SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                                 

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Alcohol resistant foam. Dry powder. Carbon dioxide. 
Sand.                                                                             
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Do not use a heavy water stream.                  


5.2.  Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: Highly flammable liquid and vapour.                                  
Explosion Hazard: May form flammable/explosive vapour-air mixture.                
Reactivity: Thermal decomposition generates : Corrosive vapours. Reacts violently 
with acids. An exothermic reaction may occur.                                     


5.3.  Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures Fire:                                                      
Firefighting Instructions: Use water spray or fog for cooling exposed containers. 
Exercise caution when fighting any chemical fire. Prevent fire-fighting water from
entering environment.                                                             
Protection During Firefighting: Do not enter fire area without proper protective  
equipment, including respiratory protection.                                      
Other information: Containers may swell and Burst during a fire due to internal   
pressure caused by heat. Vapours are heavier than air and may travel considerable 
distance to an ignition source and flash back to source of vapours. Alcohols burn 
with a pale blue flame which may be extremely hard to see under normal lighting   
conditions. Personnel may be able to feel the heat of the fire without seeing     
flames. Extreme caution must be exercised in fighting alcohol fires.

General Measures: Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so. Use special    
care to avoid static electric charges. No naked lights. No smoking. Stop leak if  
safe to do so. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without    
suitable training. Wear protective clothing. For further information refer to     
section 8 : Exposure-controls/personal protection.                                


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


6.1.2.      For Emergency Responders
Protective Equipment: Equip cleanup crew with proper protection.                  
Emergency Procedures: Ventilate area.                                             


6.2.  Environmental Precautions
Prevent entry to sewers and public waters. Notify authorities if liquid enters    
sewers or public waters.                                                          


6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment:                                                                  
Methods for Cleaning Up: Soak up spills with inert solids, such as clay or        
diatomaceous earth as soon as possible. Collect spillage. Store away from other   
materials. Contain any spills with dikes or absorbents to prevent migration and   
entry into sewers or streams. Consult the appropriate authorities about waste     
disposal. Ensure all national/local regulations are observed.

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: Handle empty containers with care because      
residual vapours are flammable.                                                   
Obtain special instructions before use. Do not handle until all safety precautions
have been read and understood. Personal protective equipment should be selected   
based upon the conditions under which this product is handled or used. Use        
personal protective equipment as required. Provide good ventilation in process    
area to prevent formation of vapour. Do not breathe gas, fumes, vapour or spray.  
No naked lights. No smoking. Use only non-sparking tools. Never use pressure to   
empty container. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Take care to allow
internal pressure to escape from container before releasing closures. Remove      
closure carefully; internal pressure may be present. Keep closure up to prevent   
leakage. Wash hands and other exposed areas with mild soap and water before       
eating, drinking or smoking and when leaving work.                                
Hygiene Measures: Wash hands and other exposed areas with mild soap and water     
before eating, drinking or smoking and when leaving work. Wash contaminated       
clothing before reuse. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product.        


7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures: Use explosion-proof machinery, apparatus, ventilation         
facilities, tools etc. Ensure the ventilation system is regularly maintained and  
tested. Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the     
airborne concentrations of mists and/or vapors below the recommended exposure     
limits. Proper grounding procedures to avoid static electricity should be         
followed. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. A washing facility/water 
for eye and skin cleaning purposes should be present. Comply with applicable      
regulations.                                                                      
Storage Conditions: Keep only in the original container in a cool well ventilated 
place. Keep in fireproof place. Keep container tightly closed. Protect containers 
against physical damage. Detached outside storage is preferable. Inside storage   
should be in an NFPA approved flammable liquids storage room or cabinet. Store in 
corrosion-proof area at temperatures below 77 degrees F (25oC). Store away from   
direct sunlight or other heat sources.                                            
Incompatible materials: Avoid mixing with acids, most common metals, strong       
oxidizing agents, brass, zinc, chlorine, aluminum, copper, bronze, mercury,       
dimethyl sulfate and acetyl chloride.
