EYE CONTACT:  Immediately remove contact lenses and flush eyes with large amounts of water, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids, until no evidence of chemical remains at least 15 - 20 minutes.  Get immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:  Water mist, foam dry chemical, CO2.  Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.

UNSUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:  High volume water jet as this may spread fire.

FIRE FIGHTING: Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing. Avoid inhalation of material or combustion by products. Stay upwind stay out of low areas.

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Use water spray to cool and protect fire exposed containers.  

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: May generate potential toxic and irritating fumes and oxides.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS: Cleanup personnel should wear appropriate protective clothing and equipment. Keep unnecessary and unprotected people away from area of spill. Ensure proper ventilation spill site. Avoid inhalation of dust.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS:  Do not let spilled material enter floor drains, sewers or water sources or the environment.

METHODS FOR CLEAN-UP:   Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep unnecessary and unprotected people away from area of spill.  Clean up personnel should wear appropriate protective clothing and equipment. Collect spilled material (avoid generation of dust) and place into an appropriate waste disposal container.  After clean-up is complete wash spill site. Do no allow material to enter floor drains, sewers or water sources of any kind.
