First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment. Seek medical

attention.

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

exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

substance. Common industry practice is the use of down-flow

booths.

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

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: unknown

Chemical reaction with water: hydrolysis

Dust explosion: There is a potential dust explosion hazard from this organic

powder.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

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

substance.

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

regulations.

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.
