Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray jet
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry powder
Foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Standard procedure for chemical fires.

Advice for firefighters
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
In case of fire: wear a self contained respiratory apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective equipment.
Do not inhale vapours / aerosols
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil stretches of water, groundwater, drainage systems.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Take up mechanically or with an absorbent material.
Transfer into suitable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.

Suitable binder: diatomaceous earth, universal absorbent

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Provide for good ventilation if vapours/aerosols are formed.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
use respiratory equipment with suitable filter or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Hand protection
Glove material for example, butyl-rubber
Material thickness 0.5 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Glove material for example, Fluorinated rubber (Viton)
Material thickness 0.4 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Please observe that the daily duration of usage of a chemical protective glove is in practice far shorter due to the many influencing factors (e.g. temperature, mechanical strain on the glove material) than the permeation time determined acc. EN 374.
Eye protection
Safety glasses
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work.
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Protective measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
It should be defined in the work place in the form of a risk analysis according to directive 89/686/EEC and amendments.
If workplace exposure limits are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage, spilling, dust) the indicated respiratory protection should be used.
If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.
Do not breathe in vapours or aerosols.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.
Chemical stability
Stable under recommended storage conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions
Possibility of hazardous reactions No dangerous reactions known.
Conditions to avoid
Protect from moisture.
Incompatible materials
Strong oxidizing agents, Water
Hazardous decomposition products
Methanol in case of hydrolysis.
Alcohol formed by hydrolysis lowers the flash point of the product.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product
With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.
Uncleaned packaging
Packaging, that can not be reused after cleaning must be disposed or recycled in accordance with all federal, national and local regulations.
Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
Other countries: observe the national regulations.
Waste Key Number
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
