Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local cir-cumstances and the surrounding environment. Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or car-bon dioxide.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during fire-fighting: In case of fire hazardous decomposition products may be produced such as carbon oxides.
Avoid generating dust; fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations, and in the presence of an ignition source is a potential dust explosion hazard.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.


Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Use personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions : Prevent product from entering drains.

Methods for cleaning up: Sweep up and shovel into suitable containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling: Avoid dust formation. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Avoid dust formation in confined areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Store in original container. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
