Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures |
General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Combustible liquid and vapor. Vapors are heavierthan air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Vapors can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas. This liquid floats on water and may travel to a source of ignition and spread fire.
Extinguishing Media: Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Flash Point: 81 deg C ( 177.80 deg F)
Autoignition Temperature: 273 deg C ( 523.40 degF)
Explosion Limits, Lower:Not available.
Upper: Not available.
NFPA Rating: (estimated) Health: 2; Flammability: 2; Instability: 0
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures |
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Cleanup spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Remove all sources of ignition. Provide ventilation.
