Ingestion: * Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, give half a litre of water to drink immediately. If irritation develops or persists seek medical attention.
Inhalation: * Remove casualty from 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. If symptoms develop seek medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Skin contact: * Irritation or pain may occur at the site of contact. There may be redness or whiteness of the skin in the area of exposure. An itchy rash may occur at the site of contact.
Eye contact: * There may be irritation and redness. The eyes may water profusely. Repeated exposure may cause chronic eye irritation. May cause mechanical irritation to the eyes.
Ingestion: May cause irritation of the gastrointestinal tract. Nausea and stomach pain may occur. There may be vomiting and diarrhoea.
Inhalation: There may be irritation of the throat with a feeling of tightness in the chest. May cause irritation of the mucous membranes and respiratory system. May cause shortness of breath, sneezing and coughing.
Delayed / immediate effects: * Immediate effects can be expected after short-term exposure. Nausea and stomach pain may occur.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Immediate / special treatment: * Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance. A decontamination shower should be available on the premises. Eye bathing equipment should be available on the premises.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: Suitable extinguishing media for the surrounding fire should be used. Use water spray to cool containers. Use water spray to reduce vapours.
Exposure hazards: In combustion emits toxic fumes of carbon dioxide / carbon monoxide. Non-flammable, but will support combustion. In a fire may liberate acrid and irritant 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: Wear suitable protective clothing. Do not attempt to take action without suitable protective clothing. Remove all incompatible materials. Do not create dust.
Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains or rivers.
Clean-up procedures: Transfer to a closable, labelled salvage container for disposal by an appropriate method. Wash the spillage site with large amounts of water.

Handling and storage

Handling requirements: Wear suitable protective clothing. Ensure there is sufficient ventilation of the area. Avoid the formation or spread of dust in the air. Avoid contact with the material and breathing its dust.
Storage conditions: Store in cool, well ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid contact with water or humidity. Avoid incompatible materials and conditions.
Suitable packaging: Must only be kept in original packaging.
