**** SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES ****

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:

CLASS "D" DRY CHEMICAL EXTINGUISHING AGENT OR OTHER SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING 
MATERIAL SUCH AS DRY SAND. DO NOT USE CLASS "A", "B" OR "C" EXTINGUISHERS
OR HALOGENATED AGENTS. DO NOT USE WATER. WATER AND BURNING FINELY DIVIDED
ALUMINUM REACT VIOLENTLY FORMING HYDROGEN GAS AND ALUMINUM OXIDE. ALUMINUM
PARTICLES WILL BURN AT A VERY HIGH TEMPERATURE AS A MASS OF MATERIAL OR BE
POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE IF LOOSENED AND DISPERSED IN AIR. *****AT NO TIME
ALLOW A DUST CLOUD TO BE FORMED***** THIS MATERIAL IS POTENTIALLY
EXPLOSIVE WHEN LOOSENED AND DISPERSED IN AIR. FOLLOW THE LISTED FIRE
FIGHTING PROCEDURES CAREFULLY AND REFER TO THE ALUMINUM ASSOCIATION TR-2
BULLETIN.

Special Fire Fighting Procedures:

GENTLY COVER THE BURNING POWDER AND FORM A RING AROUND IT WITH THE 
EXTINGUISHING AGENTS RECOMMENDED. DO NOT ACTUALLY MIX THE AGENT WITH THE
BURNING POWDER AND DO NOT DISTURB THE POWDER UNTIL IT COOLS TO AMBIENT
TEMPERATURE. AT NO TIME ALLOW DUST CLOUDS TO BE FORMED.
