Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:       Water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Not known.

Exposure hazards (combustion products): On burning, this material may generate carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.

Special protective equipment for firefighters:       In the event of fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and a chemical protective suit.

Special methods/instructions: Use water spray to cool containers exposed to fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8) during cleaning. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid inhalation.

Environmental precautions: None.

Methods for cleaning up: Pick up with absorbent material (sand, earth or other non-combustible material). Residual traces can be flushed away with water.
