  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible.  Above 61°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.  NO open flames.  Above 61°C use a closed system and ventilation.  Use dry powder, carbon dioxide, foam.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

 AVOID ALL CONTACT!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. Laboured breathing.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness. Pain. Skin burns.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Burns.  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 Sore throat. Burning sensation in the throat and chest. Abdominal pain.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .
