3. Hazards identification
Toxic by inhalation. Danger of cumulative effects. Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.

4. First aid measures

First-aid personnel: ensure self-protection!
After inhalation: fresh air. If necessary, apply mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or mechanical ventilation. Immediately call in physician.
After skin contact: wash off with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing.
After eye contact: rinse out with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes with the eyelid held wide open. Immediately call in ophthalmologist.
After swallowing: if victim is still conscious, make him drink plenty of water, induce vomiting, and administer activated charcoal (20-40 g in 10% slurry). Immediately call in physician.

5. Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
In adaptation to materials stored in the immediate neighbors hood.
Special risks:
Non-combustible. Vapors heavier than air. Ambient fire may liberate hazardous vapors. The following may developed in event of fire: mercury vapors.
Special protective equipment for fire fighting:
Do not stay in dangerous zone without self-contained breathing apparatus. In order to avoid contact with skin, keep a safety distance and wear suitable protective clothing.
Other information:
Prevent fire-fighting water from entering surface water or groundwater.

6. Accidental release measures

Person-related precautionary measures:
Do not inhale vapors/aerosols. Avoid substance contact. Ensure supply of fresh air in enclosed rooms.
Environmental-protection measures:
Do not allow to enter sewerage system.
Procedures for cleaning / absorption:
Take up with suitable equipment. Forward for disposal. Clean up affected area.

7. Handling and storage

Handling:
Notes for safe handling:
Work under hood. Do not inhale substance: Avoid generation of vapors/aerosols.
Storage:
Tightly closed in a well ventilated place. Accessible only for authorized persons, store temperature: no restrictions.

8. Exposure controls/personal protection

Personal protective equipment:
Protective clothing should be selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration and quantity of the hazardous substance handle. The resistance of the protective clothing to chemical should be ascertained with the respective supplier.
Respiratory protection: Required. Combination filters Hg-P3.
Eye protection: Required
Hand protection: In full contact:
Glove material: nitrile rubber
Layer thickness: 0.11 mm
Breakthrough time: >480 Min.
In plash contact:
Glove material: nitrile rubber
Layer thickness: 0.11 mm
Breakthrough time: >480 Min.
The protective gloves to be use must comply with the specifications of EC 89/686/EEC and result standard EN374, for example KCL 740 Dermatril® (full contact), 740 Dermatril® (splash contact). The breakthrough times stated above were determined by KCL in laboratory tests acc. to EN374 with simples of the recommended.
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet and supplied by us as well as to the purpose specified by conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GMBH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet: www.kcl.de)
Industrial hygiene:
Immediately change contaminate clothing. Apply skin-protective barrier cream. Wash hands and face alter working substance. Works under hood. Do not inhale substance, under no circumstances eat or drink at workplace.

11. Toxicological information

Acute toxicity
Quantitative data on the toxicity of this product are not available.
Further toxicological information
Mercury compounds have a cyto toxic and proto-plasma toxic effect. Intoxication symptoms: acute contact with eye causes severe lesions. Swallowing and inhalation of dusts damages mucous membranes of gastrointestinal and respiratory tract (metallic taste, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, blood pressure, cardiac dysrhythmia, circulatory collapse, and renal failure; manifest themes vest in the CNS (impaired speech, vision, hearing, and sensitivity, loss of memory irritability, hallucinations, delirium inter alias).
Further data
The product should be handled with the care usual when dealing with chemicals.
