Firefighting Instructions: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to   
 
local circumstances and the surrounding environment. Use water spray to cool    
 
unopened containers. Remove undamaged containers from fire area if it is safe to
 
do so. Evacuate area.                                                           
 
Protection During Firefighting: In the event of fire, wear self-contained       
 
breathing apparatus. Use personal protective equipment.                         
 

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES                                          
 


6.1.  Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures
General Measures:  Remove all sources of ignition. Use personal protective      
 
equipment. Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equipment        
 
recommendations.                                                                
 


6.1.1.      For Non-emergency Personnel
Protective Equipment:                                                           
 
Emergency Procedures:                                                           
 


6.1.2.      For Emergency Responders
Protective Equipment: Use personal protective equipment. Follow safe handling   
 
advice and personal protective equipment recommendations.                       
 
Emergency Procedures:                                                           
 


6.2.  Environmental Precautions
Discharge into the environment must be avoided. Prevent further leakage or      
 
spillage if safe to do so. Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by
containment
or oil barriers). Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. Local
authorities
should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.                 
 


6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment: Non-sparking tools should be used. Soak up with inert absorbent
 
material. Suppress (knock down) gases/vapors/mists with a water spray jet. For  
 
large spills, provide diking or other appropriate containment to keep material  
 
from spreading. If diked material can be pumped, store recovered material in    
 
appropriate container.                                                          
 
Methods for Cleaning Up: Clean up remaining materials from spill with suitable  
 
absorbent. Local or national regulations may apply to releases and disposal of  
 
this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of  
 
releases. You will need to determine which regulations are applicable. Sections
13
and 15 of this SDS provide information regarding certain local or national      
 
requirements.

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                 
 


7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: Do not breathe vapors or spray mist. Do not  
 
swallow. Do not get in eyes. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin.
Handle
in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Non-sparking
tools
should be used. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from heat and sources
of 
ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Take care to   
 
prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the environment.                  
 
Hygiene Measures: Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are
located 
close to the working place. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash         
 
contaminated clothing before re-use.                                            
 


7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
