Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media : Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Unsuitable extinguishing : High volume water jet

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during firefighting

: Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water

courses.

Hazardous combustion products

: Hazardous decomposition products due to incomplete combustion

5.3 Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment

for firefighters

: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.

Further information : Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This

must not be discharged into drains.

Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must

be disposed of in accordance with local regulations

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions : Use personal protective equipment.

Avoid dust formation.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

6.2 Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions : Prevent product from entering drains.

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform

respective authorities.

6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up : Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece).

6.4 Reference to other sections

For personal protection see section 8

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling : Avoid formation of respirable particles.

Do not breathe vapours/dust.

Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.

Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

For personal protection see section 8.

Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.

Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms

Persons susceptible to skin sensitisation problems or asthma,

allergies, chronic or recurrent respiratory disease should not

be employed in any process in which this mixture is being

used.

Advice on protection against

fire and explosion

: Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust

is formed.

Hygiene measures : General industrial hygiene practice. Wash hands before

breaks and immediately after handling the product.

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage

areas and containers

: Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated

place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological

safety standards. To maintain product quality, do not store in

heat or direct sunlight.

Further information on storage stability

: Keep in a dry place.

No decomposition if stored and applied as directed
