Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Extinguish surrounding fires with suitable extinguisher.
Improper extinguishing media: Do not fight fires involving explosives, risk of explosion! Fire in explosives can not be extinguished with any fire equipment.
Fire and explosion hazards: Explosive by shock, friction, fire or other sources of ignition. By explosion or fire, toxic gases such as nitrogen oxides (NO, NO2 and N2O4) and carbon oxides (CO, CO2) may be formed.
Personal protective equipment: Use compressed air equipment when the product is involved in fire. In case of evacuation, an approved protection
mask should be used.
Other Information: Evacuate all personnel to a predetermined safe location. Notify authorities in accordance with emergency response procedures.
Containers close to fire should be removed immediately or cooled with water.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use protective equipment as referred to in section below.
Environmental precautions: Do not allow to enter into sewer, water system or soil.
Methods for cleaning: Moisten with water before handling. Spillage should be removed with an aluminium or wooden shovel and placed in a suitable
container for later burning.
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations for waste handling.

Handling and storage

Handling: Only to be handled by authorized personnel. The explosives must be under supervision and unavailable for persons not concerned.

smoking and using the toilet.
Storage: Store dry in a well-ventilated place. Storage room must be locked and secured from fire. Store separated from: igniters.
To be stored at temperatures between 0 and 30 °C.
Special risks and properties: Explosive by shock and heating.
