg/L (as 2,5-hexanedione without hydrolysis)

Engineering Controls: Ventilation

The use of local exhaust ventilation is recommended to control process emissions near the source. Lab samples should be handled in a fume hood. Use explosion proof ventilation equipment.

Personal Protective Equipment Respiratory Protection:

Where concentrations in air may exceed the limits described in the National Exposure Standards it is recommended to use a half-face mask to avoid inhalation. Type ‘A’ filter material to be used

Eye Protection:

Always use safety glasses or face shield when handling this product

Skin/Body Protection:

Long sleeves & long trousers recommended with enclosed footwear or safety boots

Chemical resistant gloves to be used
