First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention, do not induce vomiting

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and
sulphur oxides together with some hydrogen chloride gas and
soot. Water mist, foam, carbon dioxide and dry powder can
be used as extinguishing agents.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Powder: Sweep up and dispose of material at a landfill
site or by incineration. Solutions: Soak up on absorbent
material and dispose of at a landfill site or by
incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: Minimise exposure by use of engineering controls, standard
occupational hygiene procedures and good housekeeping.
Eye/face protection, head covering and impermeable gloves
(plastic or rubber) should be used. Weighing to be in an
enclosed ventilated area and on low level scales for ease
of handling.

Storage: No special precautions.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Dyebath residues are not recoverable

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No hazardous effects have been observed during testing.
Therefore, neutralisation is not necessary.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a landfill site is possible (observe local
regulations).

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Disposal at an incinerator equipped to deal with the acidic
waste gases (nitrogen and sulphor oxides and hydrogen
chloride gas) is possible. The formation of dioxins is
considered unlikely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: In view of the toxicity to fish, the waste water from
dyebaths should be diluted tenfold before discharging to a
sewage plant. The substance is not biodegradable; it will
be eliminated from sludge by sedimentation and absorption.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from dyed material is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Dyed material may be disposed of as for household material.
