Fire fighting further advice: Not combustible, however following evaporation of aqueous component residual

material can burn if ignited.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

SMALL SPILLS

Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contamination. Avoid inhalation of vapours or dust. Wipe up

with absorbent (clean rag or paper towels). Collect and seal in properly labelled containers or drums for disposal.

LARGE SPILLS

Clear area of all unprotected personnel. Slippery when spilt. Avoid accidents, clean up immediately. Wear

protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contamination and the inhalation of vapours. Work up wind or

increase ventilation. Contain - prevent run off into drains and waterways. Use absorbent (soil, sand or other inert

material). Collect and seal in properly labelled containers or drums for disposal. If contamination of crops,

sewers or waterways has occurred advise local emergency services.
