|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Combustible. See Chemical dangers Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air. Risk of fire and explosion on contact with strong oxidants.||NO open flames. NO contact with oxidizing agents. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding).||Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.|
|Inhalation||Headache. Nausea. Vomiting.||Avoid inhalation of fine dust. Use local exhaust and breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Tingling sensation.||Protective clothing. Protective gloves.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness. Watering of the eyes.||Wear face shield or safety goggles.||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 mouth. Excessive salivation. Headache. Nausea. Vomiting.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
|Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and particulates adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Ventilation. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. If solid: sweep spilled substance into sealable containers. If liquid: collect leaking liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in dry sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.||
