Use appropriate media for surrounding fire. Unsuitable Extinguishing Media ? Water Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards ? Highly flammable hydrogen gas is generated during charging and operation of batteries. If ignited by burning cigarette, naked flame or spark, may cause battery explosion with dispersion of casing fragments and corrosive liquid electrolyte. Carefully follow manufacturer?s instructions for installation and service. Keep away all sources of gas ignition and do not allow metallic articles to simultaneously contact the negative and positive terminals of a battery. Hazardous Combustion Products ? No data available Advice for firefighters ? Use positive pressure, self-contained breathing apparatus. Beware of acid splatter during water application and wear acid-resistant clothing, gloves, face and eye protection. If batteries are on charge, shut off power to the charging equipment, but note that strings of series connected batteries may still pose risk of electric shock even when charging equipment is shut down. Fire- fighting water runoff and dilution water may be toxic and corrosive and may cause adverse environmental impacts. Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures Personal Precautions ? Wear acid-resistant clothing, boots, gloves, and face shield. Emergency Procedures ? Keep unauthorized personnel away. Environmental precautions ? Do not allow discharge of un-neutralized acid to sewer. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up Containment/Clean-up Measures ? Stop flow of material, contain / absorb small spills with dry sand, earth, and vermiculite. Do not use combustible materials. If possible, carefully neutralize spilled acid with soda ash, sodium bicarbonate, lime, etc. Acid must be managed in accordance with approved local, state, and federal requirements. Consult state environmental agency and / or federal EPA. Lead acid batteries are recyclable. Section 7 - Handling and Storage Precautions for safe handling Handling ? There is a possible risk of electric shock from charging equipment and from strings of series connected batteries, whether or not being charged. Shut-off power to chargers whenever not in use and before detachment of any circuit connections. Batteries being charged may generate and release flammable hydrogen gas. Charging space should be ventilated. Keep battery vent caps in position. Prohibit smoking and avoid creation of flames and sparks nearby. Wear face and eye protection when near batteries being charged. Unless involved in recycling operations, do not breach the casing or empty the contents of the battery. Handle carefully and avoid tipping, which may allow electrolyte leakage. There may be increasing risk of electric shock from strings of connected batteries. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. If battery case is broken, avoid contact with internal components. Keep vent caps on and cover terminals to prevent short circuits. Place cardboard between layers of stacked automotive batteries to avoid damage and short circuits. Keep away from combustible materials, organic chemicals, reducing substances, metals, strong oxidizers and water. Use banding or stretch wrap to secure items for shipping. Follow Manufacturers Recommendations regarding maximum recommended currents and operating temperature range. Do not overcharge beyond the recommended upper charging voltage limit. Applying pressure or deforming the battery may lead to disassembly followed by eye, skin and throat irritation. When using, do not eat, drink, or smoke. Wash hands after handling. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities Storage ? Store frost-free under roof; prevent short circuits. Do not store in sealed, unventilated areas. Seek agreement with local water authorities in case of larger quantities. Avoid overheating and charging. Do not use organic solvents or anything other than manufacturers recommended cleaners on the batteries. If batteries have to be stored in storage rooms, it is imperative that the instructions for use are observed.
