First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move the exposed person to fresh air. In case of
indisposition seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water. If irritation occurs, seek
medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment. In case of indisposition seek medical

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam, dry powder, CO2.

Product arising from burning: Substance itself does not present a fire hazard. If involved
in a fire, mainly nitric oxides, carbon oxides as well as
sulfur-, fluorine-, chlorine-, copper- and sodium compounds
may be produced (derived from the structure).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Self contained breathing apparatus should be used.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: During handling and destruction of the substance, wear dust
mask, suitable goggles, impermeable gloves and protective

For dry residues, collect and dump in licensed landfill site
or discharge by incineration in suitable plant.

For spillage absorb with adequate absorber and discharge by
incineration in suitable plant or by dumping in licensed
landfill site.

The labelling of the containers filled with the substance to
be destroyed should indicate the danger of the substance.

Handling and storage

Handling: HANDLING

The usual precautions for the handling with chemicals should
be observed. Avoid any contact and wear impermeable gloves.

If the substance is handled as a powder, avoid dust
formation and wear dust mask. Dust-proof filling apparatus
or appropriate exhaust system should then be used.

Storage: STORAGE

The containers should be stored tightly closed in
unbreakable containers in adequate rooms.

Avoid spillings of the product outside the containers.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known

Chemical reaction with water: Does not react with water.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Normal application results in the consumption of 50 % by
irreversible binding to textiles.

Recovery for recycling of the remaining highly water soluble
substance is not reasonably practicable.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No possibilities known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Discharge in a controlled deposit is possible.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Discharge by incineration in suitable plant possible.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: It is estimated that approximately 50 % of the total
quantity used is discharged into internal industrial
effluents as a diluted solution. A purification of the waste
water is absolutely necessary. This substance can only be
used in a well equipped dye house.

The waste water can be purified by membrane filtration or by
floculation with cationic agents or by treatment with ozone.

The most effective method is the membrane filtration: more
than 99 % of the dyestuff can be removed from the waste
