- Victim to lie down in the recovery position, cover and keep him warm.

- Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed.

- If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of eye contact

- Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.

- Immediate medical attention is required.

In case of skin contact

- Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

- Wash off with soap and water.

- If symptoms persist, call a physician.

If swallowed

Special protective actions for fire-fighters

-       Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

-       Fire fighters must wear fire resistant personnel protective equipment.

-       In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

-       Protect intervention team with a water spray as they approach the fire.

-       Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition.

-       Keep containers and surroundings cool with water spray.

-       Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet.

-       Flood the product with water.

-       Avoid propagating the fire when directing the extinguishing agent as a jet onto the surface of the burning liquid.

-       Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Advice for non-emergency personnel

-       Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Advice for emergency responders

-       Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

-       Wear self-contained breathing apparatus in confined spaces, in cases where the oxygen level is depleted, or in case of significant emissions.

-       Ventilate the area.

Environmental precautions

-       Should not be released into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

-       Dam up.

-       Pick up with sand or oil absorbing material.

-       Prevent product from entering drains.

-       Allow to evaporate.


-       Soak up with inert absorbent material.

-       Keep in properly labelled containers.

-       Store in a place accessible by authorized persons only.

-       Treat recovered material as described in the section "Disposal considerations".

-       Flush with plenty of water.

For personal protection measures; see section on “exposure controls/ personal protection”
