Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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: Remove to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment. Seek immediate

medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash eyes immediately with plenty of water for at least 15

minutes. Seek immediate medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash skin thoroughly with soap and plenty of water. Seek

medical attention.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Wash mouth out with water (only if person is conscious) and

seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: carbon dioxide, dry powder, foam

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

fire, evolving extremely noxious fumes (eg hydrogen

chloride, phosgene and carbon oxides). However, there is no

experimental evidence to support the anticipated combustion


Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

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.

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 the original substance containers.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent.

Dispose of waste material by incineration in accordance with

local regulations.

Handling and storage

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

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

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 equipmemt should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard prEN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard prEN166

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be

used. organic vapour mask conforming to EN405 FFA1.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a


Storage: Store in a dry well-ventilated area, away from sources of


Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Glass ampoule, steel jerrycan (UN approved) or steel drum

(UN approved) in accordance with IATA regulations.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Dangerous reactions may occur with the following;

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Handling of the substance will be by trained operators and

will be kept to a minimum.

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 substance is considered hazardous to health.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the

hazardous health properties.

There are no hazardous environmental effects.

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 extremely noxious fumes (eg

hydrogen chloride, phosgene and carbon oxides) could be


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


Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.
