Following skin contact:

Wipe away excess material with dry towel and then wash affected areas with plenty of water for several minutes.

Get medical attention immediately if irritation occurs.

Following eye contact:

Immediately wash affected eyes for several minutes under running water with eyelids held open.

Get medical attention immediately if irritation occurs.

Following ingestion:

Wash out mouth with water and then drink plenty of water, and summon physician.

Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person.

Notes for the doctor:

Treat symptomatically and supportively. Treatment may vary with condition of victim and specifics of incident.

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

May be harmful by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. May cause eye and skin irritation.

Material is irritating to eyes, mucous membranes and upper respiratory tract.

4.3 Indication of the immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Persons with pre-existing skin, eye, or respiratory disease may be at increased risk from the irritant or allergic properties of this material. Attending physician should treat exposed patients symptomatically.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1 Control parameters

Occupational exposure limit values:

There are no currently occupational exposure limit values for this substance.

8.2 Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls:

Normal ventilation for standard manufacturing procedures is generally adequate.

Local exhaust should be used when large amounts are released.

Mechanical ventilation should be used in low or enclosed places.

Refrigerant concentration monitors may be necessary to determine vapor concentrations in work areas prior to use of torches or other open flames, or if employees are entering enclosed areas.

Personal protective equipment:

Eye and face protection:

Safety goggle is recommended.

Skin protection:

Glove and lab coat is recommended.

Respiratory protection:

Suitable dust mask is recommended where dust arises from use.

Thermal hazards:

Not available.

Environmental exposure controls:

Should not be released into the environment.

Prevent from entering sewers, basements and workpants, or any place where its accumulation can be dangerous.

Consumer exposure controls:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
