SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES

INHALATION: Remove from exposure area to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Oxygen should be given by trained medical personnel only. If breathing has stopped, perform artificial resuscitation. Keep person warm and at rest. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Get medical attention immediately.
SKIN CONTACT: Remove contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash affected area with soap or mild detergent and large amounts of water until no evidence of product remains (at least 15-20 minutes). Get medical attention if irritation persists.
EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes immediately with large amounts of water or normal saline solution, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids until no evidence of substance remains (approximately 15-20 minutes). Get medical attention immediately.
INGESTION: Not an expected pathway in the industrial environment. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Do not induct vomiting. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hips to prevent aspiration. Get medical attention immediately.

NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: Antidote: No specific antidote. Treat symptomatically and supportively.


SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD: This product is not defined as flammable or combustible. Under certain conditions, when exposed to heat or flame, it may support combustion.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: In case of fire, utilize dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or foam. For larger fires, use water spray, fog or foam. Use an extinguishing agent suitable for type of surrounding fire and/or chemicals.
FIREFIGHTING: Move product containers from fire area if you can without risk. Do not use water directly on material; do not scatter the material. Apply cooling water to sides of containers that are exposed to flames until well after fire is out. Stay away from ends of tanks. Avoid breathing toxic vapors, keep upwind. Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire and/or chemicals. Avoid breathing vapors; keep upwind. Dike area to prevent runoff and contamination of water sources.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Thermal decomposition may release toxic and hazardous oxides of carbon and nitrogen.


SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

OCCUPATIONAL RELEASE: Keep unnecessary people away. Isolate hazard area and deny entry to avoid material dispersal. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Do not touch spilled material. For small spills, material should be absorbed into an inert material and placed into containers for later disposal. For larger spills, dike far ahead of spill for later disposal. Wash thoroughly after handling.


SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE

Observe all federal, state and local regulations when storing this product. Store in a tightly closed container. Store away from incompatible materials.


SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION

EXPOSURE LIMITS: No occupational exposure limits established by OSHA/ACGIH/NIOSH.
VENTILATION: Provide local exhaust ventilation system.
EYE PROTECTION: Wear safety glasses with side shields or safety goggles/shield to prevent contact with this product.
EMERGENCY WASH FACILITIES: Where there is any possibility that an employee’s eyes and/or skin may be exposed to this product, an eye wash fountain and safety shower should be available.
CLOTHING: Wear appropriate protective clothing and equipment to prevent skin contact with this product.
GLOVES: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent contact with this product.
RESPIRATOR: Under established uses and normal working conditions, respirator usage is not required.
