vomiting, agitation<(>,<)> spasms, CNS disorders, cardiovascular disorders.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Water, Carbon dioxide (CO₂), Foam, Dry powder
Unsuitable extinguishing media
For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.
Combustible material
Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.
Explosive decomposition possible on heating.
Avoid shock and friction.
Fire may cause evolution of:
Hydrogen fluoride, nitrogen oxides
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by
keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.
Further information
Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Suppress (knock down)
gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating
surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

Advice for non-emergency personnel: Avoid substance contact. Avoid generation of dusts; do
not inhale dusts. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency
procedures, consult an expert.
Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains. Risk of explosion
