the eyes by separating the eyelids with fingers. Remove contacts if present and easy to do. Continue
rinsing. Get medical attention, if irritation or symptom s of overexposure persists.
Immediately wash skin with so ap and plenty of water.
Get medical attention if irritation devel ops or persists.
If inhaled, remove to fresh a ir. If not breathing, give artificial respiration or give oxygen by trained
personnel. Seek immediate medical attention.

SECTION 6 : ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions: Evacuate area and ke ep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering the spill area. Use
proper personal protective equipment as listed in Section 8.
Environmental Precautions: Avoid runoff into storm sewers, ditches, and waterways.
Methods for containment: Contain spills with an inert absorbent material such as soil or san d. Prevent from spreading by
covering, diking or other means . Provide ventilation.
Methods for cleanup: Clean up spills immediately observing precautions in the protective equipment section. Place into a
suitable container for disposal. Provide ventilation. After rem oval, flush spill area with soap and water
to remove trace residue.
SECTION 7 : HANDLING and STORAGE
Handling: Use with adequat e ventilation. Avoid breathing vapor an d contact with eyes, skin and clothing.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area away from sources of heat, combustible materials, and
incompatible substances. Keep container tightly closed when not in use.
Hygiene Practices: Wash thoroughly after han dling. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid inhaling vapor or mist.
SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering Controls: Use appropriate en gineering control such as process enclosures, local e xha ust ventilation, or other
engineering controls to control airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. Good general
ventilation should be sufficient to control airborne levels. Where such system s are not effective wear
suitable personal protective equipment, which perform s satisfactorily and meets O SHA or other
recognized standards. Consult with local procedures for selection, training, inspection and maintenance
of the personal protective equipment.
Eye/Face Protection: Wear appropriate protective glasses or splash goggles as described by 29 CFR 1910.133, O SHA eye
and face protection regulation, or the European standard EN 166.
Skin Protection Description: Chemical-resistant gloves and chemical goggles, face-shield and synthetic apron or coveralls should be
us ed to prevent contact with eyes, skin or clothing.
Respiratory Protection: A NIO SH approved a ir-purifying respirator with an organic vapor cartridge or canister m ay be
permissible under certain circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed
exposure limits. Protection provided by a ir purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive pressure a ir
supplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled re lease, expo sure levels are not known,
or any other circumstances where a ir purifying respirators m ay not provide adequate protection.
