Flammable. Above 52°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. Above 52°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.
Use foam, powder, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
Burning sensation. Cough. Sore throat.
Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
Dry skin. Redness.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
Wear safety spectacles.
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. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .
CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Ventilation. Remove all ignition sources. 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.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis.
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.
