Hazard category

8.2 category corrosive liquid and category 3 dangerous goods

Fire-fighting measures

Fire fighting method: Fire fighters must wear gas masks and put out the fire in the upwind direction from a safe distance. Spray the escaping liquid with water to dilute it into a non-flammable mixture, and use water spray to protect firefighters.
