Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Until now no symptoms known so far.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Hints for the physician / hazards

In the case of swallowing with subsequent vomiting, aspiration of the lungs can occur which can lead to chemical pneumonia or asphyxiation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

Dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical extinguisher, Water spray jet

Non suitable extinguishing media

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

In case of combustion evolution of dangerous gases possible. In the event of fire the following can be released: Carbon monoxide (CO); Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for fire-fighting

Do not inhale explosion and/or combustion gases. In case of combustion use a suitable breathing apparatus. Wear full protective suit.

Other information

Collect contaminated fire-fighting water separately, must not be discharged into the drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire-fighting water must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations. Cool

endangered containers with water spray jet.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Keep away sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/aerosol. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Use personal protective clothing. Refer

to protective measures listed in Sections "Handling and Storage" and "Exposure controls/personal protection"

Environmental precautions

Do not discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater. Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil. Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. In case of gas escape or of entry into waterways, soil

or drains, inform the responsible authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Pick up mechanically. Avoid raising dust. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with the regulations.

Reference to other sections

Refer to protective measures listed in Sections "Handling and Storage" and "Exposure controls/personal protection"
