Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Hazardous decomposition products: Carbon oxides, Tin oxide fumes.
Thermal decomposition: >230 °C
Further information: Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
Specific hazards during fire fighting: Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Normal measures for preventative fire protection.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
Methods for containment/Methods for cleaning up: Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

HANDLING
Advice on safe handling: Avoid exceeding of the given occupational exposure limits. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. For personal protection refer to section Exposure controls/personal protection. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area. Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.
Advice of protection against fire and explosion: Normal measures for preventive fire protection.

STORAGE
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Prevent unauthorised access. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
Other data: No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
