Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Warning before intervention

Spillages make surfaces slippery


Inhalation at ambient temperature is unlikely because of the low vapour pressure of the substance.

Symptoms: irritation of the respiratory tract due to excess fume, mists or vapour exposure.

In case of symptoms arising from inhalation of fumes, mists or vapour: Remove casualty to a quiet and well ventilated place if safe to do so.

If the casualty is unconscious and:

- not breathing – ensure that there is no obstruction to breathing and give artificial respiration by trained personnel.  If necessary, give external cardiac massage and obtain medical assistance.

- breathing: place in recovery position. Administer oxygen if necessary.

Obtain medical assistance if breathing remains difficult.

Skin Contact

Symptoms: dry skin, irritation may arise in case of repeated or prolonged exposure.

Remove contaminated clothing and footwear, and dispose of safely.

Wash affected area with soap and water.

Seek medical attention if skin irritation, swelling or redness develops and persists.

Eye Contact

Symptoms: slight irritation (unspecific).

Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes.  Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do so.  Continue rinsing.

If irritation, blurred vision or swelling occurs and persists, obtain medical attention.


Symptoms: few or no symptoms expected. If any, nausea and diarrhoea might occur.

Always assume that aspiration has occurred. Seek professional medical attention or send the casualty to a hospital.  Do not wait for symptoms to develop.  

Do not induce vomiting as there is a risk of aspiration.

Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that the vomit does not enter the lungs (aspiration). Once vomiting ceases, place the person in the recovery position with the legs slightly raised.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media

- Foam (Specifically trained personnel only)

- Water fog (Specifically trained personnel only)

- Dry chemical powder

- Carbon dioxide

- Other inert gases (subject to regulations)

- Sand or earth

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media

Do not use direct water jets on the burning product; they could cause splattering and spread the fire.

Simultaneous use of foam and water on the same surface is to be avoided as water destroys the foam.

Combustion Products

Incomplete combustion is likely to give rise to a complex mixture of airborne solid and liquid particulates and gases, including carbon monoxide and unidentified organic and inorganic compounds.

Protective Equipment for Firefighters

In case of a large fire or in confined or poorly ventilated spaces wear full fire resistant protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Evacuate people upwind from the spill area. Eliminate fire risk by keeping ignition sources out of the area.

Environmental precautions

Do not release into the ground, waters or sewersystem.

Clean-up methods

Immediately start clean-up of the liquid and contaminated soil. Small amounts can be collected using absorbent material. Pay attention to the fire and health hazards caused by the product.

Further information

In case of spill, immediately contact local authorities. Wear adequate protective equipment at all operations.
