Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Administrative data

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air, if concerned seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse open eye for several minutes with running water. Seek

medical advice if concerned.

Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing and launder before re-use. Wash

immediately with soap and water. If irritation persists or

develops, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use fire-fighting measures sitable for the environment.(dry

chemical, carbon dioxide, foam or water spray)

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

fire, envolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen

oxides). However, there is no experimental evidence to

support the anticipated combustion products.

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.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to

the relevant national or international standards as

mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Collect mechanically - products forms slippery surface when

mixed with water.  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


When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be

used eg a dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a


Storage: Store in a cool, dry well-ventilated area. Keep containers

tightly closed when not in use. Store away from heat,

electrical equipment, sparks and open flame.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Fibre box/drums - 5-50 kg

Metal drums - 100kg

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal.  Recovery from

minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically

or technically feasible, and such waste material will be

disposed of by incineration or landfill.  In principle, it

may be possible to recover larger spillages of

uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is not

considered hazardous to health or the environment.

The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate storage and

handling techniques.

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 carbon and

nitrogen oxides) 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.   However,

adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be


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