|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Highly flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Vapour/air mixtures are explosive. Risk of fire and explosion on contact with incompatible substances. See Chemical Dangers.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. NO contact with strong oxidizing agents. NO contact with hot surfaces. Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding). Do NOT use compressed air for filling, discharging, or handling. Use non-sparking handtools.||Use powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!|
|Inhalation||Cough. Sore throat. Nausea. Dizziness. Headache. Drowsiness. Vomiting. Unconsciousness. Abdominal pain.||Use ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED!||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible).|
|Ingestion||See Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell.|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
|Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Collect leaking liquid in sealable air tight containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT wash away into sewer.||
