Section 5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
  Suitable extinguishing        Dry chemical, foam, water in large amounts, carbon dioxide.    
  media:
  Precautions for firefighters: Fire-extinguishing work is done from the windward and the suitable fire-extinguishing
    method according to the surrounding situation is used. Uninvolved persons should
    evacuate to a safe place. In case of fire in the surroundings: Keep containers cool by
    spraying with water. Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so.
  Special protective        When extinguishing fire, be sure to wear personal protective equipment.    
  equipment for firefighters:

Section 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
    Use extra personal protective equipment (self-contained breathing apparatus). Keep
  Personal precautions,
  protective equipment and people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Ensure adequate ventilation. Entry to non-
  emergency procedures: involved personnel should be controlled around the leakage area by roping off, etc.
  Environmental precautions: Prevent product from entering drains.
  Methods and materials for Absorb spilled material in dry sand or inert absorbent before recovering it into an
  containment and cleaning airtight container. In case of large amount of spillage, contain a spill by bunding.
  up: Adhered or collected material should be promptly disposed of, in accordance with
    appropriate laws and regulations.
  Prevention of secondary Remove all sources of ignition. Fire-extinguishing devices should be prepared in
  hazards:        case of a fire. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment.    

Section 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
  Precautions for safe handling
  Technical measures:        Handling is performed in a well ventilated place. Wear suitable protective equipment.    
    Prevent generation of vapour or mist. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flame/hot
    surfaces. -No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic
    charge. Use explosion-proof equipment. Wash hands and face thoroughly after
    handling.
    Use a closed system if possible. Use a ventilation, local exhaust if vapour or aerosol
    will be generated.
  Advice on safe handling:        Avoid all contact!    
    Confirm in advance if peroxides exist when operations involving heating such as
    distillation are carried out.
