Potential health effects
Primary routes of exposure: Routes of entry for solids and liquids include eye and skin contact, ingestion and inhalation. Routes of entry for gases include inhalation and eye contact. Skin contact may be a route of entry for liquified gases.
If inhaled: Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air. If necessary, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Seek medical attention if necessary.
If on skin: After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water and soap. Consult a doctor if skin irritation persists.
If in eyes: In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately for at least 15 minutes with plenty of water. Immediate medical attention required.
If swallowed: No hazards anticipated. If large quantities are ingested, seek medical advice.
Additional information: Use extinguishing measures to suit surroundings.
Hazards during fire-fighting: No particular hazards known.
