First-aid measures

General advice:

Seek medical advice. If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Eye contact:

Hold eyelids apart, initiate and maintain gentle and continuous irrigation until the patient receives medical care. If medical care is not promptly available, continue to irrigate for one hour.

Skin contact:

Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and any extraneous chemical, if possible to do so without delay. Flush immediately with copious amounts of water. Initiate and maintain continuous irrigation until the patient receives medical care. If medical care is not promptly available, continue to irrigate for one hour. Cover wound with sterile dressing. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.

Ingestion:

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn victim's head to the side.

Inhalation:

Move to fresh air.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms:

No data available.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment:NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: Application of corticosteroid cream has been effective in treating skin irritation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

Alcohol-resistant foam.Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry chemical. Dry sand. Limestone powder.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons.:

No data available.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Incomplete combustion may form carbon monoxide. May generate ammonia gas. May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. Burning produces noxious and toxic fumes. Downwind personnel must be evacuated.

Advice for fire-fighters:

Avoid contact with the skin. A face shield should be worn. Use personal protective equipment. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Further information:

Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses., Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Environmental precautions:

Construct a dike to prevent spreading.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Contact Air Products' Emergency Response Center for advice. Approach suspected leak areas with caution. Place in appropriate chemical waste container.

Additional advice:

If possible, stop flow of product.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
