Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
General advice : Call a physician immediately. Symptoms of poisoning may only appear several hours later.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray., Dry extinguishing powder., Alcohol-resistant foam., Carbon dioxide (CO2).
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Specific hazards during fire fighting: In case of fire, thermal decomposition with emission of hazardous fumes is possible HBr Carbon monoxide (CO), Carbon dioxide (CO2).
Further information: Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.Avoid raising of dust.

Advice for fire-fighters:
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Regular fire intervention clothes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Personal precautions : Cleanup personnel must use appropriate personal protective equipment. Avoid formation of dust.
Additional advice : Avoid dust formation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Environmental precautions:

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Control parameters:
Components with occupational exposure limits rsp. biological occupational exposure limits requiring monitoring:
a) Occupational exposure limits:
Air limit values: We are not aware of any national exposure limit.
Biological limit values : We are not aware of any national exposure limit.
b) Additional exposure limits under the conditions of use:
Particles not otherwise classified (inhalation fraction: dust/mist): 3 mg/m^3 Particles not otherwise classified (inhalation fraction): 10 mg/m3No other exposure limits applicable.
c) DNEL/DMEL and PNEC-values:
DNEL : No DNEL/DMEL value determined.
PNEC : No PNEC value determined.

2. Exposure controls:
Occupational exposure controls:
a) Instruction measures to prevent exposure:
Employees should wash their hands and face before eating, drinking, or using tobacco products.
Keep away from foodstuffs, drinks and tobacco.
b) Technical measures to prevent exposure:
Ensure adequate ventilation.
c) Personal measures to prevent exposure:
Respiratory protection: Dust mask class P2. In case of heavy air pollution a mask with A/(P2)-filter is to be worn.
Hand protection: Use chemical resistant gloves. The use of protective gloves should conform to the specifications of EC directive 89/686/EC and the resultant standard EN374.
Additional advice: The data are based on own tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or derived from similar substances. Because several factors may influence these properties (eg temperature), one should take into account the fact that the life of a chemical gloves in practice may be considerably shorter than indicated by the permeation test. The high diversity of types of use are prescribed by the manufacturer.
Eye protection: Safety goggles. EN 166. Safety glasses.
Body Protection: Safety clothes : long sleeved clothing EN13688
Personal protective equipment: Eye-wash bottle with clean water. Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be available.
