4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
Remove dentures if any. Watch for an obstruction in the victim's mouth. Remove if possible what is causing the obstruction but do not force fingers or a hard object between the victim's teeth. Have conscious person drink several glasses of water or milk. INDUCE VOMITING by sticking finger in throat. Seek immediate medical attention.
Serious Ingestion: Examine the lips and mouth to ascertain whether the tissues are damaged, a possible indication that the toxic material was ingested; the absence of such signs, however, is not conclusive. Remove dentures if any. Watch for an obstruction in the victim's mouth. Remove if possible what is causing the obstruction but do not force fingers or a hard object between the victim's teeth. If a soft pad can be inserted between the victim's teeth, it will protect the tongue from being bitten. A badly bleeding tongue immensely complicates the patient's problems. Have conscious person drink several glasses of water or milk. INDUCE VOMITING by sticking finger in throat. Lower the head so that the vomit will not re?enter the mouth and throat. If convulsions occur, do not restrain the victim, but do remove objects with which he (she) might injure himself (herself) or orient the victim to prevent him (her) from striking fixed heavy objects. If the convulsions cease, turn the victim on side or face down so that any fluid in the mouth will drain. Seek immediate medical attention.
Inhalation
Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention.
Serious Inhalation: Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth?to?mouth resuscitation. WARNING: It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth?to?mouth resuscitation when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.
Skin Contact
If the chemical got onto the clothed portion of the body, remove the contaminated clothes as quickly as possible, protecting your own hands and body. Place the victim under a deluge shower. If the chemical touches the victim's exposed skin, such as the hands: Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin with running water and non?abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin. COLD water may be used. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.
Eye Contact
Check for and remove any contact lenses. IMMEDIATELY flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. COLD water may be used. DO NOT use an eye ointment. Seek medical attention.
Other Information

Not available.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
SMALL SPILL: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in convenient waste disposal container.
LARGE SPILL: Poisonous solid. Stop leak if without risk. DO NOT get water inside container. DO NOT touch spilled material. Use water spray to reduce vapours. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Call for assistance on disposal.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Keep locked up. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk; evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. DO NOT ingest. DO NOT breathe dust. Avoid contact with eyes. Wear suitable protective clothing. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the label.
Conditions for safe storage
Keep container dry. Keep in a cool place. Ground all equipment containing material. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a cool, well?ventilated place. Highly toxic or infectious materials should be stored in a separate locked safety storage cabinet or room.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Splash goggles
Skin protection
Gloves
Body protection
Lab coat
Respiratory protection
Dust respirator. Be sure to use a MSHA/NIOSH approved respirator or equivalent. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate.
