Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media : Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Unsuitable extinguishing media : High volume water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting:
Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Use personal protective equipment.
Further information: Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear respiratory protection. Wear personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions
Avoid subsoil penetration. Do not allow material to contaminate ground water system. Do not contaminate water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities. Do not let product enter drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Remove mechanically and with care (e.g. with clean polyethylene plastic shovel). Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).

Other information
Never add other substances or waste material to product residue. Offer surplus and non-recyclable solutions to a licensed disposal company

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling: see personal protection.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Keep container tightly closed. No smoking.

Further information on storage conditions:
Avoid impurities (e.g. rust, dust, ash), risk of decomposition.
Advice on common storage: Store apart from other dangerous and incompatible substances.
Storage temperature: < 20 °C
Other data: liquid up to -30 °C
