Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Administrative data

First-aid measures

Product-Specific hazards:

Harmful if inhaled.

May be fatal if swallowed and enters airways.

General advice :

Take care to self-protect by avoiding becoming contaminated.

Use adequate respiratory protection.

Move contaminated patient(s) out of the dangerous area.

Take off all contaminated clothing and shoes.

Seek medical assistance - show the safety data sheet or label if possible. Material may produce a serious, potentially fatal pneumonia if swallowed or vomited.

Inhalation :

Move to fresh air.

Do not leave the victim unattended.

Keep patient warm and at rest.

Seek immediate medical attention.

If breathing is difficult, give oxygen if possible or assisted ventilation, (do not use mouth to mouth).

If unconscious, place in recovery position and seek medical advice.

In the event of cardiac arrest (no pulse), apply cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Skin contact :

Take off all contaminated clothing and shoes.

Immediately flush affected area with plenty of soap and water – continue for at least 15 minutes.

If there are signs of irritation or other symptoms seek medical attention.

Eye contact :

Remove any contact lenses.

Flush eyes with water thoroughly and continuously for at least 15 minutes.

Keep eye wide open while rinsing.

Protect unharmed eye.

If there are signs of irritation or other symptoms seek medical attention.

Ingestion :

Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water.

Do not give milk or alcoholic beverages.

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Keep respiratory tract clear.  Do NOT induce vomiting.  

Take victim immediately to hospital.

Advice to Physician :

In case of ingestion, Ipecac-induced emesis is not recommended.

Consider use of charcoal as a slurry (240mL water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults.

If determined necessary (and under qualified medical supervision), the stomach should be emptied by gastric lavage with the airway protected by endotracheal intubation.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media :

LARGE FIRE: Use water spray, water fog or foam. DO NOT use direct water jet.

SMALL FIRE: Dry powder or carbon dioxide (CO2) extinguisher, dry sand or fire fighting foam.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media :

(Do not use) Direct water jet.

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

Combustion Products :

Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and unburned hydrocarbons (smoke).

Specific hazards during fire fighting :

Containers may explode under fire conditions - use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses – may cause explosion hazard in drains and may reignite on surface water.

Advice for fire fighter:

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear an approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus in addition to standard fire fighting gear.

Accidental release measures

Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area).

Personal precautions :

Wear personal protective equipment.

Avoid breathing vapours or mist.

Ensure adequate ventilation and absence of sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions :

Prevent product from entering drains. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.  If the product contaminates rivers

and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Land spillage :

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Prevent spillage from entering drains, sewer, basement or confined areas.

Water spillage :

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

If the spillage contaminates rivers, lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods for clean up :

Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).  Keep in suitable, closed

containers for disposal.  

Water spillage:

Contain with booms or barriers, use surface acting agents to thicken spilled materials.

Remove trapped material with suction hoses.

Further accidental release measures :

Ensure all equipment is non sparking or electrically bonded.

Avoid direct contact with released material.

Stay upwind.

Keep non-involved personnel away from the area of spillage.

Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling :

Avoid formation of aerosol.

Do not breathe vapors/dust.

Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.

Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited.

Avoid all sources of ignition.

Avoid contact with heat, ignition sources and oxidizing agents.

Use only in well ventilated areas.

Containers should be opened only under exhaust ventilation hood.

Use proper bonding and/or grounding procedures.

This material is a static accumulator: Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Do not allow splash filling of bulk volumes.

Do not use compressed air for filling, discharging or handling.

Do not pressurise, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, or grind on containers.

The vapour is heavier than air, beware of accumulation in pits and confined spaces.

Cleaning, inspection and maintenance of the internal structure of storage tanks must be done

only by properly equipped and qualified personnel as defined by national, local or company regulation.

Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.

Storage :

No smoking.

Store in either mild steel or stainless steel containers or vessels.

Store in a designated cool and well-ventilated place.

Observe label precautions.  

Store in the original, tightly closed, container.

Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.

Keep container tightly closed and properly labelled.

Storage installations should be designed with adequate bunds so as to prevent ground and water pollution in case of leaks or spills.

Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards.

Fixed storage containers, transfer containers and associated equipment should be earthed and bonded to prevent accumulation of static charge.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Wear a supplied-air NIOSH approved respirator unless ventilation or other engineering controls are adequate to maintain minimal oxygen content of 19.5% by volume under normal atmospheric pressure.

Wear a NIOSH approved respirator that provides protection when working with this material if exposure to harmful levels of airborne material may

occur, such as:.  Use a positive pressure, air-supplying respirator if there is potential for uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or other circumstances where airpurifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.

Hand protection:  

The suitability for a specific workplace should be discussed with the producers of the protective gloves.  Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time.  Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough.  

Eye protection :  

Eye wash bottle with pure water.  Tightly fitting safety goggles.  

Skin and body protection:  

Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concentration and amount of dangerous substances, and to the

specific work-place.  

Wear as appropriate:.Protective suit. Safety shoes.  

Hygiene measures:  

When using do not eat or drink.  When using do not smoke.

Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
