  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible.    NO open flames.    Use powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray, carbon dioxide.   

   
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation   Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin     Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness.    Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.
