Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:

Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately administer a corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler.

On skin contact:

Wash thoroughly with soap and water. Thaw out frostbites under cold liquid or water, do not rub affected parts of the body, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.

On contact with eyes:

Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:

Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

water spray, dry powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide

Specific hazards:

Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Special protective equipment:

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:

Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations. Cool endangered containers with water-spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid skin contact with leaking liquid (danger of frostbite!).

Environmental precautions:

Discharge into the environment must be avoided. Suppress gases/vapours/mists with water spray jet. Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:

Suppress gases/vapours/mists with water spray jet. Dilute with plenty of water.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Protect against moisture. Handle under dry inert gas. Protect against heat. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Refill and handle product only in closed system.

Protection against fire and explosion:

Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. Use non-sparking tools.


Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place. Protect against heat.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Self-contained breathing apparatus.


Hand protection:

Suitable materials for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN ISO 374-1)

butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.


Eye protection:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)


Body protection:

Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures

Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapour.


Stability and reactivity


Corrosion to metals:

No corrosive effect on metal.

Formation of flammable gases:

Forms no flammable gases in the presence of water.

Chemical stability:

The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:

Hazardous reactions in presence of mentioned substances to avoid. Strong exothermic reaction. Risk of polymerization.

Conditions to avoid:

Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.

Incompatible materials

Substances to avoid:

acids, alkalies, metal oxides, amines, metal salts

Disposal considerations

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.

Contaminated packaging:

Uncleaned empties should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
