- If irritation persists, consult a doctor. Show this sheet to the doctor.
- Never attempt to induce vomiting. Do not give anything to drink but rinse mouth thoroughly with water.
- Ensure adequate ventilation of the working area.
- Respiratory protection with a particle filter if dust from solid is present.
- Appropriate gloves.
- Goggles.
- Protective clothing.
- Use appropriate protective equipment when treating a contaminated person.
- Place contaminated clothing in a sealed bag for disposal.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable: use extinguishing media suitable to surrounding fire conditions.
- Not suitable: None. If there is a fire close by, use suitable extinguishing agents.
- Burning can produce irritating toxic and obnoxious fumes.
- Use water spray to cool containers.

Accidental release measures

- Ensure adequate ventilation of the working area.
- Personal protective equipment:
- Safety spectacles
- Goggles
- Suitable protective clothing
- Appropriate gloves
- Do not allow product to enter drains. Prevent further spillage if safe.
- Recovery
- For solid matter: Collect up the product and place it in a spare container, suitably labelled.
- For liquid matter: absorb with inert, absorbent material. Sweep up. Transfer to suitably labelled container for disposal.
- Cleaning/Decontamination: Clean spillage area thoroughly with lime and flush to drain with plenty of water, observing any local regulations.

Stability and reactivity

- Reactivity: No additional information available
- Chemical stability: Stable at ambient temperature and under normal conditions of use.
- Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous polymerization will not occur.
- Conditions to avoid: Do not store with incompatible materials. Extremely high or low temperatures.
- Incompatible materials: Bases. May be corrosive to metals.
- Hazardous decomposition products: Fume. Carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide.

Disposal considerations

- Waste treatment methods: Disposal should be carried out with lime under controlled conditions at a licensed waste processor.
- Waste disposal recommendations: Dispose in a safe manner in accordance with local/national regulations.
- Ecology - waste materials: Avoid release to the environment.
