4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
Remove from exposure area to fresh air immediately. Perform artificial respiration if necessary. Maintain airway, blood pressure and respiration. Keep warm and at rest. Call for prompt medical aid.
Skin Contact
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash with soap or mild detergent and large amounts of water until no evidence of chemical remains (at least 15-20 minutes). If burns occur, cover affected area securely with sterile, dry, loose-fitting dressing. Get medical attention immediately.
Eye Contact
Wash eyes immediately with large amounts of water, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids, until no evidence of chemical remains (at least 15-20 minutes). Cover with sterile bandages. Get medical aid immediately.
Ingestion Contact
Give large amounts of milk or water immediately. Do not give anything by mouth if person is unconscious or otherwise unable to swallow. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower then hips to help prevent aspiration. Get medical attention immediately.
Note to Physician
Treat symptomatically and supportively. If inhaled, consider administering oxygen. If ingested, perform gastric lavage.

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray, or regular foam. For larger fires, water spray, fog, or foam are recommended.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Apply cooling water to sides of container until well after is it out. Do not use water directly on material. If lage amounts of combustible materials are ivolved, use water spray or fog in flooding amounts. Use water spray to absorb corrosive vapors.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Not readily ignitable.
Hazardous Combustion Products
Thermal decomposition products may include corrosive hydrogen fluoride and toxic oxides of barium.
Protective Measure in Fire
Avoid breathing corrosive vapors. Keep upwind. Use a self-contained breathing apparatus to avoid breathing corrosive vapors.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Do not touch spilled material. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Wear personal protective equipment as outlined in Section 8.
Environment
Keep unneccessary people away. Isolate hazard area and deny entry.
Spill Clean Up
For small spills, take up with sand or other absorbant material and place into containers for later disposal. For small dry spills, with clean shovel place material into clean, dry container and cover. Move containers from spill area. For larger spills, dike far ahead of spill for later disposal.
