First-aid measures

Dust inhalation: Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. Keep under medical surveillance.
Skin contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with soap and water. If significant contact: Keep under medical surveillance. Hospitalise.
Eye contact: Wash open eyes immediately, abundantly and thoroughly for at least 15 minutes. Consult an ophthalmologist immediately.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. Hospitalise.

Protection of first-aiders: In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Protective suit

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: dry powder

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Thermal decomposition giving toxic products : Ammonia, nitrogen oxides, Carbon oxides, Hydrogen cyanide (hydrocyanic acid)

Precautions for fire-fighters:
