Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move exposed person to fresh air; in case of indisposition

seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water; if irritation occurs, seek

medical advice.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment; in case of indisposition seek medical


Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, dry powder, foam

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and sulfur

oxides as well as sodium and chlorinated derivatives

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear self contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear protective clothing (dust mask, safety goggles and

impermeable gloves).

Solids: sweep up (wet powders with water) and place in

suitable containers for disposal.

Liquids: absorb using an adequate absorbent (such as

kieselgur, sand, saw dust) collect and place in suitable

containers for disposal.

Dispose of waste material in authorized incineration


Handling and storage

Handling: All working methods must always be designed so that

inhalation of the substance as well as skin and eye contact

are excluded.

Closed, or at least dustproof, equipment should be used

during filling and metered feeding as well as during


In the case of handling in open systems, any dust that can

from must be extracted directly at the point of origin.

To avoid skin or eye contact, the wearing of suitable

protective gloves (e.g.:::) or safe eye protection (e.g.:::)

is recommended.

Storage: The substance should be stored in well sealed and secure

containers in adequate rooms at room temperature. Avoid

residue outside the containers.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Adequate plastic containers

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Normal application results in the consumption of ca 88 % by

irreversible binding to the cellulose or polyamide fibers;

recovery or recycling of the remaining test substance is

not possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No suitable method known

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not suitable for deposit in landfill site.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration with flue gas scrubbing.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Removal by controlled discharge to a waste water treatment

plant. It is estimated that approx. 12 % of the total

quantity used is discharged into internal industrial

effluents as highly diluted solution. A purification of

the waste water in a waste water treatment plant is

recommended. The dyestuff should be used in a well equiped


If necessary the waste water can be purified prior to the

waste water treatment by membrane filtration or by

floculation with cationic agents or by treatment with ozone.

The most effective method is the membrane filtration: more

than 99 % of the remaining dyestuff can be removed from the

waste water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable
