Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Water, carbon dioxide (CO2), foam, dry powder

Unsuitable extinguishing media
For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Combustible.
Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.
Fire may cause evolution of: Sulphur oxides, nitrous gases, oxides of phospohorus

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.

Further information
Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Advice for non-emergency personnel: Avoid inhalation of dusts. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.
Advice for emergency responders: Protective equipment see section “Exposure controls/personal protection”.

Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills.
Observe possible material restrictions (see sections “Handling and Storage” and “Stability and Reactivity”).
Take up dry. Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area. Avoid generation of dusts.

Reference to other sections
Indications about waste treatment see section “Disposal Considerations”.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Technical measures and appropriate working operations should be given over the use of personal protective equipment. See section “Precautions for safe handling” in “Handling and Storage”.

Individual protection measures
Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.

Eye/face protection
Safety glasses


Hand protection
Full contact
Glove material: nitrile rubber
Glove thickness: 0.11 mm
Break through time: > 480 min
Splash contact
Glove material: nitrile rubber
Glove thickness: 0.11 mm
Break through time: > 480 min

The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374, for example KCL 741 Dermatril® L (full contact), KCL 741 Dermatril® L (splash contact).
The breakthrough times stated above were determined by KCL in laboratory tests acc. to EN374 with samples of the recommended glove types.
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet: www.kcl.de).

Respiratory protection
Required when dusts are generated.
Recommended Filter type: Filter P 1 (acc. to DIN 3181) for solid particles of inert substances.
The entrepreneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer. These measures have to be properly documented.


Environmental exposure controls
Do not empty into drains.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
The following applies in general to flammable organic substances and mixtures: in correspondingly fine distribution, when whirled up a dust explosion potential may generally be assumed.

Chemical stability
The product is chemically stable under standard ambient conditions (room temperature).

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Violent reactions possible with: strong oxidizing agents.

Conditions to avoid
Strong heating (decomposition).

Incompatible materials
No information available.

Hazardous decomposition products
in the event of fire: See section “Firefighting measures”.

Disposal considerations
