Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
Alcohol-resistant foam. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry chemical. Dry sand. Limestone powder.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
No data available.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Incomplete combustion may form carbon monoxide. May generate ammonia gas. May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. Burning produces noxious and toxic fumes. Downwind personnel must be evacuated.
Advice for fire-fighters:
Avoid contact with the skin. A face shield should be worn. Use personal protective equipment. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.
Further information:
Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses., Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Environmental precautions:
Construct a dike to prevent spreading. Construct a dike to prevent spreading.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Contact Air Products' Emergency Response Center for advice. Approach suspected leak areas with caution. Place in appropriate chemical waste container.
Additional advice:
If possible, stop flow of product

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily accessible.
