Fire-fighting measures

General Information:
Vapours may form an explosive mixture with air. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Containers may explode in the heat of a fire. Vapour may be ignited by static sparks, flammable liquid and vapour. Storage tanks are earthed to avoid sparks as points of ignition.

Protective Equipment for Fire-fighters:
Body covering protective clothing, full "turn out" gear
Self contained breathing apparatus.

Extinguishing Media

For Large Fires:
-Use alcohol-type foam or universal-type foams.
For Small Fires:
-Dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Do not use:
- Water jets

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions:
-Use proper personal protective equipment in an accident and evacuate unnecessary personnel. Eliminate sources of ignition and avoid all contact with material.

Environmental Precautions:
- Prevent from entering sewer system, surface water or soil.

Spills and Leaks
-Absorb small spills with an inert material e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth, then place in a suitable container.
-Dike large spills to contain spill and pump excess material into a suitable container.
- Avoid run off into waterways.
- Remove all sources of ignition and use spark-proof tools.

Handling and storage

Handling precautions:
- Wear recommended personal protection equipment.
- Warn personnel about the dangers of the product.
- Keep container tightly closed.
- Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
- Wash thoroughly after handling.
-Use adequate ventilation.
- Avoid contact with skin or clothes.
- Avoid inhalation or ingestion.

Storage requirements:
- The test material is normally stored in pressurised tanks under nitrogen blanketing, which are fitted with level sensors.
- Tanks are earthed to avoid sparks as points of ignition.
- Delivered in stainless steel iso tankers.
- Store in a cool, dry place.
- Keep away from all sources of ignition.
