First-aid measures

General advice:
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.
In case of splashes, remove contaminated clothing and plunge it into water immediately. Risk of ignition.

Dust inhalation: Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. Keep under medical surveillance. In case of problems : Hospitalise.
Skin contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water. If significant contact: Keep under medical surveillance. Hospitalise.
Eye contact: Wash open eyes immediately, abundantly and thoroughly for at least 15 minutes. Consult an ophthalmologist immediately.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. Hospitalise.

Protection of first-aiders: Protective suit

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: At high temperature (decomposition), Formation of Oxygen (in large quantity).
Explosive when mixed with combustible material.

Precautions for fire-fighters: Specific methods:
Cool containers / tanks with water spray. Ensure a system for the rapid emptying of containers. In case of fire nearby, remove exposed containers.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Wear a self contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Remove all sources of ignition. Do not smoke.

Environmental precautions: Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains.
