Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms and effects are not known to date.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
No specific antidote is known. Treatment of the symptoms.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Co-ordinate firefighting measures to the fire surroundings. Water spray, alcohol resistant foam, fire extinguishing powder, carbon dioxide (CO2).

Unsuitable extinguishing media
Water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Substance or mixture corrosive to metals.

Hazardous combustion products
Carbon monoxide (CO), Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Advice for firefighters
Keep containers cool with water spray. In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Do not allow firefighting water to enter drains or water courses. Collect contaminated firefighting water separately. Fight fire with normal precautions from a reasonable distance.

Special protective equipment for firefighters
Use suitable breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel
Remove persons to safety.

For emergency responders
Wear breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/spray/gases. Use personal protective equipment as required.

Environmental precautions
Keep away from drains, surface and ground water. Retain contaminated washing water and dispose of it. Chemicals generally shouldn’t reach surface water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Advice on how to contain a spill
Covering of drains

Advice on how to clean up a spill
Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Collect spillage: Absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust, etc.) Material for neutralizing like diluted acetic acid.

Appropriate containment techniques
Use of adsorbent materials.

Other information relating to spills and releases
Place in appropriate containers for disposal. Ventilate affected area.

Reference to other sections
Please refer to ‘Handling and Storage’, ‘Exposure controls/personal protection’ and ‘Disposal considerations’.
