Indication of Any Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment Needed Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Keep victim under observation. Symptoms may be delayed. SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES 5.1. Extinguishing Media Suitable Extinguishing Media: Alcohol resistant foam. Water fog. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, sand or earth may be used for small fires only. Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire. 5.2. Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture Fire Hazard: Extremely flammable aerosol. Contents under pressure. Pressurized container may rupture when exposed to heat or flame. Explosion Hazard: Contents under pressure. Pressurized container may rupture when exposed to heat or flame. This product is a poor conductor of electricity and can become electrostatically charged. If sufficient charge is accumulated, ignition of flammable mixtures can occur. Static electricity accumulation may be significantly increased by the presence of small quantities of water or other contaminants. Material will float and may ignite on surface of water. During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed. Reactivity: 5.3. Advice for Firefighters Precautionary Measures Fire: Firefighting Instructions: In case of fire: Stop leak if safe to do so. Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk. Containers should be cooled with water to prevent vapor pressure build up. Protection During Firefighting: Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with face shield, gloves, rubber boots, and in enclosed spaces, SCBA. SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES 6.1. Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures General Measures: Keep unnecessary personnel away. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Keep out of low areas. Remove all possible sources of ignition in the surrounding area. Many vapors are heavier than air and will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Do not breathe mist or vapor. Emergency personnel need self-contained breathing equipment. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained. For personal protection, see section 8 of the SDS. 6.1.1. For Non-emergency Personnel Protective Equipment: Emergency Procedures: 6.1.2. For Emergency Responders Protective Equipment: Emergency Procedures: 6.2. Environmental Precautions Avoid release to the environment. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Inform appropriate managerial or supervisory personnel of all environmental releases. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. 6.3. Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up For Containment: Methods for Cleaning Up: Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). Keep combustibles (wood, paper, oil, etc.) away from spilled material. Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Prevent product from entering drains. Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination. For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS. 6.4. Reference to Other Sections See heading 8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection. SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE 7.1. Precautions for Safe Handling Additional Hazards When Processed: Obtain special instructions before use. Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Minimize fire risks from flammable and combustible materials (including combustible dust and static accumulating liquids) or dangerous reactions with incompatible materials. Pressurized container: Do not pierce or burn, even after use. Do not use if spray button is missing or defective. Do not spray on a naked flame or any other incandescent material. Do not smoke while using or until sprayed surface is thoroughly dry. Do not cut, weld, solder, drill, grind, or expose containers to heat, flame, sparks, or other sources of ignition. Use caution around energized equipment. The metal container will conduct electricity if it contacts a live source. This may result in injury to the user from electrical shock and/or flash fire. Do not breathe mist or vapor. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged exposure. Pregnant or breastfeeding women must not handle this product. Should be handled in closed systems, if possible. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Avoid release to the environment. For product usage instructions, please see the product label. Hygiene Measures: When using do not smoke. Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants. 7.2. Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities Technical Measures: Storage Conditions: Pressurized container. Protect from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50Â°C/122 Â°F. Do not puncture, incinerate or crush. Do not handle or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. This material can accumulate static charge which may cause spark and become an ignition source. Avoid spark promoters. These alone may be insufficient to remove static electricity. Store in a well-ventilated place. Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the SDS). 7.3. Specific End Use(s) SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION 8.1.
