4. FIRST AID MEASURES


INHALATION: If adverse effects occur, remove to uncontaminated area. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. If breathing is difficult, oxygen should be administered by qualified personnel. Get immediate medical attention.

SKIN CONTACT: If bonding occurs, immerse the bonded surfaces in warm soapy water. Peel or roll the surfaces apart using a blunt edge, such as a spatula or spoon handle. Do not pull surfaces apart with a direct opposing action. If burns occur, treat as thermal burns. Get medical attention, if needed.

EYE CONTACT: If bonding to tissues occurs, wash with large amounts of warm water. Cover both eyes with sterile, dry bandages. The eye will open without further action. Do not pull surfaces apart with a direct opposing action. If burns occur, treat as thermal burns. Get medical attention.

INGESTION: Wet lips with water. Peel or roll the surfaces apart using a blunt edge, such as a spatula or spoon handle. Do not pull surfaces apart with a direct opposing action. If a lump forms in the mouth, turn head to side. If burns occur, treat as thermal burns. Get medical attention.

NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: For inhalation, consider oxygen. Mineral oil, vegetable oil, or petroleum jelly may help soften the bonding between skin surfaces. For skin contact, consider acetone or nitromethane.


5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES


FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Slight fire hazard.

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: carbon dioxide, regular dry chemical, regular foam, water

FIRE FIGHTING: Move container from fire area if it can be done without risk. Avoid inhalation of material or combustion by-products. Stay upwind and keep out of low areas.

AUTOIGNITION: >1112 F (>600 C)
FLAMMABILITY CLASS (OSHA): IIIB

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS:
Thermal decomposition or combustion products: cyanides, oxides of carbon, oxides of nitrogen


6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES


OCCUPATIONAL RELEASE:
Stop leak if possible without personal risk. Small spills: Absorb with sand or other non-combustible material. Collect spilled material in appropriate container for disposal. Notify Local Emergency Planning Committee and State Emergency Response Commission for release greater than or equal to RQ (U.S. SARA Section 304). If release occurs in the U.S. and is reportable under CERCLA Section 103, notify the National Response Center at (800)424-8802 (USA) or (202)426-2675 (USA).


7. HANDLING AND STORAGE


STORAGE: Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Keep container tightly closed. Store in a well-ventilated area. Avoid contact with water or moisture. Store between 16 C and 38 C. A hazardous build-up of pressure could result due to a reaction with water producing carbon dioxide gas if contaminated containers are resealed. Do not reseal contaminated containers. Reseal uncontaminated containers that are free of moisture only after placing under a nitrogen blanket. Do not store in containers made of copper, copper alloys, or galvanized surfaces. See original container for storage recommendations. Keep separated from incompatible substances.

HANDLING: Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin or eyes. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not get in eyes.
