Acetic Acid Butyl Ester Section 4. First Aid Measures
Eye Contact Skin Contact

Page: 2/6

IMMEDIATELY flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. COLD water may be used. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin. COLD water may be used. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention. DO NOT induce vomiting. Examine the lips and mouth to ascertain whether the tissues are damaged, a possible indication that the toxic material was ingested; the absence of such signs, however, is not conclusive. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention. Not available.
