|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Vapour/air mixtures are explosive. Explosive.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. NO contact with acids or oxidizing agents. NO contact with hot surfaces. Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Do NOT expose to friction or shock.||Use water spray, foam, carbon dioxide. Combat fire from a sheltered position. In case of fire: keep cylinder cool by spraying with water.|
|Inhalation||Headache. Nausea. Vomiting. Sore throat. Dizziness. Facial paralysis, numbness and tremor.||Use closed system or ventilation.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Protective gloves.||Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
