Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:
Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry powder. Foam. Water spray.
UNSUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE:
In the event of fire the following can be released: Carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide (CO2).

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Move containers
from fire area if you can do it without risk Dike and collect water used to fight fire. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURE:
Keep away from heat and sparks - No Smoking. Wear suitable protective clothing. Ensure adequate ventilation. In case of
insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS:
Do not discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater. Should not be released into the environment.

METHODS AND MATERIAL FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP:
Clean-up methods - small spillage Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand,
earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section
13). Clean-up methods - large spillage Sweep up or vacuum up spillage and collect in suitable container for disposal. The
product should not be allowed to enter drains, water courses or the soil.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Provide good ventilation of working area (local echaust
ventilation if necessary). If workplace exposure limits are exceeded, respiratory protection approved for this particular job
must be worn. Keep container tightly closed. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATIBILITIES:
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Store in original container. Store in accordance with local regulations. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs.
Keep at temperatures < 50°C.

Stability and reactivity

CONDITIONS TO AVOID:
This is a combustable liquid. Release flammable vapors at high temperatures. May emit toxic irritating gases upon thermal
decomposition. Avoid open flame, spark, ignition sources and heat. The use of explosion-proof equipment is recommended
and may be required.

REACTIVITY:
No data available.

CHEMICAL STABILITY:
Stable under recommended storage conditions.

POSSIBILITY OF HAZARDOUS REACTIONS:
Strong acids and strong bases.

INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS:
Strong acids and strong bases.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:
None reasonably foreseeable. Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions. During a fire, smoke may
contain the original material, in addition to unidentified toxic and/or irritating compounds. Hazardous
decomposition/combustion products may include and are not limited to: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and metal
compounds.

Disposal considerations

WASTE TREATMENT METHODS:

EWC WASTE CODE: 06 03 14 - Solid salts and solutions other than those mentioned in 06 03 11 and 06 03 13.
15 01 10* - Packaging containing residues of or contaminated by dangerous substances.
15 02 02* - Absorbents, filter materials (including oil filters not otherwise specified), wiping cloths, protective clothing conta minated by dangerous substances.

WASTE FROM RESIDUES / UNUSED PRODUCTS:
Contact manufacturer. Dispose of as special waste in compliance with local and national regulations. The materials resulting
from clean-up operations of a spill may be hazardous and, therefore, subject to specific regulations. Package, store, transport
and dispose of all clean-up materials and any contaminated equipment in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local
regulations. Shipments of waste materials may be subject to manifesting requirements per applicable regulations. Appropriate
disposal will depend on the nature of the waste and should be performed by competent and properly permitted contractors.
Ensure that all responsible federal, state and local agencies receive proper notification of spill and disposal methods.

CONTAMINATED PACKAGING:
Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed as special waste in compliance with local and national regulations.
