vomitting unless directed to do so by medical personnel.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical. Foam. Avoid using water which

may be not effective in extinguishing fire.

Product arising from burning: NOx, CO, CO2, H2O, HfO2

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing equipment

and protective fire fighting clothing (including fire

fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots and gloves).

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Cover and soak up with a suitable absorbent material.

Dispose of according to applicable regulations (The

substance should be neutralised with isopropanol. Incinerate

under controlled conditions in accordance with all local and

national laws and regulations. Do not dump into sewers, on

the ground, or into any body of water).

Contain and sweep up the material. Collect in suitable and

properly labelled containers.

To minimise exposure of workers during clean up the use of

industry vacuum cleaners is recommended.

Empty containers must be disposed of as hazardous waste

unless all remaining product adhered to the container walls

has been removed. Hazard warning labels can then be removed

from the container walls and the container sent for

recycling or disposol in accordance with local regulations.

Washing must be disposed of safely and in accordance with

local regulations. If the container is reconditioned, the

reconditioning company should be made aware of the nature of

the original contents. Glass bottles in sealed steel drums

with appropriate shock absorbent material.

Handling and storage

Handling: Only adequately trained personnel should handle this

product. Practice care and caution to avoid any skin and eye

contact.

Storage: Store under an inert dry atmosphere such as nitrogen or

argon. Store in a cool, well ventilated area, away from

sources of ignition.

Exposure to water or moist air must be avoided.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Preparation:

Material will be shipped in C-430 tanks, which are 208 cm x

107 cm x 122 cm, have a 2.71 cubic metric shipping cube, a

tare weight of 635-816 kg and hold 1465 L (ca. 90% full). A

C-430 full of the solution containing the substance will

therefore weigh roughly 1800-2100 kg.
