female, Reproductive system/toxin/male [None.]. The substance is toxic to blood, liver, mucous membranes, upper respiratory

tract, skin, central nervous system (CNS), eye, lens or cornea. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce

target organs damage.

 

Section 4: First Aid Measures

Eye Contact:

Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15

minutes. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin Contact:

In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing

and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get

medical attention immediately.

Serious Skin Contact:

Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek medical attention.

Inhalation:

If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical

attention.

Serious Inhalation:

Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If

breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek medical

attention.

material. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed. Call for assistance on disposal. Be careful

that the product is not present at a concentration level above TLV. Check TLV on the MSDS and with local authorities.

 

Section 7: Handling and Storage

Precautions:

Keep locked up.. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Ground all equipment containing material. Do

not ingest. Do not breathe gas/fumes/ vapor/spray. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. If

ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the label. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away

from incompatibles such as oxidizing agents, reducing agents, acids, alkalis.

Storage:

Store in a segregated and approved area. Keep container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed and

sealed until ready for use. Avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark or flame).

 

Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
