5 Fire fighting measures
Suitable extinguishing agents
Alcohol resistant foam, CO2, powders, water spray, if applied under high pressure.
For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents Waterjet.
Special hazards caused by the material!, its products of combustion or flue gases:
Exposure to hazardous decomposition products may cause a health hazard.
Appropriate breathing apparatus may be required.
Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.
Fire will produce dense black smoke.
Additional information Collect run-off from fire fighting.
6 Accidental release measures
Person-related safety precautions:
Ventilate the area.
Refer to protective measures listed in section 7 and 8.
Measures for environmental! protection:
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or sewage’s inform respective authorities.
Do not allow to enter drains.
Measures for cleaning/collecting:
Clean preferably with a detergent.
Avoid use of solvents.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth,
diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local regulations.
7 Handling and storage
Information for safe handling:
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in application area.
For personal protection see section 8
Comply with health and safety at work laws.
Avoid skin and eye contact.
Avoid breathing vapours.
Requirements to be met by storerooms and containers:
Never use pressure to empty: container is not a pressure vessel.
Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
Keep container tightly closed.
Further information about storage conditions:
Store in a dry, well ventilated place.
Always keep in containers of the same material as the original one.
Keep away from heat and direct sunlight.
Store in accordance with the particular national regulations concerning water pollution.
8 Exposure controls and personal protection
Additional information about design of technical systems: Provide adequate ventilation.
Components with critical values that require monitoring at the workplace:
Numerical data -if specified -are taken from the valid nationalists.
Personal protective equipment
Protection of hands:
Barrier creams may help to protect the exposed areas of the skin, they should however not be applied
once exposure has occurred.
For prolonged or repeated contact use protective gloves.
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the

Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the
preparation/ the chemical mixture.
Selection of the glove material) on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the
Material of gloves
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks
of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a preparation of several
substances, the resistance of the glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore
to be checked prior to the application.
Penetration time of glove material
The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has
to be observed.
Eye protection: not necessary
Body protection:
The skin should be washed after contact.
Working clothes must not consist of textiles, which show a dangerous melting behaviour in case of

nitrogen (NOx).
11 Toxicological information
The Preparation is classified according to the conventional method (calculation method of the EC-
directive 881379/EEC).
Repeated or prolonged contact with the preparation may cause removal of natural fat from the skin
resulting in desiccation of the skin.
The liquid splashed in the eyes may cause strong irritation and reversible damage.
12 Ecological information:
The product should not be allowed to enter drains or water courses or the soil.
