Section 4: First Aid Measures

Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. Make him blow his nose and
gargle. Refer to medical attention immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If
breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth. In case of large amount, drink large quantity of water and refer to
medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothes, rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
Exposure to molten resin may cause thermal burns. Seek medical advice.
Eye contact: In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water for 15
minutes. Process vapors may irritate eyes. Seek medical advice.

Section 5: Fire Control Measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
Specific hazards arising from the chemical (e.g. hazardous combustion products): During a
fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion:
Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ketones, acrolein, aldehydes, and unidentified organic
compounds. Dense smoke is emitted when burned without sufficient oxygen.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire-fighters: Special protective equipment
for fire fighters. Wear positive pressure self contained breathing apparatus and protective fire
fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves).
If protective equipment is not available or not use, fight fire from a protected location or safe
Fire fighting procedures: Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry. Soak
thoroughly with water to cool and prevent re-ignition. Cool surroundings with water to localize
fire zone.
