Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
- Suitable extinguishing media: Alcohol-resistant foam; Carbon dioxide (CO2); Dry chemical

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
- Specific hazards during firefighting / Specific hazards arising from the chemical: Water spray may be ineffective unless used by experienced firefighters; Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
- Combustion products: Carbon oxides; Nitrogen oxides (NOx); Halogenated compounds; Hydrogen chloride

Advice for firefighters
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:
- Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
- 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.
-For safety reasons in case of fire, cans should be stored separately in closed containments.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
- Use personal protective equipment.
- Wear respiratory protection.
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Remove all sources of ignition.
- Beware of vapours accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapours can accumulate in low areas.

Emergency measures on accidental release:
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Only qualified personnel equipped with suitable protective equipment may intervene.
- Prevent unauthorised persons entering the zone.

Environmental precautions:
- Prevent product from entering drains.
- Discharge into the environment must be avoided.

Methods for cleaning up / Methods for containment:
- Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling:
- For personal protection, see the specific section.
