Additional advice : Nitrogen trichloride can be generated slowly by the reaction of small quantities of water with a high
concentration of this product. Nitrogen trichloride can present an explosion hazard. Immediately after a fire has been
extinguished, check for wet or damp material. Any spilled material from burned or broken containers should be assumed
contaminated. Neutralize to a non-oxidizing material for safe disposal. Do not attempt to re-close broken containers, even
for movement to the disposal area. They should be left open to disperse any nitrogen trichloride that may form. Material
which appears undamaged except for being damp on the outside, should be opened and inspected immediately. If the
plastic liner (where applicable) of the container is damaged or the material is damp, the material should be chemically
treated if allowable, to a non-oxidizing material for safe disposal. Bulging containers require extreme care. Contact the fire
department.
SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Environmental precautions
:
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods for containment /
Methods for cleaning up
:
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
containers for disposal.
Do not close containers containing wet or damp material. They should be left
open to disperse any hazardous gases that may form.
Additional advice
:
Do not use floor sweeping compounds to clean up spills.
Do not transport wet or damp material.
Treat recovered material as described in the section "Disposal considerations".
Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal or cleaning of
equipment.
