    Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do no use a water jet.

    5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

    Flammable liquid. Combustible solid. Dust/air mixtures may ignite or explode

    5.3. Advice for fire fighters:

    Special protective equipment for fire fighters: Fire fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-

    contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode. Prevent mixing with alkali and amines materials.

    Further information: Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving a personal risk or without suitable training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Do not allow fire extinguishing water to contaminate surface or groundwater systems.

    6. Accidental release measures

    6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

    Advice for non-emergency personnel: Evacuate the danger zone; follow emergency precautions. Secure emergency

    assistance immediately. Avoid contact with the material; do not breathe dusts. If possible, provide additional ventilation.

    Advice for emergency responders: Do not take action without proper training and emergency equipment. See Section 8 for additional information. Evacuate surrounding areas. Eliminate all ignition sources including flares and all open flames. Avoid all contact with spilled material. Maintain adequate ventilation and wear appropriate respiratory protection.

    6.2. Environmental precautions:

    Avoid dispersal of spilled material, runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

    Stop leak or spill if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach release from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, surface waters, basements or confined areas. Wash spillage into effluent treatment plant. Contain and collect spillage using appropriate personal protective equipment. Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handing chemical products or if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Collect and contain spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material (e.g. sand, earth, vermic
