Text Box: SECTION 5 – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 

 

Flash Point (Method used):             109 F (42.8 C) TCC

Flammable Limits:                 LEL:    0.9% 

                                                UEL:   10.5%

Autoignition Temperature:              > 932 F (>500 C)

NFPA Class:                                      II

General Hazards:     

PCBTF exhibits a flash point of 109° F (42.8° C), however, this product is a non-regulated material under the DOT Hazardous Material Regulations and the IMDG Code because it does not sustain combustion. Products of combustion include compounds of carbon, chlorine, fluorine, hydrogen and oxygen, including carbon monoxide. Toxic gases will form upon combustion.                               

Extinguishing Media:           Carbon dioxide, water, water fog, dry chemical, chemical foam.

Fire Fighting Procedure:     Self - contained respiratory equipment; cool containers to prevent pressure                                                            buildup and possible explosion when exposed to extreme heat. Caution -                                                                material will produce a flash before self extinguishing!

Unusual Fire /                       

Explosion Hazards:              Closed containers can explode due to buildup of pressure when exposed to                                                           extreme heat.

Hazardous Combustion

Products:                               Smoke, fumes or vapors, oxides of carbon, chlorine, fluorine.

 

Text Box: SECTION 6 – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 

STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: Contain liquids and prevent discharges to streams or sewers, control or stop the loss of volatile materials to the atmosphere. Large leaks may require environmental consideration and possible evacuation. Do not apply water to the leak. Spills or releases should be reported, if required, to the appropriate local, state, and federal agencies. If a significant spill occurs, evacuate area. If exposure conditions warrant, wear a NIOSH/MSHA-approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Shut off electrical service and protect from ignition. Contain spill or release with a dike to prevent flow into sewers or streams. Pump into container for disposal or reclamation. Soak up small spills with absorbent material.

Text Box: SECTION 7 – HANDLING AND STORAGE

 

 


PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORAGE: Keep container closed when not in use; protect containers from abuse; protect from extreme temperatures. Keep this and other chemicals out of reach of children.

Text Box: SECTION 12 – ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

 

No data are available on the adverse effects of this material on the environment. Neither COD nor BOD data are available. Based on the chemical composition of this product it is assumed that the mixture can be treated in an acclimatized biological waste treatment plant system in limited quantities. However, such treatment should be evaluated and approved for each specific biological system. None of the ingredients in this mixture are classified as a Marine Pollutant. Volatility, and relative environmental partitioning characteristics, makes it unlikely that PCBTF represents a significant threat to aquatic or terrestrial environments.
