  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  Risk of fire and explosion as a result of decomposition when heated.      In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

See EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE. AVOID ALL CONTACT!  
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Sore throat. Cough.  Use closed system or ventilation.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Burns.  Wear safety goggles or face shield.  Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Ingestion Sore throat. Abdominal pain.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention .

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is severely irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the kidneys. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development. 


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (SH); carcinogen category: 2 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment. 

NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
