Fire-fighting measures

General information:
Cool endangered containers with water.
Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray, extinguishing powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
Water jet.
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products, resulting gases:
At low oxygen level organic decomposition products.
Special protective equipment for fire fighting:
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Keep unprotected persons away. Wear personal protection equipment. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Environmental precautions:
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil. Dispose of in prescribed marked containers. Observe local/state/federal regulations.
Methods for cleaning up:
Absorb with a liquid binding material such as diatomaceous earth and dispose of according to local/state/federal regulations. Contain larger amounts and pump up into suitable containers.
Eliminate all sources of ignition.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Spilled substance increases risk of slipping.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Keep away from sources of ignition and do not smoke. In case of fire remove container out of endangered area. Cool endangered containers with water. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charging. Vapours may form in closed rooms with air mixtures, leading to explosion in the presence of sources of ignition, even in empty, uncleaned vessels.
Storage:
Store in the original container. Keep container dry and tightly closed. Store cool.
