Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container.
Strong oxidizing agents, fluorine, bromine, chlorine.
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen bromide, carbonyl bromide.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Substance is noncombustible. Extinguishing media: Use extinguishing media most appropriate for the surrounding fire. Do NOT use halogenated agents.
This material is probably combustible.
