After Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air; if breathing is difficult, give oxygen; if breathing stops, give artificial respiration
After skin contact: flush with copious amounts of water; remove contaminated clothing and shoes; call a physician
After eye contact: check for and remove contact lenses; flush with copious amounts of water; assure adequate flushing by separating the eyelids with fingers; call a physician
After swallowing: if swallowed, wash out mouth with copious amounts of water; call a physician

Suitable extinguishing agents: water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder or foam
Protective equipment: wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes
Unusual fire hazard: may emit toxic fumes under fire conditions such as carbon monoxide, etc.

Person-related safety precautions: cordon off area of spill; wear self-contained breathing apparatus, protective clothing and heavy rubber gloves
Measures for cleaning/collecting: absorb solutions with finely- powdered liquid-binding material (diatomite, universal binders); decontaminate surfaces and equipment by scrubbing with alcohol; dispose of contaminated material according to Section 13

Information for safe handling: avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing; material may be an irritant
Storage: store solid and solutions at -20 ºC

Personal protective equipment as follows:
