Section 5 - Fire-Fighting Measures
Flash Point: Non-Flammable
Flash Point Method: Not applicable
Burning Rate: Not applicable
Auto-ignition Temperature: Does not burn.
Flammability Classification: Non Flammable
Extinguishing Media: Water fog, Alcohol foam, Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical
Unusual Fire or Explosion Hazards: None known other than material can splatter above 100oC/212oF.
Hazardous Combustion Products: Unknown but carbon monoxide may be released on burning.
Fire-Fighting Instructions: Do not release runoff from fire control methods to sewers or waterways.
Fire-Fighting Equipment: Because fire may produce toxic thermal decomposition products, wear a self-contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA) with a full face piece operated in pressure-demand or positive-pressure mode.
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
Spill/Leak Procedures:
Small Spills: Absorb spill with paper towel or similar absorbent; or flush to sewer or ground with large amounts of water.
Large Spills:
Containment: For large spills, dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal. Do not release into sewers or waterways. Absorb
spill with vermiculite, oil dry or similar non-reactant absorbent.
Cleanup: Accumulate the absorbed materials and dispose of according to federal, state and local regulations.
Regulatory Requirements: Follow applicable OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.120)
Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Handling Precautions: Use the recommended safety controls and personal protective equipment as outlined. Fully review all data
before handling of the material itself. Avoid contact with skin or eyes. Avoid breathing dust or mist. Keep from contact with clothing
and other combustible materials. Observe good personal hygiene and housekeeping practices.
Storage Requirements: Do not store this material near any strong acids, bases, oxidizers, flammables or any other type of reactive
material. Do not expose the material to temperature extremes.
Regulatory Requirements: Store materials according to all local, state and federal guidelines that are established for non-regulated
chemical products.
Section 8 - Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Engineering Controls:
Ventilation: Provide general or local exhaust ventilation systems to maintain airborne concentrations below OSHA PELs (Sec. 2).
Local exhaust ventilation is preferred because it prevents contaminant dispersion into the work area by controlling it at its source.
Administrative Controls:
Respiratory Protection: Seek professional advice prior to respirator selection and use. Follow OSHA respirator regulations (29 CFR
1910.134) and, if necessary, wear a MSHA/NIOSH-approved respirator. Select respirator based on its suitability to provide adequate
worker protection for given working conditions, level of airborne contamination, and presence of sufficient oxygen. For emergency or
non-routine operations (cleaning spills, reactor vessel, or storage tanks), wear an SCBA. Warning! Air-purifying respirators do not
protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres. If respirators are used, OSHA requires a written respiratory protection program that
includes at least: medical certification, training, fit testing, periodic environmental monitoring, maintenance, inspection, cleaning, and
convenient, sanitary storage areas.
Protective Clothing/Equipment: Wear chemically protective gloves, boots, aprons, and gauntlets to prevent prolonged or repeated
skin contact. Wear protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles, per OSHA eye-and face-protection regulations (29 CFR
1910.133). Contact lenses are not eye protective devices. Appropriate eye protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with
contact lenses.
Safety Stations: Make emergency eyewash stations, safety/quick-drench showers, and washing facilities available in work area.
Contaminated Equipment: Separate contaminated work clothes from street clothes. Launder before reuse. Remove this material
from your shoes and clean personal protective equipment.
Comments: Never eat, drink, or smoke in work areas. Practice good personal hygiene after using this material, especially before
eating, drinking, smoking, using the toilet, or applying cosmetics.
