Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

-After inhalation: Provide fresh air.

-After skin contact: Immediately wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly.

-After eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of flowing water for 10 to 15 minutes holding eyelids apart. If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/attention.

-After swallowing: In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing agents: Extinguishing powder, water spray jet. In case of major fire and large quantities: Alcohol resistant foam.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: High power water jet, carbon dioxide (CO2).

-Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.

-Additional information: Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. Do not allow entering drains or surface water. Dispose of waste according to applicable legislation.

Accidental release measures

-Person-related safety precautions: Avoid formation of dust. Wear suitable protective clothing.

-Measures for environmental protection: Do not allow  to enter into surface water or drains. If the product contaminates lakes, rivers or sewages, inform competent authorities in accordance with local regulations.

-Measures for cleaning/collecting: Do not use a dry brush as dust clouds can be created. Collect in closed and suitable containers for disposal.

Handling and storage


- Information for safe handling: Prevent formation of dust.


- Store in roofed places at room temperature. Keep/Store only in original container.

- Storage class: 13 (TRGS 510)

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection:

With normal handling, no respiratory personal protection (breathing apparatus) is necessary.

If risk for exceedance of OEL/DNEL, use e.g.:

dust filter-half mask P1 (efficiency 75%)

dust filter-half mask P2 (efficiency 90%)

dust filter-half mask P3 (efficiency 95%)

dust filter-full mask P1 (efficiency 75%)

dust filter-full mask P2 (efficiency 90 %)

dust filter-full mask P3 (efficiency 97.5%)

Hand protection:

Chemical proof protective gloves (EN 374) e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4mm),chloroprene rubber (0.5mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7mm), among others. Due to a large variety of types the manufacturer's instructions should be followed.

Eye protection: Protective glasses with side protection (safety goggles) (e.g. EN 166).

General protective and hygiene measures:

Information-training of the workers and their staff and line managers focused on careful hygiene behaviour. Wearing of gloves and protective clothing is compulsory (efficiency >=90%).

Engineering measures:

Local exhaust ventilation systems (generic LEC (84%) as worst case; higher efficiencies (90-95%) are usual. Cyclones/filters (for minimizing dust emissions) : efficiency: 70-90% (cyclones), 50-80% (dust filters), 85-95% (double stage, cassette filters)

Process enclosure, especially in potentially dusty units.

Dust control: dust and Zn in dust needs to be measured in the workplace air (static or individual) according to national regulations.

Special care for the general establishment and maintenance of a clean working environment by e.g.: Cleaning of process equipment and workshop.

Storage of packaged Zn product in dedicated zones.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Stable when applying the recommended regulations for storage and handling.

Hazardous reactions: No hazardous reactions when stored and handled according to instructions.

Hazardous decomposition products: No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Must be dumped or incinerated in accordance with local regulations. Check for possible recycling.

Contaminated packages must be completely emptied and can be re-used following proper cleaning.

Handle contaminated packages in the same way as the substance itself.

Packing which cannot be properly cleaned must be disposed of.
