Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water.
Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.
Ingestion
Rinse mouth. Hold person's head low, to prevent aspiration (inhalation into the windpipe) If conscious, give the victim plenty of water to drink. Call a physician immediately.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Lungs

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
This ester can cause moderately serious poisoning effects.
Elimination is therefore the main aim of treatment.
Due to its non-corrosive nature, elimination can be achieved through immediate vomiting or irrigation
of the stomach if the chemical is ingested. It is helpful to give the person powdered carbon afterwards.
Take preventive measures against aspiration (intubation if necessary).
Irritated areas of skin can be treated with corticosteroids.
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Use personal protective equipment.
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Additional advice
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local
regulations.
