InhalationRemove victim to fresh air. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
 
IngestionRinse mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. Seek medical advice.
 
SkinIf skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. If irritation persists see a doctor.
 
Eye contactIf material is splashed into eyes, flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, ensuring eye lids are held open. URGENTLY transport to hospital or doctor.
 
First Aid FacilitiesEye wash fountain, safety shower and normal wash room facilities.
 
Advice to DoctorProduct is a solution of quaternary ammonium compound. Vomiting has not been induced because of risk of aspiration into the lungs. Treat symptomatically. Contact Poisons Information Centre.

 6. Accidental release measures

 
Emergency ProceduresM
 
Spills & DisposalDisposal of small spillages only. For large spillages liquids should be contained using sand or earth, and both liquids and solids then transferred to salvage containers. Residues should be treated as for small spillages. CAUTION: Before dealing with spillage take necessary protective measures, inform others to keep at a safe distance and, for flammable materials, shut off all possible sources of ignition. CARE! Spillages will be slippery. If local regulations permit, mop up with plenty of water and run to waste, diluting greatly with running water. Otherwise absorb on inert absorbent, transfer to container and arrange removal by disposals company.
Wash site of spillage thoroughly with water. Ventilate area to dispel any residual vapours.
 

 7. Handling and storage

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingM
 
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilitiesStore in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from sources of heat or ignition, alkalis, combustibles and oxidizing agents. All equipment must be earthed. Store in original packages as approved by manufacturer. Check all fittings, valves, reticulation (piping) and any ancillary equipment for leaks. A supplied air respirator or a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) for emergencies should be available and checked regularly. For further information please refer to the Engineering Controls of this MSDS.
 
Storage RegulationsM
 

 8. Exposure controls/personal protection

 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Other Exposure InformationNo value assigned by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (Worksafe Australia).
 
Appropriate engineering controlsCorrosive liquid. Single significant exposure may cause severe injury or even death. Maintain adequate ventilation at all times. Prevent accumulation of vapours in hollows or sumps. Eliminate any sources of ignition. Exposure to this material may be controlled in a number of ways. The measures appropriate for a particular worksite depend on how the material is used and on the potential for exposure. Engineering methods to prevent or control exposure are preferred. Methods include process or personnel enclosure, mechanical ventilation (dilution and local exhaust), and control of process conditions. If engineering controls and work practices are not effective in preventing or controlling exposure, then suitable personal protective equipment, which is known to perform satisfactorily, should be used.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid contact with the skin and eyes. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
Chemical goggles or faceshield to protect eyes.
Gloves, PVC or nitrile
Respirators in accordance with AS/NZS 1715/1716. The use of a P1 dust mask (disposable) or with replaceable filters is recommended. Filter capacity and respirator type depends on exposure levels and type of contaminant. If entering spaces where the airborne concentration of a contaminant is unknown then the use of a Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with positive pressure air supply complying with AS/NZS 1715 / 1716, or any other acceptable International Standard is recommended.
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using this product. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
