EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION

  • Ventilation.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES

  • 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. Wash hands before eating.
    Rinse mouth. Rest.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable metal containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place.
    Separated from strong oxidants.
