Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
Eye contact
Make sure to remove any contact lenses from the eyes before rinsing. Promptly wash eyes with plenty of water while lifting the eye lids.
Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
General information
The severity of the symptoms described will vary dependant of the concentration and the length of exposure.
NOTE! Effects may be delayed. Keep affected person under observation. Dust irritates the respiratory system, and may cause coughing
and difficulties in breathing. May cause nausea, headache, dizziness and intoxication. Frequent inhalation of dust over a long period of
time increases the risk of developing lung diseases.
Metallic taste. May cause stomach pain or vomiting. Diarrhoea. Fumes from the stomach contents may be inhaled resulting in the same
symptoms as inhalation.
Skin contact
Irritating and may cause redness and pain. Discoloration of the skin. The molten product can cause serious burns.
Eye contact
Irritating and may cause redness and pain.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
No recommendation given, but first aid may still be required in case of accidental exposure, inhalation or ingestion of this chemical. If in
