First-aid measures

Inhalation: In case of problems: Move injured person into fresh air and keep person calm under observation. If uncomfortable: Seek hospital and bring these instructions.

Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothes and rinse skin thoroughly with water. If irritation persists: Seek medical attention and bring along these instructions.

Eye contact: Do not rub eye. Immediately flush with plenty of water for up to 15 minutes. Remove any contact lenses and open eyelids widely. If irritation persists: Continue flushing during transport to hospital. Bring these instructions.

Ingestion: Immediately rinse mouth and drink plenty of water. Keep person under observation. If person becomes uncomfortable seek hospital and bring these instructions.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: Use fire-extinguishing media appropriate for surrounding materials.

Specific hazards: During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed. (HBr, NOx)

Protective equipment for fire-fighters: Selection of respiratory protection for fire fighting: follow the general fire precautions indicated in the workplace.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid inhalation of dust and contact with skin and eyes. Use work methods which minimise dust production. Follow precautions for safe handling described in the safety data sheet.

Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground.

Methods for cleaning up: Collect spillage with shovel, broom or the like. Flush contaminated area with plenty of water.

Handling and storage

Safe handling advice:

Observe good chemical hygiene practices. Avoid inhalation of dust and contact with skin and eyes. Change contaminated clothing.
