Give a glass of water. Do NOT induce vomiting. Place patients head downwards if vomiting occurs. Prevent it entering lungs, as aspiration of material into the lungs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal. Immediately call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician.
Immediately irrigate with large quantities of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do so. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists: Call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician.
Wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. If skin irritation occurs: Get medical advice/attention.
Give fresh air, careful not to become a casualty yourself. Remove and loosen clothing. If breathing is normal make patient comfortable and keep warm till recovered. If breathing is difficult ensure the airways are clear and have a qualified person give oxygen from a face mask. If breathing has stopped commence (EAR) and if cardiac arrest has occurred, commence (CPR) and get medical advice/attention urgently.
Advice To Doctor: 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Foam, Carbon Dioxide or Dry Chemical Powder for a small fire. For a large fire use large quantities of fine water spray. Hazards from Combustion Products: If involved in a fire, toxic materials such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, isocyanate vapour, traces of hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride gas, hydrogen fluoride gas, various chlorine and/or fluorine compounds as well as hydrocarbons may form. Liberates oxygen, which will support combustion. Liberates heat. Precautions for Firefighters: Heating can cause rupture of containers with explosive force. If safe do so, remove all sources of ignition and any containers from the path of the fire. Keep cool with water spray. Burns fiercely when ignited. Organic peroxides provide oxygen for combustion so simple smothering actions are not effective against established fires. Due to the possibility of re-ignition, extinguished residues must be thoroughly cooled before approaching. Firefighters should wear self contained breathing apparatus with a full face and operated in the positive pressure mode. Hazchem Code: 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions: In case of an accidental release or spill, evacuate the danger area. Wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment (See section 8 of SDS). Do not breathe vapours. Extinguish all ignition sources and shut off the source of the spill. Ventilate the area. Environmental Precautions: Avoid release to the environment by bunding or covering drains. Containment: Contain and absorb the spill with absorbent material such as sand, soil or vermiculite. Transfer the material into drums, using non-sparking tools. Seal and label the drums. Contact the appropriate waste management authority for disposal.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions For Safe Handling: Wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment (See Section 8 of the SDS) when using this product. Ground the container and receiving equipment whilst using. Only use non-sparking tools and take precautionary measures against static discharge. Only use in a well-ventilated area or preferably apply the product in a spray paint booth with an adequate exhaust system and explosion-proof electrical, ventilation, and lighting equipment. Never eat, drink or smoke whilst handling this product. Always wash hands thoroughly after using this product and before smoking, eating, drinking or using the toilet. Conditions For Safe Storage: Keep containers away from heat/sparks/open flames/ hot surfaces. Store containers in a well-ventilated area and away sources of ignition, oxidising agents, other materials and/or foodstuffs. Store containers in a cool place, at temperatures not exceeding 50°C and out of direct sunlight. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use and check regularly for leaks. Store locked up. Store in accordance with local statutory requirements and applicable standards for Organic Peroxides, eg. AS 2714. 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Limits: TLV –TWA (mg/m3)
Engineering Controls: Ensure sufficient ventilation to maintain concentration below exposure standard. Only use in a well ventilated area or preferably apply the product in a spray paint booth with an adequate exhaust system. Keep containers sealed when not in use. Earth any mixing vessels when using this product. Personal Protection: Skin contact should be avoided by wearing impervious work clothing, boots and Neoprene or PVC gloves. Eyes should be protected by chemical goggles or safety glasses fitted with side shields (Refer to AS/NZS 1337). If an inhalation risk exists, an organic vapour respirator or a self-contained breathing apparatus, with a full face and operated in the positive pressure mode, should be used. Ensure cartridges are correct for the potential air contamination (Refer to AS/NZS 1715 and 1716). 9. PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES 10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
Chemical Stability: Stable under ordinary conditions of use and storage. Conditions to Avoid: Avoid all ignition sources, incompatible materials and exposure to direct sunlight. Never mix directly with accelerators or promoters. Do not return unused product to original container. Incompatible Materials: Acids, alkalis, reducing agents, oxidising agents, rust, transition metals and their compounds (such as iron, copper, brass, bronze, cobalt, nickel, lead), resins, promoters, accelerators and combustible materials. Hazardous Decomposition Products: If involved in a fire, toxic materials such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, isocyanate vapour, traces of hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride gas, hydrogen fluoride gas and various chlorine and fluorine compounds and hydrocarbons may form. Liberates oxygen, which will support combustion. Liberates heat. Hazardous Reactions: See Incompatible Materials.
