Gefahrenhinweise (EU): H260
In contact with water releases flammable gases which may ignite spontaneously.
Keep away from any possible contact with water, because of violent reaction and possible flash fire. Handle under inert gas. Protect from moisture. Wear protective gloves and eye/face protection. In case of fire: Use for extinction: CO2, sand, extinguishing powder. Store in a dry place. Store in a closed container. Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local/regional/national/international regulations.
