After swallowing
Do not induce vomiting. Danger of aspiration. Seek medical advice immediately and produce the label or packaging.

Fire-fighting measures

General information:
Fight fire from a safe distance.
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, extinguishing powder, alcohol-resistant foam. For small amounts: carbon dioxide.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
water jet.
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products, resulting gases:
Hazardous combustion products: hydrogen chloride.
Special protective equipment for fire fighting:
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Wear personal protection equipment. Avoid inhaling mists and vapours. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Environmental precautions
Contain any fluid that runs out using suitable material (e.g. earth). Prevent material from entering sewers or surface waters. Dispose of in prescribed marked containers.
Methods for cleaning up
Absorb with a liquid binding material such as diatomaceous earth and dispose of according to local/state/federal regulations. Contain larger amounts and pump up into suitable containers. Do not flush away with water.
Further information:
Eliminate all sources of ignition.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Must be syphoned off in situ. Keep away from incompatible substances in accordance with section 10.2 of SDB.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Cool endangered containers with water. Flammable vapors may accumulate and form explosive mixtures with air in containers, process vessels, including partial, empty and uncleaned containers and vessels, or other enclosed spaces. Keep away from open flames, heat and sparks. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charging.
Storage:
Conditions for storage rooms and vessels:
Do not store in containers made of aluminum or other light metals.
Advice for storage of incompatible materials:
none known .
Further information for storage:
Keep in the original container in a cool well ventilated place. Keep container dry and tightly closed. Protect against moisture.

Disposal considerations

Material:
Recommendation:
Dispose of according to regulations by incineration in a special waste incinerator. Observe local/state/federal regulations.
