5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Small fire: Use dry chemical, CO₂, water spray or appropiate foam.
Large fire: use water spray, fog or foam.
If safe to do so, move undamaged containers from the fire area. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after the fire is out.
HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Solutions will not burn or support combustion. However contact with aluminium, zinc or tin may generate explosive hydrogen gas. Decomposition products include sodium oxide and oxides of carbon. Fire fighters and others who may be exposed to combustion products during fire should wear full protective clothing including positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Wear SCBA with full face-piece, operated in positive pressure mode when fighting fire.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Take off contaminated clothing and wash before reuse
Environmental precautions
Prevent from entering into drains, ditches or rivers.
Prevent spill from entering waterways. Restrict access to area. Remove chemicals that can react with the spilled material. Spills are slippery
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Absorb or contain liquid with sand, earth or spill control material. Shovel up using non sparking tools and place in a labelled, sealable container for subsequent safe disposal. Put leaking containers in a labelled drum or overdrum.
Use inert material such as sand or earth to contain spill or leak.
Absorb spills with chemical absorber or vermiculite and dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Conditions for safe storage
Keep container tightly closed and in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Keep away from direct sunlight.

Engineering controls
In industrial situations maintain the concentrations values below the TWA. This may be achieved by process modification, use of local exhaust ventilation, capturing substances at the source, or other methods.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
The use of a face shield, chemical goggles or safety glasses with side shield protection as appropriate. Must comply with Australian Standards AS 1337 and be selected and used in accordance with AS 1336.
Skin protection
Hand protection should comply with AS 2161, Occupational protective gloves - Selection, use and maintenance. Recommended: Nitrile or neoprene.
Body protection
Final choice of personal protective equipment will depend on individual circumstances and/or according to risk assessments undertaken.
Personal Protective Equipment Safety boots in industrial situations is advisory, foot protection should comply with AS 2210, Occupational protective footwear -Guide to selection, care and use.
Clean clothing or protective clothing should be worn, preferably with an apron.
Clothing for protection against chemicals should comply with AS 3765 Clothing for Protection Against Hazardous Chemicals. Body Protection
Always wash hands before smoking, eating or using the toilet. Wash contaminated clothing and other protective equipment before storing or re-using.
Respiratory protection
Where ventilation is not adequate, respiratory protection may be required. Avoid breathing vapours or mists. Select and use respirators in accordance with AS 1716 - Respiratory Protective Devices and be selected in accordance with AS 1715 - Selection, Use and Maintenance of Respiratory Protective Devices. When mists or vapours exceed the exposure standards then the use of the following is recommended: Approved respirator with organic vapour and dust/mist filters.
