Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Advice for firefighters - Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.
Chemical resistant protective suit. Under the protective suit a fire protective suit according to EN 469 should be applied.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Wear protective clothing. Avoid contact with eyes and skin and clothes. Do not breathe dust.
Access only for trained personnel with personal protective equipment. Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.
Avoid spillage of product into the environment. Avoid formation of dust. Implementation of further measures based on existing emergency plans.
Environmental precautions: Do not allow to enter sewers/ surface or ground water. Keep contaminated washing water and dispose of appropriately.
Inform respective authorities in case of seepage into water course or sewage system. Do not allow undiluted product or large quantities of it to reach ground water, water course or sewage system.

Handling and storage
