Lower exp. limit, %
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Extinguishing media: Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. In case of fire use water fog, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or alcohol type foam.
This chemical is probably combustible.

Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause defatting and dermatitis.
Ingestion of large amounts may cause gastrointestinal irritation.
May cause respiratory tract irritation.
Causes skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin. Chronic exposure may result in sensitization.
Causes eye irritation.
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
