Danger

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Water. DO NOT smother fire with blanket. DO NOT use powder or C02 extinguisher
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Use large amounts of water. Containers close to fire should be removed immediately or cooled with water
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
OXIDIZING. If heated, volume and pressure increases stongly, resulting in explosion of container
Hazardous Combustion Products
Carbon Dioxide (C02). Carbon Monoxide (C0), Chlorine and hydrogen gas
Protective Measure in Fire
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Wear personal protective equipment
Environment
Keep away from drains, water courses, and soil
Spill Clean Up
Damp with sand or similar material and collect in plastic or metal container for disposal. DO NOT use sawdust, peat, bark or other combustible materials. DO NOT use wooden or cardboard containers. Use sealed containers for reclamation or disposal in licensed special waste. Avoid contact with water. Flush area with flooding amounts of water.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and areosols.
Usage Descriptions
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smokint
Storage Precautions
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated placee Hygroscopic
Handling Precautions
Use only inert lubricants and packing for pumps, valves and other equipment. Change lubricants at regular intervals. Avoid handling material which can lead to dust formation. Use with local exhaust ventilation to minimize dust levels. Keep oxidizing materials away from flammable and combustible materials. Keep in cool, dry ventilated storage and closed containers. Electrical equipment and supply and distribution points must be kept free of dust to avoid fire and explosion hazard.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
Dust extraction should be used whenever this chemical is handled.
