  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.      Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!  
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Sweet taste in the mouth. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Headache.  Avoid inhalation of fine dust and mist.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED!  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell. 
Eyes   Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion Nausea. Vomiting.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.
