5. Fire-fighting measures
Extinguishing media : Use an extinguishing agent suitable for surrounding fires.
Special exposure hazards : No specific hazard.
Hazardous thermal : These products are halogenated compounds, hydrogen chloride. Some metallic
decomposition products oxides.
Special protective : Fire fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained
equipment for fire-fighters breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure
Remark : The residue, ash or char left after a fire may have catalytic properties and may
promote the re-ignition of flammable materials and vapours.

6. Accidental release measures
Personal Precautions : Immediately contact emergency personnel. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Use
suitable protective equipment (Section 8).
Environmental precautions : Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains
and sewers.
Methods for cleaning up : If emergency personnel are unavailable vacuum or carefully scoop up spilled
materials and place in an appropriate container for disposal. Avoid creating dusty
conditions and prevent wind dispersal.

7. Handling and storage
Handling : Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep container closed.

8. Exposure controls/personal protection
Ingredient name Occupational exposure limits
Dipotassium tetrachloroplatinate EH40-OES (United Kingdom (UK)). Sensitiser skin, Sensitiser
inhalation Notes: As Pt
TWA: 0.002 mg/m3 8 hour(s). Form: Halogeno-Platinum
Exposure controls
Occupational exposure : Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to
controls keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations
generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne
contaminants below the exposure limit.
Respiratory protection : Use a properly fitted, particulate filter respirator complying with an approved standard
if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.Respirator selection must be based on
known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe working
limits of the selected respirator.
Hand protection : Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves or gauntlets complying with an approved
standard should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary.
Eye protection : Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists or
Skin protection : Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task
being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before
handling this product.

Dipotassium tetrachloroplatinate LD50 <200 mg/kg Oral Rat
LDLo 400 mg/kg Oral child
Persons with a history of allergic diseases, such as asthma or hay-fever, should not work with platinum salts. A history of
cardiac or pulmonary diseases may also preclude work with platinum salts - medical opinion should be sought. Any
workers experiencing untoward effects or symptoms should be removed from exposure and medically examined for
platinum sensitivity. Sensitisation is indicated by positive skin-prick test to low concentration solutions of platinum salts.
