SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry chemical, foam, water spray, carbon dioxide.
Specific hazards arising from the
chemical:
Explosion risk in case of fire. Fight fire remotely due to the risk of explosion. Take care as it may
decompose upon combustion or in high temperatures to generate poisonous fume.
Hazardous combustion products: These products include: Carbon oxides Nitrogen oxides Halogenated compounds Metallic oxides
Other specific hazards: WARNING: Highly toxic HCl gas is produced during combustion.
Advice for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus if possible.
Combat fire from a sheltered position.


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Use personal protective equipment. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Entry to
non-involved personnel should be controlled around the leakage area by roping off, etc.
Environmental precautions: Be careful not to let it flow into rivers, etc., since adverse effects on the environment are concerned.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Sweep dust to collect it into an airtight container, taking care not to disperse it. Adhered or collected
material should be promptly disposed of, in accordance with appropriate laws and regulations.
Prevention of secondary hazards: Remove all sources of ignition. Fire-extinguishing devices should be prepared in case of a fire. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Ensure all leaks are completely removed to prevent subsequent ignition.


SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for safe handling: Handling is performed in a well ventilated place. Wear suitable protective equipment. Prevent dispersion of dust. Keep away from heat. Wash hands and face thoroughly after handling.
Use a closed system if possible. Use a local exhaust if dust or aerosol will be generated.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Don't leave used equipment or rag. This product may ignite if it is left stuck on combustibles such as paper, rags, etc.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed. Store in a cool, dark and well-ventilated place.
Store locked up. Be sure not to give the container unexpected impacts, such as falling down or falling off.
Store away from combustibles.
Packaging material: Comply with laws.


SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Appropriate engineering controls: Follow safe industrial engineering/laboratory practices when handling any chemical. Install a closed system or local exhaust. Also install safety shower and eye bath.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection: Dust respirator, self-contained breathing apparatus(SCBA), supplied air respirator, etc. Use respirators approved under appropriate government standards and follow local and national regulations.
