SECTION 4: Etch Thinners – Standard – First aid measures 

4.1. Description of first aid measures 

General information Remove affected person from source of contamination. Effects may be delayed. Keep affected person under observation. Get medical attention. CAUTION! First aid personnel 

must be aware of own risk during rescue! Move affected person to fresh air at once. Keep 

affected person away from heat, sparks and flames. If breathing stops, provide artificial 

respiration. Place unconscious person on the side in the recovery position and ensure 

breathing can take place. 

Inhalation Remove affected person from source of contamination. Move affected person to fresh air and keep warm and at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Keep affected person under 

observation. Get medical attention. Show this Safety Data Sheet to the medical personnel. 

Place unconscious person on their side in the recovery position and ensure breathing can 

take place. If breathing stops, provide artificial respiration. 

Ingestion Get medical attention immediately. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Give plenty of water to drink. Give milk instead of water if readily available. Keep affected person under observation. 

Do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not 

enter the lungs. Get medical attention immediately. Show this Safety Data Sheet to the 

medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Keep affected 

person away from heat, sparks and flames. Place unconscious person on their side in the 

recovery position and ensure breathing can take place. 

Skin contact Remove contaminated clothing immediately and wash skin with soap and water. Rinse with water. Use suitable lotion to moisturise skin. Get medical attention promptly if symptoms occur 

after washing. 

Eye contact Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Remove any contact lenses and open eyelids wide apart. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Do not rub eye. Get medical attention if any 

discomfort continues. 

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed 

General information The severity of the symptoms described will vary dependent on the concentration and the length of exposure. Effects may be delayed. Keep affected person under observation. 

Inhalation In case of overexposure, organic solvents may depress the central nervous system causing dizziness and intoxication, and at very high concentrations unconsciousness and death. 

Vapours may cause headache, fatigue, dizziness and nausea. Vapours in high concentrations 

are anaesthetic. Symptoms following overexposure may include the following: Headache. 

Fatigue. Dizziness. Central nervous system depression. 

Ingestion May cause discomfort if swallowed. May cause stomach pain or vomiting. May cause nausea, headache, dizziness and intoxication. May cause chemical burns in mouth and throat. Central 

nervous system depression. Fumes from the stomach contents may be inhaled, resulting in 

the same symptoms as inhalation. 

Skin contact Prolonged contact may cause redness, irritation and dry skin. 

Eye contact Irritation, burning, lachrymation, blurred vision after liquid splash. 4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed 

Notes for the doctor No specific recommendations. If in doubt, get medical attention promptly. SECTION 5: Firefighting measures 

5.1. Extinguishing media 

Suitable extinguishing media Extinguish with the following media: Foam, carbon dioxide or dry powder. Water. Use fire extinguishing media suitable for the surrounding fire. 

3/9

Unsuitable extinguishing media

spark, a hot surface or an ember. The product is highly flammable. Forms explosive mixtures 

with air. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread near ground and travel a considerable 

distance to a source of ignition and flash back. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread 

near ground and travel a considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back. 

Hazardous combustion products 

5.3. Advice for firefighters 

Protective actions during firefighting 

Special protective equipment for firefighters
