Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

4.1. Description of first aid measures

General advice

Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms occur which are obviously caused by

skin or eye contact with the product or by inhalation of its vapours. Take off all

contaminated clothing immediately.


Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of discomfort: Supply with

medical care.

Skin contact

If skin irritation occurs consult a physician. Wash off immediately with soap and


Eye contact

Flush eyes thoroughly with a large amount of water and consult a physician.


Do not induce vomiting. Consult a physician immediately.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Eye irritation, Skin irritation, difficulty breathing, coughing

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide

Extinguishing media which must not

be used for safety reasons


5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.

5.3. Advice for firefighters

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Assure sufficient ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Keep away sources of ignition. Use breathing apparatus if

exposed to vapours/dust/mist/aerosol.

6.2. Environmental precautions

Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Larger quantities: Remove mechanically (by pumping). Use explosion-proof equipment! Smaller quantities and/or residues:

Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid absorbent, universal absorbent or sawdust). Dispose

of in accordance with regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections

For personal protection see section 8.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling

Safe handling advice

Keep container tightly closed. Provide good room ventilation even at ground level

(vapours are heavier than air).

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Keep away from sources

of ignition In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. When

heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures

may form in air.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers

Protect from the action of light. For brief storage periods the temperature must not

exceed 50°C; for longer storage periods, the temperature must not exceed 30°C.

Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen (air) is required for

stabilisation. With large storage containers make sure the oxygen (air) supply is

sufficient to ensure stability. Can polymerize with intense heat release.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

see section 8.2.

8.2. Exposure controls

For monitoring procedures refer for instance to "Empfohlene Analysenverfahren für Arbeitsplatzmessungen",

Schriftenreihe der Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz and "NIOSH Manual of Analytical Methods", National Institute for

Occupational Safety and Health

Protective measures

Do not breathe vapours. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Hygiene measures

Store work clothing separately. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.

Follow the usual good standards of occupational hygiene. Clean skin thoroughly

after work; apply skin cream.

Respiratory protection

Breathing apparatus in case of high concentrations, short term: filter appliance,

filter A

Hand protection

butyl rubber gloves (0.7 mm), Break through time 60 min (EN 374)

In practice, due to variable exposure conditions, this information can only be an aid

to orientation for the selection of a suitable chemical protection glove. In particular,

this information does not substitute suitability tests by the end user.

General information

Gloves should be replaced regularly, especially after extended contact with the

product. For each work-place a suitable glove type has to be selected.

Eye protection

tightly fitting goggles

Skin and body protection

On handling of larger quantities: face mask, chemical-resistant boots and apron

Stability and reactivity

10.1. Reactivity

see section 10.2.

10.2. Chemical stability

No decomposition if used as directed.

10.3. Possibility of hazardous reactions

Polymerization with heat evolution may occur in the presence of radical forming substances (e.g. peroxides), reducing

substances, and/or heavy metal ions.

10.4. Conditions to avoid

The product is normally supplied in a stabilized form. If the permissible storage period and/or storage temperature is

exceeded, the product may polymerize with heat evolution.

10.5. Incompatible materials

Free radical initiators.

Reducing agents.

Tertiary amines.

Heavy metals.


oxidizing agents

Mineral acids.

10.6. Hazardous decomposition products

None when used as directed.

Disposal considerations

13.1. Waste treatment methods


Waste is hazardous. It must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations after

consultation of the competent local authorities and the disposal company in a

suitable and licensed facility.

Uncleaned packaging

Contaminated packages must be emptied as good as possible. They may then be

recycled after proper cleaning. Packages that cannot be cleaned must be disposed

of in the same way as the substance. Uncontaminated packaging may be taken for


Code of waste EWC

07 02 08

waste from the manufacture, formulation, supply and use (MFSU) of plastics,

synthetic rubber and man-made fibres - other still bottoms and reaction residues

Always check the given waste codes according to the actual conditions of

manufacturing, formulation or use in your facilities.
