First-aid measures

Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Call a physician if symptoms develop or persist.

Skin contact
For skin contact flush with large amounts of water while removing contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.

Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.

Have victim rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Never give anything by mouth to a victim who is unconscious or is having convulsions. If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs naturally, have victim lean forward to reduce risk of aspiration. Get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

General fire hazards
Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along the ground to some distant source of ignition and flash back.

Hazardous combustion products
Combustion products include fumes, smoke, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Irritating and toxic gases or fumes may be released during a fire.

Suitable extinguishing media
Dry chemical, CO2, water spray or regular foam.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Do not use water jet.

Specific hazards
None known

Protection of firefighters
Firefighters should wear full protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.

Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Do not flush into surface water.

Methods for cleaning up
Large Spills: Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal. Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite, sand or earth to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal.
Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.

Other information
Clean up in accordance with all applicable regulations.

Handling and storage

Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapor/spray. Do not get this material in contact with skin or eyes. Use this product with adequate ventilation. Use non-sparking tools when opening or closing containers. Follow all SDS/label precautions even after container is emptied because they may retain product residues.

Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Store away from strong oxidizers.
