4. First Aid Measures

 
 INGESTION: If accidentally swallowed, dilute by drinking large
 quantities of water. Immediately contact poison control
 center or hospital emergency room for any other
 additional treatment directions.
 INHALATION: Remove to fresh air.
 SKIN: Flush with plenty of water. Remove contaminated
 clothing. Call a physician if irritation persists.
 EYES: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at
 least 15 minutes. Eyelids should be held apart during
 irrigation to insure water contact with entire surface of
 eyes and lids. Call a physician.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

 
 Autoignition Temperature Not available

 In case of fire, use water spray, dry chemical, foam or CO2. Use
 water to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

6. Accidental Release Measures

 
 Sweep (scoop) up and remove to a chemical disposal area. Prevent
 entry into natural bodies of water.

7. Handling and Storage

 

7.1 Handling

 
 Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
 practices. These practices include avoiding unnecessary exposure and
 removal of the material from eyes, skin and clothing.
 Wash thoroughly after handling. Always use appropriate Personal
 Protective Equipment (PPE).
 INHALATION: Avoid prolonged or repeated breathing of vapor.
 SKIN: Avoid contact with skin and clothing.
 EYES: Avoid contact with eyes.

7.2 Storage

 
 Store in a cool, dry place.
 Keep containers tightly closed.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

 

8.1 Exposure Controls

 
 ENGINEERING CONTROLS: The following exposure control techniques may
 be used to effectively minimize employee exposure: local exhaust
 ventilation, enclosed system design, process isolation and remote
 control in combination with appropriate use of personal protective
 equipment and prudent work practices. These techniques may not
 necessarily address all issues pertaining to your operations. We,
 therefore, recommend that you consult with experts of your choice to
 determine whether or not your programs are adequate.
 If airborne contaminants are generated when the material is heated or
 handled, sufficient ventilation in volume and air flow patterns should
 be provided to keep air contaminant concentration levels below
 acceptable criteria.

8.2 Personal Protection

 
 Where air contaminants can exceed acceptable criteria, use NIOSH/MSHA
 approved respiratory protection equipment. Respirators should be
 selected based on the form and concentration of contaminants in air
 in accordance with OSHA laws and regulations or other applicable
 standards or guidelines, including ANSI standards regarding
 respiratory protection. Use goggles if contact is likely. Wear
 impervious gloves as required to prevent skin contact.
