  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.  NO open flames.    Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide.   

 STRICT HYGIENE!  
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin Dry skin. Redness. Roughness. Burning sensation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Severe deep burns.  Wear safety goggles 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   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth.
