4.1 Description of first aid measures
Inhalation: In case of inhalation of spray mist: Move person into fresh air and keep at rest. For breathing difficulties, oxygen may be necessary. Consult a physician for specific advice. Persons who have inhaled vapours or smoke fumes have to be put under medical observation for at least 48 hours, due to the delayed appearance of poisoning.

Eye contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Skin contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. If skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction develops, get medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Destroy or thoroughly clean contaminated shoes.

Ingestion: If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Call a physician or poison control center immediately. Do not induce vomiting without advice from poison control center. Never give liquid to an unconscious person. Provide fresh air, warmth and rest, preferably in comfortable upright sitting position. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If vomiting occurs, keep head low so that stomach content doesn't get into the lungs.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards: Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. Keep upwind. In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

5.1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, dry powder or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Avoid water in straight hose stream; will scatter and spread fire.

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: May ignite at high temperature. During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed. Risk of chemical pneumonia after aspiration. Hazardous Combustion Products : carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide .

5.3 Advice for firefighters
Special fire fighting procedures: In case of fire: Evacuate area. Move container from fire area if it can be done without risk. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Prevent runoff from fire control or dilution from entering streams, sewers, or drinking water supply. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Keep unauthorized personnel away. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Avoid inhalation of vapors and spray mists. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Caution: Contaminated surfaces may be slippery. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Reference to other sections See Section 8 of the SDS for Personal Protective Equipment.

6.2 Environmental Precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Clear up spills immediately and dispose of waste safely. Prevent spillage entering a watercourse or sewer, contaminating soil or vegetation. If this is not possible notify police and appropriate authorities immediately.

6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Small Liquid Spills: Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite, sand or earth to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal. Large Spillages: Dike for later disposal. Collect spillage in containers, seal securely and deliver for disposal according to local regulations. Otherwise, absorb spill with vermiculite or other inert material, then place in a container for chemical waste. Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination. Prevent runoff from entering drains, sewers, or streams.

Notification Procedures: In the event of a spill or accidental release, notify relevant authorities in accordance with all applicable regulations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls: Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

General information: An eye wash bottle must be available at the work site. Provide access to washing facilities including soap, skin cleanser and fatty cream.

Eye/face protection: Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts. Recommendations: Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). Use safety goggles and face shield in case of splash risk.

Skin protection
Hand Protection: If prolonged or repeated contact is likely, chemical resistant gloves are recommended. If contact with forearms is likely, wear gauntlet style gloves. Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves.
