water spray, carbon dioxide, dry extinguishing media, foam

Further information:

Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Collect contaminated extinguishing

water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Ensure adequate ventilation. Sources of ignition should be kept well clear.

For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder,

kieselguhr).

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Gas filter for

gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

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):

Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2,

corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)

nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness

fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness

chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:

Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Observe company internal

rules for skin protection.

Hazardous reactions:

Reacts with oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products:

hydrogen

slow decomposition

Disposal considerations

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.

Contaminated packaging:
