Flammable. Above 50°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. Above 50°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.
Use alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
Cough. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Sore throat.
Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
Dry skin. Redness.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
Wear safety goggles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Rest. Refer for medical attention .

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system.
Inhalation risk A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure The substance defats the skin, which may cause dryness or cracking.
