Serious eye damage/eye irritation

3. INDICATION OF ANY IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION AND SPECIAL TREATMENT NEEDED
Treatment: Treat symptomatically

Fire-fighting measures

1. EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Suitable extinguishing agents: Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

2. SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE
Specific hazards during fire-fighting: Fire will produce dense black smoke containing hazardous combustion products

3. ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information: Standard procedure for chemical fires. Use water spray to cool unopened containers. 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

1. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS; PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
Wear protective equipment.

2. ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities

3. METHODS AND MATERIAL FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Use mechanical handling equipment. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

1. PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Avoid formation of aerosol. Keep away from sources of igni-tion - No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.

Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work-day.

2. CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATIBLITIES
Requirements for storage areas and containers: No smoking. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
Other data: No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
Further information about storage conditions:
Store in a dry place. Store in a closed container. Protect from heat and direct sunlight. Store container in a well ventilated position. Protect from humidity and keep away from water. This product is hygroscopic.
