First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove the person to the fresh air. Seek medical attention in case of breathing difficulties.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with large quantities of water. If irritation persists, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Skin: Clean with large quantities of water, soap or other suitable agents which are kind to the skin. If irritation persists, seek medical advice

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Get the affected person to drink large quantities of water. Seek medical advice in the case of feeling unwell.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Directed water spray, foam, extinguishing powder, carbon dioxide

Product arising from burning: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride.

Protective equipment: Wear a self-contained respirator in the case of a fire in the immediate surrounding area.

Accidental release measures

Take up the substance with a dust-binding material or suitable vacuum cleaner. Avoid the formation of dust. Place into containers labelled in accordance with the regulations. Use the necessary personal protective equipment (see handling) during this work.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance is considered safe for handling in for its intended use. Utilise safe filling and metering equipment which prevents contact with the substance must be ensured. Effective exhaust ventilation must be ensured during handling of the substance, in particular in the case of the formation of dusts or vapours/aerosols. The protective measures which usually apply in the chemical industry should be utilised.

Dust masks, e.g. a filtrating half mask P1, goggles, e.g. tightly fitting goggles, gloves, e.g. polyethylene or
polypropylene disposable gloves and protective clothing, e.g. normal working clothes must be worn. Do not inhale the dust. Respiratory protection must be worn in the case of inadequate exhaust ventilation or prolonged exposure.

Storage: Keep containers tightly closed and store in a dry place. Secure containers against falling. Keep away from light. All of the opened packing drums must be closed tightly again after use.

Avoid product residues on the packing drums.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Cardboard box with PE inner liner (30 l)

Exposure controls / personal protection

The following Risk Management Measures are therefore recommended to facilitate good hygiene standards:
Local Exhaust Ventilation, where available
Hand protection, such as chemically resistant gloves e.g. PVC or nitrile rubber (e.g. EN374)
Protective clothing to EN368 standard as minimum
Eye protection - safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN166)
Respiratory protection with 95% reduction of inhaled substance when handling material that may generate dust. (e.g. EN149)

Stability and reactivity

The substance is considered stable when used in the manner for which it is intended.

REACTIVITY: Stable

CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Avoid dust build up and heat, flames, sparks and other sources of ignition in case of dust explosivity hazard. Containers may rupture or explode if exposed to heat.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION:
Thermal decomposition products: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery or reutilization of used dyes is not possible in
practice.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not known

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at seepage-proof landfills is possible. The
relevant laws and local regulations must be observed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Dry dyes may be incinerated. This results in the
formation of the waste gases which normally occur during the incineration of organic compounds containing
carbon, nitrogen and sulphur. Dependent on the quantity of the dye which is to be incinerated, special flue-gas treatment may therefore be necessary. As a rule, dye run-offs are too diluted for incineration to be a sensible option.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Organic dyes in the waste water are aerobic and not
biodegradable in the case of a short retention time. In biological waste-water treatment plants the relatively
low parts of residual dye can, however, be practically eliminated by means of precipitation or adsorption to the
sewage sludge.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The public at large does not come into contact with the
substance in the case of use as intended. Use by the public at large only occurs in the form of the products produced from the substance (dyed products).

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: None known

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The products which only contain the substance in low quantities can be disposed of together with household waste by means of landfilling.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration is the preferred option for disposing of the
dyed products which only contain the substance in small quantities.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: Not applicable
