Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 patient to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes.

Seek medical advice if irritation persists.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam, and carbon dioxide may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,
nitrogen and sulfur, together with some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and a self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1). Remove
sources of ignition and take precautions against static
discharge. Avoid dust formation, damp down spill with water.
Absorb spill using a suitable inert material (eg sand or
soil). Transfer to labelled containers or use a sealed
industrial vacuum machine.

Dispose of at a landfill site or by incineration in
accordance with local regulations.

Do not allow waste to enter water courses.

Handling and storage

Handling: Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid skin contact. Anti-static

overall, safety footwear, respiratory equipment should be
worn. Protective equipment should conform to national

Storage: Store in static-conductive plastic bags, inside sealed,
static-conductive, plastic "Mauser" kegs, below 10 deg C.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Keep away from sources of ignition and take precautions
against static discharges.

Avoid creating airborne dust.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Static-conductive plastics bags inside sealed, static-
conductive, plastic "Mauser" kegs.

Special provisions / remarks
Transport: The substance is a possible UN class 1 explosive.

It should only be transported in its inert form. The
substance is inert if mixed with diatomaceous earth (>=35%).

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported.

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion: The dust can form easily ignited, strongly explosive
mixtures in air.

Dust explosion determined by test: Y

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is not feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known for hazardous health or environmental properties.

The dust hazard can be minimised by adding flux-calcined
diatomaceous earth to the aqueous reaction mixture
immediately prior to its isolation by centrifugation and
subsequent fluid-bed drying. The addition of this material
has also been shown to reduce explosivity.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The substance, mixed with inert material (eg. sand or soil),
may be disposed of by landfill at an authorised tip in
accordance with local regulations. (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration. Waste gas
treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen and sulfur should be
fitted. (A661)

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: The substance, will not enter the public domain.
