4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Do not use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device.
Skin Contact
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
Eye Contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
Ingestion Contact
If swallowed, get medical aid immediately. Only induce vomiting if directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Note to Physician
Treat symptomatically and supportively.

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
In case of fire, use water, dry chemical, chemical foam, or alcohol-resistant foam.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Do not release runoff from fire control methods to sewers or waterways.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Vapors are heavier than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Vapors can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
Hazardous Combustion Products
Irritating and toxic fumes and gases.
Protective Measure in Fire
Because fire may produce toxic thermal decomposition products, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full-face piece operated in pressure-demand or positive-pressure mode.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Environment
Do not release into sewers or waterways.
Spill Clean Up
Small Spills: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand, or earth), or if solid, sweep up then place in suitable container. Clean up spills immediately. Large Spills: Dike far ahead of spill for later disposal.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
No information available.
Usage Descriptions
No information available.
Storage Precautions
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep container closed when not in use.
Handling Precautions
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Empty containers retain product residue (liquid and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. Do not ingest or inhale. Discard contaminated shoes. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks, or open flames. Use only with adequate ventilation.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
Wear chemically protective boots, aprons, and gauntlets to prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact.
Process Conditions
Provide general or local exhaust ventilation systems to maintain airborne concentrations below OSHA PELs. Local exhaust ventilation is preferred because it prevents contaminant dispersion into the work area by controlling it at its source.
Respirators
Seek professional advice prior to respirator selection and use. Follow OSHA respirator regulations (29 CFR 1910.134) and, if necessary, wear a MSHA/NIOSH-approved respirator. Select respirator based on its sustainability to provide adequate worker protection for given working conditions, level of airborne contamination, and presence of sufficient oxygen. For emergency or non-routine operations (cleaning spills, reactor vessels, or storage tanks), wear a SCBA. WARNING: AIR-PURIFYING RESPIRATORS DO NOT PROTECT WORKERS IN OXYGEN-DEFICIENT ATMOSPHERES. If respirators are used, OSHA requires a written respiratory protection program that includes at least: medical certification, training, fit-testing, periodic environmental monitoring, maintenance, inspection, cleaning, and convenient, sanitary storage areas.
Protective Gloves
Wear chemically protective gloves.
Eye Protection
Wear protective eye glasses or chemical safety goggles, per OSHA eye-and-face-protection regulations (29 CFR 1910.133). Contact lenses are not eye protective devices. Appropriate eye protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with, contact lenses.
Other Protection
Make emergency eyewash stations, safety/quick-drench showers, and washing facilities available in work area. Separate contaminated work clothes from street clothes. Launder before reuse. Remove this material from your shoes and clean personal protective equipment.
Hygienic Work Practices
Never eat, drink, or smoke in work areas. Practice good personal hygiene after using this material, especially before eating, drinking, smoking, using the toilet, or applying cosmetics.
