Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

- Suitable extinguishing media : Water spray. carbon dioxide (CO2), dry chemical powder, foam.

- Unsuitable extinguishing media : Do not use a heavy water stream.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

- Fire hazard : Under fire conditions, hazardous fumes will be present.

- Explosion hazard : Prolonged exposure to fire may cause containers to rupture/explode.

- Hazardous decomposition products in case of fire : Carbon oxides (CO, CO2). nitrogen oxides (NOx) and chlorine.

Advice for firefighters:

- Precautionary measures fire : Evacuate the danger area.

- Firefighting instructions : Fight fire remotely due to the risk of explosion. Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so. Use water spray or fog for cooling exposed containers. Do not breathe fumes from fires or vapours from decomposition.

- Protection during firefighting : Do not attempt to take action without suitable protective equipment. Self-contained breathing apparatus.

- Other information : Large amounts of the product should not be allowed to enter drains or water courses or be deposited where it can affect ground or surface waters.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

- General measures : Exclude sources of ignition and ventilate the area.

For non-emergency personnel

- Protective equipment: Do not attempt to take action without suitable protective equipment.

- Emergency procedures : If a major spill occurs, all personnel should be immediately evacuated and the area ventilated. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapours.

For emergency responders

- Protective equipment: Wear recommended personal protective equipment. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye or face protection

Environmental precautions: Dispose of at a licensed waste collection centre. Prevent from entering sewers, basements and workpits, or any place where its accumulation can be dangerous.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

- For containment : Contain the spilled material by bunding. Soak up spills with inert solids, such as clay or diatomaceous earth as soon as possible.

- Methods for cleaning up : Sweep up or vacuum up the product. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.

- Other information : Use suitable disposal containers. Dispose of contaminated material at an authorized site.

Reference to other sections: For further information refer to section 8: "Exposure controls/personal protection". Concerning disposal elimination after cleaning, see section 13.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

- Precautions for safe handling : Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Avoid all unnecessary exposure. Do not breathe vapours. Provide good ventilation in process area to prevent formation of vapour. Use personal protective equipment as required. Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking. Use only explosion-proof equipment.

- Hygiene measures : Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands and other exposed areas with mild soap and water before eating, drinking or smoking and when leaving work. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

- Technical measures : Use special care to avoid static electric charges. Ground well.

- Storage conditions : Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Store in tightly closed containers. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs.

- Incompatible materials : Strong oxidizing agents.

- Storage temperature : 2 - 8 °C

- Heat and ignition sources : Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Keep away from heat.

- Storage area : Install a retention tank.

Specific end use(s): No additional information available.
