Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray jet, alcohol resistant foam, extinguishing powder, carbon dioxide

Special hazards arising from the substance:
In case of fire or heat toxic/harmful gases, vapours and pyrolysis products may be formed.
Hazardous decomposition products: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide.

Advice for firefighters:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical protective clothing. Heating causes rise in pressure with risk of bursting. Use water spray jet to protect personnel and to cool endangered containers. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. Do not allow entering drains or surface water.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes. DAvoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes. Do not breathe vapour/aerosol. Wear personal protection equipment. Provide adequate ventilation. Keep away from unprotected persons.

Environmental precautions:
Do not allow to enter into surface water or drains. If necessary, inform the competent authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Use non-sparking tools. Dilute spilled product with water and absorb with liquid-binding material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid- or universal binding agents). Take up mechanically, placing in appropriate containers for disposal. Keep the content of the container wet with water. Dispose of waste according to applicable legislation. Clean area thoroughly afterwards.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:
The substance/product is registered with strictly controlled conditions as defined in Article 18(4) of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH Regulation) and must therefore be handled as such. Must be handled in closed apparatus or systems only. Provide good ventilation in storage and work areas. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes. Do not breathe vapour/aerosol. Wear personal protection equipment. Immediately remove any contaminated clothing, shoes or stockings. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Keep away from unprotected persons. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Usual measures for fire prevention. Use only non-sparking tools. Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep/Store only in original container. Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect from sunlight. Keep away from sources of ignition. Protect from light. Store in a dark place. Protect from humidity. Store in a place accessible by authorized persons only. Always close containers tightly after the removal of product.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
The substance/product is registered with strictly controlled conditions as defined in Article 18(4) of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH Regulation) and must therefore be handled as such. Provide adequate ventilation. If technical exhaust or ventilation measures are not possible or insufficient, respiratory protection must be worn.

Protective and hygiene measures:
Remove all sources of ignition. Avoid contact with the substance. Immediately remove any contaminated clothing, shoes or stockings. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Provide eye and emergency safety showers. Wash hands before breaks and after work. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

Eye/face protection:

Hand protection:
Wear suitable gloves according to EN 374.
Suitable material: Multilayer glove PE/EVAl/PE (long-time protection)
Suitable material: Nitril rubber (short-time protection)
The quality of the protective gloves resistant to chemicals must be chosen as a function of the specific working place concentration and quantity of hazardous substances. For special purposes, it is recommended to check the resistance to chemicals of the protective gloves mentioned above together with the supplier of these gloves.

Skin protection:
Wear suitable protective clothing. Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work.

Respiratory protection:
In case of vapours or insufficient ventilation respiratory protection is required.
Use suitable breathing apparatus with filter A or ABEK-P3 filter device according to EN 14387.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability:
