Eye Contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.
Protection of first-aiders:
A rescuer should war personal protective equipment, such as rubber gloves and air-tight googles.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
dry chemical, foam, water spray, carbon dioxide.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
Do not use solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
Specific methods:
Fire-extinguishing work is done from the windward and the suitable fire- extinguishing method according to the surrounding situation is used. In case of a small fire in a confined area, movable containers should be promptly evacuated. Uninvolved persons should evacuate to a safe place. Immediately remove all sources of combustion. Measures should be taken to contain the water- discharge for fire-fighting lest those substances which affect the environment should leak.
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
When extinguishing fire, be sure to wear personal protective equipment.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Use personal protective equipment. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Ensure adequate ventilation. Entry to non-involved personnel should be controlled around the leakage area by roping off, etc. Fire-extinguishing devices should be prepared in case of a fire. Prevent product from entering drains.
Environmental precautions:
Prevent product from entering drains.
Methods for cleaning up:
It should be collected with a suitable absorbent e.g. rag, dry sand, earth, sawdust, etc. If the product is solidified, sweep and collect it not to let the dust scatter, before recovering it into an airtight container. In case of large amount of outflow, prevent it by spreading earth on the ground. Adhered or collected material, etc. should be promptly disposed of, in accordance with appropriate laws and regulations.
Prevention of secondary hazards:
Remove all sources of ignition. Fire-extinguishing devices should be prepared in case of a fire.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Technical measures: Handling is performed in a well ventilated place. Wear suitable protective equipment. Be careful not to cause leakage, overflow, or dispersion. Steam should not be generated unnecessarily. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Wash hands and face before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
Precautions:
Handle in a local exhaust unit to prevent dust and aerosol from being generated.
Advice on safe handling:
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Storage:
Storage conditions:
Take precautions against fire. Seal the container air-tight and store it in a cool dark place. Keep it away from fire sources, such as fire or heat source. Store away from oxidizing agents.

Disposal considerations

Wear appropriate personal protective clothing. In accordance with local and national regulations
If the substance is burned for disposal, it should be burned in a furnace equipped with an after-burner and a scrubber after diluting it with a combustible solvent.
Empty the contents throughly before disposing of a container. If the substance is difficult to be disposed of, (e.g. by reason that there is no waste disposal facility), it should be committed to an authorized industrial waste processing agent.
