For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents

. Water with a full water jet.

Special hazards caused by the material, its products of combustion or resulting gases:

. Formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or in case of fire.

. Can be released in case of fire

. Carbon monoxide (CO)

Protective equipment:

. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace:

.  108-95-2   Phenol

.  WEL              Long-term value: 2 ppm

.                       Sk

Personal protective equipment

General protective and hygienic measures

.  Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food.

.  Take off immediately all contaminated clothing

.  Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.

.  Store protective clothing separately.

.  Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

Breathing equipment:

.  In case of brief exposure or low pollution use breathing filter apparatus. In case of intensive or longer exposure

.  use breathing apparatus that is independent of circulating air.

.  Filter ABEK

Protection of hands:

.  Heat protection gloves

.  Only use chemical-protective gloves with CE-labelling of category III (EN 374).

Material of gloves

.  The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality

.  and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Penetration time of glove material

.  The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

For the permanent contact in work areas without heightened risk of injury (e.g. Laboratory) gloves made

of the following material are suitable:

.  Nitril rubber, NBR

.  Butyl rubber, BR

.  e.g. glove of Fa. KCL, (sitemap): Camatril (art.-no. 731, 730, level 2, >30min),

.    Butoject (art.-no.: 898, level 6, >480min)

Eye protection:

. Tightly sealed safety glasses.

Materials to be avoided:

. -

Dangerous reactions

. No dangerous reactions known

Dangerous products of decomposition:

. Benzene

. Phenol

Disposal considerations



.  Remove according to local authority recommendations, e.g. convey to a suitable incinerator.

European waste catalogue

. The waste code classification is to be carried out according to the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) specifically

. for each branch of industry and each type of process.

Uncleaned packagings:


. Packagings that cannot be cleaned are to be disposed of in the same manner as the product.

. Disposal must be made according to official regulations.
