First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Symptomatic treatment
Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate promptly with clean water
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use water mist, carbon dioxide or foam. Although treated to
minimise dust formation, this product may produce flammable
dust clouds in air; every care should be taken to prevent
dust formation.

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and sulfur
oxides together with hydrogen chloride gas and soot

Product determined by test: N

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Damp down, sweep up, and shovel into containers for disposal
by incineration

Handling and storage

Handling: Use normal standards of good housekeeping to avoid
ingestion,skin and eye contact,and, in particular,the
inhalation of dust.Respirators should be used if dust is

Storage: No special precautions

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Not given, 6th amendment notification.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from minor spillages, discharges to effluent or
from dyed fabrics is not economically feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: If diluted to a level at which there is no visible
colouration of the effluent, no harmful effect on aquatic
life is likely. Disposal at a landfillsite is possible

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: May be rendered harmless by burning under carefully
controlled conditions. Waste gas treatment to remove
nitrogen and sulfur oxides together with hydrogen chloride
gas should be used

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: From the data presented in section 5 and in the literature
(Brown et al, Chemosphere, 1981, 10(3), 245-261), the
substance is unlikely to have any adverse effects on the
aerobic or anaerobic processes within a sewage works. It is
unlikely to be appreciably degraded aerobically nor to be
adsorbed significantly onto sludge and thus will probably
pass through an effluent treatment plant mainly unchanged.
However, it is extensively degraded under anaerobic
conditions and therefore any which is adsorbed on sludge
during passage through a sewage works is likely to be
biodegraded in the digester.

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