First-aid measures

General information
Immediate medical attention is required. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves. Keep victim warm. In case of shortness of breath, give oxygen.
Description of first aid measures
Inhalation
Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim inhaled the substance. Induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device.
Skin contact
In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention immediately.
Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.
Ingestion
If material is ingested, immediately contact a physician or poison control centre. Have victim
rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Never give anything by mouth to a victim who is unconscious or
is having convulsions. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. If vomiting occurs naturally,
have victim lean forward to reduce risk of aspiration.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Corrosive effects. The product causes burns of eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Permanent eye damage including blindness could result.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed. Symptoms may be delayed. If evacuation of stomach contents is necessary, use method least likely to cause aspiration. This material, if aspirated into the lungs, may cause chemical pneumonitis; treat the affected person
appropriately.

Fire-fighting measures

General fire hazards
Fire and explosion hazards are moderate when this product is exposed to heat or flame.

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Small Fires: Dry chemical, CO2, water spray or regular foam.
Large Fires: Water spray, fog or regular 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
Irritating and toxic gases or fumes may be released during a fire. Decomposition of this product may emit oxides of nitrogen and
carbon monoxide.
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus,
protective clothing and face mask.
Special firefighting procedures
Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk. Do not scatter spilled material with high pressure water streams.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel Avoid contact with spilled material. For emergency responders
Keep unnecessary personnel away. Ventilate closed spaces before entering. Do not touch damaged
containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Remove all sources
of ignition. Stay upwind.
Environmental precautions
Not available.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area).
Extinguish all flames in the vicinity. Should not be released into the environment. Prevent entry
into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later
disposal. Move the cylinder to a safe and open area if the leak is irreparable.

Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Move the cylinder to a safe and
open area if the leak is irreparable. Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite, sand or
earth to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal.

Never return spills to original containers for re-use. Clean up in accordance with all applicable
regulations.

Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean contaminated surface
thoroughly. For waste disposal, see section 13.
Reference to other sections
See Section 8 for personal protective equipment. For waste disposal, see section 13.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapour/spray. Do not get this material in your eyes, on your skin, or on your clothing. Wash hands after
handling and before eating. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit. Do not handle or store near an open
flame, heat or other sources of ignition.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store away from strong oxidizers. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep container tightly closed. Store in a closed
container away from incompatible materials. Keep in a well-ventilated place.
