EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION
  • Cough.
    Ventilation.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN
  • Redness.
    Protective gloves.
    Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES
  • Redness.
    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.
    Give plenty of water to drink.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking liquid in sealable containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place.
