Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry powder, Foam, Carbon dioxide, Dry chemical extinguisher

Non Suitable extinguishing media: Full water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance: In case of combustion evolution of dangerous gases possible. In the event of fire the following can be released: Carbon monoxide (CO); Carbon dioxide (CO2).

Advice for firefighters: Use special protective equipment for fire-fighting; Do not inhale explosion and/or combustion gases. In case of combustion use a suitable breathing apparatus. Wear full protective suit.

Other information:
Collect contaminated fire-fighting water separately, must not be discharged into the drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire-fighting water must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations. Cool endangered containers with water spray jet.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Keep away sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/aerosol. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Use personal protective clothing.

Environmental precautions: Prevent spread over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers). Do not discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater. Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil. Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. In case of gas escape or of entry into waterways, soil or drains, inform the responsible authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Take up with absorbent material (eg sand, kieselguhr, universal binder). Do not pick up with the help of saw-dust or other combustible substances. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations. Containers in which spilt substance has been collected must be adequately labelled. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with the regulations.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:
Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary). Avoid formation of aerosols. Avoid impact, friction and electro-static loading; risk of ignition! Use explosion-proof apparatus and fittings. Keep container tightly closed. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in application area.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from sources of heat and ignition. No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static charges. Use explosion-proof equipment/fittings and non-sparking tools. Keep away from combustible materials. Wear shoes with conductive soles.

Requirements for storage rooms and vessels:
Keep in original packaging, tightly closed. Storage rooms must be properly ventilated. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Provide solvent-resistant and impermeable floor.

Hints on storage assembly:
Do not store together with foodstuffs. Do not store with strong oxidizing agents.

Further information on storage conditions:
Store only in the open air or in explosion-proof rooms. Keep container tightly closed in a well-ventilated place.
