First-aid measures

- Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately.
- Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention immediately.
- Skin contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
- Eye contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

- Extinguishing media: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
- Special exposure hazards: No specific hazard. This material is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Fire water contaminated with this
material must be contained and prevented from being discharged to any waterway, sewer or drain.
See section toxicological information of MSDS for more detailed information on health effects and symptoms.
-Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

-Personal precautions: Immediately contact emergency personnel. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Use suitable protective equipment.
-Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers.
-Methods for cleaning up: If emergency personnel are unavailable, contain spilled material. For small spills, add absorbent (soil may be used in the absence of other suitable materials), scoop up material and place in a sealable, liquid-proof container for disposal. For large
spills, dike spilled material or otherwise contain material to ensure runoff does not reach a waterway. Place spilled material in an appropriate container for disposal.

Handling and storage

- Handling: Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid contact of spilled material and runoff with soil and surface waterways.
Avoid exposure. Use suitable protective equipment (section Exposure controls/ personal protection). Avoid generation of dust.
- Storage: Keep container tightly closed. Keep container in a well-ventilated area.
- Packagagin materials Recommended: Use original container
