Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Have the product container, label or Material Safety Data Sheet with you when calling an emergency number, a poison control center or physician, or going for treatment.


Move the victim to fresh air. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration. Keep patient warm and at rest. Call a physician or poison control centre immediately.

Skin contact:

Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off immediately with plenty of water. If skin irritation persists, call a physician. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Eye contact:

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


If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or label. Do NOT induce vomiting.

Medical advice:

There is no specific antidote available. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

Extinguishing media - small fires: Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Extinguishing media - large fires: Alcohol-resistant foam or Water spray

Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Specific hazards during fire fighting: As the product contains combustible organic components, fire will produce dense black smoke containing hazardous products of combustion. Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information: Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid dust formation.

Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods for cleaning up: Contain spillage, pick up with an electrically protected vacuum cleaner or by wet-brushing and transfer to a container for disposal according to local regulations. Do not create a powder cloud by using a brush or compressed air. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.

Additional advice: If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:

No special protective measures against fire required. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. For personal protection see Exposure Controls / Personal Protection.


Requirements for storage areas and containers: No special storage conditions required. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures:

Containment and/or segregation is the most reliable technical protection measure if exposure cannot be eliminated. The extent of these protection measures depends on the actual risks in use. If airborne dust is generated, use local exhaust ventilation controls. Assess exposure and use any additional measures to keep airborne levels below any relevant exposure limit. Where necessary, seek additional occupational hygiene advice.

Personal protective equipment:

Protective measures:

The use of technical measures should always have priority over the use of personal protective equipment. When selecting personal protective equipment, seek appropriate professional advice. Personal protective equipment should be certified to appropriate standards.

Respiratory protection:

A particulate filter respirator may be necessary until effective technical measures are installed. Protection provided by air-purifying respirators is limited. Use a self-contained breathing apparatus in cases of emergency spills, when exposure levels are unknown, or under any circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.

Hand protection:

Chemical resistant gloves should be used. Gloves should be certified to an appropriate standard. Gloves should have a minimum breakthrough time that is appropriate to the duration of exposure. The breakthrough time of gloves varies according to the thickness, material and manufacturer. Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough. Suitable material: nitrile rubber.

Eye protection:

Wear goggles - chemical resistant. Follow any site specific eye protection policies.

Skin and body protection:

Assess the exposure and select chemical resistant clothing based on the potential for contact and the permeation / penetration characteristics of the clothing material. Wash with soap and water after removing protective clothing. Decontaminate clothing before re-use, or use disposable equipment (suits, aprons, sleeves, boots, etc.) Wear as appropriate: Dust impervious protective suit.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous decomposition products:

Combustion or thermal decomposition will evolve toxic and irritant vapors.

Hazardous reactions: None known. Hazardous polymerisation does not occur. Stable under normal conditions.

Disposal considerations


Where possible recycling is preferred to disposal or incineration. It must undergo special treatment, e.g. at suitable disposal site, to comply with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging:

Dispose of as unused product.
