TYPES OF HAZARD
|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible.||NO open flames.||Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 93°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||Above 93°C use a closed system and ventilation.||Combat fire from a sheltered position.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID ALL CONTACT! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Convulsions. Dizziness. Headache. Vomiting. Weakness. Unconsciousness.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Further see Inhalation.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Blurred vision.||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Convulsions. Diarrhoea. Dizziness. Headache. Vomiting. Weakness. Unconsciousness.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Refer for medical attention .|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
