Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: No special requirements needed. Water is recommended for
fires involving packaging.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in
a fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen
oxides and chlorine containing compounds).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.


Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Fence or cordon the affected area and do not allow
individuals to touch or walk through the spilled material
unless wearing appropriate protective equiment. Avoid dust
generation.


Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, surface drainage
systems and poorly ventilated areas. If spill is outdoors,
cover with plastic sheet to minimise spreading or contact
with rain.


Collect and place in a suitable, properly labelled container
for recovery or disposal. Following removal of spillage,
wash down spillage area with copious amounts of water only
if waste water can be directed to an on-site waste water
treatment system.


No specific decontamination or detoxification procedures
have been identified for this material. Consider the use of
water, detergent solutions, or other soluble solvents for
clean-up and decontamination operations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.


Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166.


Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be
used, it must be capable of adequately controlling
exposure, be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the
appropriate international or national standards, such as a
dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.


These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Keep in tightly closed containers or packages away from
sources of ignition.


Avoid prolongued storage at elevated temperatures (greater
than room temperature, approximately 20 deg C).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Anti-static liners in fibreboard drums.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration. In principle, it may be
possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated

material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is
sensitising. There were also concerns over potential
mutagenicity due to a positive result in an Ames study and a
mouse lymphoma assay, however, these have been mitigated by
a negative result in a mouse micronucleus assay. No
chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous health properties.


The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate handling
and storage.


No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and
nitrogen oxides and chlorine containing compunds) could be
formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly
tothe sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
unlikely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
