|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Above 30°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. Above 30°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding). Use non-sparking handtools.||Use foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! STRICT HYGIENE!|
|Inhalation||Confusion. Cough. Headache. Sore throat. Shortness of breath. Burning sensation.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Blurred vision. Pain. Redness.||Wear safety spectacles 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.|
