fighting:Material as sold is combustible; burns vigorously with intense heat.

Specific hazards during fire
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Further information:Water mist may be used to cool closed containers. Remain upwind.
Avoid breathing smoke.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions

Appropriate protective equipment must be worn when handling a spill of this material. See SECTION 8, Exposure Controls/Personal Protection, for recommendations.
If exposed to material during clean-up operations, see SECTION 4, First Aid Measures, for actions to follow.

Environmental precautions

CAUTION: Keep spills and cleaning runoff out of municipal sewers and open bodies of water.

Methods for cleaning up

Floor may be slippery; use care to avoid falling.

Value

Eye protection:Use safety glasses with side shields (ANSI Z87.1or approved equivalent). Eye protection worn must be compatible with respiratory protection system employed.
Hand protection:Cotton or canvas gloves.

Respiratory protection:A respiratory protection program meeting OSHA 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements or equivalent must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator’s use. None required under normal operating conditions. When dusty conditions are encountered, wear a properly fitted NIOSH approved (or equivalent) half-mask, air-purifying respirator. Air-purifying respirators should be equipped with NIOSH approved (or equivalent) organic vapor cartridges and N95 filters. If oil mist is present, use R95 or P95 filters.

Protective measures:Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility.

Engineering measures:Use local exhaust ventilation with a minimum capture velocity of 150 ft/min. (0.75 m/sec.) at the point of dust or mist evolution. Refer to the current edition of “Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice” published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists for information on the design, installation, use, and maintenance of exhaust systems.
