Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Specific methods: Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid dust formation. Do not breathe vapours. Ensure adequate ventilation.

Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater. Avoid dust formation.

Methods for cleaning up: Pick up mechanically.

Handling and storage

Take note of Directive 98/24/EC on the protection of the health and safety of workers from the risks related to chemical agents at work. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. If workplace exposure limits are exceeded, respiratory protection approved for this particular job must be worn.

Technical measures/precautions:
Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary).

Storage: Council Directive 96/82/EC on the control fo major-accident hazards involving dangerous substances (SEVESO II Directive).
