First-Aid measures
Inhalation : Re move from e xposure . Ke e p warm and at re st. If the re is difficulty in bre athing, give oxyge n. If bre athing stops or
shows signs of failing, give artificial re spiration. Do not use mouth to mouth ve ntilation. Obtain me dical atte ntion
urgently. Remove from exposure.
Ingestion : Wash out mouth with water. Have victim drink 240-300ml of water to dilute stomach contents. Obtain medical
attention. Do not induce vomiting.
Skin contact : Immediately flood the skin with large quantities of water, preferably under a shower. Remove contaminated clothing as
washing proceeds. Contaminated clothing should be washed or dry-cleaned before re-use. Obtain medical attention if
blistering occurs or redness persists.
Eye Contact : Immediately flood the eye with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes, holding the eye open.
