Eye Contact
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Other Information
Treat symptomatically and supportively.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or alcohol-resistant foam.
HAZCHEM

Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Carbon & Nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride gas. As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use proper PPE
Environmental precautions
Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment Section.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Sweep up or absorb material, then place into a suitable clean, dry, closed container for disposal. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid ingestion and inhalation
Conditions for safe storage
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep containers tightly closed.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
Facilities storing or utilising this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
