Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

INHALATION: If adverse effects occur, remove to uncontaminated area. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. Get immediate medical attention.

SKIN CONTACT: For thermal burns, cool affected areas as quickly as possible by drenching or immersing in water. Remove clothing which does not adhere to the body - get medical attention; if possible continue rinsing until medical treatment is received. When material is not at an elevated temperature: wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes, or use a waterless handcleaner, whilst removing contaminated clothing and shoes.

Get immediate medical attention, if needed.

EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Then get immediate medical attention. If burns occur, treat as thermal burns.

INGESTION: DO NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hips to help prevent aspiration. Do not give anything by mouth to unconscious or convulsive person. Get medical attention, if needed.

Fire-fighting measures

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: During fire conditions, vapours and decomposition products may be released, forming flammable/explosive mixtures in air.

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: regular dry powder, regular foam, carbon dioxide, water mist.

FIRE FIGHTING: Move container from fire area if it can be done without risk. Cool containers with water spray until well after the fire is out. Do not use water jets. Directly spraying water or foam onto hot burning product may cause frothing. Avoid inhalation of material or combustion by-products. Stay upwind and keep out of low areas. Treat contaminated water prior to discharge.


HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Thermal decomposition or combustion products: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons.

Accidental release measures


Stop leak if possible without personal risk. Absorb with sand or other non-combustible material. If material is at an elevated temperature, use sand or earth to make a barrier whilst material solidifies. Collect spilled material in appropriate container for disposal. Keep out of water supplies and storm drains. Contact authorities in the event of pollution of soil and aquatic environment or discharge into drains.

Handling and storage

STORAGE: Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Keep separated from incompatible substances. Label all containers.

HANDLING: Use only with adequate ventilation. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water, or a waterless handcleaner, after skin contact and before eating, drinking, using tobacco products, or toilets.

VENTILATION: Ensure adequate ventilation. A local or process enclosure ventilation system may be necessary. If ventilation cannot reduce airborne concentrations below acceptable limits, appropriate respiratory protection should be used. Ensure compliance with applicable exposure limits.

EYE PROTECTION: Wear appropriate splash resistant eye protection if contact is possible. At elevated temperatures: A face-shield is recommended. Provide eye wash bottles in the immediate work area.

CLOTHING: Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing. At elevated temperatures: Wear appropriate heat resistant clothing. Contaminated clothing should be removed and laundered before reuse. Unusual skin conditions should be reported. Regular medical examinations should be performed.

GLOVES: Wear appropriate chemical resistant gloves. At elevated temperatures: Wear appropriate heat resistant gloves.

PROTECTIVE MATERIAL TYPES: polyethylene/ethylene vinyl alcohol laminate, heat resistant material.

RESPIRATOR: Individuals at risk to inhalation of dust and vapours must use a respirator which conforms to EN140, with Type A2-P2 filter.

Stability and reactivity

REACTIVITY: Stable at normal temperatures and pressure.

CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Avoid heat, flames, sparks and other sources of ignition. Containers may rupture or explode if exposed to heat.

INCOMPATIBILITIES: oxidising materials.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION: Thermal decomposition or combustion products: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons.

POLYMERISATION: Will not polymerise.

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations. Carcinogenic waste products should be clearly labelled and stored securely until such time as they are removed by a competent specialist contractor, or are disposed of safely on site by incineration or in another way that does not accentuate

the risk to other workers or outside environment. EWC-codes: 050199, 050699 (waste from petroleum refining, other non-specified waste) (waste

from pyrolysis of coal, other non-specified waste).
