Breathing vapours can cause serious lung injury.
If inhaled, could be harmful.
Irritant to eyes and skin.
Fire could produce irritating or poisonous gases.
Runoff from fire-control or dilution water could cause pollution.
|4. First Aid Measures|
|First Aid Skin||Flush body with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Immerse frostbitten areas in warm water or apply warm water compresses to frozen parts.
Do not rub affected skin.
Immediately remove contaminated clothing, including shoes.
|First Aid Eyes||Flush eyes with water for 15 minutes.
Hold eyelids open while washing.
If pain persists, place 2-3 drops 1/2 % pontocaine solution in affected eye(s).
(ponotocaine is also known as "amethocaine", "tetracaine" and "pantocaine")

|First Aid Inhalation||If not breathing give artificial respiration.
If breathing of victim is difficult administer oxygen for a maximum period of one hour.
|5. Fire Fighting Measures|
|Some of these materials may react violently with water.
SMALL FIRES: Dry chemical, CO2, Halon, water spray or standard foam.
LARGE FIRES: Water spray, fog or standard foam is recommended.
Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk.
Cool containers that are exposed to flames with water from the
side until well after the fire is out. Stay away from ends of tanks.
Keep unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area and deny entry.
Stay upwind; keep out of low areas.
Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and structural firefighter's
protective clothing will provide limited protection.
|6. Accidental Release Measures|
|Full protective clothing including breathing apparatus
Contain (avoid spillage from entering drains or water courses)
Restrict access to area.
Provide adequate protective equipment and ventilation.
Remove sources of heat and flame.
Notify occupational and environmental authorities.
SPILL OR LEAK:
Do not touch spilled material.
Stop leak if you can do it without risk.
Takeup with sand or other noncombustible absorbent material
and place into containers for later disposal.
SMALL DRY SPILLS: With clean shovel place material into clean,
dry container and cover; move container from spill area.
Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal.
|7. Handling And Storage|
|Separation of at least 3M from the following classes is recommended.
Flammable Liquids Flammable Solids
Spontaneously Combustibles Poison
Fire separation of at least 5M or 4Hr fire resistant wall
from the following classes is recommended.
Flammable Gases Dangerous When Wet
Oxidizing Agents Organic Peroxides
Storage in the same room or space is prohibited with the following classes:
The rooms or spaces should be at least 10M apart.
|8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection|
|Occupational Exposure Limits||No Exposure Limits Established|
|Controls||The control measures appropriate for a particular worksite depend
on how this material is used and on the extent of exposure.
The best protection is to enclose operations and/or provide
local exhaust ventilation at the site of chemical release.
Use a non-sparking, grounded ventilation system separate from other
exhaust ventilation systems. Exhaust directly to the outside.
Supply sufficient replacement air to make up for air removed.
Have a safety shower/eye wash fountain readily available in the immediate work area
|Personal Protection||If engineering controls and work practices are not effective in
controlling this material, then wear suitable personal protection
equipment, including chemical safety goggles & face shield, boots,
imperious gloves, coveralls, & respiratory protection.
Have appropriate equipment available for use in emergencies.
