First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove from exposure, lie down. Move to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Obtain medical attention.
Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
Skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.
Ingestion: Drink plenty of water. Treat symptomatically. If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show this container or label. Do not induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide (CO2), water spray, dry chemical, alcohol-resistant foam.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: High volume water jet.
Specific methods: Combustible material. Cool containers/tanks with water spray. Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Prevent product from entering drains.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
Environmental precautions: Remove immediately adhering matter. Prevent product from entering drains. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods for cleaning up: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. dry sand or earth), then place in a chemical waste container.
