Eye contact: Protect unharmed eye. In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Remove contact lenses.

Ingestion: Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Prevent vomiting if possible. Immediately give large quantities of water to drink. If a person vomits when lying on his back, place him in the recovery position. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If accidentally swallowed obtain immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
- Suitable extinguishing media: Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
- Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
- Specific hazards during fire fighting: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Advice for firefighter:
- Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Further information: In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- Personal precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective equipment. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.

Environmental precautions
- Environmental precautions: Should not be released into the environment. Avoid subsoil penetration. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
