4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Do not 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. 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. Seek medical attention if symptoms occur.
Eye Contact
In case of eye contact, rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Seek medical attention.
Other Information
No further relevant information available.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Use fire extinguishing methods suitable to surrounding conditions.
HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Hazardous combustion products include oxides of carbon. 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.
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. 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 heat, sparks, open flames and other sources of ignition. Keep away from strong oxidising agent.

Engineering controls
Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of vapour below occupational exposure standards.
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
No information available
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
