Suitable extinguishing agents: CO₂, sand, extinguishing powder. Do not use water.

For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: Water.

Special hazards caused by the material, its products of combustion or flue gases: Corrosive gases/vapours. Poisonous gases/vapours. Hydrogen chloride (HCl). Carbon monoxide (CO) and Carbon dioxide (CO₂).

Protective equipment: Put on breathing apparatus.

Additional information Collect contaminated fire fighting water separately. It must not enter drains.

Accidental release measures

Person-related safety precautions: Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Use breathing protection against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.

Measures for environmental protection: Do not allow to enter drainage system, surface or ground water.

Measures for cleaning/collecting: Collect mechanically. Dispose of contaminated material as waste according to disposal considerations. Keep away from water. Ensure adequate ventilation.

Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems is available at the use site.

Components with critical values that require monitoring at the workplace: Observe all workplace limits for dust.

Additional information: The lists that were valid during the compilation were used as basis.

Personal protective equipment
General protective and hygienic measures: Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food. Instantly remove any contaminated garments. Do not inhale dust / smoke / mist. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin. Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.
Breathing equipment: Dust proof mask - particle filter mask
Protection of hands: Protective gloves. The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation. Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.
Material of gloves: The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Penetration time of glove material: The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
Eye protection: Tightly sealed safety glasses
Body protection: Protective work clothing
