Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
water spray, alcohol resistant foam, fire extinguishing powder, carbon dioxide (CO2)
Unsuitable extinguishing media
water jet Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazardous decomposition products: Section 10.
In case of insufficient ventilation and/or in use, may form flammable/explosive vapour-air mixture.
Solvent vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Places which are not ventilated, e.g. unventilated below ground level areas such as trenches, conduits and shafts, are particularly prone to the presence of flammable substances or mixtures.
Hazardous combustion products
carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2)
Advice for firefighters
Keep containers cool with water spray.
In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.
Co-ordinate firefighting measures to the fire surroundings.
Do not allow firefighting water to enter drains or water courses. Collect contaminated firefighting water separately.
Fight fire with normal precautions from a reasonable distance.
Special protective equipment for firefighters
chemical protection suit, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA)


Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel
Remove persons to safety.
Ventilate affected area.
Avoidance of ignition sources.
Do not breathe mist/vapours/spray.
Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.
Wearing of suitable protective equipment (including personal protective equipment referred to under Section 8 of the safety data sheet) to prevent any contamination of skin, eyes and personal clothing.
For emergency responders
Wear breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/spray/gases.
Environmental precautions
Keep away from drains, surface and ground water.
Retain contaminated washing water and dispose of it.
If substance has entered a water course or sewer, inform the responsible authority.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Advices on how to clean up a spill
Collect spillage.
Absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust, etc.).
Appropriate containment techniques
Use of adsorbent materials.
Other information relating to spills and releases
Place in appropriate containers for disposal. Ventilate affected area.


Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Measures to prevent fire as well as aerosol and dust generation
Use local and general ventilation.
Use only in well-ventilated areas.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Due to danger of explosion, prevent leakage of vapours into cellars, flues and ditches. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment.
Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting equipment.
Use only non-sparking tools.
Specific notes/details
Places which are not ventilated, e.g. unventilated below ground level areas such as trenches, conduits and shafts, are particularly prone to the presence of flammable substances or mixtures.
Vapours are heavier than air, spread along floors and form explosive mixtures with air.
Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.
Measures to protect the environment
Avoid release to the environment.
Advice on general occupational hygiene
Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas.
Preventive skin protection (barrier creams/ointments) is recommended.
Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. Do not breathe mist/vapours/spray.
Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.
Wash thoroughly after handling.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Explosive atmospheres
Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place. Use local and general ventilation.
Keep cool.
Protect from sunlight.
Flammability hazards
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Ground/bond container and receiving equipment.
Protect from sunlight.
Protect against external exposure, such as
heat, sunlight, direct light irradiation
Consideration of other advice
Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs. Keep container tightly closed in a cool place.
General rule
Store locked up.
Ventilation requirements
Keep any substance that emits harmful vapours or gases in a place that allows these to be perman- ently extracted.
Provision of sufficient ventilation.
Packaging compatibilities
Only packagings which are approved (e.g. acc. to ADR) may be used.
