First-aid measures

General advice : Immediate medical attention is required. Move out of dangerous area. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.
Burns may occur several hours after the removal of the product. Inhalation : Obtain medical attention immediately. If breathed in, move person into fresh air. Skin contact : Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash skin immediately with 0,5 % acetic acid in water, and
then with soap and water. Carefully remove paste or solidified product. Immediate medical treatment is necessary as untreated wounds from corrosion of the skin heal slowly and with difficulty. Skin irritation, if untreated may be prolonged and serious (eg necrosis). This may be prevented by early treatment with medium strength corticosteroids. Eye contact : In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with 0.5% acetic acid in water for a few minutes, followed by rinsing with plenty of water for as long as possible. Eyelids should be held away from the eyeball to ensure thorough rinsing.
Get medical attention immediately. Continue to rinse during transport. Remove contact lenses. Protect unharmed eye. Small amounts splashed into eyes can cause irreversible tissue damage and blindness. Ingestion : Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Take victim immediately to hospital. Do not induce vomiting! May cause chemical burns in mouth
and throat.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media : High volume water jet Specific hazards during fire fighting : Treat as oil fire. Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire. Water spray may be ineffective unless used by experienced firefighters. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Special protective equipment for fire-fighters : In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Further information : Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
