Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing media: Water, carbon dioxide,  dry chemical.Unusual fire and explosion hazard: Dust may form explosive mixture in air. Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.Special Protective Equipment for Fire fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and prote ctive clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.

Accidental release measures

Methods for cleanup: Vacuum material with appropriate dust collection filter in place. Be aware of potential for dust explosion when using electrical equipment. If vacuum is not available, lightly  mist material and remove by sweeping or wet wiping. Wear  protective equipment, including eye protection, to avoid exposure.
