|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. NO contact with hot surfaces.||Use water in large amounts, alcohol-resistant foam, powder.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion on contact with many substances. Risk of explosion on heating. See Chemical Dangers.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. Combat fire from a sheltered position.|
|EXPOSURE||AVOID ALL CONTACT!|
|Inhalation||Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Cough. Dizziness. Headache. Sore throat. Weakness.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain. Further see Inhalation.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 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||Nausea. Shortness of breath. Vomiting. See Notes. Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention . See Notes.|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered sealable containers.

|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms.|
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated.
The symptoms of nausea, vomiting and cyanosis do not become manifest until several hours have past.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
The relation between odour and the occupational exposure limit cannot be indicated.
Decomposition during storage may cause a build-up of pressure in the container.
