EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough.
    Avoid inhalation of fine dust and mist. Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • Redness. Pain.
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Safety goggles, face shield, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Burning sensation. Cough.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
