Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Alcohol resistant foam (carbon dioxide or dry powder may be
used for small fires) should be used. Cool containers with
water spray.

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon oxides, acrylic
vapours and silica.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Contain and collect spillage. Do not allow to enter drains
or water courses. Dispose of waste by incineration.

Danger other than fire: None reported.

Chemical reaction with water: Hexamethyldisiloxane (HMDS) may be formed. Pure HMDS has a
boiling point of 101 deg C and a flash point of -2 deg C.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for reuse is only possible if the substance is
uncontaminated and no hydrolysis had taken place.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous effect.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a controlled landfill site is possible, the
substance will slowly hydrolyse. (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method. Flue gas treatment to remove silica
should be used. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended, However, acrylic acid polymers have been
use as coagulant aids for primary sewage treatment, removal
by the usual water treatment processess should, therefore,
be possible.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain. Paint
preparations, for public use, containing the substance may
be disposed of as domestic waste.
