SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES

INHALATION: Remove from exposure area to fresh air immediately. If breathing has stopped, perform artificial resuscitation. Keep person warm and at rest. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Get medical attention immediately. Qualified medical personnel should consider administering oxygen.
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 chemical remains (at least 15-20 minutes). Get medical attention immediately.
EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes immediately with large amounts of water or normal saline solution, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids until no evidence of chemical remains (approximately 15-20 minutes). Get medical attention immediately.
INGESTION: Give large amounts of milk or water immediately. Do not give anything by mouth if person is unconscious or otherwise unable to swallow. If vomiting occurs, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Get medical attention immediately.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: Antidote:
No specific antidote. Treat symptomatically and supportively.

SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD: Negligible fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray, or regular foam. For larger fires, use water spray, fog, or regular foam (1993 Emergency Response Guidebook, RSPA 5800.6).
FIREFIGHTING: Move container(s) from fire area if you can do so without risk. Do not scatter spilled material with high-pressure water streams. Dike fire-control water for later disposal. Use agents suitable for type of surrounding fire. Avoid breathing vapors, keep upwind.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Thermal decomposition products may include toxic oxides of carbon and corrosive phenolics.

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

OCCUPATIONAL SPILL: Do not touch spilled material. Stop leak if you can do so without risk. For small spills, take up with sand or other absorbent material and place into clean, dry containers for later disposal. Move containers from spill area. For larger spills, dike far ahead of spill for later disposal. Deny entry to nonessential personnel and isolate hazard.
