Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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: Remove to fresh air. Give oxygen and seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush with running water for at least 15 minutes and seek
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash thoroughly with soap and large amounts of water. Seek
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: If confined to mouth, give large quantities of water as a
mouth wash, ensuring it is not swallowed. If swallowed, give
about 300ml of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting.
Remove to hospital.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam, dry powder or carbon dioxide.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon, sulphur and
nitrogen oxides plus Bromine containing compounds).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards, as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material
(eg. sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a sealed

industrial vacuum machine. Containers filled with waste
material must be labelled in the same way as the original
substance containers, and sent for incineration.

Clean the spillage area with water.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure to skin,
eyes and by inhalation.

Engineering controls necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance eg local extraction, must be used during

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment must be worn.

Such protective equipment conforms to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves (PVC gauntlet EN.388, EN.371/2
and EN.371/3)

Chemical protective clothing (paper suit with airhood -
EN.467 and EN.270)

Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be

used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure,

be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the appropriate
international or national standards.These protective
measures are regarded as a minimum, and must be adhered to
at all times during processing.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area.

Keep containers tightly closed and upright when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Fibre drums, double lined with polyethylene liners, closed
with a lever closing ring.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.

Dust explosion: There is a potential for a dust explosion for this organic
powder. However, appropriate handling and storage procedures
and adoption of a safe system of work will reduce this risk.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration . In principle, it may be
possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated
material for subsequent use. Method A:610.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is
harmful if swallowed, a skin and severe eye irritant and a
skin sensitiser. There is cause for concern regarding
mutagenicity from a positive chromosome aberration study.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous health properties.

The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate handling
and storage techniques. Method A: 630.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg. sand or soil) are disposed of by
incineration in accordance with local regulations. Method A:

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon,
nitrogen and sulphur oxides plus bromine-containing
compounds) could be formed. Method A: 661.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
unlikely and not anticipated. Method A: 640
