Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing agents:
CO2, extinguishing powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.
Use fire fighting measures that suit the environment.
For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: No data available
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Vapours spread on the ground to a distant ignition source and flash back.
In case of fire, the following can be released:
Carbon monoxide (CO)
Carbon dioxide
Advice for firefighters:
Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.
Additional information:
Move containers from area if it can be done without risk or cool them with water.
Dispose of fire debris and contaminated fire fighting water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Do not smoke - keep ignition sources away
Environmental precautions:
Do not allow product to reach sewage system or any water course.
Do not allow to penetrate the ground/soil.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Dam up larger quantities and pump into containers.
Small quantities:
Absorb with non-combustible material like sand, soil or diatomite.
Make sure to recycle or dispose of in suitable receptacles.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure good ventilation/exhaustion at the workplace.
Keep receptacles tightly sealed.
Information about protection against explosions and fires:
Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke.
Protect against electrostatic charges.
Fumes can combine with air to form an explosive mixture.
Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles:
Store container tightly sealed at a cool and dry place with sufficient ventilation.
Information about storage in one common storage facility:
Store away from foodstuffs.
Store away from feed.
Refer to national regulations for storing hazardous chemicals.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Additional information about design of technical systems:
Install appropriate mechanical ventilation.
Keep away from open flames and other ignition sources.
Protect against electrostatic charges.
Control parameters:
Components with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace: Not required.
Additional information: The lists that were valid during the creation were used as basis.
Exposure controls:
Personal protective equipment:
General protective and hygienic measures: The usual precautionary measures should be adhered to when handling chemicals.
Breathing equipment:
Not necessary if room is well-ventilated.
If vapors form, use suitable respiratory protective device
In case of brief exposure or low pollution use a respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use a respiratory protective device that is independent of circulating air.
Short term filter device:
Filter A (colour code: brown)
Protection of hands:
Chemical resistant gloves
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Selection of the glove material in consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.
After use of gloves apply skin-cleaning agents and skin cosmetics.
Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/ the chemical mixture.
Material of gloves:
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Penetration time of glove material:
The exact penetration time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
Eye protection: Safety glasses
Body protection: Flame retarding, antistatic protective clothing.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability:
Thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided: No decomposition if used and stored according to specifications.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: If heated above flash point, explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Conditions to avoid: No further relevant information available.
Incompatible materials: No further relevant information available.
Hazardous decomposition products: No hazardous decomposition products; if instructions for storage and handling are followed.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:
Recommendation: Must not be disposed of together with household garbage. Do not allow product to reach sewage system. Must be recycled or disposed of according to the regulations. Waste has to be classified according to the European Waste Catalogue based on the identification of the waste generating source.
Uncleaned packagings:
Recommendation: Disposal must be made according to official regulations.
