Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.If inhaled
If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.In case of skin contact
Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a physician.In case of eye contact
Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.If swallowed
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed
SYMPTOMS: Vapors cause irritation to eyes and mucous membranes as well as headache, respiratory distress, and loss of consciousness. Ingestion has similar effects plus nausea and vomiting. Contact with the skin may cause severe dermatitis. ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: This compound and its vapors are irritating to the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. It may be corrosive and can be absorbed by the skin. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes.4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary
no data available5.Fire-fighting measures 5.1 Extinguishing media Suitable extinguishing media
Fires involving this compound can be controlled using a dry chemical, carbon dioxide or Halon extinguisher.5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical
This compound is combustible.5.3 Special protective actions for fire-fighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.6.Accidental release measures 6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapours, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust. For personal protection see section 8.6.2 Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Discharge into the environment must be avoided.6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Pick up and arrange disposal. Sweep up and shovel. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.7.Handling and storage 7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.
