Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent, and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. This material in sufficient quantity and reduced particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion.
Special Hazards Arising: Carbon & nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride gas, zinc/zinc oxides.
