Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

General advice

Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash/Decontaminate removed clothing before reuse. First aider needs to protect himself.  


Remove from exposure, lie down. Keep at rest. Aerate with fresh air. Symptoms of poisoning may develop many hours after exposure. Call a physician immediately.  


Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses. Immediate medical attention is required.  


Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.  


Call a physician immediately.  Do not induce vomiting without medical advice.

Main symptoms

shortness of breath, gastrointestinal discomfort.  

Special hazard

Lung oedema, Lung irritation.  

Notes to physician

Treat symptomatically. Symptoms may be delayed. In case of lung irritation, first treatment with cortisone spray. If ingested, flush stomach and compensate acidosis. Later control for pneumonia and lung oedema.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

carbon dioxide (CO2), alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical, water spray

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons

Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.  

Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or released gases

Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of:

carbon monoxide (CO)

carbon dioxide (CO2)

Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons

Vapour is heavier than air and can travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flashback

Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

Fire fighter protection should include a self-contained breathing apparatus (NIOSH-approved or EN 133) and full fire-fighting turn out gear.  

Precautions for fire-fighting

Cool containers / tanks with water spray. Dike and collect water used to fight fire. Water run-off and vapor cloud may be corrosive. Water run-off can cause environmental damage. Keep people away from and upwind of fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing vapors or mists. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

For emergency responders: Personal protection see section 8.  

Environmental precautions

Prevent further leakage or spillage. Do not discharge product into the aquatic environment without pretreatment (biological treatment plant). Water runoff can cause environmental damage.  

Methods for containment

Stop the flow of material, if possible without risk. Dike spilled material, where this is possible.  

Methods for cleaning up

Soak up with inert absorbent material. DO NOT use combustible materials such as sawdust. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. If liquid has been spilt in large quantities clean up promptly by scoop or vacuum. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours).

Handling and storage


Advice on safe handling

Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.  

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours). Ground and bond containers when transferring material. In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be available. Vapour is heavier than air and can travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flashback. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.  

Advice on the protection of the environment

See Section 8: Environmental exposure controls.  


Technical measures/Storage conditions

Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Handle and open container with care.  

Advice on common storage

Incompatible products:



strong oxidizing agents

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls


Engineering measures

General or dilution ventilation is frequently insufficient as the sole means of controlling employee exposure. Local ventilation is usually preferred. Explosion-proof equipment (for example fans, switches, and grounded ducts) should be used in mechanical ventilation systems.  

Personal protective equipment  

General industrial hygiene practice

Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.  

Hygiene measures

When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.  

Respiratory protection

self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133). Equipment should conform to EN 136 or EN 140 and EN 143.  

Hand protection

Wear protective gloves. Recommendations are listed below. Other protective material may be used, depending on the situation, if adequate degradation and permeation data is available. If other chemicals are used in conjunction with this chemical, material selection should be based on protection for all chemicals present.  

 Suitable material butyl-rubber

 Evaluation according to EN 374: level 3

 Glove thickness approx 0,3 mm

 Break through time approx 50 min


Suitable material


 Evaluation Information derived from practical experience

 Glove thickness approx 0,8 mm


Eye protection

Tightly fitting safety goggles. In addition to goggles, wear a face shield if there is a reasonable chance for splash to the face. Equipment should conform to EN 166.  

Skin and body protection

Impervious clothing. Wear face-shield and protective suit for abnormal processing problems.  

Environmental exposure controls

Use product only in closed system. If leakage can not be prevented, the substance needs to be suck off at the emersion point, if possible without danger. Observe the exposure limits, clean exhaust air if needed. If recycling is not practicable, dispose of in compliance with local regulations. Inform the responsible authorities in case of leakage into the atmosphere, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains.

Stability and reactivity


Stable under normal conditions of handling, use and transportation.  

Hazardous reactions

Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.  

Conditions to avoid

Avoid any source of ignition. Avoid contact with heat, sparks, open flame, and static discharge.  

Materials to avoid

amines, bases, strong oxidizing agents.

Disposal considerations

Product Information

Disposal required in compliance with all waste management related state and local regulations. The choice of the appropriate method of disposal depends on the product composition by the time of disposal as well as the local statutes and possibilities for disposal. Hazardous waste according to European Waste Catalogue (EWC).  

Uncleaned empty packaging

Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be taken for reuse.
