Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate immediately with running water for at least 5
minutes.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash under running water or in a shower.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Recommended extinguishing agents: Water-spray, dry
chemical, carbon dioxide and foam may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: Combustion products will
contain carbon oxides.

Protective equipment: Protective equipment: Wear a respirator, avoid smoke
inhalation.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Contain spillage. Absorb using sand, earth or similar
absorbent material (mix in vigorously to assist
absorption). Collect with a rubber shovel and transfer to
drums or plastic bags for disposal by incineration. Prevent
from flowing into ground water or surface waters.

Handling and storage

Handling: Do not smoke in the work area. Avoid formation of dry
distillation residues (peroxides are formed). Appropriate
safety precautions should be observed for this highly
flammable substance. Wear protective clothing made of
anti-static material.

Storage: Store in suitable containers in a well ventilated area.
Ensure good ventilation to avoid formation of explosive
vapour/air mixtures. Ensure containers are earthed
(grounded); use only spark-proof systems. Protect from
sunlight, explosive peroxides may be formed.
