Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least
15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid
immediately. Do NOT allow victim to rub or keep eyes closed.
Skin: Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least
15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if
irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse.

oxygen. Get medical aid. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Section 5 - Fire
Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Dike and collect water used
to fight fire. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated
by thermal decomposition or combustion. Vapors may be heavier than air. They can
spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
Extinguishing Media: Substance is noncombustible; use agent
most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Wash area with soap and water.
Wear a self contained breathing apparatus and appropriate Personal protection.
(See Exposure Controls, Personal Protection section). Avoid generating dusty
conditions. Carefully scoop up and place into appropriate disposal container.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove
contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation.
Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
Storage: Store in a tightly
closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
incompatible substances. Keep away from strong acids.
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
