Specific hazards during firefighting: Heating will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting. Some risk may be expected of corrosive and toxic decomposition products.
Special protective equipment for fire fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
No unprotected exposed skin areas.
Further information: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. The product itself does not burn. Cool containers / tanks with water spray.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls
The Personal Protective Equipment must be in accordance with EN standards: respirator EN 136, 140, 149; safety glasses EN 166; protective suit: EN 340, 463, 468, 943-1, 943-2; gloves EN 374, safety shoes EN-ISO 20345.
Do not breathe vapours or spray mist.
When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Always have on hand a first-aid kit, together with proper instructions.

Environmental exposure controls
Handle in accordance with local environmental regulations and good industrial practices.

Engineering measures
acid resisting floor
Local exhaust
Emergency sprinkling nozzle

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection : Full mask, P3
Remarks: In the case of dust or aerosol formation use respirator with an approved filter.

Hand protection : Glove material: Natural Latex, Break through time: > 480 min, Glove thickness: 0.6 mm,
Lapren®706
Remarks: Supplementary note: The specifications are based on information and tests from similar substances by analogy. Due to varying conditions (e.g. temperature or other strains) it must be considered that the usage of a chemical protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined in accordance with EN 374. Since actual conditions of practical use often deviate from standardised conditions according EN 374 the glove manufacturer recommends to use the chemical protective glove in practice not longer than 50% of the recommended permeation time.
Manufacturer´s directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types . Suitable gloves tested according EN 374 are supplied e.g. from KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Vertrieb@kcl.de

Eye protection : Safety goggles
Skin and body protection : Wear suitable protective equipment. Complete suit protecting against chemicals
