Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, carbon dioxide

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Under certain conditions in case of fire other hazardous combustion products may be generated.

Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Environmental precautions
Discharge into the environment must be avoided.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr).
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section "Exposure Controls/Personal Protection" and "Disposal sonsiderations".

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from oxidants. Segregate from strong acids.
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.

Storage stability:
Storage duration: 24 Months
May yellow after lengthy storage.
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

Specific end use(s)
For the relevant identified use(s) listed in Section 1 of the Safety Data Sheet the advice mentioned in this section here is to be observed.

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection required in case of exceptional circumstances (e.g.: accidental release, exceeding the occupational exposure limit)

Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Eye protection:
In order to satisfy general industrial hygiene rules safety glasses with side-shields (e.g. EN 166) are recommended.

Body protection:
No body protection required if used for intended purpose and satisfying generally accepted industrial hygiene rules.

General safety and hygiene measures
Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. Gloves must be inspected regularly and prior to each use. Replace if necessary (e.g. pinhole leaks). Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
