First-aid measures

INGESTION
If swallowed, call a physician immediately. Only induce vomiting at the instruction of a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

SKIN CONTACT
Wash immediately with plenty of water and soap. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes without delay. Obtain medical attention. Do not reuse contaminated clothing without laundering. Destroy or thoroughly clean shoes before re-use.

EYE CONTACT
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.

Fire-fighting measures

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Use water spray, alcohol foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical to extinguish fire. If water spray or alcohol is used, it should be in large quantities.

PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Firefighters, and others exposed, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear full firefighting protective clothing.

SPECIAL HAZARDS
Water or alcohol foam may react vigorously with hot isocyanate, releasing carbon dioxide. Do not reseal contaminated containers since pressure build-up may cause rupture. Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
Where exposure level is known, wear approved respirator suitable for level of exposure. Where exposure level is not known, wear approved, positive pressure, self-contained respirator. In addition to the protective clothing/equipment, wear impermeable boots.

Handling and storage

HANDLING
Since this material has low vapour pressure, inhalation risk is low under ambient conditions. However, if conditions are created during use or handling where material is volatilised (e.g. by spraying or exposure to elevated temperatures or pressures), inhalation risk may increase. Appropriate exposure controls must be applied to prevent inhalation exposure.

STORAGE
Store at < 50°C (122°F) to maintain product integrity. It is recommended to store at or below ambient temperature, but above -5°C (23°F).
