EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! STRICT HYGIENE!  IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
Inhalation Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Confusion. Convulsions. Dizziness. Headache. Nausea. Unconciousness.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes   Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion See Inhalation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
On combustion, forms toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides. Reacts with strong oxidants. This generates fire hazard. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance may cause effects on the blood. This may result in formation of methaemoglobin. Medical observation is indicated. The effects may be delayed. See Notes. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
