Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, foam, dry powder or carbon dioxide may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon and
nitrogen together with hydrogen chloride gas and some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear full protective clothing (see 2.3.1). Avoid dust
formation. Sweep up spill and transfer to labelled
containers and dispose of by incineration in accordance with
local regulations. Wash spill site with plenty of water. Do
not allow washings to enter water supplies.

length gloves (eg. 14 inch PVC gauntlets), paper suits,
safety glasses (BS2092) and a dust mask should be worn.

hoods at all times when they are in the production area.

Keep personal exposure below 10 mg m-3 8-hour TWA for total
inhalable dust and 5 mg m-3 8-hour TWA for total respirable
dust. Where dust generation cannot be avoided, provide and
use local exhaust ventilation. Where local exhaust
ventilation is impracticable, wear an approved face mask.
