5. Fire Fighting Measures
5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 5.5 Flash point: ≤ 27°C ( 17°F); Highly Flammable. Auto ignition Temperature: 580°C (1076°F). Flammability Limits: Upper limit 13.3% (V/V); Lower limit 3.6% (V/V). Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Explosion possible with gas vapor and air mixture (See section 10). Extinguishing Methods Common: • Powder. • Foam, AFFF. • CO2. Inappropriate extinguishing means: Water. 5.6 Fire Fighting Procedures Specific hazards: • Highly flammable (see section 9). • Formation of dangerous gas/vapors in case of decomposition (see section 10). • Gas/vapors are heavier than air and so may travel along the ground; remote ignition possible. • Gas/vapors explosion possible in presence of air. Protective measures in case of intervention: • Evacuate all non essential personnel. • Wear self contained breathing apparatus when in close proximity or in confined spaces. • After intervention, take a shower, remove clothing carefully, clean and check the equipment. • Intervention only by capable personnel who are trained and aware of the hazards of the product. • When intervention in close proximity wear acid resistant over suit. Other precautions: • If safe to do so, remove the exposed containers, or cool with large quantities of water. • Approach from upwind. • As for any fire, ventilate and clean the rooms before reentry. • After the fire, proceed rapidly to clean the surfaces exposed to the fumes in order to limit the damage to the equipment. • Avoid propagating the fire, when directing the extinguishing means in a jet on the surface of the burning liquid.
