Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media

Water fog or fine spray.  Dry chemical fire extinguishers.  Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers.  Foam.  General purpose synthetic foams (including AFFF type) or protein foams are preferred if available.  Alcohol resistant foams (ATC type) may function.  Water fog, applied gently may be used as a blanket for fire extinguishment.  

Extinguishing Media to Avoid: Do not use direct water stream.  May spread fire.  

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazardous Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating.  Combustion products may include and are not limited to:  Carbon monoxide.  Carbon dioxide.  

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Violent steam generation or eruption may occur upon application of direct water stream to hot liquids.  

5.3 Advice for firefighters

Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep people away.  Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry.  Do not use direct water stream.  May spread fire.  Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect personnel and minimize property damage.  Water fog, applied gently may be used as a blanket for fire extinguishment.  

Special Protective Equipment for Firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves).  If protective equipment is not available or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.

Accidental release measures

For additional information, refer to Section 8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection.  

6.2 Environmental precautions: Material will sink in water.  Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater. See Section 12, Ecological Information.  

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Contain spilled material if possible.  Absorb with materials such as:  Sawdust.  Sand.  Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers.  See Section 13, Disposal Considerations, for additional information.
