  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible.  Above 75°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.  NO open flames.  Above 75°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.  In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

   
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation   Use ventilation.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness. Pain.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Refer for medical attention . 
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.  Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
