Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

General advice:       In the case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show the label where possible).

If inhaled:              If breathed in, move person into fresh air.

In case of skin contact:       Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water.

In case of eye contact:       Rinse the affected eye with plenty of water, at the same time keep the unaffected eye well protected.

If swallowed       :       If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show this container or label.

Skin contact may provoke the following symptoms: skin sensitisation, Severe irritation, Redness Itching, Dermatitis

Treatment:       Elementary aid, decontamination and symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Observe standard procedure for chemical fires.

Suitable extinguishing media: Alcohol-resistant foam, Dry powder, Water spray jet

Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet, High pressure inert gas (e.g. Carbon dioxide (CO2))

Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Specific hazards during fire-fighting:       In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO), Carbon dioxide (CO2), Hydrogen fluoride (HF), Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

                    Under certain conditions of combustion traces of other toxic substances cannot be excluded.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:                      Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions. In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Please observe escape and rescue routes!

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use personal protective clothing. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Environmental precautions       : Avoid release to the environment. Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water.

Methods for cleaning up:         Use mechanical handling equipment. Avoid raising dust. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing              environmental regulations.

               When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal". Containers in which spilt substance has been collected must be adequately labelled.

Handling and storage

Attention - The product is not yet completely tested

The data is not sufficient for an industrial toxicological evaluation. Usual hygenic measures must be taken as the case is when dealing with chemicals.

Possible sensitising potential in humans. May cause sensitisation of susceptible persons.

This substance should be handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 17(3) for on-site isolated intermediates. Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems should be available at each manufacturing site.

Advice on safe handling:       

Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary). Avoid the formation and deposition of dust.

Provide exhaust ventilation if dust is formed. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Persons susceptible to skin sensitisation problems or asthma should not be employed in any process in which this substance is being used.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:

Organic products which are intentionally or unintentionally in powdered form have, in principle, the possibility of creating a dust explosion hazard

must be considered. Take precautionary measures against build-up of electrostatic charges, e.g  earthing during loading and off-loading operations.

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection.

Hygiene measures: Do not eat, drink or smoke during work time. Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again.

Garments that cannot be cleaned must be destroyed (burnt). Keep away from food and drink. Clean hands and face during work intervals and after work

Avoid contact of the substance.

Requirements for storage areas and containers

Do not store together with explosive, oxidizing, infectious and radioactive products. Keep away from foodstuffs.

Keep container tightly closed in a well-ventilated place. Protect from heat and direct sunlight.

Exposure controls / personal protection

We are not aware of any national exposure limit.

General protective measures: Do not inhale dust. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Engineering measures: Product should be handled and worked up in closed equipment as far as possible. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.

Eye protection: Depending on the risk, wear sufficient eye protection (safety glasses with side protection or goggles, and if necessary, face  shield.)

Hand protection:       

Choose gloves to protect hands against chemicals depending on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous substance and specific to place of work.

The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it. Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact).

Suitable: Nitrile rubber gloves. Butyl rubber gloves. With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.

Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough. Gloves must be rinsed thoroughly after use.

Skin and body protection: Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concen-tration and amount of dangerous substances, and to the specific workplace, e.g. apron, boots, protective

suit (EN 14605, EN ISO 13982-1, EN 13034).

Respiratory protection: In case of dust formation, use a fine dust face mask. Respiratory protection complying with EN 143.

Stability and reactivity

No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use. Stable under normal conditions. When handled and stored appropriately no dangerous reactions are known

Avoid heat, flames and sparks.

Materials to avoid: No data available.

When handled and stored appropriately, no dangerous decomposition products are known. Under the conditions of fire hazardous substances may be formed.

Disposal considerations

Product: Special waste incineration plant, after consultation with operators. Observe local authority regulations.

Contaminated packaging: Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of as product waste. For disposal local regulation is binding.
