Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: All means (e.g. water, carbon dioxide, dry chemical extinguisher).
Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons: Strong water jet.
Specific hazards: In case of fire, the product may emit toxic and/or irritating fumes. Supposed thermal decomposition/oxidation: Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide; Sulphurous oxides (SOx)
Protection during intervention: Use self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear full protective suit.
Further information: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. Avoid rejection of extinguishing water in the environment.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Particle full face respirator or powered air purifying respirator. Suitable gloves. Dedicated work clothes.
Environmental precautions: Avoid spreading of product.
Methods for cleaning up/taking up: Sweep and shovel the solid product in a container adapted for its recovery or destroying (avoiding dust formation). Close and label rigorously.
Cleaning of contaminated zone: After taking up the product, rinse the polluted area with water.
Elimination of recovered materials: Deliver to Environmental service of the factory or to any specialized and approved disposal service.
Further information: Evacuation of area and intervention of special services recommended. Intervention of special services recommended.

Handling and storage

Sensitivity: No particular observation

Handling
Advice on safe handling (workshop): Local ventilation and emission point dust extraction. Take precautionnary measures against electrostatic loading. Earth vessels and equipment well.
Advice on safe handling (laboratory): Handling in a hood recommended.
