If swallowed: Rinse mouth. Immediately call a POISON CENTER or physician (P301+P310+P330).
SECTION 5 — FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Nonflammable, noncombustible solution, but a powerful oxidizer.
Strong oxidizing agent; dangerous fire and explosion risk when in contact with combustible materials.
In case of fire: Use a tri-class dry chemical fire extinguisher.
In case of major fire and large quantities: Evacuate area. Fight fire remotely due to the risk of explosions (P371+P380+P375).
