First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Seek medical attention. If not
breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is
difficult, give oxygen.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediate first aid is required to prevent eye damage. If
victim is wearing contact lenses, remove them. Take care not
to contaminate the victim's healthy skin and eye.
Immediately flush the eye(s) with large quantities of
running water for a minimum of 15 minutes. Hold the eyelids
apart during the flushing to ensure rinsing of the entire
surface of the eye and lids with water. DO NOT let the
victim rub the eyes. Do not attempt to neutralise with
chemical agents. Obtain medical attention immediately. Oils
and ointments should not be used at this time. Continue
flushing with water or normal saline solution, if available,
for an additional 15 minutes if a physician is not
immediately available.
Emergency measure - Skin: Immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Flush
material from skin with water, and then wash thoroughly with
soap and plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Do not
attempt to neutralise with chemical agents. Get medial
attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Thoroughly clean contaminated shoes before reuse or discard
if necessary.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Give plenty of water to drink. DO NOT evoke vomiting. Seek
medical attention immediately. If vomiting occurs, keep head
below hips to reduce risk of aspiration.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or foam
extinguishing agents.

Product arising from burning: CO, CO2, NOx, HCl

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wearing a self contained breathing apparatus is required.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Isolate spill area and restrict non-essential personnel from
area. Extinguish all sources of ignition in the area.
Product may produce flammable vapours which can travel to an
ignition source and flash back. All personnel involved in
spill clean-up should follow good industrial hygiene
practices. Wear appropriate protective equipment to prevent
skin and eye contact. Stop source of spill if this is
possible without being injured.


Small spills should be absorbed with a suitable,
non-combustible, inert material (e.g. sand). Remove the
absorbed material, and place in an appropriate chemical
container for disposal. Flush the spill area with detergent
and water.


Large spills should be diked to prevent spreading. Product
may create a fire hazard if allowed to enter sewers. Pump
spilled material to salvage according to a predetermined
plan. Remove residual material, and flush spill area with
detergent and water.
