Fire-fighting measures

FLASH POINT: >210°C (COC)

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use water spray, foam, carbon dioxide, dry sand, dry earth or dry chemical powder to extinguish flames. It depends of size fire.

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: None. Very low fire hazard. This material is not explosive.

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: If this material is near of a fire, it can burn and form flammable mixtures or can burn only upon heating to high temperatures, above its flash point.
Toxic gases will form upon combustion such as carbon oxides and sulfur oxides.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers, pipelines and structures.

If during firefighting this material is spilled and the water is present, product will behave as an oil and will float on the surface.

SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR FIRE-FIGHTERS: Protective clothing and self contained breathing equipment should be available for fire-men.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS:
-Wear personal protective equipment.
-Take care with slippery floors.
- Remove all sources of ignition.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS:
-Prevent further leakage of spillage if safe to do so.
-Prevent entry to sewers or ground, drains, etc.

METHODS FOR CLEANING: Contain spill to a small area. Pick up with absorbent material and transfer to a suitable container for disposal.
If not contaminated scoop up for re-use. If contaminated, shovel into drums or containers for disposal.
