Section 4 : First Aid Measures

Eye Contact Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15minutes. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention.

Skin Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Remove contaminatedclothing and shoes. Cold water may be used.Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention.

Serious Skin Contact :Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek medical attention.

InhalationIf inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medicalattention.

Ingestion : Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconsciousperson. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar,tie, belt or waistband.

Section 6 : Accidental Release Measures

Small Spill : Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water onthe contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements.

Large Spill : Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on thecontaminated surface and allow to evacuate through the sanitary system.

Section 7 : Handling and Storage

Precautions : Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk, evaporate the residue undera fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. Do not breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing. In case ofinsufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. If you feel unwell, seek medical attention and show the label whenpossible. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from incompatibles such as oxidizing agents, acids, moisture.
