SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                               
 

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or
foam.
Do not use water jet or flooding amounts of water. Burning product will float on
 
the surface and spread fire.                                                    
 
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or  
 
foam. Do not use water jet or flooding amounts of water. Burning product will   
 
float on the surface and spread fire.                                           
 


5.2.  Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: Combustible liquid and vapor. Vapors are heavier than air and may  
 
travel along surfaces to remote ignition sources and flash back. Combustion will
 
produce oxides of carbon and hydrocarbons.                                      
 
Explosion Hazard:                                                               
 
Reactivity:                                                                     
 


5.3.  Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures Fire:                                                    
 
Firefighting Instructions:                                                      
 
Protection During Firefighting: Firefighters should always wear positive
pressure 
self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Cool
fire-exposed
containers with water.
