Ingestion : In case of problems : Consult a doctor.

Protection of first-aiders: In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment and Protective suit

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media: Foam, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Unsuitable extinguishing media:High volume water jet

Specific hazards:
Flammable liquid. Thermal decomposition giving toxic products : Carbon oxides

Specific methods:
Ensure a system for the rapid emptying of containers. In case of fire nearby, remove exposed containers. Containers/tanks should be cooled with water spray.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapours. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke.

Environmental precautions:
Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains. Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
- Recovery: Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank Shovel into suitable container for disposal.
Absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material.
- Elimination: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).
