Special protective equipment for firefighting:
- Do not inhale explosion and/or combustion gases.
- Use self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:
- Fire residues and contaminated firefighting water must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
- Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons must be kept away.
- Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
- Remove persons to safety.

Environmental precautions:
- Do not allow entry to drains, water courses or soil.
- Contain contaminated water/firefighting water.
- Prevent spread over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers).

Methods for cleaning up/taking up:
- Pick up with liquid binding materials and if necessary fill in containers capable of being locked.
- Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations.
- When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal".
- Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with the regulations.
- Containers in which spilt substance has been collected must be adequately labelled.
