Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local cir-cumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
High volume water jet
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during fire-fighting
Stibine may evolve under reducing conditions (such as con-tact with strong acids or alkalis in the presence of a metal) or in the presence of nascent hydrogen.
Stibine is a colourless, bad smelling gas, highly toxic similar to arsine.
Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Hazardous combustion prod-ucts
Metal oxides
5.3 Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if nec-essary.
Further information
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.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions
Use personal protective equipment.
Avoid dust formation.
Avoid breathing dust.
6.2 Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions
Prevent product from entering drains.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up
Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling
Avoid formation of respirable particles.
Do not breathe vapours/dust.
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
For personal protection see section 8.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the ap-plication area.
Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Avoid dust formation. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.
Hygiene measures
When using do not eat or drink. When using do not smoke. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully re-sealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Observe label precautions. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards. To maintain product quality, do not store in heat or direct sunlight.
Other data
Keep in a dry place. No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
