Burning Rate: Non-combustible. Self ignition temperature: 397°C Shocks sensitivity: None Static discharge sensitivity: The static discharge sensitivity is improbable. Fire-Fighting Instructions: Any appropriate way to extinguish local flames. Fire Fighting Equipment: Because fire may produce toxic thermal decomposition products, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full-face piece. SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Spill/Leak Procedures: Wipe up with absorbent towels or mop SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling Precautions: Avoid ingestion, skin contact, eye contact, and inhalation. Fire and explosion protection: No particular measure. Product is not combustible nor explosive. Storage Requirements: Keep in tightly closed containers stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Storage incompatibility: General: Segregate from incompatible substances. Temperature tolerance: Protect from temperatures over 24°C. Product properties may change if stored above indicated temperature for extended periods of time. SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION Engineering Controls: Provide general or local exhaust ventilation systems to maintain airborne concentrations as low as possible. Respiratory Protection: If this product is used as directed, respiratory protection is not required. Seek professional advice prior to respirator selection and use. Protective Clothing: Wear, when the possibility of skin or clothing contamination may exist. Wear neoprene or nitrile gloves when directly handling the product. Eye Protection: Contact lenses pose a special hazard. Soft lenses may absorb irritants, and all contact lenses concentrate irritants. Particles may adhere to contact lenses and cause corneal damage. Other protection: Wash thoroughly with water and soap after handling. SECTION 9.
