|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible. Many reactions may cause fire or explosion. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||NO open flames. NO contact with incompatible substances. See Chemical Dangers. NO contact with hot surfaces.||Use alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide. NO water.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 72°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||Above 72°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. NO direct contact with water.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! STRICT HYGIENE!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Burning sensation. Cough. Shortness of breath. Sore throat. Laboured breathing. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.||Avoid inhalation of dust and mist. Use closed system or ventilation.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.|
|Skin||Redness. Skin burns. Burning sensation. Pain. Blisters.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention . Wear protective gloves when administering first aid.|
|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||Burning sensation. Abdominal pain. Shock or collapse. Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Rinse mouth. Rest. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .|

Relative density (water = 1): 1.21
Solubility in water: reaction
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20°C: 50
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.88

|The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms.|
Reacts violently with fire extinguishing agents such as water.
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered.
