Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: CO2, Foam, Powder and Water fog/spray.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Self contained breathing apparatus should be worn as acrid fumes are produced as product decomposes.

Accidental release measures

Recover materials if possible. Also absorb spilled substance in sand or inert substance and remove to a safe place. Prevent material entering drains with absorbent socks and drain protectors. Cover material with foam to prevent smelly fumes and possible fire. After absorption and recovery, wash away traces with large amounts of water. Any absorbent material used to mop up a spill to be disposed of in a closed metal container.
Protective Equipment to be worn for spill – Chemical splash resistant overalls, Wellingtons or boots, chemical resistant PVC gauntlets and organic vapour respirator

Handling and storage

HANDLING:
Use in well ventilated areas. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Open and handle containers with care. Store in original containers. Avoid breathing vapours. Avoid accumulation of static charge, especially in high mixing systems (low electrical conductivity). Emergency shower and eyewash should be close by. Electrical equipment to be suitable for electrical apparatus group and temperature class of the material.
STORAGE:
