Prevent contamination of water and soil.

Do not allow product to enter the sewerage system.

Cleaning/collection procedure:

Collect using a fluid-binding material (chemicals or oil binders) and dispose of in accordance with the

local regulations (special waste).

Chemically detoxify any minor quantities of residue using 5% potassium permanganate solution or diluted

Chlorine bleaching solution (1 part to 3 parts water).

Detoxification agents are oxidation agents and must never be used dry or undiluted, or mixed together

with other detoxification agents.

7.

Primary irritant effect:

No data is available for tetraethyl lead, but in view of the strong toxic effect of the product via resorption,

the possible irritant effect is only of secondary importance. 1,2 dibromoethane can be described as extreme

irritants to the skin, eyes and respiratory organs, in both liquid and vapour form.

Observed effect on humans:

Intoxication may lead to insomnia, weight loss and psychological symptoms (nightmares, euphoria).

12.

DETAILS OF ECOLOGY

Elimination data (persistence and degradability):

Degradability:

Tetraethyl lead in vapour form is unstable and decomposes relatively quickly particularly under the

influence of (UV) light (half-life 2 – 8 hours).

Mobility and bio-accumulation potential:

Heavier than water, sinks to the ground.

Is adsorbed by the soil and is not mobile.

Bio-accumulation is possible, particularly in the form of inorganic lead (reversible).

General notes:

Water hazard category 3; highly hazardous to water.

13.

DISPOSAL INSTRUCTIONS

Disposal of residue / waste disposal:

Return to TDS for recycling within the context of service agreements.

Pass to an authorized waste disposal company.

Disposal of containers:

Empty containers completely.

Chemically detoxify the residue / wall adhesions.

Do not perforate, cut or weld any containers which have not been cleaned.

Other instructions:

TDS performs cleaning of antiknock mixture storage tanks within the context of service agreements.
