5. Fire Fighting Measures

 Flash Point: 150 degrees F O(65.5 degrees C)

Flammability Limits: NA

Autoignition temp: NA

Fire Extinguishing Media: Foam, water fog, carbon dioxide, dry chemical. Do not use a direct stream of water. Product will float and can be reignited on surface of water.

Special Fire-Fighting Information: When entering confined space, wear positive pressure NIOSH-approved SCNA, full bunker gear (helmet with face shield, bunker coats, gloves and rubber boots) Use water spray to cool containers, to prevent weakening of container structure or buildup of vapor pressure which could result in container rupture.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along the ground.

6. Accidental Release Measures

Caution - combustible. Eliminate potential sources of ignition. Wear Appropriate respirator and other protective clothing. Contain spill. Remove with vacuum trucks or pump to storage/slavage vessels. Soak up residue with an absorbent such as clay, sand, or other suitable material; place in non-leaking containers and seal tightly for proper disposal. Flush area with water to remove trace residue dispose of flush solution as above.

For Small Spills: Take up with an absorbent material and place in a non-leaking container for proper disposal.
