|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||NO open flames.||Use water in large amounts.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion.||Do NOT expose to friction or shock.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. Combat fire from a sheltered position.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE!|
|Inhalation||See Ingestion.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. See Notes. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Roughness. Yellow staining of the skin. Further see Inhalation.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Wear safety goggles.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Nausea. Vomiting. Palpitations. Shock or collapse. Sweating.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rest. Refer for medical attention .|
