FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use powder, AFFF, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!   
Inhalation Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Dizziness. Headache. Shortness of breath. Nausea. Vomiting. Convulsions. Weakness. Confusion. Unconciousness.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Burning sensation. Further see Inhalation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles or face shield.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Abdominal pain. Further see Inhalation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides and hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163). 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):.
MAK (2b (not established but data is available)): Skin absorption (H); Sensitization of skin (SH); (DFG 2004). 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion. 

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 short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes and skin. The substance may cause effects on the blood. This may result in formation of methaemoglobin. Medical observation is indicated. The effects may be delayed. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
The substance may have effects on the blood. This may result in formation of methaemoglobin.
