Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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: Remove victim to fresh air at once. Initiate artificial

respiration and supply oxygen if needed. Keep victim warm

and at rest. Seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush the eyes with copious amounts of clean, lukewarm or

cold water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Hold

the victims eyelids open and pour water     slowly over the

eyeball(s) at the inner corner, letting     water run out of

the outer corner to rinse the substance out of the eye.

Seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Remove occasional drops of epoxy product from skin with soft

paper napkin followed by careful skin wash with warm water

and soap. Apply fat creams based on lanoline, vaseline or

castrol. Strongly smeared hands should, prior to washing, be

cleaned with a piece of cloth moistened with ethyl alcohol,

acetone or ethyl cellosolve. Obtain medical attention if


Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical

personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious

person. If conscious give plenty of water to drink. Loosen

tight clothing. Keep victim warm and quiet. Seek medical


Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use foam, sand, water spray, carbon dioxide or dry powder


Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a

fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg oxides of carbon).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity. Eliminate all

sources of ignition.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to

the relevant national or international standards as

mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike

if necessary. Absorb spillages with a suitable inert

material (eg sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage

to waste containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum

machine. Containers filled with waste material must be

labelled in the same way as the original containers.

Dispose of waste material by incineration or landfill in

accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166

Chemical protective boots.

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be

used. e.g. organic vapour mask or self-contained breathing


The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a


On charging and discharging regulations concerning static

electricity should be strictly observed. Production rooms

should be provided with ventilation equipment with local

exhausts. Do not eat or drink in rooms where resin is used.

Explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting devices

should be used.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, away from

sources of ignition.

Keep in sealed epoxy resin resistant metal or plastic

containers. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Resistant metal or plastic containers. Hermetic metallic

barrels (200 litres) and plastic canisters (5 litres).

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be kept to a minimum.

Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not

economically or technically feasible, and such waste

material will be disposed of in accordance with local

regulations. In principle, it may be possible to recover

larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent


Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with

inert material (eg sand or soil) may be disposed of by

landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local


Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning

under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg oxides of

carbon) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to

the sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.
