EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION

  • Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • Redness.
    Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES
  • Redness.
    Safety goggles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Dizziness. Nausea. Vomiting.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Rest. Refer for medical attention.
