3 : Hazard identification
Most important hazards :
Irritating to eyes, respiratory system, and skin.
Keep out of the reach of children.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No Smoking.
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Wear suitable clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.
4 : First-aid measures
Remove contaminated soaked clothing and wash before reuse.
After eye contact :
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
After skin contact :
After contact with skin, wash immediately affected area with soap and plenty of water.
After inhalation :
If inhaled, remove person to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
After ingestion :
If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Obtain medical advice.
5 : Fire-fighting measures
Extinguishing media :
Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder or appropriate foam. For safety reasons do not use full water jet.
Special firefighting procedures :
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
Unusual fire and explosion hazards :
Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.
6 : Accidental release measures
Wear respirator, chemical safety goggles, rubber boots and heavy rubber gloves. Keep people away, evacuate area.
To avoid possible contamination of the environment, Do not discharge into any drains, surface waters or groundwaters.
Cover with an inert, inorganic, non-combustible absorbent material (e.g. dry-lime, sand, soda ash). Place in covered containers using non-sparking tools and transport outdoors.
Avoid open flames or sources of ignition (e.g. pilot lights on gas hot water heater). Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete. Dispose of in accordance with current laws and regulations.
7 : Handling and storage
Measures should be taken to prevent materials from being splashed into the eyes or on the skin. Wear eyeshields and protective clothing. Smoking should not be permitted in work areas.
Provide suitable air extraction ventilation in the work areas. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Keep material away from sources of ignition (e.g. hot surfaces, sparks, flame and static discharges.
To be stored in tightly sealed and preferably full containers in cool, dry and ventilated area. Protect from heat/overheating and light sources.
Keep in glass, suitable plastic, aluminum or laquer-lined containers.
