After inhalation:
Remove the victim into fresh air
Respiratory problems: consult a doctor/medical service.
Skin contact:
Wash immediately with lots of water (15 minutes)/shower
Remove clothing while washing
Do not apply (chemical) neutralizing agents
Do not remove clothing if it sticks to the skin
Cover wounds with sterile bandage
Consult a doctor/medical service
If burned surface > 10%: take victim to hospital

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray
Polyvalent foam
Alcohol-resistant foam
Polymer foam
BC powder
Carbon dioxide
Unsuitable extinguishing media:
No unsuitable extinguishing media known
Special exposure hazards:
Temperature above flashpoint: higher fire/explosion hazard
On burning: release of toxic and corrosive gases/vapours (hydrogen chloride, phosgene, carbon monoxide - carbon dioxide)
Cool tanks/drums with water spray/remove them into safety
Dilute toxic gases with water spray
Take account of toxic fire-fighting water
Use water moderately and if possible collect or contain it
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Corrosionproof suit
Large spills/in enclosed spaces: compressed air apparatus
Large spills/in enclosed spaces: gas-tight suit
Heat/fire exposure: compressed air/oxygen apparatus

Accidental release measures

Occupational exposure controls:
Carry operations in the open/under local exhaust/ventilation or with respiratory protection Personal protective equipment:
a) Respiratory protection:
High gas/vapour concentration: gas mask with filter type A
b) Hand protection:
- neoprene
- rubber
- viton
c) Eye protection:
Face shield
d) Skin protection:
Corrosionproof clothing
Environmental precautions:
Contain released substance, pump into suitable containers
Plug the leak, cut off the supply
Dam up the liquid spill
Take account of toxic/corrosive precipitation water
Prevent soil and water pollution
Prevent spreading in sewers
Methods for cleaning up:
Take up liquid spill into absorbent material, e.g.: sand, earth, vermiculite or kieselguhr
Scoop absorbed substance into closing containers
Carefully collect the spill/leftovers
Damaged/cooled tanks must be emptied
Clean contaminated surfaces with an excess of water
Take collected spill to manufacturer/competent authority
Wash clothing and equipment after handling

Handling and storage

Exposure controls / personal protection

Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
Environmental exposure controls:
Avoid discharge into the environment.
According to local regulations, Federal and official regulations.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid:
Possible fire hazard
heat sources
Unstable on exposure to moisture
Unstable on exposure to air
Unstable on exposure to light
Oxidizes slowly on exposure to air
Reacts exothermically with many compounds e.g.: with (some) bases, with (strong) oxidizers and with (strong) reducers
Materials to avoid:
oxidizing agents
reducing agents
(strong) bases
Hazardous decomposition products:
On burning: release of toxic and corrosive gases/vapours (hydrogen chloride, phosgene, carbon monoxide - carbon dioxide)
