Fire-fighting measures

No fire hazard.

Extinguishing Media:
In case of fire, use media suitable :
- carbon dioxid (CO2)
- powders

Not to be used:
Do not use water.

Special exposure hazards:
A fire will often product a thick black smoke. Exposure to decomposition products can cause hazard to health. Do not breath fumes.
In case of fire, decomposition products could be vanadium pentoxide (V205) and hydrochloric acid (HCl).

Special protective equipment for fire fighters:
Impermeable acid-resistant clothing. Positive-pressure, self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Evacuate any non-essential personnel. Protect intervention teams must wear impermeable acid-resistant clothing, including a positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.

Environmental precautions:
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible absorbent materials (e.g. sand, earth). Prevent entry into sewers or waterways.
Prevent water and moisture contact. Product fumes in air from reaction with atmospheric moisture. Fumes are a mixture of vanadium pentoxide and hydrochloric acid.
Alert relevant authorities in accordance with statutory procedures.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
If the ground is contaminated, and after product recovery by sponging with inert and non-combustible absorbent material, wash surface contaminated with plenty water.
Clean preferably with a detergent, avoid the use of solvents.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Wash hands after each use.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.
Provide safety showers and eye washes in workshops where the substance is handled.
Do not allow contact with moisture.
Do not smoke, eat or drink in the premises where the substance is used.
Do not open the packages under pressure.

Storage:
Keep container tightly closed in a dry place.
Keep away from food or drink.
Always keep in containers with same material as the original one.
