|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Not combustible. Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting.||NO contact with water or steam. NO contact with hot surfaces.||In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media. NO water.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion on contact with water. Risk of fire and explosion as a result of decomposition when heated.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. NO direct contact with water.|
|EXPOSURE||STRICT HYGIENE!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Cough. Shortness of breath. Sore throat. Burning sensation. Laboured breathing. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.||Use ventilation. Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Skin burns. Pain. Blisters.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||First rinse with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, then remove contaminated clothes and rinse again. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Severe deep burns.||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||Abdominal cramps. Burning sensation. Weakness. Diarrhoea. Vomiting. Abdominal pain. Shock or collapse.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .|

Occupational exposure limits
Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|PHYSICAL PROPERTIES||ENVIRONMENTAL DATA|
Boiling point: 91°C
Melting point: -46°C
Relative density (water = 1): 2.7
Solubility in water: reaction
Vapour pressure, kPa at 14°C: 5.3
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 8.6
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 1.4
Reacts violently with fire extinguishing agents such as water or foam.
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
