SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation: Move victim to fresh air. Call emergency medical service. Give artificial respiration if victim is not breathing.
Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat symptomatically and
supportively. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to
protect themselves.
Skin contact: Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately
flush skin with running water for at least 20 minutes. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that
medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Eye contact: Move victim to fresh air. Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact with substance,
immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 20 minutes. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat
symptomatically and supportively. Effects of exposure to substance may be delayed. Ensure that medical
personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Ingestion: If a person vomits place them in the recovery position so that vomit will not reenter the mouth and throat.
Rinse mouth. Keep victim warm and quiet. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If
swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or label. Treat symptomatically and
supportively. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to
protect themselves. Effects of exposure (ingestion) to substance may be delayed.
Symptoms/effects:
Acute: No data available
Delayed: No data available
Immediate medical attention: If breathing has stopped, perform artificial respiration. Use first aid treatment according to the nature of the
injury. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect
themselves.


SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry chemical, CO2 , water spray, or alcohol-resistant foam. Consult with local fire authorities before
attempting large scale fire fighting operations.

Special precautions for fire-fighters:
Not available
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Structural fire fighters' protective clothing provides limited protection in fire situations ONLY; it may not be effective in spill situations.


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions: Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing
(Section 8).
Personal protective equipment: Wear protective clothing, gloves and eye protection.
Emergency procedures: In case of a spill and/or a leak, always shut off any sources of ignition, ventilate the area, and excercise
caution.

Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal.
Environmental precautions:
Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas.


SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for safe handling: Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Normal measures for preventive
fire protection. Follow safe industrial hygiene practices and always wear proper protective equipment when
handling this compound.
