EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE!

INHALATION Blue lips or finger nails. Blue skin. Dizziness. Headache.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration if indicated. Refer for medical attention.
SKIN Blue lips or fingernails. Blue skin (further see Inhalation).
Protective gloves.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
EYES
Safety spectacles, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
INGESTION Blue lips or fingernails. Blue skin. Dizziness. Headache. Laboured breathing.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Sweep spilled substance into clean containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles).
Separated from strong oxidants, acids. Well closed.
