SECTION 4 — FIRST AID MEASURES
Immediately call a POISON CENTER or physician (P311).
If inhaled: Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing (P304+P340).
If in eyes: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contacts if present and easy to do so. Continue rinsing (P305+P351+P338). If on skin or hair: Immediately remove all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water (P303+P361+P353). Wash contaminated clothing before reuse (P363).
If swallowed: Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting (P301+P330+P331).
SECTION 5 — FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Noncombustible liquid. Will react with water or steam to produce toxic and corrosive fumes.
Strong oxidizer; heat of reaction may ignite combustibles on contact.
When heated to decomposition, may emit toxic fumes.
In case of fire: Use a tri-class dry chemical fire extinguisher.
