SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
UNUSUAL FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARDS No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.
Fire will produce dense black smoke containing hazardous products of combustion (see section10). Decomposition products may be hazardous to health.
PROTECTIVE MEASURES IN FIRE Appropriate self-contained breathing apparatus may be required.
6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Exclude sources of ignition and ventilate the area. Floors may become slippery. Warn others of the dangers present and exclude non-essential personnel. Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8. Avoid breathing vapours.
Do not allow to enter drains or water courses. If the product enters drains or sewers the local water company should be contacted immediately; in the case of contamination or streams, rivers or lakes, the Environment Agency.
SPILL CLEAN UP METHODS
Contain and collect spillages with non-combustible absorbent materials, e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth and place in a clearly labelled suitable container for disposal in accordance with the waste regulations (see section 13). Clean preferably with a detergent; avoid the use of solvents.
7 HANDLING AND STORAGE
Avoid skin and eye contact. Avoid inhalation of vapour. For personal protection, see section 8. Keep the container tightly closed. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in areas of storage and use. Never use pressure to empty; the container is not a pressure vessel. Always keep in the same material as the supply container. Good housekeeping standards and regular safe removal of waste materials will minimise risks of spontaneous combustion and other fire hazards. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations may apply to the handling of containers of this product. Packs with a volume content of 5 litres or more may be marked with a maximum gross weight. To assist employers the following method of calculating the weight for any pack size is given. Take the pack size volume in litres and multiply this figure by the specific gravity value given in section 9. This will give the net weight of the coating in kilograms. Allowance will then have to be made for the immediate packaging to give an approximate gross weight.
USAGE DESCRIPTION Use product only in accordance with methods listed in section 1.
Observe the label precautions. Store between 5°C and 30°C in a dry, well ventilated place. Prevent unauthorised access. Containers which are opened should be properly resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Store separately from oxidising agents and strongly alkaline and strongly acidic materials.
