4. First Aid Measurements
First aid – Inhalation                           Supply fresh air.

First aid – Skin contact                         Wipe off and flush with soap and water.

First aid – Eye contact                          Rinse with water.

First aid – Ingestion                            Rinse mouth with water.


5. Fire Fighting Measurements
Extinguishing media                              Carbon dioxide, foam, dry powder or fine water spray. Water can
                                                 be used to cool fire exposed containers.
Protective equipment for fire fighting           A self-contained respirator and protective clothing should be
                                                 worn. Keep containers cool with water spray until well after the
                                                 fire is out. Determine the need to evacuate or isolate the area
                                                 according to your local emergency plan.
Hazardous combustion products                    Carbon oxides and traces of incompletely burned carbon
                                                 compounds. Formaldehyde. Phosphorus products. Sulphur
                                                 products.
Cleaning up                                      Scrape up and place in a container fitted with a lid.


6. Procedure in case of accidental release
Personal precautions                             Wear proper protective equipment.

Environmental precautions                        Do not allow large quantities to enter drains or surface waters.

Spillage                                         Scrape up and place in a container fitted with a lid. The spilled
                                                 product produces an extremely slippery surface.


7. Handling and storage
Handling                                         General ventilation is recommended. Local ventilation is
                                                 recommended. Avoid skin and eye contact.
Storage                                          Do not store with oxidizing agents. Keep container closed and
                                                 store away from water or moisture.
