For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents:
. Water with a full water jet.
Special hazards caused by the material, its products of combustion or resulting gases::
. Can be released in case of fire
. Carbon monoxide (CO)
. Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
. Sulphur dioxide (SO2)
. Hydrocarbons
. Under certain fire conditions, traces of other toxic gases cannot be excluded, e.g.: PAH
Protective equipment:
. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
. Do not inhale explosion gases or combustion gases.
Additional information:
. Cool endangered containers with water spray jet.
. Collect contaminated fire fighting water separately. It must not enter drains.
. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated fire fighting water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Person-related safety precautions:
. Ensure adequate ventilation.
. Use breathing protection against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.
. Wear protective clothing (see section "Exposure controls / personal protection").
. Keep unprotected persons away.
Measures for environmental protection:
. Do not allow product to enter the ground/soil.
. Do not allow product to reach sewage system or water bodies.
. Inform respective authorities in case product reaches soil and aquatic environment or sewage system.
Measures for cleaning/collecting:
. Absorb with liquid-binding material (sand, diatomite, acid binders, universal binders).
. Send for recovery or disposal in suitable containers.
. Dispose of contaminated material as waste according to item in the section "Disposal considerations" .
. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Additional information:
. See section "Exposure controls / personal protection" for information on personal protection equipment.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

General protective and hygienic measures:
. Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food.
. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.
. Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.
. Store protective clothing separately.
. Special rooms for washing, showering and changing are required.
. Do not inhale gases / fumes / aerosols.
. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

Breathing equipment:
. In case of brief exposure or low pollution use breathing filter apparatus.
. In case of intensive or longer exposure use breathing apparatus that is independent of circulating air.
. Short term filter device:
. Filter ABEK

Protection of hands:
. Only use chemical-protective gloves with CE-labelling of category III (EN 374).
. Heat resistant gloves

Material of gloves:
. The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Penetration time of glove material:
. The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

For the permanent contact in work areas without heightened risk of injury (e.g. Laboratory) gloves made of the following material are suitable:
. Nitril rubber
. Butyl rubber

As protection from splashes gloves made of the following materials are suitable:
. Nitril rubber,NBR

Eye protection:
. Tightly sealed safety glasses.
. Gauze goggles.

Body protection:

Materials to be avoided:
. Oxidizing materials.

Dangerous reactions:
. Can form explosive mixtures in air if heated above flash point and/or when sprayed or atomised.

Dangerous products of decomposition:
Thermal decomposition or combustion products:
. Carbon monoxide (CO)
. Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
. Sulphur dioxide (SO2)
. Hydrocarbons
. Under certain fire conditions, traces of other toxic gases cannot be excluded, e.g.: PAH

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations.
. Carcinogenic waste products should be clearly labelled and stored securely until such time as they are removed by a competent specialist contractor, or are disposed of safely on site by incineration or in another way that does not accentuate the risk to other workers or outside environment.
