|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Flammable.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.||Use alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 50°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||Above 50°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|Inhalation||Cough. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Sore throat.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest.|
|Skin||Dry skin. Redness.||Protective gloves.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||Wear safety goggles.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Rest. Refer for medical attention .|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
