clothing immediately and dispose of safely. Put victim at rest, cover with a blanket and
keep warm. Do not leave affected persons alone. In case of accident or unwellness,
seek medical advice immediately (show directions for use or safety data sheet if possible).
After inhalation: Provide fresh air. In case of breathing difficulties administer oxygen. No mouth-to-mouth
or mouth-to-nose resuscitation. Use Ambu bag or ventilator. Immediately get medical
attention.
In case of skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing immediately and dispose of safely.
After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Subsequently wash off

Do not induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
Foam, extinguishing powder.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
Water.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

May form dangerous gases and vapours in case of fire.
In case of fire may be liberated: Sulphur oxides, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Wear suitable protective clothing.
Use acid-proof equipment only.
Additional information: Cool endangered containers with water jetspray. Use water spray jet to knock down vapours.
Do not allow fire water to penetrate into surface or ground water.
If necessary notify appropriate authorities.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear suitable protective clothing.
Environmental precautions
Cover drains. Do not allow to penetrate into soil, waterbodies or drains.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Plug leak if safely possible. Isolate leaked material using non-flammable absorption agent
(e.g. sand, earth, vermiculit, diatomaceous earth) and collect it for disposal in appropriate
containers in accordance with the local regulations (see chapter 13).

Handling and storage
