Section 5 - Fire
Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear. Material will not burn. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases
may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
Extinguishing Media: Substance is noncombustible; use agent
most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire. Use water spray, dry chemical,
carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
