Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray, alcohol resistant foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), dry extinguishing powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High power water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
On intense heating explosive mixture with air possible (dusts).
Emission of irritating and toxic fumes and gases.
In case of fire may be liberated: Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical protective clothing.

Additional information:
Use water spray jet to protect personnel and to cool endangered containers. Suppress gases/vapours/mists with water spray jet. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. Do not allow entering drains or surface water.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Provide adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes. Use personal protection equipment. Avoid dust formation.
In the immediate working surroundings there must be: eye shower

Environmental precautions:
Do not allow to enter into soil/subsoil. Do not allow to enter into surface water or drains.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Take up carefully when dry. For larger quantities: Use suitable dust binding material. Collect in closed and suitable containers for disposal. Clean up affected area.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:
Provide adequate ventilation. Avoid dust formation. Do not breathe dust. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes. Use personal protection equipment.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Usual measures for fire prevention.

Further information on handling:
Keep container tightly closed. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice: Do not eat, drink, and smoke. Wash hands before break and after work.

Requirements for storage rooms and vessels:
Keep away from heat. Protect from sunlight. Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect from oxygen.

Hints on joint storage
For storage in a common place refer to the respective regulations. Do not store together with oxidising agents.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
Provide adequate ventilation.

Protective and hygiene measures:
When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands before breaks and after work. Remove contaminated, saturated clothing immediately.

Eye/face protection:
Wear tightly fitting safety goggles. (DIN EN 166)

Hand protection:
Tested protective gloves must be worn (DIN EN 374). The quality of the protective gloves resistant to chemicals must be chosen as a function ofthe specific working place concentration and quantity of hazardous substances. Recommended glove material: Nitrile rubber. Minimal thickness of the glove material for penetration time 8 h: 0,11 mm

Skin protection:
Wear suitable chemical resistant protective clothing. Choose suitable personal protection equipment dependent on substance concentration and amount specific for workplace. Chemical resistance should be clarified with the supplier.

Respiratory protection:
The selection of appropriate respiratory protection systems should be determined depending on the exposure conditions. At exposure to dust or mist respiratory equipment with particle filter P3 (EN 143) recommended. Maintenance, testing and change of the filter cartridges must be performed following the recommendations of the supplier.

Environmental exposure controls
Do not allow to enter into soil/subsoil.
Do not allow to enter into surface water or drains.

Disposal considerations

Advice on disposal
Chemicals and packages as waste must be disposed of in accordance with Directive 2008/98/EC and the respective national and local regulations. Consult your local or regional authorities.
Do not allow to enter into surface water or drains. Dispose of waste according to applicable legislation.

Contaminated packaging
