Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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: If dust is inhaled, move subject to an area of fresh air,

loosen clothing and rest.  If signs of distress or

discomfort, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.  If

signs of dscomfort, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected areas with soap and water.  Remove any

contaminated clothing and wash with detergents before

re-use.  If signs of discomfort, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Rinse mouth and drink plenty of milk of water.  Vomiting may

be induced under medical supervision.  Seek medical advice

if signs of ill health or discomfort.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water foam, chemical foam, carbon dioxide and chemical

powder extinguishing agents may be used.  There is no known

adverse reaction with any normal extinguishing agents.

Product arising from burning: Carbon dioxide is the ultimate product in the presence of

adequate oxygen, although partial combustion may lead to the

production of volatile carbon/nitrogen componds and carbon

monoxide.  Chlorine and sulphate salts are expected products

of combustion.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: No special equipment considered to be necessary other than

standard equipment recommended for chemical fires. If water

is to be used, care must be taken to avoid run-off into

surface water.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Sweep up and collect in a suitably labelled container and

dispose of as chemical waste.  Avoid the generation of dust.

The area may be flushed with water, avoiding run-off into

water courses or drainage systems other than those leading

to treatment facilities.

Safety precautions as recomended in section 2.3.00 should be


Handling and storage

Handling: Precautions should be taken against inhalation of any dust

formed to include dust mask and LEV as appropriate.

Otherwise, neoprene or other suitable gloves, coveralls and

goggles should be worn.

As with all organic powders, precautions should be taken

against dust explosion, such as ensuring that all equipment

is suitably earthed and that there is no source of ignition

when being handled.

Storage: Store dry under ambient conditions.  No special precautions.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Packaged in a variety of plastic lined fibre drums, up to a

maximum 100 kg.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: No known reactivity leading to hazardous products.

Chemical reaction with water: No reactivity with water leading to hazardous products.

However, the substance is thought to at least partially

hydrolyse in water.

Dust explosion: As with many organic powders, the risk of explosion

following ignition of the dust under certain circumstances

cannot be ignored.  Precautions should be taken to avoid the

generation of build-up of dust and to ensure that there are

no sources of ignition.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is consumed during use and cannot be recycled.

Spilled or contaminated material cannot be re-used and must

be disposed of.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Residues may be safely disposed by this method if dilution

factors indicate that there is no direct risk to organisms.

Otherwise, there should be no discharge to the environment.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None recommended.  Landfill may be appropriate for low-level

waste such as used packaging or contaminated sludge from the


Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable to the general public.
