monoxide, oxides of sulphur, and unidentified organic and inorganic compounds

Special protective equipment

Proper protective equipment including breathing apparatus must be worn when approaching a fire in a
confined space.

7. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES


Personal precautions

Avoid contact with skin. Wear impermeable gloves and boots. Nitrile rubber gloves.

Environmental precaution
