  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.      Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!  
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Sweet taste in the mouth. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Headache.  Avoid inhalation of fine dust and mist.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell.
