Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Advice for non-emergency personnel
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Advice for emergency responders
- Ventilate the area.
- Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet.
- Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.
- Cover the spreading liquid with foam in order to slow down the evaporation.
- Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.
- Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8.
Environmental precautions
- Should not be released into the environment.
- Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
- Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet.
- Soak up with inert absorbent material.
- Suitable material for picking up.
- Earth
- Dry sand
- Shovel into suitable container for disposal.
Reference to other sections
- Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8 of SDS

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Wear protective gloves/ protective clothing/ eye protection/ face protection.
- Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. No smoking.
