Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Suitable extinguishing media
Water spray jet. Water mist. Foam. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Extinguishing powder.
5.2 Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Full water jet.
5.3 Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself,
combustion products, resulting gases
In case of fire may be liberated:
Sulphur dioxide (SO2). Sulphur trioxide.
5.4 Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Wear full chemical protective clothing. In case of fire: Wear self-contained breathing
apparatus.
5.5 Additional information
Intervention Actions-General
Keep upwind. Put on protective equipment before entering danger area.
Intervention Actions-Fire (involving the substance)
Heating of container(s) will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting and subsequent
explosion. Gives off toxic and irritant fumes when heated or burning. May attack
metals and produce hydrogen gas which may form explosive mixture with air. The
vapour may be invisible and is heavier than air. It spreads along the ground and may
enter sewers and basements. Keep container(s) cool with water. Extinguish with
water fog (spray). Do not use water jet to extinguish. Use water spray to knock down
fire fumes if possible. Avoid unnecessary run-off of extinguishing media which may
cause pollution.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions (spillage)
Wear personal protection equipment.
6.2 Environmental precautions
Stop leaks if possible. Contain spillage by any means available.
6.3 Methods for cleaning up
Refer to chapter 6.4
6.4 Additional information
Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent
dusting. Wash away remainder with plenty of water. Personal protection: P2 filter
respirator for harmful particles.

Handling and storage

7.1 Handling
7.1.1 Advices on safe handling
Protective measures
Wear personal protection equipment. Refer to chapter 8. Do not eat, drink, smoke or
sneeze at the workplace.
Dangerous areas must be delimited and marked with appropriate warning and safety
signs. In the immediate working surroundings there must be: Emergency spray
installed. provide eye wash and label its location conspicuously. provide sufficient
washing facilities. Fill only into labelled container. Instruction on the hazards and the
protective measures using instruction manual are required with signature.
Working areas must be arranged in such a manner that they can be cleaned at all
times.
7.1.2 Technical measures
Measures to prevent aerosol and dust generation
It is recommende to design all work processes always so that the following is
excluded: Inhalation. Skin contact. Eye contact. If handled uncovered, arrangements
with local exhaust ventilation should be used if possible.
Measures required to protect the environment
No special environmental protection measures are necessary.
7.1.3 Specific requirements or handling rules
The floor should be leak tight, jointless and not absorbent.
7.1.4 Precautions against fire and explosion
Usual measures for fire prevention.
7.2 Storage
7.2.1 Technical measures and storage conditions
Keep container tightly closed. Keep/Store only in original container.
Protect against: Humidity. UV-radiation/sunlight.
7.2.2 Hints on storage assembly
Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.
7.2.3 Further information on storage conditions
Storage class 8 B nicht brennbare ätzende Stoffe
Storage temperature 10 °C – 30 °C
Relative air humidity 10 – 55 %
Maximum period of storage 2 Jahre / years / Años / ans / anni / jaren

Personal protection equipment
Respiratory protection
Respiratory protection required in case of: Handling larger quantities. In the case of
the formation of dust.
Suitable respiratory protective equipment: Particle filter device (DIN EN 143).
Type of mask: Half-face mask (DIN EN 140).
Filtering device: P2 or P3
Hand protection
Use protective gloves. The glove material must be sufficiently impermeable and
resistant to the substance. Check the tightness before wear. Gloves should be well
cleaned before being removed, then stored in a well ventilated location. Pay attention
to skin care. Textile or leather gloves are completely unsuitable.
The following information is valid for aqueous, saturated solutions of the substance.
Suitable materials for gloves are (brakthrough time>=8 hours)
NR (Natural rubber (Caoutchouc), Natural latex) - NR (0,5 mm); CR (polychloroprenes, Chloroprene
rubber) - CR (0,5 mm); NBR (Nitrile rubber)- NBR (0,35 mm); Butyl rubber - Butyl (0,5 mm); FKM
(fluororubber) - FKM (0,4 mm); PVC (Polyvinyl chloride)- PVC (0,5 mm);
The times listed are suggested by measurements taken at 22 degree C and constant
contact. Temperatures raised by warmed substances, body heat, etc. and a
weakening of the effective layer thickness caused by expansion can lead to a
significantly shorter breakthrough time. In case of doubt contact the gloves'
manufacturer. A 1.5-times increase / decrease in the layer thickness doubles / halves
the breakthrough time. This data only applies to the pure substance. Transferred to
mixtures of substances, these figures should only be taken as an aid to orientation.
Eye protection
Suitable eye protection: Tightly sealed safety glasses.
Remark: -
Protective clothing
Suitable protection of the body: Chemical resistant safety shoes. Protective
clothing: DIN EN 13034
Required properties: -
General health and safety measures
When using do not eat, drink, smoke, sneeze. Wash hands and face before breaks
and after work and take a shower if necessary. Draw up skin protection programme.

work clothes. Immediately remove any contaminated clothing, shoes or stockings.
In the immediate working surroundings there must be: Emergency shower installed.
Make available sufficient washing facilities. Provide eye shower and label its location
conspicuously.
Set out skin protection guidelines. Only wear fitting, comfortable and clean protective
clothing.
8.2.2 Environmental exposure controls
See section 7. No additional measures necessary.
