Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, alcohol foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide
may be used. Use water to keep containers cool.

Product arising from burning: Carbon monoxide and dioxide, nitrogen oxides. Other
hazardous decompostion products are ammonia, methanol,
butanol and isocyanate.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Firefighters should wear self-contained positive pressure
breathing appartus and full fire-fighting protective
clothing.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Sources of ignition should be removed from the area of any
spillage of the preparations. which contain butanol. Spills
should be covered with an inert absorbent material and swept
up into a waste disposal container. After containing the
spill and collecting the substance, the area should be
flushed with water.

Workers handling the spills should wear full protective
clothing and a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Impervious footwear should also be worn.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance is supplied as a preparation in butanol
solution. Handling precautions etc, are governed primarily
by the presence of butanol in the preparation.

Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Eye/face
protection, protective clothing and impermeable gloves
should be worn when handling the preparations. Face and
hands should be washed thoroughly with soap and water before
eating, drinking or smoking. The preparations should not be
used in close proximity to heat or flames or other sources
of ignition.
