5.3          ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS

Wear Self Contained Breathing Apparatus and full protective equipment for fire response. Move containers from fire area if it can be done without risk to personnel. Otherwise, use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Contaminated equipment should be rinsed thoroughly with water before returning to service.

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

6.1          PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT, AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

  • RESPONSE TO INCIDENTAL RELEASES: Personnel who have received basic chemical safety training can generally handle small-scale releases (e.g., under 1 gallon). For small releases, the minimum Personal Protective Equipment should be rubber gloves and rubber apron, splash goggles or safety glasses. Use caution during clean-up; contaminated floors and items may be slippery.
  • RESPONSE TO NON-INCIDENTAL RELEASES:For large-scale releases of this product, minimum

Personal Protective Equipment should be Level C: triple-gloves, chemical resistant apron, boots, and splash goggles and air purifying respirator equipped with a HEPA filter. Level B protection should be used when oxygen levels are below 19.5% or are unknown.

  • RESPONSE PROCEDURES FOR ANY RELEASE: Absorb spilled liquid with polypads or other suitable absorbent materials. Rinse area with soap/water solution followed by a water rinse.

6.2          ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS

  • Avoid response actions that can cause a release of a significant amount of the substance (1 liter or more) into the environment.

6.3          METHODS AND MATERIALS FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP

  • SPILL RESPONSE EQUIPMENT: Polypad or other absorbent material.

6.4          REFERENCES TO OTHER SECTIONS

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE

7.1          PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING

  • HYGIENE PRACTICES: Keep out of reach of children. Follow good chemical hygiene practices. Do not smoke, drink, eat, or apply cosmetics in the chemical use area. Avoid inhalation of vapors, mists and sprays. Use in well-ventilated area. Avoid contact with skin or eyes. Remove contaminated clothing promptly. Clean up spilled product immediately.
  • HANDLING RECOMMENDATIONS: Employees must be appropriately trained to use this product safely as needed. When diluting this solution, slowly add the product to the water, to prevent splattering. Keep containers closed when not in use.

7.2          CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATIBILITIES

  • STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS: Ensure all containers are correctly labeled. Store containers away from direct sunlight, sources of intense heat, or where freezing is possible. Store this product away from incompatible chemicals (See Section 10, Stability and Reactivity). Empty containers may contain residual liquid; therefore, empty containers should be handled with care. Material should be stored in secondary containers, or in a diked area, as appropriate. Storage and use areas should be covered with impervious materials. Inspect all incoming containers before storage, to ensure containers are properly labeled and not damaged.

7.3          SPECIFIC END USES

  • RECOMMENDATIONS: Place product away from children and animals.
