Unsuitable extinguishing media
- None


Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
- Combustible material
- Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.
- In presence of an important energy source vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.
- Gas/vapours combustion possible in presence of air in very particular conditions (see section 9 and/or consult the
producer).



Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- Wear chemical resistant oversuit
- Special protective actions for fire-fighters
- In case of fire, use water spray.
- Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Advice for non-emergency personnel
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
- Keep away from incompatible products
Advice for emergency responders
- Immediately evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.
- Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet.
- Avoid spraying the leak source.
- Ventilate the area.
Environmental precautions
- Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
- Inform the responsible authorities in case of gas leakage, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains.
