Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

- Suitable : Water spray - Foam - Multi-purpose powders - carbon dioxide (CO2)

- Not suitable : Strong water jet

Specific hazards : combustibe - On heating or during combustion : Toxic gases or vapours are released.

Specific fire fighting methods : Do not dispose of fire-fighting water in the environment

Protection of fire-fighters : Self-contained breathing apparatus - Boots, gloves, goggles

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions :

- Do not breathe vapours.

- Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

- Protection equipment : appropriate gloves - safety glasses - suitable protective clothing.

- Stop the leak. Turn leaking containers leak-side up to prevent the escape of liquid.

Environmental precautions : Dam up. Prevent product from entering drains.

Recovery : Contain spillage, soak up with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and transfer to a container for disposal according to local / national regulations. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

- Prevent the product from spreading into the environment

- For a large spillage, contain the spillage by bunding.

Methods for cleaning up :

- Prohibited : Do not spray water into packaging which has been damaged or overturned - Do not put the spilled material back into the original container for re-use.

- Recovery : Absorb the product onto porous material. Recover the product by vacuuming/shovelling or sweeping. Collect up the product and place it in a spare container suitable labelled . Keep the recovered product for subsequent disposal.

- Cleaning/Decontamination : Wash non -recoverable remainder with large amounts of water. Recover the cleaning water for subsequent disposal.

- Disposal : Dispose of all contaminated materials in accordance with current regulations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Enginnering measures : Ensure good ventilation of work station

Control parameters :

Exposure limit values (Human Health) :

- Occupational  exposure limit values (France) :

   Methanol : VME : 260 mg/m3 (200 ppm) - VLE : 1300 mg/m3 (1000 ppm)

- ACGIH Threshold values (USA / A.C.G.I.H.) :

   Methanol : TLV (TWA) : 200 ppm - TLV (STEL) : 250 ppm. Risk of percutaneous absorption

- Occupational exposure limit values :

   Methanol : Exposure limit (8 hours) : 260 mg/m3 (200 ppm). Risk of percutaneous absorption.


Surveillance procedures : Keep the atmospheric concentration below the occupational exposure limits

 Personal protective equipment

 - Respiratory protection : If exposure is likely to exceed the occupational exposure limit : wear suitable respiratory protective equipment

 - Hand protection : The selection of gloves must take into account the extent and duration of use at the workstation. Use suitable chemical-resistant protective gloves (compliant with Standard EN 374-1)

 - Eye protection : Goggles

 - Skin and body protection : Protective clothing with elasticated cuffs and closed neck

 - Selection criteria : No specific/particular action required for this product. Comply with good occupational hygiene practice.


Collective emergency : safety shower

- Equipment : Eye founyain.

- Hygien measures : Wash as often as necessary. Do not eat or drink in the workplace      

Stability and reactivity

Stability : Stable under normal conditions of use

Hazardous reactions :

- Conditions to avoid : No dangerous reactions known under normal conditions of use

- Materials to avoid : Strong oxidizing agents

- Hazardous decomposition products : On combustion or on dermal decomposition (pyrolysis) releases : Carbon oxides (CO + CO2)

Disposal considerations
