SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flash Point: Not applicable
Lower/Upper explosion limit: Not applicable
Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and
the surrounding environment. Avoid generating dust of ; fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations,
and in the presence of an ignition source is a potential dust explosion hazard. Provide appropriate
exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Risks of ignition followed by flame propagation or
secondary explosions can be caused by the accumulation of dust, e.g. on floors and ledges.
Advice for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary. Standard
procedure for chemical fires.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Containment: Avoid dust formation
Clean-up Procedures: Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust. Clean up promptly by sweeping
or vacuum. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.
Special Instructions: Contaminated surfaces will be extremely slippery. Avoid spillage on floor as the
product can become very slippery when wet. Sweep up to prevent slipping hazard. Dust deposits should
not be allowed to accumulate on surfaces, as these may form an explosive mixture if they are released
into the atmosphere in sufficient concentration. Avoid dispersal of dust in the air (i.e., clearing dust
surfaces with compressed air.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling: Smoking, eating and drinking PAC Polyanionic Cellulose
should be prohibited in the application area. Electrostatic charge
may accumulate and create a hazardous condition when handling this material. To minimize this hazard,
bonding and grounding may be necessary, but may not by themselves be sufficient. For more information about PAC Polyanionic cellulose MSDS
