The substance as free oil: Normal fire-fighting equipment

(full bunker gear) and positive-pressure self-contained

breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Coated Paper: N/A

Coating: Isolate spill area. When cleaning spills, wear

appropriate personal protective equipment including

splash-proof safety goggles and chemical resistant gloves.

Confine and contain small spills using inert material. Scoop

up absorbed material and place in container for disposal.

In the event of a large spill contain by diking with dry

sand, sorbent booms, or other absorbentmaterial. Prevent

run-off into sewers, storm drains, surface waters, and soil.

Scoop up material for recovery, or, cover withinert

absorbent material, scoop up absorbed material and place in

a container for disposal in acordance with governmental


The substance as free oil:

Small spill - absorb spill with an inert material (e.g.

clay, dry sand or earth), and then place in chemical waste


Large spill - contain spilled liquid with sand and earth.

Transfer absorbed waste materials into drums.  Prevent

runoff entering into storm sewers and ditches, which lead to

natural waterways.

Handling and storage

Handling: (1) Coating: Avoid contact with skin and eyes.  Do not

breath vapour or mist.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Preconsumer waste paper is recycled at pulp and paper mills.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: For use of the substance at commercial mills for R&D work,

the mills will not land apply waste water treatment sludges

containing the solvent pending the review of the risk

assessment by the UK competent authority.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: 50% recovery rate for post consumer use carbonless copy


Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: 99% of the solvent removed in waste water treatment.
