Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area. Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance.
Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

Inhalation
Potential for exposure by inhalation if aerosols or mists are generated.
Move victims into fresh air.
With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.

Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Hazards
Harmful in contact with skin and if swallowed.Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed.
After accidental absorption in the body, the pathology and clinical findings are dependent on the kinetics of the noxious substance (quantity of absorbed substance, the absorption time, and the effectiveness of early elimination measures (first aid)/ excretion - metabolism).
Continue with first aid measures.
Depending on the pathology and clinical findings, patient monitoring and symptomatic treatment are necessary.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.
