  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable.  Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.  NO open flames.    Use water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat.  Use ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell. 
Skin Redness. Burning sensation. Numbness. Tingling sensation. Itching.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell. 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Watering of the eyes.  Wear face shield.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Numbness of tongue and lips. Abdominal pain. Vomiting. Excessive salivation. Muscle twitching. Unconsciousness. Convulsions.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer immediately for medical attention. 

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. Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. See Notes.
