Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
- Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
- None.
Specific hazards arising from the chemical
- The product is not flammable.
- Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.
- Gas/vapours combustion possible in presence of air in very particular conditions (see section 9 and/or consult the producer).
Special protective actions for fire-fighters
- Fire fighters must wear fire resistant personnel protective equipment.
- Wear chemically resistant over suits.
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Protect intervention team with a water spray as they approach the fire.
- Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.
- Keep containers and surroundings cool with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Advice for non-emergency personnel
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
- Keep away from Incompatible products.
Advice for emergency responders
- Immediately evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- The product evaporates readily.
- Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.
- Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet.
- Avoid spraying the leak source.
- Cover the spreading liquid with foam in order to slow down the evaporation.
- Avoid skin contact with leaking liquid (danger of frostbite).
- Ventilate the area.

Environmental precautions
- Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
- Inform the responsible authorities in case of gas leakage, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
- Dam up.
- Soak up with inert absorbent material.
- Prevent product from entering drains.
- Keep in properly labelled containers.
- Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.
Reference to other sections
- Refer to protective measures listed in section Exposure controls/personal protection
