Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:

See MSDS Section 11.1 Information on toxicological effects.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment required:

Not applicable.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

Material will not burn.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Exposure to extreme heat can give rise to thermal decomposition.

Advice for fire-fighters:

When fire fighting conditions are severe and total thermal decomposition of the product is possible, wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained, positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus, bunker coat and pants, bands around arms, waist and legs, face mask, and protective covering for exposed areas of the head.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Ventilate the area with fresh air.  Refer to other sections of the MSDS for information regarding physical and health hazards, respiratory protection, ventilation, and personal protective equipment.  Call 3M-HELPS line (1-800-364-3577) for more information on handling and managing the spill.

Environmental precautions:

Avoid release to the environment.   For larger spills, cover drains and build dikes to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Contain spill.  Collect as much of the spilled material as possible.  Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material.  Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry.  Place in a metal container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities.  Remember, adding an absorbent material does not remove a toxic, corrosivity or flammability hazard.  Seal the container.  Clean up residue with detergent and water.

Reference to other MSDS sections:

Refer to MSDS Section 8 and Section 13 for more information.
