First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
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 if the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact:
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water.
Continue decontamination with polyethylene glycol 400 after initial rinsing with water and then wash with water and soap.
If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact:
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.

Ingestion:
Rinse out mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Consult a physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:

Symptoms:
daze, headache, dizziness, somnolence (drowsiness), nausea.
May cause lung damage if swallowed.
Health injuries may be 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

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water, mist, dry powder, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Danger of decomposition under influence of heat.
Hazard-determining flue gases might develop in case of fire:
Hydro-cyanic acid, Carbon monoxide.
Risk determining decomposition products: Allylamine.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Full protective suit.

Advice for firefighters:
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
In case of fire cool containers or take them to a safe place.
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
Keep out unprotected persons.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Keep unauthorized persons away.
