V – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA
Flash Point: (Method Used)
Flammable Limits:
LEL:
UEL:
Extinguishing Media: In case of fire or smoke, call the fire department. Do not attempt to
extinguish the fire without a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Do not
let the fire burn. Flood with copious amounts of water. Do not use ABC or other
day chemical extinguishers since there is the potential for a violent reaction.
Special Fire-fighting Procedures: Fires fueled by other materials may release hydrogen
bromide, bromine, hydrogen chloride or chlorine. Wear self-contained breathing
apparatus. Ammonium phosphate (ABC) fire extinguishers should not be used.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: A dust explosion severity determination was
performed using the Hartmann Dust Explosibility Bomb designed at the US
Bureau of Mines. The product was determined not to be ignitable.
General Hazard: In large fires fueled by other materials, this product may smolder for
prolonged periods emitting a dense black smoke.
Any spilled material should be considered contaminated. Neutralize to a nonoxidizing material for safe disposal. Material, which appears undamaged except
2
for being damp on the outside, should be opened and inspected immediately. If
the material is damp, it should be neutralized to a non-oxidizing material for safe
disposal.
VI – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Spilled Or Released: Using appropriate protective
clothing and safety equipment, contain spilled material. Do not add water to
spilled material. Using clean dedicated equipment, sweep and scoop all spilled
material, contaminated soil, and other contaminated material and place into clean
dry container for disposal. Do not use floor-sweeping compounds to clean up
spills. Do not close containers containing wet or damp material. They should be
left open to disperse any hazardous gases that may form. Do not transport wet or
damp material. Keep product out of sewers, watersheds and water systems. Do
not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage, disposal or cleaning of
equipment. Dispose of according to local, state and federal regulations.
VII – HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storage:
Handling: Strong oxidizing agent: Do not mix with other chemicals. Mix only with
water. Never add water to product. Always add product to large quantities of
water. Use clean dry utensils. Do not add the product to any dispensing device
containing remnants of any other product. Such use may cause a violent reaction
leading to fire or explosion. Contamination with moisture, organic matter or other
chemicals will start a chemical reaction and generate heat, hazardous gas, possible
fire and explosion. In case of contamination or decomposition, do not reseal
container. If possible, isolate container in open air or well-ventilated area. Flood
area with large volume of water.
Storage: Keep this product in original closed container when not in use. Store in a cool,
dry, well-ventilated area away from heat or open flame. Do not contaminate
water, food or feed by storage or disposal or cleaning of equipment. Do not store
above 125° F (52°C)
Other Precautions: Do not reuse empty container. Rinse thoroughly before discarding in
trash.
VIII – EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Respiratory Protection: A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA 1910.1314
and ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace condition
warrant a respirator's use.
Ventilation:
Local Exhaust: General room ventilation plus local exhaust should be used to
minimize exposure to dust/vapors.
Mechanical Exhaust:
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment:
