DESCRIPTION OF FIRST AID MEASURES

Eye Contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical advice if there are persistent symptoms.

Skin Contact:
Wash immediately with plenty of water and soap.

Ingestion:
If swallowed, call a physician immediately. Only induce vomiting at the instruction of a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Obtain medical advice if there are persistent symptoms.

MOST IMPORTANT SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS, BOTH ACUTE AND DELAYED
None known

INDICATION OF ANY IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION AND SPECIAL TREATMENT NEEDED

Notes To Physician:
Ethanol is an effective antidote for methanol. Patients with visual abnormalities or a methanol level exceeding 6 to
9 mmol/L (20 to 30 mg/dL) should be treated with the following: the loading dose of ethanol is 10 ml/kg body weight
of 10% ethanol intravenously or 1ml/kg body weight of 95% ethanol by mouth. The maintenance dose is 1.5 ml/kg
body weight per hour of 10% ethanol intravenously and 3.0 ml/kg body weight per hour of 10% ethanol
intravenously during dialysis. Therapy should be continued until the serum methanol level falls below 6 mmol/L (20
mg/dL) and all clinical signs have resolved. Methanol is cleared by hemodialysis.

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Suitable Extinguishing Media:
Use water spray or fog, carbon dioxide or dry chemical.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE
Dust may be explosive if mixed with air in critical proportions and in the presence of a source of ignition.

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS
Protective Equipment:
Firefighters, and others exposed, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear full firefighting protective clothing.
See MSDS Section 8 (Exposure Controls/Personal Protection).

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Where exposure level is not known, wear approved, positive pressure, self-contained respirator. Where exposure level is
known, wear approved respirator suitable for level of exposure. Refer to Section 8 (Exposure Controls/Personal
Protection) for appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental Precautions:
None known

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Sweep up into containers for disposal. Flush spill area with water.

References to other sections:
See Sections 8 and 13 for additional information.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering Measures:
Where this material is not used in a closed system, good enclosure and local exhaust ventilation should be provided
to control exposure.

Respiratory Protection:
Where exposures are below the established exposure limit, no respiratory protection is required.
Where exposures exceed the established exposure limit, use respiratory protection recommended for the material
and level of exposure.

Eye protection:
Wear eye/face protection such as chemical splash proof goggles or face shield.
Eyewash equipment and safety shower should be provided in areas of potential exposure.

Skin Protection:
Avoid skin contact.
Wear impermeable gloves and suitable protective clothing.
Since this product is absorbed through the skin, care must be taken to prevent skin contact and contamination of
clothing.

Hand protection:
Wear impermeable gloves. Replace gloves immediately when torn or any change in appearance (dimension,
colour, flexibility etc) is noticed. Barrier creams may help to protect the exposed areas of the skin, they should
however not be applied once exposure has occurred.

Additional Advice:
Food, beverages, and tobacco products should not be carried, stored, or consumed where this material is in use..
Before eating, drinking, or smoking, wash face and hands thoroughly with soap and water.. It is recommended that
a shower be taken after completion of workshift especially if significant contact has occurred.. Work clothing should
then be laundered prior to reuse.. Street clothing should be stored separately from work clothing and protective
equipment.. Work clothing and shoes should not be taken home.
