Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,
nitrogen and sulfur.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (see 2.3.1).
Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb

spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg
sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to labelled
waste containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Dispose of waste material by incineration in accordance with
local regulations.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent. Do not
discharge washings to drain.
