FIRST AID MEASURES
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If
not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs,
provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Get
medical attention if symptoms occur. If unconscious, place in
recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain
an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire,
symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be
kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.
Ingestion:
Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air.
Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and
the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to
drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be
dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by
medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low
so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention if
symptoms occur. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical
attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight
clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Skin Contact:
Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated
clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
Eye Contact.
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the
upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses.
Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if
irritation occurs.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure limit values : Not available.

Recommended monitoring procederes:
If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal,
workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to
determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control
measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective
equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN
689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to
chemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for
the determination of hazardous substances.
Risk management measures
Occupational exposure controls
Technical measures:
Use only with adequate ventilation. If user operations generate dust,
fumes, gas, vapour or mist, use process enclosures, local exhaust
ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to
airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits.
