Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes severe eye burns.
Skin: Causes skin irritation.
Ingestion: May be fatal if swallowed. May cause central nervous system effects.
Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation.
Chronic: No information found.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid imme diately. Do NOT allow victim to rub eyes or keep eyes closed.
Skin: Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
Ingestion: If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures


General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Water reactive. Substance may react with water, and may release corrosive and/or toxic gases. Containers may explode when heated. Vapors are flammable above 83C (182F) in vessels of adequate size. Combustible liquid and vapor.
Extinguishing Media: Do NOT use water directly on fire. Do NOT get water inside containers. Use dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures


General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Remove all sources of ignition. Provide ventilation. Do not get water inside containers.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage


Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with adequate ventilation. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not ingest or inhale.
Storage: Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep refrigerated. (Store below 4C/39F.)

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection


Engineering Controls: Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
