Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, sand, dry chemical powder, CO2.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: N/A
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Finely dispersed particles may form combustible/ explosive mixtures in air.
Hazardous combustion products: In case of a fire, oxides of carbon, hydrocarbons, fume and smoke may be generated.
Advice for firefighters: Water spray can be use to keep fire-exposed containers cool. As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, and full protective gear. Approach fire from upwind to avoid hazardous vapors and toxic decomposition products. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Avoid breathing dust/fume. Prevent run off from fire control dilution from entering streams or drinking water supply.

Accidental release measures
