Section 5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
  Suitable extinguishing        Dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide.    
  media:
  Unsuitable extinguishing Water (It may scatter and spread fire.)
  media:
  Specific hazards arising Explosion risk in case of fire. Fight fire remotely due to the risk of explosion.
    Take care as it may decompose upon combustion or in high temperatures to
  from the chemical:
    generate poisonous fume.
  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
  Personal precautions,        Use extra personal protective equipment (self-contained breathing apparatus). Keep    
  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
    case of a fire. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment.

  Precautions for safe handling
  tert-Butyl Nitrite

Section 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
  Technical measures:        Handling is performed in a well ventilated place. Wear suitable protective equipment.    
    Be careful not to cause leakage, overflow, or dispersion. Steam should not be
    generated unnecessarily. 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. Avoid shock and friction. Wash hands and face before
    breaks and immediately after handling the product.
    Use a closed system if possible. Use a ventilation, local exhaust if vapour or aerosol
    will be generated.
  Advice on safe handling: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
    May develop pressure. Open carefully.
  Conditions for safe storage, including any
  incompatibilities
  Storage conditions:        Keep container tightly closed. Store in an explosion-poof refregerator.    
    Store under inert gas.
    Store locked up.
    Be sure not to give the container unexpected impacts, such as falling down or falling
    off.
    Store away from incompatible materials such as oxidizing agents.

  Packaging material:        Comply with laws.    

Section 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
  Engineering controls:        Install a closed system or local exhaust. Also install safety shower and eye bath.    
  Personal protective equipment
  Respiratory protection: Half or full facepiece respirator, self-contained breathing apparatus(SCBA), supplied
    air respirator, etc. Use respirators approved under appropriate government standards
    and follow local and national regulations.
  Hand protection:        Impervious gloves.
