Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: water jet, water fog, foam, dry chemical, CO2, dry sand.
Initial fire: dry chemical, CO2, dry sand.
Large fire: water or foam.


SPECIAL HAZARDS: Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.

FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS: Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel away. Shut off supply if possible. Remove containers to safe place if possible. Keep surrounding areas cool by spraying water. Fight fire from an upwind position.

FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT: Respiratory and eye protection required for fire-fighting personnel. Full protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) should be used for all indoor fires and any significant outdoor fires.

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides.

Accidental release measures

Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel away. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Keep upwind, evacuate downwind.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: Do not flush into sewer, river or any body of water.

CONTAINMENT/CLEAN-UP METHODS: Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to sealable containers. Large spills: Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal. Stop leak if possible without personal risk. Avoid runoff to sewers or waterways.
