Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : AFFF foam. BC powder. Carbon dioxide. Dry sand. Dry chemical powder. Adapt extinguishing
media to the environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media : Solid water jet ineffective as extinguishing medium.

Fire hazard : DIRECT FIRE HAZARD. Combustible. In finely divided state: increased fire hazard. INDIRECT
FIRE HAZARD. Temperature above flashpoint: higher fire/explosion hazard.
Explosion hazard : DIRECT EXPLOSION HAZARD. Its dust is explosive with air. INDIRECT EXPLOSION
HAZARD. Dust cloud can be ignited by a spark.
Reactivity : On burning: release of (carbon monoxide - carbon dioxide).

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
General measures : Mark the danger area. Prevent dust cloud formation, e.g. by wetting. Dust production: have
neighbourhood close doors and windows. Exposure to heat: have neighbourhood close doors
and windows. In case of dust production: no naked flames or sparks. Dust: spark-
/explosionproof appliances/lighting equipment.
For non-emergency personnel
Protective equipment : See "Material-Handling" to select protective clothing.
For emergency responders
Protective equipment : Use protective measures listed in Section 8.
Environmental precautions
Prevent soil and water pollution.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For containment : Knock down/dilute dust cloud with water spray.
Methods for cleaning up : Carefully collect the spill/leftovers. If melted: allow liquid to solidify before taking it up. Scoop
solid spill into closing containers or into synthetic bags. Clean contaminated surfaces with an
excess of water and soap solution.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Handling temperature : ≥ 10 °C above melting point
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Prohibitions on mixed storage : KEEP SUBSTANCE AWAY FROM: ignition sources. (strong) acids. (strong) bases.
Storage area : Keep container in a well-ventilated place. Store at ambient temperature. Keep out of direct
sunlight. Meet the legal requirements.
Special rules on packaging : SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: closing. correctly labelled. meet the legal requirements.
