Specific hazards during firefighting
: Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water
courses.
Hazardous combustion products
: Nickel compounds
Sulphuric acid
Specific extinguishing methods
: 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.
Special protective equipment
for firefighters
: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
: Use personal protective equipment.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Environmental precautions : Prevent product from entering drains.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
