Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: water spray jet, carbon dioxide
Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons: foam
Special hazards from the substance itself, its combustion products or from its vapours: In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO), Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Special protective equipment for firefighting: In case of fire, wear respiratory protection
Further information: Fire residues and contaminated firefighting water must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons must be kept away.
Environmental precautions: Do not allow to enter drains or waterways
Methods for cleaning up/taking up: Take up mechanically. When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal".

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling: Keep the formation and deposition of dust to a minimum. Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary).
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Organic products which are intentionally or unintentionally in powdered form have, in principle, the possibility of creating a dust explosion hazard. Avoid impact, friction and accumulation of electrostatic charge. Keep away from sources of ignition - refrain from smoking.
Requirements for storage rooms and vessels: Keep only in the original container
Advice on storage compatibility: Do not store or transport together with foodstuffs
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place
