Flammable. Above 41°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. Above 41°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.
Use foam, alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
Dry skin. Redness.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention .
Wear face shield.
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. Refer for medical attention .

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and through the skin.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the skin. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system.
Inhalation risk No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure The substance defats the skin, which may cause dryness or cracking. The substance may have effects on the nervous system. This may result in peripheral neuropathy.
