First-aid measures

Eye Contact: Flush eyes thoroughly with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses after the
initial 1-2 minutes and continue flushing for several additional minutes. If effects occur, consult a
physician, preferably an ophthalmologist.
Skin Contact: Wash skin with plenty of water.
Inhalation: Move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician.
Ingestion: If swallowed, seek medical attention. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by
medical personnel.
Notes to Physician: No specific antidote. Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of
symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Water fog or fine spray. Dry chemical fire extinguishers. Carbon dioxide fire
extinguishers. Foam. Do not use direct water stream. May spread fire. Alcohol resistant foams (ATC
type) are preferred. General purpose synthetic foams (including AFFF) or protein foams may function,
but will be less effective.
Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry. Do not use
direct water stream. May spread fire. Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect
personnel and minimize property damage. Contain fire water run-off if possible. Fire water run-off, if
not contained, may cause environmental damage.
Special Protective Equipment for Firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers,
boots, and gloves). If protective equipment is not available or not used, fight fire from a protected
location or safe distance.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Violent steam generation or eruption may occur upon
application of direct water stream to hot liquids.
Hazardous Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition
to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating. Combustion
products may include and are not limited to: Carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide.

Accidental release measures

Steps to be Taken if Material is Released or Spilled: See Section 13, Disposal Considerations, for
additional information. Contain spilled material if possible. Absorb with materials such as: Sand.
Sawdust. Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers.
Personal Precautions: Use appropriate safety equipment. For additional information, refer to Section
8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection.
Environmental Precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or
groundwater.
