FIRST AID MEASURES
In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Remove to fresh air, keep the patient warm and at rest. If breathing has stopped, administer artificial respiration. Give nothing by mouth. If unconscious, place in the recover position and seek medical advice.
Contact lenses should be removed. Irrigate copiously with clean, fresh water for at least 10 minutes, holding eyelids apart and seek medical advice.
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water or use a proprietary skin cleaner.
DO NOT USE SOLVENTS OR THINNERS.
If accidentally swallowed obtain immediate medical attention. Keep at rest. Do NOT induce vomiting.
FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
NOT TO BE USED:
Fire will produce dense black smoke containing hazardous products of combustion (see Section 10). Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health. Appropriate self-contained breathing apparatus may be required. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or watercourses.
ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Exclude sources of ignition and ventilate the area. Exclude non-essential personnel. Avoid breathing vapours. Refer to protective measures listed in Sections 7 and 8. Contain and collect spillages with non-combustible absorbent materials, e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth and place in a suitable container for disposal in accordance with the waste regulations (see Section 13). Do not allow to enter drains or watercourses. Clean preferably with a detergent and avoid the use of solvents.
If the product enters drains or sewers the local Water Company should be contacted immediately; in case of contamination of streams, rivers or lakes, the relevant environment agency.
HANDLING AND STORAGE
Prevent air-borne concentrations higher than the workplace exposure limits.
Keep the container tightly closed. Exclude sources of heat, sparks and open flame.
Avoid skin and eye contact. Avoid inhalation of vapour and spray mist.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in areas of storage and use.
For Occupational Exposure Controls see Section 8.
Never use pressure to empty: The container is not a pressure vessel.
Always keep in containers made of the same material as the supply container.
Good housekeeping standards including the regular safe removal of waste materials and regular maintenance of spray booth filters will minimise fire hazards.
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations may apply to the handling of containers of the product.
Refer to the guide weight indicated on the container when carrying out assessments.
Observe the label precautions. Store between 5 and 25ºC in a dry, well-ventilated place, away from sources of heat, ignition and direct sunlight. No smoking. Prevent unauthorised access. Containers that are opened should be properly resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Store separately from oxidising agents and strongly alkaline and strongly acidic materials.

EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
(see Section 2).
Provide adequate ventilation. Where reasonably practicable this should be achieved by the use of local exhaust ventilation and good general extraction. If these are not sufficient to maintain concentrations of particulates and/or solvent vapours below the relevant workplace exposure limits, suitable respiratory protective equipment should be worn (see Personal Protection below).
All personal protective equipment, including respiratory protective equipment, used to control exposure to hazardous substances must be selected to meet the requirements of the COSHH Regulations.
Suitable respiratory protective equipment should be worn when this product is sprayed if the exposure of the sprayer or other people nearby cannot be controlled to below the workplace exposure limit and engineering controls and methods cannot reasonably be improved.
When skin exposure may occur, advice should be sought from glove suppliers on appropriate types and usage times for this product. The instructions and information provided by the glove supplier on use, storage, maintenance and replacement must be followed. Barrier creams may help to protect exposed areas of the skin, but are not substitutes for full physical protection. They should not be applied once exposure has occurred.
Eye protection designed to protect against liquid splashes should be worn.
Cotton or cotton/synthetic overalls or coveralls are normally suitable. Grossly contaminated clothing should be removed and the skin washed with soap and water or a proprietary skin cleaner.
Regular skin inspection of users of this product is recommended.
ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE EATING, SMOKING OR USING THE TOILET.
