Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media Water spray, fog or mist, foam, powder, carbon dioxide. Unsuitable extinguishing media Waterjet. Special fire fighting procedures Treat as an oil fire. Water spray may be ineffective unless used by experienced fire fighters. Wear self contained breathing apparatus.
Unusual fire hazards Non-flammable. If involved in a fire it will support combustion and may decompose to give off toxic materials. Do not breathe fumes. Hazardous combustion products Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrous gases.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions For personal protection see Section 8. Environmental precautions Should not be allowed to enter drains or water courses. Dispose of this material and its container at hazardous or special waste collection point. Methods for cleaning up Contain spill with inert material. Place in container for disposal according to local regulations. Cover the remainder with inert absorbent (e.g. vermiculite) for disposal. In
case of large spillages contact the local authority.

Handling and storage

Handling The usual precautions for handling chemicals should be observed. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Avoid spilling, skin and eye contact.
