glasses of water. Do not induce vomiting or give anything by
mouth to an unconscious person. Immediately transport to a
medical care facility and see a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use water, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam, or Halon.

Product arising from burning: May emit toxic chloride fumes when heated to decomposition.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Fire-fighters should wear full protective clothing and a
self contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Contain dry material by sweeping or vacuuming. Vacuuming may
disperse dust if appropriate dust collection filter is not
part of the vacuum. Be aware of potential dust explosion
when using electrical equipment. Wear protective equipment,
including eye protection, to avoid exposure.
