Bahan-bahan berikut ini mungkin dapat termasuk golongan produk penguraian-

hayati:

karbon dioksida

karbon monoksida

oksida sulfur

oksida logam/oksida

Cairan yang dapat menyala (bila terjadi kontak singkat dengan sumber nyala).

Dalam kebakaran atau jika memanas, peningkatan tekanan akan terjadi dan wadah

bisa meledak pecah, dengan risiko ledakan susulan. Aliran ke selokan dapat

menimbulkan kebakaran atau bahaya ledakan. Bahan ini berbahaya bagi

kehidupan air. Air bekas memadamkan kebakaran yang tercemar dengan bahan ini

harus dibendung dan dicegah agar tidak mengalir masuk/dibuang ke saluran air,

parit, atau selokan.

Petugas pemadam kebakaran harus memakai perlengkapan pelindung yang

memadai dan alat bantu pernapasan (Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus - SCBA)

yang berpelindung-wajah penuh dan yang beroperasi dalam mode tekanan positif.
