General Advice
Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance. Move out of dangerous area.
If inhaled
If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.
In case of skin contact
Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a physician.
In case of eye contact
Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician. Continue rinsing eyes during

Contain spillage. Neutralize spill with soda ash or lime. Carefully place material into clean dry container and cover.
Flush spill area with water. Avoid creating dust.
6.4 Reference to other sections
For disposal see section 13.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Avoid rough handling.
Avoid exposing sensor(s) to rapid changes in pressure.
Avoid puncturing or damaging sensor membrane(s).
In case of sensor leakage see section 6.
