First-aid measures

General advice:
Under the shower: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. including shoes.

Inhalation:
Inhalation of mists Move patient from contaminated area to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. Keep under medical surveillance. In case of problems : Hospitalise.

Skin contact:
Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. Consult a physician. In case of extensive burns, hospitalize.

Eye contact:
Wash open eyes immediately, abundantly and thoroughly for at least 15 minutes. Consult an ophthalmologist immediately.

Ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting, rinse mouth and lips with plenty of water if the subject is conscious, then hospitalize.

Protection of first-aiders:If entering a saturated atmosphere, wear a self contained breathing apparatus. Protective suit

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Special foam for polar solvents
Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Flammable liquid, Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Possible re-ignition of vapours from a distance.
Warm impregnated insulating material can, with time, ignite spontaneously. Thermal decomposition giving flammable and toxic products :, Carbon oxides (by combustion), Organic vapours

Precautions for fire-fighters: Specific methods:
Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Ensure containers can be rapidly moved. In case of fire nearby, remove exposed containers.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Complete suit protecting against chemicals

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Use personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours.

Environmental precautions:
Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials). Should not be released into the environment. Do not let product enter drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Recovery: Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank. Moist product : absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material.
Elimination: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).
