Fire-fighting measures

Adapt extinguishing measures to suit the environment. When extinguishing fires, use breathing apparatus with an independent source of air. Cool endangered containers with water in case of fire. Run-off water may be highly acidic and should be neutralized if possible.
Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Sand, foam, CO2, dry extinguisher.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Water.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Not combustible under normal conditions. If involved in a fire it will support combustion In case of fire do not breathe fumes.
Hazardous combustion products may include intense heat, dense black smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon fragments, phosphine, fragments of phosphite/phosphate esters and oxides of phosphorus.
Advice for firefighters: None.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: None.
Environmental precautions: Do not empty into waters or drains. If the product contaminates lakes, rivers or sewages, inform appropriate authorities in accordance with local regulations.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible absorbent materials, e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations
