Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of first measures

- General notes : Take off contaminated clothes

- Inhalation:  Keep patient calm, Remove to fresh air and treat symptomatically.  Acquire medical advice.

- Skin contact: Wash affected areas with plenty of soap and water, if available, for several minutes.  Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

- Eye contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for several minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.

- Ingestion: If swallowed, rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water. Ask for medical advise

Fire-fighting measures

Fire Fighting Measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

Water spray, dry extinguishing media, foam (CO2)

Special hazard arising from the substance :

• May produce carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and hydrogen chloride when heated to decomposition

• Powder will not easily ignite in bulk, but may burn or smolder and may evolve flammable vapour, if involved in fire.

Advice for firefighters

Fire fighters should wear full protective clothing and NIOSH approved self contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non-emergency personnel

 Protective equipment: Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing and also provide respiratory equipments and eye protection.

 Emergency procedures: Cover spill with some inert absorbent material. Provide ventilation and control dust formation

 Removal of ignition sources: In case of a fire, remove source of ignition if this can be done without risks.

 Provision of sufficient ventilation: Proper ventilation should be provided to avoid the formation of dust and collection of the hazardous decomposition products in case of an emergency.

 Control of dust: Avoid dust generation and accumulation by the provision of adequate ventilation

For emergency responders: Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing. Avoid breathing vapours, gas in case of fire. Prevent dust generation as dusty conditions increase the risk of a dust explosion hazard

Environmental precautions

Do not drain into soil or streams or sources of water. Ventilate area

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Containment technique:

(a) Bunding, covering of drains: Ensure that the product does not enter drains or sources of water by proper covering of drainage system.

(b) Capping procedures: Keep in tightly closed packing.

Cleaning up:

(a) neutralisation techniques : Absorb spill with non-combustible inert material

(b) Decontamination techniques: Wash thoroughly with water after dealing with a spillage.

(c) Adsorbent materials: Cover with some inert absorbent material such as sand, earth.

(d) Cleaning techniques: Sweep up, place in bag and hold for waste disposal.

(e) Equipment required for containment/clean-up: Use non-sparking tools for clean-up where there are chances of dust formation.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Recommendations shall be specified to:

(a) Allow safe handling of the substance: Do not expose to high temperatures and keep away from sources of ignition. Use adequately ventilated areas for storage.

(b) Prevent handling of incompatible substances: Avoid handling the substance while working with oxidizing agents and acids.

(c) Reduce the release of the substance to the environment: Do not release into the atmosphere or water sources. Do not drain into soil.

Advice on general occupational hygiene shall be provided:

(a) Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas

(b) Wash hands after use and before eating

(c) Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

(a) How to manage risks associated with:

(i) Explosive atmospheres: Prevent dust generation as dusty conditions increase the risk of a dust explosion hazard.

(ii) corrosive conditions: The substance is non corrosive to metals

(iii) Flammability hazards: Keep away from heat, open flame, etc.

(iv) Incompatible substances or mixtures: Do not store together with oxidizing agents and avoid dust.

(v) evaporative conditions: Not applicable as per physical state of the substance

(vi) Potential ignition sources (including electrical equipment): Store away from potential sources of ignition such as excessive heat, open flame, etc.

(b) How to control the effects of:  

(i) Weather conditions: Keep away from heat and moisture. Keep packing tightly closed and store in properly ventilated area.

(ii) ambient pressure: Not determined

(iii) Temperature: Store in a cool place.

(iv) sunlight: Store away from sunlight

(v) Humidity: Store in a dry place in tightly closed packing away from moisture.

(c) How to maintain the integrity of the substance or mixture by the use of:

(i) stabilisers: Not available

(ii) antioxidants: Not available

(d) Other advice including:

(i) Ventilation requirements: Storage should be with adequate ventilation to avoid formation of dust.

(ii) Specific designs for storage rooms or vessels: Provide local or general exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to avoid formation of dust.

(iii) quantity limits under storage conditions (if relevant): Not relevant

(iv) Packaging compatibilities: Do not store in moisture absorbing materials
