Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam. Do not use a direct
waterjet on burning material.

Product arising from burning: Carbon monoxide and unidentified organic compounds may be
formed during combsution.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Use goggles and chemically resistant gloves as needed. In
cases of major spill, a self-contained breathing apparatus
is recommended.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Clean up spillage promptly. Remove ignition sources, provide
adequate ventilation. Avoid excessive inhalation of
vapours. Gross spillages should be contained by use of sand
or inert powder and disposed of according to the local
regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: Good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices with
proper ventilation or exhaust and use of personal
protection. avoid skin contact, use chemically resistant
gloves, goggles or self contained breathing apparatus which
is recommended in some cases such as major spills.


Avoid elevated process temperatures where possible. When
possible use closed material transfer processes. Do not
drink, eat or smoke while handling. Respect good personal
hygiene.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry and ventilated area away from heat
sources and protected from light in tightly closed original
contanier. Avoid uncoated plastic and uncoated metal
