|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Many reactions may cause fire or explosion.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.||Use water in large amounts. Do not attempt to extinguish large fire, evacuate area.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion on rapid heating or on strong shock. Explosive.||Do NOT expose to friction or shock. Do not expose to heat and keep wet with at least 30% water.||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!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Headache. Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Cough. Sore throat. Laboured breathing. Vomiting. Abdominal cramps. Unconciousness. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain. Yellow staining of the skin. Further see Inhalation.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . Wear protective gloves when administering first aid.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||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||Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Wear protective gloves when inducing vomiting.|
