Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing media: water
Dry powder
Foam
CO2

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Hazard-determining flue gases might develop in case of fire:
hydrogen chloride
chlorine
phosgene
Hydro-cyanic acid
Nitrous gases

Advice for firefighters:
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Keep out unprotected persons.
In case of fire: full protective suit and wear a self contained respiratory apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Pack and label wastes like the pure substance. Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see section "Exposure Control/personal protection".

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Use permissible in closed systems only. Handle and transfer product in closed systems only (gas displacement device).
Ensure that apparatus and pipelines are free from leaks. Do not ventilate into the open.
Suitable loading and unloading device required.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Storage:
Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.

Further information:
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so
as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.

German storage class:
3 - Flammable liquids
