First-aid measures

Skin contact:             Remove all contaminated clothes and footwear immediately unless stuck to skin. Drench the affected skin with running water for                                     10 minutes or longer if substance is still on skin. Transfer to hospital if there are burns or symptoms of poisoning.

Eye contact:              Bathe the eye with running water for 15 minutes. Transfer to hospital for specialist examination.

Ingestion:                  Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Give 1 cup of water to drink every 10 minutes. If unconscious, check for

                                   breathing and apply artificial respiration if necessary. If unconscious and breathing is OK, place in the recovery position. Transfer to                                    hospital as soon as possible.

Inhalation:                Remove casualty from exposure ensuring one's own safety whilst doing so. If unconscious and breathing is OK, place in the                                             recovery position. If conscious, ensure the casualty sits or lies down. If breathing becomes bubbly, have the casualty sit and

                                 provide oxygen if available. Transfer to hospital as soon as possible.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:              Extinguish with carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam or waterspray. Use water spray to cool containers.

Exposure hazards:                  Corrosive. In combustion emits toxic fumes.

Protection of fire-fighters:    Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear protective clothing to prevent contact with skin

                                                  and eyes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:            Notify the police and fire brigade immediately. If outside keep bystanders upwind and away from danger point. Mark out                                                     the contaminated area with signs and prevent access to unauthorised personnel. Do not attempt to take action without                                                       suitable protective clothing - see section 8 of SDS. Turn leaking containers leak-side up to prevent the escape of liquid.

Environmental precautions:  Do not discharge into drains or rivers. Contain the spillage using bunding.

Clean-up procedures:           Clean-up should be dealt with only by qualified personnel familiar with the specific substance. Absorb into dry earth or                                                     sand. Transfer to a closable, labelled salvage container for disposal by an appropriate method.

Handling and storage

Handling requirements:         Avoid direct contact with the substance. Ensure there is sufficient ventilation of the area. Do not handle in a confined

                                                  space. Avoid the formation or spread of mists in the air.

Storage conditions:                Store in cool, well ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed.
