|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, powder, foam, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.||Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent deposition of dust. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding).|
|Inhalation||Sore throat. Cough. Burning sensation. Shortness of breath. See Notes.||Use breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness.||Protective gloves.||Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Burns.||Wear safety goggles.||Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Blue haze and halo.|
|Ingestion||Sore throat. Burning sensation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink.|
