Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
water spray jet, alcohol-resistant foam

Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons
carbon dioxide, dry powder, strong water jet

Special hazards from the substance itself, its combustion products or from its vapours
In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO)
Nitrous gases (NOx)
Sulphur trioxide (SO3)

Special protective equipment for firefighting
Use self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Wear suitable personal protective equipment.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Keep away sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions
Do not allow to enter drains or waterways

Methods for cleaning up/taking up
Pick up mechanically. Rinse away rest with warm water.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling
Open and handle container with care.
Provide good ventilation when handling large quantities.
Take precautionary measures against electrostatic loading.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion
The product is not highly flammable.
Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charging. In order to avoid electrostatic charging, do not roll or drag the drum, After transportation, the container should be allowed to stand for one hour before opening, thus allowing sufficient time for charge relaxation in the container.
Flammable solvent vapours may collect in the vapour spaces of closed containers. Keep away from fire and other sources of ignition.

Further information on storage conditions
Keep container tightly closed and dry in a cool, well-ventilated place
Keep only in the original container at temperature not exceeding 40 °C
Protect from direct sunlight
Product is hygroscopic.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls

General protective measures
Do not inhale vapours
Avoid contact with eyes and skin

Hygiene measures
Observe the usual precautions when handling chemicals.

Respiratory protection : Use respiratory protection in case of insufficient exhaust ventilation or prolonged exposure
Full mask to standard DIN EN 136
Filter A (organic gases and vapours) to standard DIN EN 141
The use of filter apparatus presupposes that the environment atmosphere contains at least 17% oxygen by volume, and does not exceed the maximum gas concentration, usually 0.5% by volume. Relevant guidelines to be considered include EN 136/141/143/371/372 as well as other national
regulations.

Hand protection : For long-term exposure:
Butyl rubber gloves.
Minimum thickness (glove): not determined
With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.
For short-term exposure (splash protection):
Nitrile rubber gloves.
Minimum thickness (glove): not determined
With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.

These types of protective gloves are offered by various manufacturers. Please note the manufacturers´ detailed statements, especially about the minimum thickness and the minimum breakthrough time. Consider also the particular working conditions under which the gloves are being used.

Eye protection : Depending on the risk, wear sufficient eye protection (safety glasses with side protection or goggles, and if necessary, face shield.)
For details, see the BG-rules number 192.
