|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||Use alcohol-resistant foam, dry sand, powder, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Burning sensation. Convulsions. Cough. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Sore throat.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain.||Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||Wear safety spectacles.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Abdominal pain. Cough.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .|

|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to mammals and bees. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be taken to avoid any additional release, for example through inappropriate disposal.|
Liquid formulation can be aspired into the lungs resulting in chemical pneumonitis, showing tremors and convultions.
If the substance is formulated with solvent(s) also consult the card(s) (ICSC) of the solvent(s).
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
