Once meets fire or high fever to be inflammable. Fire mayproduce irritating or poisonous gases. Contact with strong oxidizers such asanhydride chromate, chlorate or potassium permanganate will bring intensivereaction lead to explosion or burning. Dust blend into air may form explosionmixture, and may explosive within flammable limits.
Using Carbon dioxide, water spray and sand for fireextinguish. Foam or direct water on molten naphthalene may cause extensivefire.
Isolate the contaminated area, Remove all sources offlame. Strongly recommend that an air-supplied respirator should be worn andput on ordinary dungaree. Don’t directly contact with leakage.
A small amount of leakage: Clean up leakage with non-sparking tool and equipment in a manner thatdoes not disperse the dust into air. Reduce airborne dust and preventscattering by moistening with water. Pick up spill for recovery or disposal andplace in a closed container.
A large number of leakages: Covered the leakage with canvas or plastic sheeting and reduceddispersion. Collected or recovered with non sparking tool and equipment, orTransported to the dump and carried out harmless treatment.
