Advice for Firefighters: Special protective equipment for firefighters Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus.
Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.
Info for Firefighting: Further information Remove container from danger zone and cool with water. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system. Accidental Release Measures
Personal Precautions: Advice for non-emergency personnel: Do not breathe vapours, aerosols. Avoid substance contact. Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.
Advice for emergency responders: Protective equipment
Environmental Precautions: Do not let product enter drains. Risk of explosion.
Method for Containment: Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills. Observe possible material restrictions. Take up carefully
with liquid-absorbent material (e.g. Chemizorb®). Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area.

Handling and Storage
Personal Precautions: Advice on safe handling
Observe label precautions.
Work under hood. Do not inhale substance/mixture. Avoid generation of vapours/aerosols.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Take precautionary
measures against static discharge.

Hygiene measures
Immediately change contaminated clothing. Apply preventive skin protection. Wash hands and
face after working with substance.

The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374,
for example KCL 898 Butoject® (full contact), KCL 730 Camatril® -Velours (splash contact).
The breakthrough times stated above were determined by KCL in laboratory tests acc. to EN374 with samples of the recommended glove types.
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet<(>,<)> supplied by us and for the designated use.
When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves.
Body Protection: Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.
Other protective equipment
Flame retardant antistatic protective clothing.
Respiratory Protection: required when vapours/aerosols are generated.
Recommended Filter type: Filter A (acc. to DIN 3181) for vapours of organic compounds The entrepeneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer.
These measures have to be properly documented.
