First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
- Skin Contact: Immediately flush affected area with copious amounts of water. Remove contaminated clothing immediately to prevent further skin absorption. Seek medical advice if symptoms persist.
- Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes, holding eyelids apart. Get medical attention if irritation or other symptoms exist.
- Inhalation: Remove from exposure, rest and keep warm. Give oxygen if respiration is shallow. If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration. Seek medical advice if symptoms persist.
- Ingestion: Give water to drink but do not induce vomiting Do NOT induce vomiting. May cause irritation to the respiratory tract. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
- Acute: Contact with eyes causes irritation. Contact with this material may cause skin irritation. May cause irritation to upper respiratory system Harmful by ingestion.
- Delayed Effects: None known.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
- Thermal Exposure: No evidence of carcinogenic effects.
- Note to Physician: No additional first aid information available.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
- Appropriate Extinguishing Media: Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical. Alcohol foam.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

- Flammability Classification (OSHA): Not applicable.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- Evacuation Procedures: Isolate the hazard area and deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel.
- Special Instructions: Remove all contaminated clothing to prevent further absorption. Decontaminate affected personnel using the first aid procedures in Section 4. Leather shoes that have been saturated must be discarded.

Environmental precautions
- Prevent releases to soils, drains, sewers, and waterways.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
