Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

unsuitable extinguishing media: pressurized water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance
vapours may form explosive mixture with air - in case of fire, the following can be released: carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), smoke, soot.

Advice for firefighters
standard procedure for chemical fires - spray extinguishing media to base of flames - use adequate protections for respiratory apparatus, avoid vapour inhalation.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
for non emergency personnel: in an emergency (i.e. unintentional important release of the product in enclosed space) respiratory protection (Gas filter A, Colour code brown: consider the maximum duration for wear) must be worn. Use insulating device for respiratory protection with an independent air supply in circumstances which are unclear - use adequate protections solvent resistant: security shoes, bodysuit, gloves and protective goggles (see point 8).
for emergency responders: as per non emergency personnel.
emergency procedures: remove any ignition source and ensure adequate ventilation in working areas following accidental releases.

Environmental precautions
keep away from drains - keep away from surface and ground water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
keep away from heat and use non-combustible absorbing sawdust (sand, specific binder). Refer to point 13 for the appropriate methods of waste treatment.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
safe handling: during handling keep original container closed - avoid contact with skin and eyes - wear adequate protective gloves protection and eye/face protection - avoid any sources of ignition - avoid exposing to high temperature during processing - maintain adequate local and general ventilation where product is handled.
hygiene at work: do not ingest or apply to the skin as such - no smoking - remove contaminated clothing - good personal washing routines should be followed - if at risk of contamination, foods, beverages and other articles of consumption must not be stored or consumed at the work areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
container: to be stored in stainless steel drums, preferably under inert atmosphere (nitrogen) with minimum head space, protected from day-light. • take note: the container used during transportation must be considered only as a temporary container and it must not be considered in any case adequate for medium or long term warehousing.
conditions: stored in a dry, aerated place, away from any heat source and ignition source.
temperature: from 5 °C and 20 °C.
