5.3 Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if nec-essary.
Further information
:
Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions
:
Use personal protective equipment.
Avoid dust formation.
Avoid breathing dust.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
6.2 Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions
:
Prevent product from entering drains.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up
:

6.4 Reference to other sections

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling
:
Avoid formation of respirable particles.
Do not breathe vapours/dust.
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
For personal protection see section 8.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the ap-plication area.
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
:
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.
Hygiene measures
:
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. General industrial hygiene practice.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
:
Prevent unauthorized access. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leak-age. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards. To maintain product quality, do not store in heat or direct sunlight.
Further information on stor-age stability
:
Keep in a dry place. No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
