If breathed in, move person into fresh air.
Call a physician or poison control center immediately.
Remove to fresh air.
Keep patient warm and at rest.
If unconscious place in recovery position and seek medical advice.

Small amounts splashed into eyes can cause irreversible tissue damage and blindness.

Ingestion :
Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Take victim immediately to hospital.
Do not induce vomiting! May cause chemical burns in mouth and throat.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media :
Alcohol-resistant foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical

Specific hazards during fire fighting / Specific hazards arising from the chemical :
Water spray may be ineffective unless used by experienced firefighters.
Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Combustion products :
Carbon oxides
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Halogenated compounds
Hydrogen chloride

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters :
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information :
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
For safety reasons in case of fire, cans should be stored separately in closed containments.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions :
Use personal protective equipment.
Wear respiratory protection.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Remove all sources of ignition.
Beware of vapors accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapors can accumulate in low areas.

Environmental precautions :
Prevent product from entering drains.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods for cleaning up / Methods for containment :
Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations.
