Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing media:       Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:       Not available.

5.2 Special hazards arising from the

substance or mixture       In case of fire, the following can be released: Carbon oxides.

5.3 Advice for firefighters:       Firefighters must wear fire resistant protective equipment. Wear approved respirator and protective gloves.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel:       Use personal protective equipment. Avoid breathing vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Beware of vapors accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapors can accumulate in low areas. For personal protection see section 8.

6.1.2 For emergency responders:       Wear an appropriate NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator if vapor is generated.

6.2 Environmental Precautions:       Avoid disposing into drainage/sewer system or directly into the aquatic environment.

6.3 Methods for Containment and Cleaning

up:       Contain spillage, and then collect with an electrically protected vacuum cleaner or by wet-brushing and place in container for disposal according to local regulations (see section 13).

6.4 Reference to other sections:       See Section 7 for information on safe handling.

See Section 8 for information on personal protection equipment.

See Section 13 for information on disposal.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling:

7.1.1 Protective measures:       Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapor or mist. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.

7.1.2 Advice on general occupational

hygiene:       Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas. Wash hands after use. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including

any incompatibilities:       Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Recommended storage temperature 2 - 8 °C

7.3 Specific end use(s):       Not applicable.

8.1.2 Additional exposure limits under the

conditions of use:       Not available.

8.1.3 DNEL/DMEL and PNEC-Values:       Not available.

8.2 Exposure controls:

8.2.1Appropriate engineering controls:       Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

8.2.2 Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

Eye/face protection:       Face shield and safety glasses.

Hand protection:       Handle with gloves.

Body protection:       Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.

Respiratory protection:       Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to enginee protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

Thermal hazards:       Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent heat.

8.2.3 Environmental exposure controls:       Avoid discharge into the environment.

According to local regulations, Federal and official regulations.
