Description of first aid measures

Eye contact Holding the eyelids apart, flush eyes promptly with copious flowing water for at

least 20 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin contact Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and plenty of

water for at least 15 minutes. Wash clothing before reuse. Get medical attention if

irritation occurs.

Inhalation In case of dust inhalation or breathing fumes released from heated material,

remove person to fresh air. Keep him quiet and warm. Apply artificial respiration if

necessary and get medical attention immediately.

Ingestion If swallowed, wash mouth thoroughly with plenty of water. Get medical attention



NOTE: Never give an unconscious person anything to drink

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media Material is not combustible. Use extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding

fire conditions.

Special hazards arising from

the substance or mixture

When heated to decomposition, may release poisonous and corrosive fumes of

CO, CO2 and HBr.

Advice for fire-fighters Cool containers with water spray. In closed stores, provide fire-fighters with

self-contained breathing apparatus in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures
