4. First Aid Measures

Exposure Route Symptom Treatment

Inhalation Mild irritation of nose & throat
Remove from exposure, rest and keep warm. In severe cases, or if recovery is not rapid or complete, seek medical attention
Skin Contact Mild irritation Drench the skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before re-use. If large areas of the skin are damaged or if irritation persists seek medical attention
Eye Contact Mild irritation Irrigate thoroughly with water for at least 10 minutes.
Obtain medical attention Ingestion Mild irritation of gastro-intestinal tract
Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. If patient is conscious, give water to drink. If patient feels unwell seek medical attention.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

Suitable Extinguishers Alcohol-resistant or all-purpose-type foam. Use carbon dioxide or dry powder for small fires only
Unsuitable Extinguishers Do not direct a solid stream of water or foam into hot burning pools; as this may cause frothing and increase the intensity of a fire
Hazardous Combustion Products Oxides of carbon including aldehydes Special Equipment for fire Fighting
Self contained breathing apparatus
