Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Hot (molten product: Water spray mist or foam, carbon dioxide (CO2) or dry powder.
Cold (solid) product: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
DO NOT use water jet on molten material due to danger of violent explosion and scattering of material, caused by steam generation below material surface.
Special protective equipment
Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions.
Special exposure hazards
After prolonged contact with highly porous materials, this product may spontaneously combust.

Accidental release measures

Environmental cleanup procedures
Hot (molten) product: Allow to solidify, use mechanical handling equipment. Prevent product from entering drains.
Cold (solid) product: Collect as much as possible in a clean container for (preferably) reuse or disposal. Sweep up the remainder with a dustpan and brush. Prevent the generation of dust.
