Suitable extinguishing media: Foam, Water, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry powder, Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or released gases: Fire may cause evolution of: Gaseous hydrogen chloride (HCl).
Special protective equipment for firefighting: Personal protection through wearing a tightly closed chemical protection suit and a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Additional information on firefighting: Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Use personal protective equipment.


Environmental precautions
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Avoid subsoil penetration.

Methods for cleaning up

We declare that the substance is manufactured under strictly controlled conditions during its whole lifecycle. Furthermore, we have received confirmation from the user that the synthesis of other substance from this intermediate takes place under strictly controlled conditions during its whole lifecycle as described under Article 18(4) and Section 2.1 of the Guidance for Intermediates.

Effectiveness:
Prevention of exposure since the substance is rigorously contained by technical means during its whole lifecycle and procedural and control technologies are used to minimise emission and any resulting exposure as described under Article 18(4).

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous decomposition products: Gaseous hydrogen chloride (HCl).

Hazardous reactions: Incompatible with bases. Gives off hydrogen by reaction with metals.

Disposal considerations

Disposal considerations
Dispose of in accordance with the European Directives on waste and hazardous waste. Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities.

Uncleaned empty packaging
Dispose of in accordance with the European Directives on waste and hazardous waste.
