4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water.
Inhalation
If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration.
Skin Contact
Wash off with soap and plenty of water.
Eye Contact
Flush eyes with water as a precaution.
Other Information
Unexcreted particles may be phagocytized by cells of the reticuloendothelial system and deposited in
storage sites in the liver, spleen, lung, and bone marrow resulting in the storage disease thesaurosis.
Severity and symptoms depend on storage site and nature of the particle. Pathological changes are not
necessarily attributed to the thesaurosis, but in some cases an inflammation or granulomatoma have
occurred.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
HAZCHEM
Not available.
