ingest. Do not breathe gas/fumes/ vapour/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

Storage:

Flammable materials should be stored in a separate safety storage cabinet or room. Keep away from heat. Keep

away from sources of ignition. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Ground all

equipment containing material. A refrigerated room would be preferable for materials with a flash point lower than

37.8C (100F).
