Suitable extinguishing media: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for surrounding fires. Do not use water on fires when you suspect that molten metals are present
Extinguishing media not to be used: Do not use water on fires when suspected molten metals are present
Special exposure hazards: Nonflammable/combustible material. Molten metals can produce fumes, vapors and dust that can be toxic and/or respiratory irritants
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus (preferably operated in a positive pressure mode) and protective clothing/goggles to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Do not stay in dangerous zones without self-contained breathing apparatus
