Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray jet
Foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry powder

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
May be released in case of fire:
Carbon monoxide
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
organic products of decomposition

Advice for firefighters:
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
Keep out unprotected persons.
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Full protective suit

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Keep unauthorized persons away.
Avoid dust formation.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Pick up mechanically and collect in a suitable container. Avoid formation of dust.
Pack and label wastes like the pure substance. Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.
To absorb spilled substance an approved industrial vacuum cleaner is recommended. If necessary, the spilled substance should be moistened.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see section Exposure controls/personal protection
