Section 4 First Aid Measures
Inhalation If product is inhaled, move exposed individual to fresh air. If individual is not
breathing, begin artificial respiration immediately and obtain medical attention.
Eye Contact If product enters eyes, wash eyes gently under running water for 15 minutes or
longer, making sure that the eyelids are held open. If pain or irritation occur, obtain
medical attention.
Skin Contact In case of skin contact, flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes.
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. If pain or irritation occur, obtain medical
attention.
Ingestion If ingested, wash mouth out with water. If irritation or discomfort occurs, seek medical
attention.
