Fire-fighting measures

1) Extinguishing media
- Suitable extinguishing media: Water mist, alcohol resistant foam, regular dry chemical, carbon dioxide.
- Unsuitable extinguishing media: Strong water jet.

2) Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Flammable. Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking.
- Combustion: oxides of carbon, borane/boron oxides.
- Fire Fighting Measures: Use extinguishing agents appropriate for surrounding fire. Do not allow run-off from fire-fighting to enter drains or water courses. Use water spray/stream to protect personnel and to cool endangered containers.
- Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical protective clothing. Wear fire/flame resistant/retardant clothing.

Accidental release measures

1) Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Ventilate affected area. Remove all sources of ignition. Evacuate area. Flammable vapors can accumulate in steam space of closed systems.

2) Environmental precautions
Avoid release to the environment. Do not allow to enter into ground-water, surface water or drains.

3) Methods and Materials for Containment and Cleaning Up
Dike for later disposal. Stop leak if safe to do so. Absorb with liquid-binding material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid- or universal binding agents). Collect in closed and suitable containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

1) Precautions for safe handling
Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing and eye/face protection. Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Wash thoroughly after handling.
