No hazards known at this time.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed


Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

 water spray jet


 carbon dioxide

 dry powder

Special hazards from the substance itself or mixture:

In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrous gases (NOx), Hydrogen chloride (HCl)

Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons.

Advice for firefighters:

Special protective equipment for firefighters:

Self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions: Wear suitable protective clothing.

Environmental precautions       : Do not empty into drains.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up:       Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).

Can be landfilled or incinerated, when in compliance with local regulations.
