Clear fire area of all non-emergency personnel.

Specific Hazards : Hazardous combustion products may include: A complex

mixture of airborne solid and liquid particulates and gases

(smoke). Carbon monoxide. Oxides of sulphur. Unidentified

organic and inorganic compounds. Carbon monoxide may be

evolved if incomplete combustion occurs. Will float and can be

reignited on surface water. Flammable vapours may be present

even at temperatures below the flash point.

Suitable Extinguishing

Media

: Foam, water spray or fog. Dry chemical powder, carbon

dioxide, sand or earth may be used for small fires only.

Unsuitable Extinguishing

Media

: Do not use direct water jets on the burning product as they

could cause a steam explosion and spread of the fire.

Simultaneous use of foam and water on the same surface is to

be avoided as water destroys the foam.

Protective Equipment for

Firefighters

: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus.

Additional Advice : Keep adjacent containers cool by spraying with water.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Avoid contact with spilled or released material. For guidance on selection of personal protective

equipment see Chapter 8 of this Material Safety Data Sheet. See Chapter 13 for information on

disposal. Observe the relevant local and international regulations. Evacuate the area of all nonessential

personnel. Ventilate contaminated area thoroughly.

Protective measures : Do not breathe fumes, vapour. Do not operate electrical

equipment. Shut off leaks, if possible without personal risks.

Remove all possible sources of ignition in the surrounding

area. Use appropriate containment (of product and fire fighting

water) to avoid environmental contamination. Prevent from

spreading or entering drains, ditches or rivers by using sand,

earth, or other appropriate barriers. Attempt to disperse the

vapour or to direct its flow to a safe location for example by

using fog sprays. Take precautionary measures against static

discharge. Ensure electrical continuity by bonding and

grounding (earthing) all equipment.

Clean Up Methods : For small liquid spills (< 1 drum), transfer by mechanical means

to a labelled, sealable container for product recovery or safe

disposal. Allow residues to evaporate or soak up with an

appropriate absorbent material and dispose of safely. Remove

contaminated soil and dispose of safely.

General Precautions : Avoid breathing vapours or contact with material. Only use in

well ventilated areas. Wash thoroughly after handling. For

guidance on selection of personal protective equipment see

Chapter 8 of this Material Safety Data Sheet. Use the

information in this data sheet as input to a risk assessment of

local circumstances to help determine appropriate controls for

safe handling, storage and disposal of this material. Air-dry

contaminated clothing in a well-ventilated area before

laundering. Properly dispose of any contaminated rags or

cleaning materials in order to prevent fires. Prevent spillages.

Use local exhaust ventilation if there is risk of inhalation of

vapours, mists or aerosols. Never siphon by mouth.

Contaminated leather articles including shoes cannot be

decontaminated and should be destroyed to prevent reuse. For

comprehensive advice on handling, product transfer, storage

and tank cleaning refer to the product supplier.

Handling : Avoid inhaling vapour and/or mists. Avoid prolonged or

repeated contact with skin. When using do not eat or drink.

Extinguish any naked flames. Do not smoke. Remove ignition

sources. Avoid sparks. Earth all equipment. Electrostatic

charges may be generated during pumping. Electrostatic

discharge may cause fire.

Keep in a bunded area with a sealed (low permeability) floor, to

provide containment against spillage. Prevent ingress of water.

Product Transfer : Avoid splash filling. Wait 2 minutes after tank filling (for tanks

such as those on road tanker vehicles) before opening hatches

or manholes. Wait 30 minutes after tank filling (for large

storage tanks) before opening hatches or manholes. Keep

containers closed when not in use. Do not use compressed air

for filling, discharging or handling. Contamination resulting from

product transfer may give rise to light hydrocarbon vapour in

the headspace of tanks that have previously contained

gasoline. This vapour may explode if there is a source of

ignition. Partly filled containers present a greater hazard than

those that are full, therefore handling, transfer and sampling

activities need special care.

Recommended Materials : For containers, or container linings use mild steel, stainless

steel. Aluminium may also be used for applications where it

does not present an unnecessary fire hazard. Examples of

suitable materials are: high density polyethylene (HDPE) and

Viton (FKM), which have been specifically tested for

compatibility with this product. For container linings, use

amine-adduct cured epoxy paint. For seals and gaskets use:

graphite, PTFE, Viton A, Viton B.

Unsuitable Materials : Some synthetic materials may be unsuitable for containers or

container linings depending on the material specification and

intended use. Examples of materials to avoid are: natural

rubber (NR), nitrile rubber (NBR), ethylene propylene rubber

(EPDM), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polystyrene,

polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyisobutylene. However, some may

be suitable for glove materials.

Container Advice : Containers, even those that have been emptied, can contain

explosive vapours. Do not cut, drill, grind, weld or perform

similar operations on or near containers.

Additional Information : Exposure to this product should be reduced as low as

reasonably practicable. Reference should be made to the

Health and Safety Executive’s publication “COSHH Essentials”.

Ensure that all local regulations regarding handling and storage

facilities are followed.
