Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

General advice:

Remove contaminated clothing.

On skin contact:

Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

On contact with eyes:

Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.

On ingestion:

Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Note to physician:

Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific


Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

water spray, dry extinguishing media, foam, carbon dioxide

Special protective equipment:

Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:

The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated

extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Environmental precautions:

Do not empty into drains.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:

For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose

binder, kieselguhr).

For large amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose

binder, kieselguhr).

Handling and storage


Protection against fire and explosion:

No special precautions necessary.


Suitable materials for containers: aluminum, Stainless steel 1.4439, High density polyethylene

(HDPE). Prevent ingress of water to maintain quality

Exposure controls / personal protection

Additional Information:       

Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking and using the toilet. Launder contaminated clothing before re-use.

Personal Protective Equipment:       

Personal protective equipment (PPE) should meet recommended national standards. Check with PPE suppliers.

Respiratory Protection:       If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations to a level which is adequate to protect worker health, select respiratory protection equipment suitable for the specific conditions of use and meeting relevant legislation. Check with respiratory protective equipment suppliers. Where air-filtering respirators are unsuitable (e.g., airborne concentrations are high, risk of oxygen deficiency, confined space) use appropriate positive pressure breathing apparatus. Where air-filtering respirators are suitable, select an appropriate combination of mask and filter. Select a filter suitable for combined particulate/organic gases and vapours [boiling point >65 °C (149 °F)] meeting EN141 (AS/NZS:1716).

Hand Protection:       Where hand contact with the product may occur the use of gloves approved to relevant standards (e.g. Europe: EN374, US: F739, AS/NZS:2161) made from the following materials may provide suitable chemical protection: Longer term protection: PVC. Neoprene rubber. Nitrile rubber. Suitability and durability of a glove is dependent on usage, e.g. frequency and duration of contact, chemical resistance of glove material, glove thickness, dexterity. Always seek advice from glove suppliers. Contaminated gloves should be replaced.

             Personal hygiene is a key element of effective hand care. Gloves must only be worn on clean hands. After using gloves, hands should be washed and dried thoroughly. Application of a non-perfumed moisturizer is recommended.

Eye Protection:       Chemical splash goggles (chemical monogoggles).

Protective Clothing:       Skin protection not ordinarily required beyond standard issue work clothes. Chemical resistant gloves/gauntlets, boots, and apron.

Monitoring Methods:       Monitoring of the concentration of substances in the breathing zone of workers or in the general workplace may be required to confirm compliance with an OEL and adequacy of exposure controls.  

Environmental Exposure Controls:       The level of protection and types of controls necessary will vary depending upon potential exposure conditions. Select controls based on a risk assessment of local circumstances.  Appropriate measures include: Adequate ventilation to control airborne concentrations. Exhaust emission systems should be designed in accordance with local conditions; the air should always be moved away from the source of vapour generation and the person working at this point. Eye washes and showers for emergency use. Firewater monitors and deluge systems are recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Stability:       Stable under normal conditions of use. Prevent ingress of water

Conditions to Avoid:       High Temperature.

Materials to Avoid:       Strong oxidising agents. Strong acids. Strong bases.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:       Thermal decomposition is highly dependent on conditions.  A complex mixture of airborne solids, liquids and gases, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and other organic compounds will be evolved when this material undergoes combustion or thermal or oxidative degradation.

Disposal considerations

Material Disposal:       Recover or recycle if possible. Waste arising from a spillage or tank cleaning should be disposed of in accordance with prevailing regulations, preferably to a recognised collector or contractor. The competence of the collector or contractor should be established beforehand. Remove all packaging for recovery or waste disposal.

      Do not dispose into the environment, in drains or in water courses. Waste product should not be allowed to contaminate soil or water.

Container Disposal:       Dispose in accordance with prevailing regulations, preferably to a recognised collector or contractor. The competence of the collector or contractor should be established beforehand.

Local Legislation:       Disposal should be in accordance with applicable regional, national, and local laws and regulations.
