Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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


Remove from further exposure.  For those providing assistance, avoid exposure to yourself or others.  Use adequate respiratory protection.  If respiratory irritation, dizziness, nausea, or unconsciousness occurs, seek immediate medical assistance.  If breathing has stopped, assist ventilation with a mechanical device or use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.


Wash contact areas with soap and water.


Flush thoroughly with water.  If irritation occurs, get medical assistance.


First aid is normally not required. Seek medical attention if discomfort occurs.

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


Flash Point [Method]:  274 C (ASTM D92)

Flammable Limits (Approximate volume % in air):  LEL:  0.25%     UEL:  1.3 %

Autoignition Temperature:   405 C (ASTM E659-06)

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.  Prevent 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).
