Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Move out of dangerous area

Emergency mesure - Eyes: Immediately flush eye(s) with plenty of water

Emergency measure - Kin: whash off with soap and water

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person

If a person vomits when lying on his back, place him in the recovery position. Prevent vimiting of possible

Fire-fighting measures


Appropriate Extinguishing Media:  Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) to extinguish flames

Inappropriate Extinguishing Media:  Straight streams of water


Fire Fighting Instructions:  Evacuate area.  Prevent run-off from fire control or dilution from entering streams, sewers or drinking water supply.  

Fire-fighters should use standard protective equipment and in enclosed spaces, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).  

Use water spray to cool fire exposed surfaces and to protect personnel.  

Hazardous Combustion Products:   Smoke, Fume, Incomplete combustion products, Oxides of carbon

Accidental release measures


In the event of a spill or accidental release, notify relevant authorities in accordance with all applicable regulations.



Land Spill:  Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area).  Stop leak if you can do so without risk.  Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers.  If liquid is too viscous for pumping, shovel it up into a suitable container for recycle or disposal.  Recover by pumping or with suitable absorbent.

Water Spill:  Warn other shipping.   Remove from the surface by skimming or with suitable absorbents.   Seek advice of a specialist

Water spill and land spill recommendations are based on the most likely spill scenario for this material; however, geographic conditions, wind, temperature, (and in the case of a water spill) wave and current direction and speed may greatly influence the appropriate action to be taken.  For this reason, local experts should be consulted.  Note:  Local regulations may prescribe or limit action to be taken.


Large Spills:  Dyke far ahead of liquid spill for later recovery and disposal.  Reduce entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas.

Handling and storage


Avoid contact with skin.  Provide adequate ventilation if fumes or vapour are generated. Prevent small spills and leakage to avoid slip hazard.   DO NOT handle, store or open near an open flame, sources of heat or sources of ignition. Protect material from direct sunlight.  Material can accumulate static charges which may cause an electrical spark (ignition source).

Loading/Unloading Temperature:     [Ambient]

Transport Temperature:     [Ambient]

Transport Pressure:     [Ambient]


Do not store in open or unlabelled containers.  Keep container closed. Handle containers with care. Open slowly in order to control possible pressure release.  Store in a cool, well-ventilated area.

Storage Temperature:       [Ambient]

Storage Pressure:     [Ambient]

Suitable Containers/Packing:   Drums; Barges; Tank Cars

Suitable Materials and Coatings:   Carbon steel; Stainless steel; Polypropylene; Teflon; Aluminium; Nylon; Viton

Unsuitable Materials and Coatings:   Butyl rubber; Natural rubber; Vinyls  


The level of protection and types of controls necessary will vary depending upon potential exposure conditions. Control measures to consider:

Adequate ventilation should be provided so that exposure limits are not exceeded.


Personal protective equipment selections vary based on potential exposure conditions such as applications, handling practices, concentration and ventilation.  Information on the selection of protective equipment for use with this material, as provided below, is based upon intended, normal usage.  

Respiratory Protection:   If engineering controls do not maintain airborne contaminant concentrations at a level which is adequate to protect worker health, an approved respirator may be appropriate.  Respirator selection, use, and maintenance must be in accordance with regulatory requirements, if applicable.  Types of respirators to be considered for this material include:

Half-face filter respirator   Type P filter material., European Committee for Standardization (CEN) standards EN 136, 140 and 405 provide respirator masks and EN 149 and 143 provide filter recommendations.

For high airborne concentrations, use an approved supplied-air respirator, operated in positive pressure mode.  Supplied air respirators with an escape bottle may be appropriate when oxygen levels are inadequate, gas/vapour warning properties are poor, or if air purifying filter capacity/rating may be exceeded.

Hand Protection:   Any specific glove information provided is based on published literature and glove manufacturer data.  Glove suitability and breakthrough time will differ depending on the specific use conditions. Contact the glove manufacturer for specific advice on glove selection and breakthrough times for your use conditions. Inspect and replace worn or damaged gloves. The types of gloves to be considered for this material include:

If prolonged or repeated contact is likely, chemical-resistant gloves are recommended.  If contact with forearms is likely, wear gauntlet-style gloves.  Neoprene, Nitrile, CEN standards EN 420 and EN 374 provide general requirements and lists of glove types.

Eye Protection:   If contact is likely, safety glasses with side shields are recommended.

Skin and Body Protection:    Any specific clothing information provided is based on published literature or manufacturer data.  The types of clothing to be considered for this material include:

If prolonged or repeated contact is likely, chemical, and oil resistant clothing is recommended.

Specific Hygiene Measures:   Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking.  Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants.  Discard contaminated clothing and footwear that cannot be cleaned. Practice good housekeeping.

STABILITY:  Material is stable under normal conditions.

CONDITIONS TO AVOID:  Excessive heat. High energy sources of ignition.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:  Material does not decompose at ambient temperatures.


Disposal recommendations based on material as supplied.  Disposal must be in accordance with current applicable laws and regulations, and material characteristics at time of disposal.


Suitable routes of disposal are supervised incineration, preferentially with energy recovery, or appropriate recycling methods in accordance with applicable regulations and material characteristics at the time of disposal.


NOTE:  These codes are assigned based upon the most common uses for this material and may not reflect contaminants resulting from actual use.  Waste producers need to assess the actual process used when generating the waste and its contaminants in order to assign the proper waste disposal code(s).

Empty Container Warning Empty Container Warning (where applicable):  Empty containers may contain residue and can be dangerous.  Do not attempt to refill or clean containers without proper instructions.  Empty drums should be completely drained and safely stored until appropriately reconditioned or disposed.  Empty containers should be taken for recycling, recovery, or disposal through suitably qualified or licensed contractor and in accordance with governmental regulations.  DO NOT PRESSURISE, CUT, WELD, BRAZE, SOLDER, DRILL, GRIND, OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC ELECTRICITY, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION.  THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH.
