Unsuitable extinguishing media
For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Risk of dust explosion.
Fire may cause evolution of:
nitrogen oxides, Hydrogen chloride gas
Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire
5.3 Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.
Further information
Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Consult local authorities for acceptable exposure limits.
Engineering measures : Use only with adequate ventilation. If user operations generate dust, fumes, gas, vapor
or mist, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls
to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory
limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas, vapor or dust concentrations
below any lower explosive limits. Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment.
Hygiene measures : Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before
eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate
techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash
contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers
are close to the workstation location.
Personal protection
Respiratory : Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved
standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be
based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe
working limits of the selected respirator.
Hands : Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be
worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is
necessary. Recommended: nitrile rubber
Eyes : Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists or
dusts. If operating conditions cause high dust concentrations to be produced, use dust
goggles. Recommended: safety glasses with side-shields , face shield
Skin : Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being
performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling
this product.
Recommended: lab coat
Environmental exposure
: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure they
comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some cases,
fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be
necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.
