Fire-fighting measures

Prevention : Keep away from combustible material
- Suitable extinguishing media : Large quantity of water.
- Unsuitable extinguishing media : Water spray.
Specific hazards : May accelerate the burning of other combustible materials. Contact with combustible material may cause fire. On contact with moist air and of water, may liberate toxic gases (SO2).
Protection against fire : Tight protective clothing required.
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, rubber boots and thick rubber gloves.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions : Spill should be handled by trained cleaning personnel properly equipped with respiratory and eye protection.
Safety glasses.
Keep public away from danger area.
Environmental precautions : Prevent entry to sewers, soils and natural waters.
After spillage and/or leakage : Avoid : Moisture.
Remove ignition sources. Hydrolyses with time (guranteed shelf life = 2 months).
Collect spill when it's dry.
On land, sweep or shovel into suitable containers.

Handling and storage

Storage - away from : Oxidizing material, acids, moisture, water or all heat sources.
General : Store and handle as though always a serious potential fire/explosion and health hazard exists.
Precautions in handling and storage : Avoid all unnecessary exposure. Both local exhaust and good general room ventilation must be provided not only to control exposure but also to prevent formation of flammable mixtures.
Storage : Keep container closed when not in use. Store in tightly closed containers.
Store in dry, cool, well-ventilated area. Keep away from any acid and of oxidizing material.
Handling : Wash hands plentifully and other exposed areas with water after handling.
Handle empty containers with care because residual dusts are flammable.
