Fire Fighting MeasuresBack to Contents
【Fire Fighting】

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. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Water may be ineffective. Material is lighter than water and a fire may be spread by the use of water. Extinguishing media: Water may be ineffective. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out. In case of fire, use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or alcohol-resistant foam.
Accidental Release MeasuresBack to Contents
【Small spills/leaks】

Absorb spill with inert material, (e.g., dry sand or earth), then place into a chemical waste container. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately, using the appropriate protective equipment. Provide ventilation.
Stability and ReactivityBack to Contents

Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.

Carbon monoxide, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide.
