First-aid measures

Description of necessary first-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air

Skin contact: Wash with soap and plenty of water

Eye contact: Flush with water for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open forcibly. Consult the doctor, if necessary

Ingestion: Immediately rinse mouth. If feeling unwell, after accidental swallowing, consult the doctor

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry chemical powder, water spray, carbon dioxide, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use direct water stream, which may spread fire

Specific hazards arising from the chemical: Development of hazardous combustion products like oxides of carbon, nitrogen, various other hydrocarbons and halogenated

compounds possible in the event of fire

Special protective equipment and precautions: Wear personal protective equipment and self-contained for fire-fighters breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment : Use personal protective equipment. Wash hands after exposure  and emergency procedures with the substance. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.
