Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Alcohol-resistant foam, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Water spray jet

Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Specific hazards during fire-fighting:
In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO), Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Do not inhale explosion and/or combustion gases In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:

Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be collected and disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons must be kept away. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Remove persons to safety.
The danger areas must be delimited and identified using rele-vant warning and safety signs.

Environmental precautions :
Do not allow entry to drains,water courses or soil. Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Prevent spread over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers).

Methods for cleaning up: Pick up with liquid binding materials and if necessary fill in containers capable of being locked. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations. When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal". Containers in which spilt substance has been collected must be adequately labelled.

Handling and storage

Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary). Avoid formation of aerosols. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact of the substance. Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: The product is combustible. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against build-up of electrostatic charges, e.g earthing during loading and off-loading operations.
Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection.

Product should be worked up in closed equipment as far as possible. Apply technical measures to comply with the occupational exposure limits. This should be achieved by a good general extraction and/or -if practically feasible- by the use of a local exhaust ventilation.

Hygiene measures: Do not eat, drink or smoke during work time. Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again.
Garments that cannot be cleaned must be destroyed (burnt). Keep away from food and drink. Clean hands and face during work intervals and after work.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Eye protection:

Depending on the risk, wear sufficient eye protection (safety glasses with side protection or goggles, and if necessary, face shield.

Hand protection:

Choose gloves to protect hands against chemicals depending on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous substance and specific to place of work. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it. Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact).
Suitable: Butyl rubber gloves.
Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough.
Gloves must be rinsed thoroughly after use.

Body protection:

Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concentration and amount of dangerous substances, and to the specific workplace, e.g. apron, boots, protective suit (EN 14605, EN ISO 13982-1, EN 13034).

Respiratory protection:

If the occupational exposure limits cannot be met, in exceptional cases suitable respiratory equipment should be worn only for a short period of time.
Respiratory protection complying with DIN EN 14387. Suitable: Respirator with filter type ABEK

Stability and reactivity

If handled and stored correctly the substance is stable. No dangerous reactions are known under normal conditions.
Avoid contact to strong bases and acids (saponification of the ester). Avoid contact to strong oxidizers.
Keep away from sources of ignition.

Disposal considerations

This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Dispose of in conjunction with appropriate waste disposal authorities and in accordance with disposal regulations. Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of as product waste.
