Unsuitable extinguishing Media

Direct water jet may spread the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Decomposes in a fire giving off toxic fumes: Hydrogen cyanide and Carbon monoxide.

Advice for fire-fighters

Fire fighters should wear complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus. Do not breathe fumes. Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Avoid run off to waterways and sewers.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Caution - spillages may be slippery. Stop leak if safe to do so. Evacuate if necessary. Remove or make safe all sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing fumes. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Wear protective gloves/eye protection/face protection. Avoid direct contact with the substance. Remove contaminated clothing and wash clothing before reuse. Wash hands thoroughly after handling.
