First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment. Seek medical
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse thoroughly with water for 15 minutes. Seek medical
attention if irritation continues.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water. Seek medical attention if
irritation continues.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Drink water. Symptomatic treatment. Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: water fog, foam, dry chemical media, carbon dioxide

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (oxides of carbon, nitrogen and
sulphur and sodium containing compounds)

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personner from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards, as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material
(eg. sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to

waste containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as th original substance containers.

Clean the spillage area with detergent and water- Avoid
release to drain.

Dispose of waste in accordance with local regulations by
landfill or incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be handled and used under conditions of
good industrial hygiene and in conformity with any local
regulations in order to avoid oral, dermal and inhalative

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance. Common industry practice is the use of down-flow

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment e.g. ::::: should conform to the
appropriate international or national standards as follows:
Chemical protective gloves to Standard prEN374

Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard prEN166.

Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be
used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure,
be suitable for the purpose and conform to the appropriate
international or national standards. Positive pressure dust
masks are recommended.

Conspicuously labelled eye-douche stations should be
provided in the immediate vicinity of the working area.

In cases where dusts can form, due to the potential dust-
explosion risk, potential sources of ignition should be
removed from the working area. In addition, measures should
be taken to prevent electrostatic discharges.

Storage: The substance should be stored in the original packing drums
or other secure containers which are labelled according to
the regulations under conditions of good industrial hygiene.
Storage in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Keep
containers tightly closed when not in use and secure them
against falling by taking the appropriate measures.

Avoid residues on the outside of the containers.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 25 kg cardboard boxes

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration or landfill. In principle, it
may be possible to recover larger spillages of
uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is a
severe eye irritant; there are also reasounable grounds for
concern over potential respiratory sensitisation for this
reactive dye. In order to minimize these hazardous health
properties the product is marketed in form of poor dust
granulate. The most reasonable way to avoid any hazardous
effect is to prevent contact with eyes by using safety
glasses with side protection shield and to avoid any
inhalation by using proper technical devices.

A potential dust explosion hazard is neutralized by
appropriate storage and handling measures of the neat

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (e. sand or soil) may be disposed of by
landfill at an authorized tip in accordance with local

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be dispised of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gas
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (e. oxides of
carbon, nitrogen and sulphur) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Treatment in a wastewater treatment plant.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable as the substance will not enter the public
domain except as part of an article.
