First-aid measures

Eye: Eye irritation and corrosion. Flush immediately with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Eyelids should be held away from the eyeball to ensure thorough rinsing. Get medical assistance.
Skin: Burning of the skin. Immediately flush the skin with 5% Sodium Thiosulfate solution, while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. If not possible flush with large amounts of cold water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists get medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing with water before reuse.
Inhalation: Remove exposed person from exposure areas to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If conscious, drink large quantities of milk and any common cooking (vegetable) oil if available. Take immediately to a hospital or physician. If vomiting occurs administer additional water. If unconscious, or in convulsions, take immediately to a hospital. DO NOT attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media: Use dry chemical or carbon dioxide to extinguish fire. Water may be ineffective but should be used to cool fire-exposed containers, structures, to dilute and put down fumes and gas and to protect personnel. Use water to dilute spills and to flush them away from sources of ignition.
Fire Fighting Procedures: Exposed firefighters must wear certified positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus with full-face mask and full protective clothing. Cool down the containers and equipment exposed to heat with a water spray.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: May react with metal and form hydrogen gas. Approach fire from upwind to avoid hazardous vapors and toxic decomposition products.
Combustion Products: Irritating or toxic substances may be emitted upon thermal decomposition. Thermal decomposition products include iodine fumes.

Accidental release measures

Evacuate area, remove ignitable substances, and provide maximum ventilation.
Large spills should be placed in closed containers for recovery or disposal. If dilution with water has occurred, treat with alkaline containing neutralizing chemicals such as sodium carbonate and clean up as a spill residue on absorber. For small spills and large spill residues, apply sodium carbonate, then recover on absorber, such as vermiculite, and place in closed containers for disposal. After all visible traces of spilled materials have been removed, thoroughly flush area with large amounts of water. Remove respiratory and skin and eye protection only after vapors have been cleared from area.

Handling and storage

Handling: Wear eye, skin when handling. Wear fresh clothing daily. Keep away from heat, sparks or flame. Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Wash thoroughly after handling. Ventilation must be sufficient to limit employee exposure to iodine/acid vapor in work area at or below permissible exposure limit. Do not take internally. Do not eat, drink, or smoke in work area.
Storage: Keep away from sunlight and other sources of heat. Keep from contact with alkaline substances concentrated ammonia and other reactive or combustive materials. Keep away from explosive mixtures. Do not store in open, unlabeled or mislabeled containers.
