|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Flammable.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.||Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 38°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||Above 38°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!|
|Inhalation||Dizziness. Headache. Drowsiness. Nausea. Cough. Unconciousness.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Dry skin.||Protective gloves.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness.||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||Cough. Diarrhoea. Sore throat. Vomiting. Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention . See Notes.|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Ventilation. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT wash away into sewer. Personal protection: filter respirator for organic vapours of low boiling point adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance.||
