Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If inhaled, provide fresh air, warmth, rest and seek medical


Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash out eye thoroughly with plenty of water until

irritation subsides. If necessary, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Skin: Immediately wash contaminated skin with soap and large

quantities of water. If necessary, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: To suit local surroundings (e.g. water spray, carbon

dioxide, foam, chemical powder)

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a

fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg oxides of carbon and


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 personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to

the relevant national or international standards, as

mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Avoid dust formation. Absorb spillages of solutions with a

suitable inert material (eg. sand or soil). Carefully sweep

the spillage into waste containers, or use a sealed

industrial vacuum machine. Containers filled with waste

material must be labelled in the same way as the original

substance containers.

Clean the spillage area with soap and water.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local


Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure. It is

recommended that those with a history of sensitisation

should not handle this product. The raising and deposition

of dust should be kept to a minimum.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166.

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, such as a

dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store in a well ventilated area. Keep containers tightly

closed, cool and dry.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: RCX 2037 Stage Two is to be packaged in approximately 40kg l

ots in continuous liner and sealed at both ends with 375mm w

hite plastic ties. Each lot will be placed in a polythene ba

g and sealed with a 375mm white plastic tie. Each lot will b

e placed in a fibreboard drum.

Each container carries a uniquely numbered label indicating

the gross and nett weights and identity of the contents

(name and batch number). The container is sealed with a

uniquely numbered tamper evident seal.

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. 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 not

hazardous to health.

The dust explosion hazard will be controlled by appropriate

storage and handling techniques.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the

hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with

inert material (eg. sand or soil) may be disposed of by

landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local


Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning

under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon and

nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to

the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,

adverse effects  on sewage treatment systems would be
