Move to fresh air, rest, half upright position, loosen clothing. Oxygen or artificial respiration if there is difficulty in breathing. Seek medical advice after significant exposure.

After contact with skin
Wash immediately with soap and water. Take off contaminated clothing immediately. In case of skin eruption seeks medical advice.

After contact with eyes
Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Eyelids should be held away from the eyeball to ensure thorough rinsing. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

May cause sensitization by skin contact. Toxic if swallowed.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Do not delay treatment of exposed individuals, death may result.
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Water-spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Full water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Do not inhale explosion or combustion vapors. Fire will produce acrid smoke.

Fire may produce:
Carbon monoxide
Carbon dioxide
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Dust may form explosive mixture in air.

Advice for firefighters
Wear self contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Additional information
Water used to extinguish a fire should not be allowed to enter drains, soil or surface waters.
Provide for measures for the retention of product and extinguishing water.
Contaminated extinguishing water and soil must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.
Cool containers at risk with water spray jet.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid dust formation.
Do not breathe dust.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Use personal protective clothing.
Dust may form explosive mixture in air.
Remove all sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater. Avoid subsoil penetration.
This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste.
Inform respective authorities in case of seepage into water course or sewage system.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Use personal protective equipment.
