First-aid measures

- General advice: First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended protective clothing.

- Following inhalation: Remove to fresh air.
- Following skin contact: Immediately remove contaminated clothing. Wash thoroughly with warm water using a mild soap.
- Following eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with water and continue washing for at least 15 minutes.
- Following ingestion: Drink water in small sips to dilute the substance. Do not give milk, oily products, fat or alcohol. Give medicinal activated charcoal 10 g in 100 ml water at 20 minute intervals (5 x).

- Most important symptoms and effects: irritant effects, sensitising effects, toxic effects for reproduction.

- Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: Keep under medical supervision for at least 48 hours. The first aid procedure should be established in consultation with the doctor responsible for industrial medicine. For specialist advice physicians should contact the Poisons Information Service.

Fire-fighting measures

> Extinguishing media
- Suitable extinguishing media: Water, Dry powder, ABC powder, Foam, Sand, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

> Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
- Specific hazards during firefighting: Burning produces noxious and toxic fumes.
- Hazardous combustion products: Fire will produce dense black smoke containing hazardous combustion products (see section 10).

> Advice for firefighters
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear a positive-pressure supplied-air respirator with full facepiece.

- Further information: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Accidental release measures

> Personal precautions:
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Provide sufficient ventilation. Avoid dust formation.

> Environmental precautions:
Avoid release to the environment.

> Methods for cleaning up:
Sweep up or vacuum up spillage and collect in suitable container for disposal.

Handling and storage

> Precautions for safe handling
- Advice on safe handling: Avoid dust formation. Avoid inhalation, ingestion and contact with skin and eyes. Wear personal protective equipment. Handle with care.
- Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation.
- Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Regular cleaning of equipment, work area and clothing.

> Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
- Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
