Suitable Extinguishing Media: Dry Powder, CO2, Foam, Sand, Earth
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: NEVER USE WATER JET
Special Exposure Hazards in Fires: None known
Required Special Protective
Equipment for Fire Fighters: Wear suitable protective clothing
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES:
Precautions: Stem flow of spilled material. Extinguish all naked flames and cigarettes. Material should be mopped up immediately with an inert absorbent material, such as sand, sawdust, earth, etc. Prevent spills from entering sewers and drains. Dispose of at an appropriate licensed waste disposal site in accordance with current legislation and regulations.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE:

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY:
Stable under normal conditions. Avoid excessive heat.
Hazardous decomposition products: Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide, oxides of nitrogen and sulphur.
When bitumen is mixed with diluent, it is believed that the preparation becomes more bio-available. The carcinogenicity of the preparation is strongly dependant on the nature of the solvent used since the polycylic aromatic content of the bitumen is low.
The preparation has not been tested but, the slow rates of bio degradation of bitumen can cause interference with the normal functioning of ecological cycles. Bitumens should therefore be contained and spills avoided.
Material and container must be disposed of as “hazardous waste” in accordance with local and national regulations.
