|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Highly flammable. Vapour/air mixtures are explosive. Risk of fire and explosion on contact with bases, acids or strong oxidizing agents.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Use non-sparking handtools.||Use alcohol-resistant foam. Use powder. Use carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. Combat fire from a sheltered position.|
|STRICT HYGIENE! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Burning sensation. Cough. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Sore throat. Nausea. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain. Blisters. Skin burns.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Severe deep 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||Burning sensation in the throat and chest. Convulsions. Nausea.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|

|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
TLV: (ceiling value): 0.1 ppm as STEL; (skin); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen).
MAK: carcinogen category: 3.
EU-OEL: 0.05 mg/m3, 0.02 ppm as TWA; 0.12 mg/m3, 0.05 ppm as STEL
|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms.|
|The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
An added stabilizer or inhibitor can influence the toxicological properties of this substance, consult an expert.
The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; render harmless if positive.
