Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15

minutes and seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Remove any contaminated clothing and wash the affected area

with soap and plenty of water. Seek medical attention if

there is any adverse skin reaction.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Recommended extinguishing agents: Carbon dioxide, dry

agents and foam are suitable.

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: Products of combustion may

contain oxides of carbon and nitrogen together with some


Protective equipment: Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus

and full protective clothing are recommended.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from the immediate vicinity. Wear

suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1). Avoid dust

formation by dampening down spilled powder with water.

Absorb spillages with a suitable material eg. sand or soil.

Transfer to labelled waste containers or use an approved

sealed industrial vacuum machine. Clean the affected area

with detergent and water, avoiding discharge to

watercourses. Dispose of waste material in accordance with

local regulations by either landfill or incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity

with any local regulations to avoid contact with eyes, skin

and ingestion or inhalation of the substance. Engineering

controls should be used to reduce exposure to the

substance. If exposure cannot be adequately controlled, the

use of eye protection (eg. goggles), chemical resistant

gloves and an impervious apron is recommended. A dust mask

conforming to prEN 149, FFP Grade 2 would be suitable.

Storage: Store in tightly closed containers.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from minor spillages or discharge is not

economically nor technically feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers and waste material may be disposed

of by landfill at an approved site.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Disposal at an authorised facility under controlled

conditions is possible. Waste gas treatment to remove

nitrogen oxides should be fitted.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should normally be discharged to sewage

systems or the aqueous environment. However, the substance

is not expected to show any adverse effects on sewage

treatment systems if accidently discharged by this route.

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

paper can be disposed of as domestic waste.
