EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Suitable extinguishing media: Powder
Unsitable Extinguishing Media: Water or foam if there is a risk of contact with the product.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE
Heated product or contact with water may cause strong reaction and emit toxic and corrosive fumes. Titanium tetrachloride decomposes in water to titanium dioxide and hydrochloric acid.

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS
Cool exposed containers with water spray if there is no risk of contact with product. Move container if this can be done safely. Prevent extinguishing media to reach drains or waterways since this could be contaminated. Use self-sustained breathing mask. Protective suit.
