First-aid measures

Skin Contact:
Remove all contaminated clothes and footwear immediately unless stuck to the skin. Drench the affected area with running water for 10 minutes or longer if substance is still on skin. Transfer to hospital if there are burns or symptoms of poisoning.
Eye Contact:
Bathe the eye with running water for 15 minutes. Transfer to hospital for specialist examination.
Ingestion:
Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, give half a litre of water to drink immediately. If unconscious, check for breathing and apply artificial respiration if necessary. If unconscious and breathing is OK, place in the recovery position. Transfer to hospital as soon as possible.
Inhalation:
Remove casualty form exposure ensuring one’s own safety whilst doing so. If conscious, ensure the casualty sits or lies down. If unconscious and breathing is OK, place in the recovery position. If unconscious, check for breathing and apply artificial respiration if necessary. Transfer to hospital as soon as possible.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Suitable extinguishing media for the surrounding fire should be used. Use water spray to cool containers.
Exposure Hazards: Toxic. In combustion emits toxic fumes.
Advice for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: Notify the police and fire brigade immediately. If outside, do not approach from downwind. If outside, keep bystanders upwind and away from danger point. Mark out the contaminated area with signs and prevent access to unauthorised personnel. Do not attempt to take action without suitable protective clothing. Do not create dust.
Environmental Precautions: Do not discharge into drains or rivers.
Clean-up Procedures: Clean-up should be dealt with only by qualified personnel familiar with the specific substance. Transfer to a closable, labelled salvage container for disposal by an appropriate method.

Handling and storage

Handling Requirements: Avoid direct contact with the substance. Ensure there is exhaust ventilation of the area. Avoid the formation or spread of dust in the air. Do not heat under confinement.
Storage Conditions: Store in a cool, well ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed. The floor of the storage room must be impermeable to prevent the escape of liquids.
