Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

General advice:

Remove victims from the danger zone without endangering your own safety.

Remove contaminated or soaked clothing (including underwear and shoes) immediately.

If inhaled:

Bring accident victims out into the fresh air. If patient has difficulty in breathing,

administer oxygen, keep the patient calm and warm. Call a physician immediately.

In case of skin contact:

After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of soap and

water. Apply protective bandage with sterile gauze. Call a physician immediately.

In case of eye contact:

Hold the eyes open and rinse with preferably lukewarm water for a

sufficiently long period of time (at least 10 minutes). Contact an ophthalmologist.

If swallowed:

If product is swallowed DO NOT induce the patient to vomit, medical advice is

required. Make patient drink water and rinse out mouth several times (only if injured person is


Therapeutic measures:

Basic first aid, decontamination, symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam, extinguishing powder, in cases of

larger fires, water spray should be used.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:

High volume water jet

Burning releases carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and traces of hydrogen

cyanide. In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

During fire-fighting respirator with independent air-supply and airtight garment is required.

Fight fire in early stages if safe to do so. Containers at risk from fire should be cooled with water

and, if possible, removed from the danger area. Do not allow contaminated extinguishing water

to enter the soil, ground-water or surface waters.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Put on protective equipment. Keep away from sources of ignition.

Ensure adequate ventilation/exhaust extraction. Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environmental precautions:

Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods for cleaning up:

Take up with absorbent for chemicals or, if necessary with dry sand.

Fill into labeled, sealable containers. Also place used cleaning materials into closable


Handling and storage


Handle in closed, grounded apparatus. Ensure proper ventilation and including at floor level.

Make sure all pipelines, tanks and equipment are leakproof.

Organize work procedures so that workers are not exposed to the effects of the products. Vent

waste air only via suitable separators or scrubbers.

Explosion protection required. Precautions should generally be taken against electrostatic

charges according to the equipment used and the way the product is handled and packaged.

The personal protective measures described below must be observed. Contact with skin

and eyes and inhalation of vapors must be avoided under all circumstances.


Keep container dry and tightly closed in a cool and well ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Apply technical measures to comply with the occupational exposure limits.

For technical protective measures to limit exposure see also "Handling and storage".

Respiratory protection:

If vapors form, respirators must be used. Put on full-mask respirator with filter type ABEK.

At higher concentrations or under uncertain conditions a respirator with independent air supply must be used.

Hand protection:

Suitable materials for safety gloves; DIN EN 374-3:

Butyl rubber - IIR: thickness >=0,5mm; breakthrough time >=480min.

Fluorinated rubber - FKM: thickness >=0,4mm; breakthrough time >=480min.

Recommendation: contaminated gloves should be disposed of.

Unsuitable materials for protective gloves; DIN EN 374-3:

natural rubber - NR: thickness >=0,5mm

Polychloroprene - CR: thickness >=0,5mm

nitrile rubber - NBR (>= 0.35 mm)

polyvinyl chloride - PVC (>= 0.5 mm)

Eye protection:

Wear eye/face protection.

Skin and body protection:

Impervious protective clothing. On possible contact with the product (sampling, product leakage): full protection or chemical protection clothing.

Hygiene measures:

Careful attention to industrial and personal hygiene is essential. Keep away from foodstuffs, drinks and tobacco. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. Keep working clothes separately. Change contaminated or soaked clothing immediately. If the suit becomes

contaminated, first take a shower with the suit on.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous reactions:

No hazardous reactions when used as directed.

Hazardous decomposition products:

No hazardous decomposition products when stored and

handled correctly.

Thermal decomposition:

No thermal decomposition when stored and handled correctly.

Materials to avoid:

Keep away from acids and oxidizing agents.

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with applicable international, national and local laws, ordinances and statutes. For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste

Catalogue (EWC) should be used.

After containers have been emptied as thoroughly as possible (e.g. by pouring, scraping or

draining until "drip-dry"), they can be sent to an appropriate collection point set up within the

framework of the existing take-back scheme of the chemical industry. Containers must be

recycled in compliance with national legislation and environmental regulations.
