First-aid measures

General: Wash clothing before reuse.

Eye contact: Wash with plenty of water.

Skin contact: Wash with plenty of water.

Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide

Exposure hazards: None known

Combustion products: None known

Protective equipment: Firefighters, and others exposed, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Equipment should be thoroughly decontaminated after use.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use personal protection recommended in section 8 of the Safety Data Sheet.

Environmental precautions: Keep out of drains and water courses.

Methods for cleaning up: Contain large spills with dikes and transfer the material to appropriate containers for reclamation or
disposal. Absorb remaining material or small spills with an inert material and then place in a chemical waste container. Flush spill area with water.

Handling and storage

Handling: Good industrial practice in housekeeping and personal hygiene should be followed. Avoid breathing vapour or mist.

Engineering measures: Provide natural or mechanical ventilation to control exposure levels below airborne exposure limits. If practical, use local mechanical exhaust ventilation at sources of air contamination such as processing equipment.

Storage: Stable under normal conditions of handling and storage.
