TYPES OF
HAZARD/
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS/
SYMPTOMS
PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Highly flammable. Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Vapour/air mixtures are explosive.
Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!

  • INHALATION
  • Dizziness.
    Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN
  • Redness. Pain.
    Protective gloves.
    First rinse with plenty of water, then remove contaminated clothes and rinse again.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION

  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Evacuate danger area! Ventilation. Collect leaking liquid in sealable containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. Do NOT wash away into sewer (extra personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours).
    Separated from strong oxidants, strong bases, food and feedstuffs. Cool. Well closed. Keep in a well-ventilated room.
    Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
    UN Hazard Class: 3
    UN Subsidiary Risks: 6.1
    UN Packing Group: II
    Marine pollutant.
