SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
NFPA flammability class: IIIB
Flash point: >200 °F (>93.3 °C) Closed Cup
LEL Not Available
UEL Not Available
Fire and explosive properties
Product is not considered a fire hazard, but will burn if ignited.
NFPA Class IIIB (Combustible liquid): Use water sp
ray, ABC dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide. Water or foam may cause frothing. Use water to
keep fire-exposed containers cool. Water spray may be used to flush spills away from exposures.
Fire fighting instructions
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) equipped with a full facepiece and operated in a pressure-demand mode (or other positive pressure mode) and approved protective clothing. Personnel without suitable respiratory protection must leave the area to prevent significant exposure to hazardous gases from combustion, burning or decomposition. In an enclosed or poorly ventilated area, wear SCBA during cleanup immediately after a fire as well as during the attack phase of firefighting operations.
Unusual fire/explosion hazards
Irritating or toxic substances will be emitted upon burning, combustion or decomposition.
SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Contain by diking with sand, earth or other non-combustible material. If spilled in an enclosed area, ventilate. Do not flush liquid into public sewer, water systems or surface waters.
Wear proper personal protective clothing and equipment. Do not flush liquid into public sewer, water systems or surface waters. Eliminate ignition sources. Absorb spill with an inert material. Place into labeled, closed container; store in safe location to await disposal.
SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapors. Wash thouroughly after handling.
Keep in closed or covered containers when not in use. Store in a cool, dry place with adequate ventilation. Do not store near heat or open flames.
SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Use and store only with adequate ventilation or use respiratory protection.
If vapors are present, use a NIOSH/MSHA approved positive pressure, supplier air respirator.
If potential for splashing is present, splash goggles or a full-face shield should be worn.
Do not allow any skin contact. If potential for skin contact is present, impervious protection clothing should be worn. Neoprene coated fabric is recommended for this application.
