Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing media:       Use water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder, or appropriate foam for extinction.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:       Not available.

5.2 Special hazards arising from the

substance or mixture       When heated to decomposition, emits acrid fumes.

5.3 Special fire fighting methods and

special protective actions for  

fire-fighters:       Firefighters should wear full fire fighting turn-out gear and respiratory protection (SCBA). Cool container with water spray.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel:       Use personal protection recommended in Section 8. Isolate the hazard area and deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel.

6.1.2 For emergency responders:       Wear an appropriate NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator if dust is generated. Ensure adequate ventilation.

6.2 Environmental Precautions:       Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Discharge into the environment must be avoided.

6.3 Methods for Containment and Cleaning

up:       Sweep up spill and place in sealed bag or container for disposal. Ventilate and wash spill area after pickup is complete. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

6.4 Reference to other sections:       See Section 7 for information on safe handling.

See Section 8 for information on personal protection equipment.

See Section 13 for information on disposal.
