dioxide and dry powder.

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon and nitrogen oxides
together with some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Sweep up spills, avoiding dust formation, and place in a
waste disposal container. Dispose of waste by incineration
at an approved facility. If necessary, dampen area with
water before sweeping up.
