Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing agents:

CO2, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:


- Non-flammable.

- Keep packages near the fire cool, to prevent pressurised containers from bursting. But in case of dust, it may be moderately flammable.

- A fire will often produce a thick black smoke. Exposure to decomposition products may be hazardous to health.

- Do not breathe in smoke.

- In the event of a fire, the following may be formed:

- carbon monoxide (CO)

- carbon dioxide (CO2)

Advice for firefighters:

Due to the toxicity of the gas emitted on thermal decomposition of the products, fire-fighting personnel are to be equipped with autonomous insulating breathing apparatus.

• Protective equipment: Mouth respiratory protective device.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

For non fire-fighters

- Avoid any contact with the skin and eyes.
