EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Sore throat.
    Ventilation.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. 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
  • Weakness.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.
    Separated from strong oxidants. Dry. Keep in a well-ventilated room.
