Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
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.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness.
Inhalation risk A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
The auto-ignition temperature is unknown in the literature. Explosive limits are unknown in literature, although the substance is combustible and has a flash point < 61°C.
