Data platform availability banner - registered substances factsheets

Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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: Move person to fresh air. Get medical attention as soon as


Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with large amounts of water. Get immediate

medical attention if irritation occurs.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash immediately with water. Remove contaminated clothing.

Get medical attention if irritation develops. Wash clothing

before reuse.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Administer water. Get IMMEDIATE medical attention. DO NOT

INDUCE VOMITING. Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use dry chemicals, halon, foam, carbon dioxide or


Product arising from burning: The material, when heated, may decompose evolving hydrogen

chloride, hydrogen fluoride and organic halides.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and full

protective equipment.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Keep open flames and sparks away. Contain release or spill

by dyke to prevent flow to sewers or streams. Pump into

metal containers for disposal or reclamation. Soak up small

spills with absorbent material and place in loosely-covered

containers for disposal. Neutralise spill with soda ash then

wash down area with water.

Handling and storage

Handling: Provide good room ventilation to minimise exposure. Use an

approved organic vapour acid-gas type canister. Wear safety

glasses. Eye wash facilities should be in close proximity.

Storage: Keep containers tightly sealed. Store in a cool place out of

contact with sources of ignition and oxidisers. Dyke bulk

storage tank separately to contain 110% of tank volume. Seal

bulk storage vessels to protect against the entry of

atmospheric moisture. Earth equipment to avoid static


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

Danger other than fire: Reacts with oxidising agents, concentrated sulphuric acid

and concentrated sodium hydroxide.

Chemical reaction with water: No reaction with water.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery of the substance from minor spillages or accidental

discharges to effluent is not possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Substance may be neutralised with soda ash.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: On dilution to a concentration of 0.4 mg/l or lower it is

possible to discharge the substance to water courses.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Burning under carefully controlled conditions will render

the substance harmless. Hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride

and organic halides may be formed and should be removed from

the effluent gas.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The possibility for adverse effects is on either aerobic or

anaerobic processes at sewage works is not known. It is

unlikely to be removed by sorption on to sludge.

Accumulation is unlikely as the substance is very volatile.

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