First-aid measures

If inhaled:
- Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of fumes from overheating or combustion.
- Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed.

In case of eye contact:
- Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.

In case of skin contact:
- Wash off with plenty of water.

If swallowed:
- Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water.
- Do NOT induce vomiting.
- Consult a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
- Water
- powder
- Foam
- Dry chemical
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
- None.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
- In case of fire hazardous decomposition products may be produced such as: Gaseous hydrogen fluoride (HF), Fluorophosgene

Advice for firefighters:
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- When intervention in close proximity wear acid resistant over suit.
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Approach from upwind.
- Protect intervention team with a water spray as they approach the fire.
- Keep containers and surroundings cool with water spray.
- Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition.

Accidental release measures

Advice for non-emergency personnel:
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Advice for emergency responders:
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Material can create slippery conditions.
- Sweep up to prevent slipping hazard.
- Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions:
- Should not be released into the environment.
- Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
