FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 63C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 63C use a closed system, ventilation, and explosion-proof electrical equipment.

EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat. Dullness. Nausea.
Closed system.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
