Flash Point,°C
139
Fire fighting
Extinguish using Carbon dioxide. Dry chemical powder. Unsuitable: Do not use water. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
Fire potential
Water hydrolyzes material liberating acidic gas which in contact with metal surfaces can generate flammable and/or explosive hydrogen gas.
Hazards
Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions. Specific Method(s) of Fire Fighting: Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers.
Combustion products
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Health.
Exposure effects
