4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYES
Contact lenses should be removed. Irrigate copiously with clean fresh water for at least 10 minutes, holding the eyelids apart and seek medical advice.
SKIN
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water or use a   prorietary skin cleaner. Do NOT use solvents or thinners. Obtain medical attention if irritation persists.
INGESTION
Wash out mouth with water. Obtain medical attention urgently. Keep at rest. Do not induce vomiting.
INHALATION
Remove patient to fresh air. Keep the patient warm and at rest. If respiration stops or shows signs of failing, administer artificial respiration. Obtain medical aid urgently.
OTHER
In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical, sand or earth for small fires. For large fires use alcohol type foam or water spray. Do not use water jets. Cool closed containers with water spray.
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
As the product contains combustible organic components, fire will produce dense black smoke containing hazardous products of combustion.
Decomposition products may be hazardous to health. Do NOT allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or watercourses.
PROTECTIVE MEASURES
Appropriate self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
Exclude sources of ignition and ventilate area. Exclude all non-essential personnel. Refer to
protective measures listed in Sections 7 and 8.
ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Do NOT allow to enter drains or watercourses. If the product enters drains or sewers, the local water company should
be informed immediately. In the case of contamination of streams, rivers or lakes, inform the National Rivers Authority. Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible absorbentmaterials, (e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth), keep moist and place in a suitable unsealed container (evolution of CO2 ! ) for several days in a well ventilated area.
Dispose of in accordance with the waste regulations (See section 13). Clean the spill area preferably with a detergent. Avoid the use of solvents.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
STORAGE
Observe label precautions. Store between 5 and 25 degrees C in a dry, well ventilated place away from sources of heat, ignition and direct sunlight. No smoking. Prevent unauthorised access.
Containers which are opened should be properly sealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Always keep in containers made of the same material as the supply container. Store separately from oxidising agents and strongly alkaline and/or acidic materials.
GENERAL
Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Good housekeeping standards and regular safe removal of waste materials will minimise risk of spontaneous combustion and other fire hazards.
HANDLING
Keep the container tightly closed. Exclude all sources of heat, sparks and open flame.  Avoid skin and eye contact. Avoid inhalation of vapour/spray.
For personal protection see Section 8. Prevent the creation of flammable concentrations of vapour in air.
The accumulation of contaminated rags may result in spontaneous combustion.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
ENGINEERING MEASURES
Provide adequate ventilation. Where reasonably practicable this should be achieved by the use of local exhaust ventilation and good general extraction.
All PPE, including RPE, used to control exposure to hazardous substances must be selected to meet the requirements of the COSHH Regulations.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Avoid inhaling vapour. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear impervious gloves and/or solvent resistant barrier cream. Wear goggles and dust/vapour mask especially when spraying. Ensure good ventilation.
RESPIRATORY
Suitable respiratory protective equipment should be worn when this product is sprayed if ventilation is insufficient.
HAND
When skin exposure may occur, advice should be sought from glove suppliers on appropriate types. barrier creams may help to protect exposed areas of skin but are not substitutes for full physical protection. Do not apply barrier cream once exposed.
EYE
Eye protection designed to protect against liquid splashes should be worn.
OTHER
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.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS
In a fire, hazardous decomposition products such as smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oxides of nitrogen may be produced.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
GENERAL
Exposure to organic solvent vapours may result in adverse health effects such as irritation of the mucous membrane and the respiratory system.
Symptoms include : headache, dizziness, fatigue, muscular weakness, and drowsiness.
Repeated or prolonged contact with the product may lead to removal of natural fats from the skin resulting in non-allergic contact dermatitis and absorption through the skin. Splashes in the eyes may cause irritation and reversible local damage.
Repeated exposure can cause skin dryness and cracking

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
GENERAL
The product should not be allowed to enter drains or watercourses or be deposited where it can affect ground or surface waters.
It can be expected to be readily biodegradable.
Slightly toxic to aquatic organisms, but in most systems is unlikely to persist for sufficient time to pose a significant hazard

13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
DISPOSAL DANGERS
Wear appropriate protective clothing. Care should be taken to avoid accidental mixing with oxidising agents. A potential toxic and explosive hazard will be created if the spilt liquid enters surface drains.
DISPOSAL METHODS
Transfer any hazardous waste into suitable containers for subsequent disposal. Dispose of any hazardous waste in accordance with waste disposal or water authority regulations. Do not dump indiscriminately.
GENERAL
Do not allow to enter drains or watercourses or dispose of where ground or surface waters may be affected.
Dispose of waste and other residues in accordance with local authority requirements. Contact specialist disposal companies.
