Ingestion: Nausea and stomach pain may occur.  There may be vomiting.  There may be mental confusion.  There may be loss of consciousness.  Do not induce vomiting.  If conscious, give half a litre of water to drink immediately.  If unconscious, check for breathing and apply artificial respiration if necessary.  If unconscious and breathing is OK, place in the recovery position.  Transfer to hospital as soon as possible.

Inhalation: There may be shortness of breath with a burning sensation in the throat.  Exposure may cause coughing or wheezing.  There may be congestion of the lungs causing severe shortness of breath.  Drowsiness or mental confusion may occur.  There may be loss of consciousness. Convulsions may occur.  Remove casualty from exposure ensuring one's own safety whilst doing so.  If unconscious, check for breathing and apply artificial respiration if necessary.  If unconscious and breathing is OK, place in the recovery position.  If conscious, ensure the casualty sits or lies down.  If breathing becomes bubbly, have the casualty sit and provide oxygen if available.  Transfer to hospital as soon as possible.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: Water spray.  Carbon dioxide.  Dry chemical powder.  Alcohol or polymer foam.

Exposure hazards: In combustions emits toxic funes of carbon dioxide / carbon monoxide.

Protection of fire fighters:  Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.  Wear protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: Mark out the contaminated area with signs and prevent access to unauthorised personnel.  Turn leaking containers leak-side up to prevent the escape of liquid.

Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains or rivers.  Contain the spillage using bunding.

Clean-up procedures: Absord into dry earth or sand.

Handling and storage

Handling requirements: Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation of the area.  Avoid direct contact with the substance.

Storage conditions: Store in cool, well ventilated area.  Keep container tightly closed.

Suitable packaging: Must only be kept in original packaging.
