Fire-fighting measures

Fire Fighting Measures

Extinguishing Media
CO2, dry chemical, or foam. Water can be used to cool and protect exposed material.

Special hazards arising from substance or mixture
Elevated temperatures can lead to the formation of irritating fumes and vapors. See section “Stability and Reactivity” for additional information.

Advice for firefighters
Recommend wearing self-contained breathing apparatus. Water may cause splattering.

Accidental release measures

Accidental Release Measures
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Responders should review this MSDS before proceeding with cleanup. Personal protective equipment must be worn. Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing.
Ventilate area if spilled in a confined space or other poorly ventilated area.

Environmental precautions
Take precautions to avoid release to the environment. Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater. Check on local, national and international regulatory information to determine any reporting requirements for spills.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material.

Reference to other sections
See sections “Exposure Controls/Personal Protection” and “Disposal Considerations” for additional information.

Handling and storage
