Carbon monoxide
Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Further information:
Attempt to stop leakage without personal risk.
If conditions permit, let fire burn itself out.
Cool containers/tanks with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Personal precautions:
Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
Vapours can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available
for breathing.
Use personal protective equipment.
Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so.
Attempt to stop leakage without personal risk.

Environmental precautions:
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Prevent product from entering environment and drains.
Observe the risk of explosion.
If major spillage occurs, contact the proper local authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Allow to evaporate.
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:
Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Prevent leaks by checking valves, pipelines and joints regularly.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. To avoid ignition of vapours by static electricity discharge, all metal parts of the equipment must be grounded. Ensure adequate ventilation. Risk of explosion if heated under confinement. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air. High risk of fire in case of leakage.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers:

Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
