Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Water
Foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry powder
Unsuitable extinguishing media: For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting Combustible.
Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Forms explosive mixtures with air on intense heating. Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.
Fire may cause evolution of: Hydrogen fluoride.


Advice for firefighters
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: Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. 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
Personal precautions: Advice for non-emergency personnel:
Do not breathe vapours, aerosols.
Avoid substance contact.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.

Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up: Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills. Observe possible material restrictions. Take up with liquid-absorbent material. Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling: Observe label precautions.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Hygiene measures: Change contaminated clothing. Preventive skin protection recommended. Wash hands after working with substance.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Store in original container.
Further information on storage conditions: Tightly closed.

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.

Eye protection: Safety glasses
Hand protection: splash contact
Glove material: Viton®
Glove thickness: 0,70 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.

Protective measures: Flame retardant antistatic protective clothing.
Respiratory protection: required when vapours/aerosols are generated.
Recommended Filter type: ABEK-filter

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.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity

Conditions to avoid
Conditions to avoid: Strong heating.

Incompatible materials
Materials to avoid: no information available

Disposal considerations

Dispose according to local legislation.
