Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
-foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide

Fire and Explosion Hazards:
- Heating of container(s) will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting and subsequent explosion.
- Gives off toxic and irritant fumes when heated or burning.
- May form explosive mixture with air at elevated ambient temperature.
- May be liable to spontaneous combustion.
- The vapour may be invisible and is heavier than air. It spreads along the ground and may enter sewers and basements.

Fire-fighting measures:
- Keep container(s) cool with water.
- Extinguish with foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide.
- Do not use water jet to extinguish.
- Use water spray to knock down fire fumes if possible.
- Avoid unnecessary run-off of extinguishing media which may cause pollution.

Accidental release measures

Stop leaks if possible.
Contain spillage by any means available.
Check explosive limits.
Use low sparking hand tools and intrinsically safe equipment.
Absorb liquid in sand or earth or any other suitable material, or cover with foam.
If substance has entered a water course or sewer, inform the responsible authority.
Ventilate sewers and basements where there is no risk to personnel or public.
