Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Keep victim under observation. Symptoms may be delayed.

Fire-fighting measures

General fire hazards
No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

Suitable extinguishing media
Water fog. Dry chemical powder. Carbon dioxide (CO2).
Large Fires: Extinguish with water fog.

Unsuitable extinguishing media
Do not use water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
In the event of fire the following can be released: Sulphur Oxides (SOx). Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). Hydrogen cyanide (hydrocyanic acid) (HCN). Carbon oxides (COx)

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters : Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.
Special fire fighting procedures : Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk.
Specific methods : Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved materials.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel :
Keep unnecessary personnel away. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ensure adequate ventilation. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.
For emergency responders :
Keep unnecessary personnel away. Use personal protection recommended.

Environmental precautions
Avoid release to the environment. Inform appropriate managerial or supervisory personnel of all environmental releases. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Prevent product from entering drains. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas.
Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers. Following product recovery, flush area with water.
Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.
Never return spills to original containers for re-use.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Provide adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Avoid release to the environment. Observe good industrial hygiene practices.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in tightly closed original container in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
