First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:

General information: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. After inhalation: Upon inhalation of aerosol/vapour/dust: Take the patient into the fresh air; if there is difficulty in breathing, medical advice is required. After contact with skin: Remove all contaminated clothing immediately. Cleansing with plenty of water,

soap or other non-irritating cleansing agents. If skin reactions occur, contact a physician. After contact with eyes: Contamination of the eyes must be treated by thorough irrigation with water, with the eyelids held open. Eventually a doctor (or eye specialist) should be consulted. After ingestion: If the product is swallowed, the patient must at once drink water repeatedly, if possible with the addition of activated carbon. If the patient feels unwell, seek medical advice.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:

Please see hazard statements if given and information if stated.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:

Please see precautionary statements as well as first aid information if stated.
