Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon monoxide, dry foam or water

Product arising from burning: Anticipated to contain oxides of carbon and nitrogen,
together with fluorine.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Self contained breathing apparatus and full protective
clothing should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective clothing.

Spillages of solid material should be removed by vacuuming,
transferred to suitable solid waste containers for disposal
by incineration.

Spillages of the substance in solution should be absorbed
onto inert material such as sand or soil, and transfer to
suitable waste containers for disposal by incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: Workers handling the substance should wear appropriate
personal protective equipment (impervious gloves, safety
glasses, lab coat, boots). If dust concentrations are
greater than 5 mg/m3 an appropriate dust respirator should
be used. Wash hands and arms thoroughly after handling

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated room away from sources
of ignition.

Kegs are stored at ambient temperature on pallets which are
held in racking.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Hard cardboard, double lined, 30 kg kegs
