|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Flammable.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.||Use powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 39°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed. Risk of fire and explosion on contact with strong oxidants.||Above 39°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||AVOID ALL CONTACT!|
|Inhalation||Sore throat. Cough. Burning sensation. Headache. Dizziness. Shortness of breath. Laboured breathing.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Skin||Pain. Redness. Skin burns. Blisters.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower for at least 15 minutes. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Severe burns. Loss of vision.||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Sore throat. Burning sensation. Abdominal pain. Vomiting. Shock or collapse.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. If within a few minutes after ingestion, one small glass of water may be given to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
