Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
alcohol-resistant foam , carbon dioxide , dry sand . Application of foam will release at least initially significant amounts of
flammable and corrosive vapors. These vapors could be trapped under the foam blanket.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
water , extinguishing powder , halones .
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Risk of hazardous gasses or fumes in the event of fire. Exposure to combustion products may be a health hazard! Hazardous
combustion products: carbon oxides , silicon oxides , hydrogen chloride , incompletely burnt hydrocarbons , toxic and very toxic
fumes .
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for fire fighting:
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air. Use tightly fitting chemical protection suit. Keep
unprotected persons away.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Secure the area. Wear personal protection equipment (see section 8). Task force: Use tightly fitting chemical protection suit. Keep unprotected persons away. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale gases/vapours/aerosols. Do not walk
through spilled material. Ensure adequate ventilation. If material is released indicate risk of slipping.
Environmental precautions
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil. Close leak if possible without risk. Contain any fluid that
runs out using suitable material (e.g. earth). Condense gasses/vapours/mists using a directed spray of water. Retain
contaminated water/extinguishing water. Dispose of in prescribed marked containers. Inform authorities if substance leaks into
surface waters, sewerage or ground.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Do not flush away with water. For small amounts: Absorb with liquid, mainly acid binding material and dispose of according to
local/state/federal regulation. Cover larger quantities by near waterless foam and take up in container. Exhaust vapours. Clean up
with plenty of water.
Further information:
Exhaust vapours. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Consider explosion protection.
Reference to other sections
Relevant information in other sections has to be considered. This applies in particular for information given on personal protective
equipment and on disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
General information:
Avoid exposure by technical measures or personal protective equipment.
Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Must be syphoned off in situ. Spilled substance increases risk of slipping. Avoid formation of
aerosols. In case of aerosol formation special protective measures are required (exhausting by suction, respiratory protection).
Keep away from incompatible substances.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Flammable vapors may accumulate and form explosive mixtures with air in containers, process vessels, including partial, empty
and uncleaned containers and vessels, or other enclosed spaces. Vapours heavier than air, therefore inflammable gas mixture
may form mainly near floor. Keep away from sources of ignition and do not smoke. Take precautionary measures against
electrostatic charging. Cool endangered containers with water.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Conditions for storage rooms and vessels:
Store under protective gas.
Advice for storage of incompatible materials:
Keep away from incompatible substances. Observe local/state/federal regulations.
Further information for storage:
Store in a dry and cool place. Protect against moisture. Store container in a well ventilated place.
