Universal Indicator -Firefighting Measures
Extinguishing Media: Suitable extinguishing media: Foam, Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Dry powder. Unsuitable extinguishing media: For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.
Hazards Arising: Combustible. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Forms explosive mixtures with air at elevated temperatures. Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.
Advice for Firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Info for Firefighting: Remove container from danger zone and cool with water. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental Release Measures
Personal Precautions: Advice for non-emergency personnel: Do not breathe vapours, aerosols. Avoid substance contact. Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert. Advice for emergency responders: Protective equipment.
Environmental Precautions: Do not let product enter drains. Risk of explosion. Method for Containment: Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills. Observe possible material restrictions. Take up with liquid-absorbent material (e.g. Chemizorb® ). Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area.

Handling and Storage
Personal Precautions: Advice on safe handling: Observe label precautions. Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharge.

Hygiene measures: Change contaminated clothing. Wash hands after working with substance.
Enviromental Precautions: Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Recommended storage temperature see product label.

The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374,
for example KCL 898 Butoject® (full contact), KCL 730 Camatril® -Velours (splash contact).
The breakthrough times stated above were determined by KCL in laboratory tests acc. to EN374 with samples of the recommended glove types. This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet<(>,<)> supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124.
Body Protection: Flame retardant antistatic protective clothing. Respiratory Protection: Required when vapours/aerosols are generated. Recommended Filter type: Filter A (acc. to DIN 3181) for
vapours of organic compounds. The entrepreneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer. These measures have to be properly documented.
