First-aid measures

Inhalation
Move into fresh air and keep at rest. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin contact
Wash skin with soap and water.

Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.

Ingestion
Get medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media
[On large fire use]AFFF(Aqueous films forming foam) alcohol compatible foam is an effective method for extinguishing well-developed fires. Extinguishing agent such as water spray[fog] and carbon dioxide also can be applicable. On small fires, water fog and dry chemical also can be applicable.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
By heating and fire, harmful vapours/gases may be formed.

5.3. Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters
Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet, gloves, rubber boots, and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Special fire fighting procedures
Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non-emergency personnel
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.

For emergency responders
Not available.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Not available.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Do not breathe mist or vapour. Provide adequate ventilation.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Keep in original container.
