Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media:

Water, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam, Dry powder

- Unsuitable extinguishing media:

For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.

- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:


Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.

Fire may cause evolution of:

Hydrogen fluoride

- Advice for fire fighter:

Special protective equipment for firefighters

Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.

Further information

Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Advice for non-emergency personnel: Avoid substance contact. Avoid inhalation of dusts. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.

Advice for emergency responders: Protective equipment see section "Exposure controls/personal protection".


- Environmental precautions:

Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.


- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills.

Observe possible material restrictions (see sections "Handling and storage" and "stability and reactivity").

Take up dry. Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area. Avoid generation of dusts.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling:

Advice on safe handling: Observe label precautions.

Hygiene measures: Change contaminated clothing. Wash hands after working with substance.


- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Tightly closed. Dry. Store at +15 °C to +25 °C. Store in original container.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

- Engineering measures: Technical measures and appropriate working operations should be given priority over the use of personal protective equipment.


- Personal protective equipment: Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled and must meet the specifications of a standard EN/ISO/DIN. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.


Hygiene measures

Change contaminated clothing. Preventive skin protection recommended. Wash hands after working with substance.


Eye/face protection: Safety glasses


Hand protection

full contact:

      Glove material: Nitrile rubber

      Glove thickness: 0.11 mm

      Break through time:  480 min

splash contact:

      Glove material: Nitrile rubber

      Glove thickness: 0.11 mm

      Break through time:  480 min


The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374, for example KCL 741 Dermatril® L (full contact), KCL 741 Dermatril® L (splash contact).

This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet, supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet:


Protective measures: Protective clothing


Respiratory protection:required when dusts are generated.


Recommended filter type: Filter P 1 (acc. to DIN 3181) for solid particles of inert substances.

The entrepeneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer. These measures have to be properly documented.


- Environmental exposure controls.

General advice: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
