Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam, water spray
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
High volume water jet
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.
5.3. Advice for firefighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Keep out unprotected persons. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. Remove all sources of ignition. Also keep emptied containers away from sources of heat and ignition. Dust can form an explosive mixture with air. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
