HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent, and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use proper PPE as indicated in Section 8.
Environmental precautions
Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid breathing dust, vapour, mist, or gas. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
