Special protective equipment for fire fighting:
Do not stay in dangerous zone without suitable chemical protection clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Other information:
Cool container with spray water from a save distance.
Prevent fire-fighting water from entering surface water or groundwater.

6. Accidental release measures
Person-related precautionary measures:
Do not inhale vapours/aerosols. Ensure supply of fresh air in enclosed rooms.

Procedures for cleaning / absorption:
Take up with liquid-absorbent material (e.g. Chemizorb ). Forward for disposal. Clean up affected area.

Environmental-protection measures:
Do not allow to enter sewerage system.

7. Handling and storage
Take measures to prevent electrostatic charging.

Tightly closed. In a well-ventilated place. Keep away from sources of ignition and heat. At +5C to +30C.

Requirements for storage rooms and containers:
Do not use light-weight-metal containers.

13. Disposal considerations
There are no uniform EC Regulations for the disposal of chemicals or residues. Chemical residues generally count as special waste. The disposal of the latter is regulated in the EC member countries through corresponding laws and regulations. We recommend that you contact either the authorities in charge or approved waste disposal companies which will advise you on how to dispose of special waste.

Disposal in compliance with official regulations. Handle contaminated packaging in the same way as the substance itself. If not officially specified differently, non-contaminated packaging may be treated like household waste or recycled.
