Appropriate Extinguishing Media
Use standard firefighting techniques in extinguishing fires involving this product. High-pressure water hose may spread product from broken containers increasing contamination hazards. Contaminated buildings, areas and equipment must not be use until they are properly decontaminated.
Fire Fighting Guidance
This product is not considered flammable. However, under fire conditions, it may decompose to give off toxic materials. A self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
In Case of Spills or Leaks
A small spill can be handled routinely. Use adequate ventilation and wear an air-supplied respirator to prevent inhalation. Wear suitable protective clothing and eye protection to prevent skin and eye contact. Sweep up spilled material being careful not to create dust. Place sweepings in an open drum. Generously cover the contaminated areas with common household powdered detergent. Using a stiff brush and small amounts of water, work the detergent into the remaining spilled material forming a slurry. Brush the slurry into cracks and crevices and allow to stand for 2-3 minutes. Be careful to completely avoid skin or eye contact. Do not splatter on oneself or bystanders. Spread a suitable absorbent such as clay, sawdust or kitty litter on the slurry liquid. Sweep up and shovel into waste drums. Repeat if necessary. Rinse with small amount of water and use absorbent to collect the wash solution. Shovel into the open drum. Seal drum and dispose in accordance with local, state, and federal requirements. Large spills should be handled according to a spill plan.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
