Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water for at least 15 minutes
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and
sulphur oxides together with some soot and hydrogen
chloride gas. A self-contained breathing apparatus should
be worn. Suitable extinguishing agents are water spray,
carbon dioxide, foam and dry powder

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Dampen spilt powder and sweep up. Transfer to waste
containers for disposal by incineration. Absorb solution
spills using suitable agents (eg sand, earth, etc), sweep
up and transfer to waste containers for disposal by

Handling and storage

Handling: Use under conditions of good industrial hygiene, minimise
exposure. Respirators satisfying BS 2091B or DIN 58645 part

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method. Waste gas treatment should be used to
remove nitrogen and sulphur oxides and hydrogen chloride

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is not readily biodegradable but is of low
aquatic toxicity.
