4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Immediately rinse mouth with water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek immediate medical attention.
Inhalation
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim inhaled the substance. Induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a oneway valve or other proper respiratory medical device. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Seek medical attention if breathing problems develop.
Skin Contact
In case of skin contact, immediately remove contaminated clothing and wash affected areas with water and soap and then rinse with methylated spirits. Seek immediate medical attention.
Eye Contact
In case of eye contact, hold eyelids open and rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Seek immediate medical attention.
Other Information
Inhalation: Harmful if inhaled. May cause respiratory irritation, coughing, discomfort, difficulty breathing and shortness of breath. Single significant exposure may cause death.
Skin Contact: Harmful in contact with skin. Causes severe skin burns. May cause irritation, redness, itchiness and skin dryness. May be toxic if absorbed through the skin. Eye Contact: Causes serious eye damage, irritation, tearing, stinging, blurred vision and pain.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. May cause irritation of mouth, throat and stomach, mucous build up, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam or water spray.
HAZCHEM

Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or in case of fire. This material does not burn. When fighting a major fire wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective equipment.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear approved respiratory protection, chemical resistant gloves, protective clothing and safety boots. Evacuate all non-essential personnel from affected area. Do not breathe vapours. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions
In the event of a major spill, prevent spillage from entering drains or water courses.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Stop leak if safe to do so and absorb spill with sand, earth, vermiculite or some other absorbent material. Collect the spilled material and place into a suitable container for disposal.
For large spills, contact emergency services, bund the area and blanket the spill with foam or use water fog to disperse vapours.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Use of safe work practices are recommended to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation of vapours. Use only in a well-ventilated area.
Food, beverages and tobacco products should not be stored or consumed where this material is in use. Always wash hands before smoking, eating, drinking or using the toilet. Wash contaminated clothing and other protective equipment before storage or re-use. Provide eyewash fountains and safety showers in close proximity to points of potential exposure.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in a cool, dry and well ventilated area. Keep in original container, tightly closed when not in use. Protect from direct sunlight, heat, sparks, open flames and other sources of ignition. Keep away from strong oxidising agents, strong alkalies, combustible materials, nitrates and acids.

Engineering controls
Provide sufficient mechanical (general and/or local exhaust) ventilation to maintain exposure below the limits.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Eye and face protectors for protection against splashing materials or liquids. See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1337 for more information.
Skin protection
PVC, PVA, nitrile, neoprene, rubber or vinyl gloves. See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2161 for more information.
When selecting gloves for use against certain chemicals, the degradation resistance, permeation rate and permeation breakthrough time should be considered.
Occupational protective clothing (depending on conditions in which it has to be used, in particular as regards the period for which it is worn, which shall be determined on the basis of the seriousness of the risk, the frequency of exposure to the risk, the characteristics of the workstation of each worker and the performance of the protective clothing). See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4501 for more information
Body protection
No information available.
Respiratory protection
When vapours approach the exposure standards then the use of a half-face organic vapour respirator with dust/mist filter is recommended. When vapours exceed the exposure standards, the use of an positive pressure demand self-contained or airline breathing apparatus is recommended. Filter capacity and respirator type depends on exposure levels. If entering spaces where the airborne concentration of a contaminant is unknown then the use of a selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with positive pressure air supply is recommended. See Australian Standards AS/NZS 1715 and 1716 for more information
