: > 600
F (Setaflash) LEL/UEL: NA (% by volume in air )
Use carbon dioxide or dry chem
icals for small fir es, aqueous foam or water for large fires involving this m aterial.
Fire Fighting Instructions:
Remove all ignition sources. Closed cont
ainers m ay ruptur e due to build-up of pressu re when exposed to extrem e heat. Fight fire from a
safe distance. As in any fire, wear self-contained br
eathing apparatus (pressure demand, OSHA/ NIOSH approved or equivalent) an d full protective gear.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Remove all sources of ignition (spar
ks, open flames, etc.). W ear self-contained breathing a pparatus and appropr iate personal protective equipm ent.
Ventilate area and contain spill with sand or
other absorbent m aterial. Collect sp ill by scooping up liquids and absorbent m at erial and place in a sealed me tal container
for proper disposal. Do not flush to sewer. Prevent m
aterial from entering storm sewers, ditches that lead to waterways and g round.
Absorb spill with abso
rbent material, then place in a sealed metal container for proper disposal.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
cause container to rupture. Use explosion proof electrical equipm ent. Containers must be kept closed and vent ilation provided to prevent vapor
concentration build-up. Store in
a cool dry place. Do not breat he vapor or get liquid in eyes, or on skin and clothing. Keep away from heat or sources of ignition.
Check all containers for leaks. Wear protective clothing as
in section above. Avoid prolonge d breathing of vapors or contact with skin. Ensure that all equipm ent is
