4. FIRST AID MEASURES

In case of eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Get medical attention immediately.
In case of skin contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Use a mild soap if available. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.
If swallowed: Rinse mouth. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
If inhaled: Remove to fresh air.Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Protection of first-aiders: If potential for exposure exists refer to Section 8 for specific personal protective equipment.
Notes to physician: Treat symptomatically.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: See Section 11 for more detailed information on health effects and symptoms.

5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known.
Specific hazards during fire fighting: Not flammable or combustible
Hazardous combustion products: Decomposition products may include the following materials:
 - Carbon oxides
 - Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
 - Sulfur oxides
 - Oxides of phosphorus
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Use personal protective equipment.
Specific extinguishing methods: Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations. In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Avoid inhalation, ingestion and contact with skin and eyes. When workers are facing concentrations above the exposure limit they must use appropriate certified respirators. Ensure clean-up is conducted by trained personnel only. Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8.
Environmental precautions: Do not allow contact with soil, surface or ground water.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Stop leak if safe to do so. Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section 13). Flush away traces with water. For large spills, dike spilled material or otherwise contain material to ensure runoff does not reach a waterway. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Advice on safe handling: Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Mixing this product with acid or ammonia releases chlorine gas.
