Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

1.  Description of first aid measures

-  Protection of first-aiders. First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended protective clothing (chemical resistant gloves, splash protection). If potential for exposure exists refer to Section 8 of SDS for specific personal protective equipment.

- If inhaled Move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician.

- In case of skin contact Wash off with plenty of water.

- If swallowed Do not induce vomiting. Give one cup (8 ounces or 240 ml) of water or milk if available and transport to a medical facility. Do not give anything by mouth unless the person is fully conscious.

2.  Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

- Notes to physician Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient. No specific antidote. Due to irritant properties, swallowing may result in burns/ulceration of mouth, stomach and lower gastrointestinal tract with subsequent stricture. Aspiration of vomitus may cause lung injury. Suggest endotracheal/esophageal control if lavage is done. Chemical eye burns may require extended irrigation. Obtain prompt consultation, preferably from an ophthalmologist.

3.  Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: none known.

Fire-fighting measures

1. Suitable extinguishing media

Water fog or fine spray.  Dry chemical fire extinguishers.  Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers.  Foam.  Alcohol resistant foams (ATC type) are preferred. General purpose synthetic foams (including AFFF) or protein foams may function, but will be less effective.  

2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

- Special hazards during firefighting: none known

- Hazardous Combustion Products: during a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating.  Combustion products may include and are not limited to:  Nitrogen oxides.  Carbon monoxide.  Carbon dioxide.  

3. Advice for firefighters

-  Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves). Avoid contact with this material during fire fighting operations. If contact is likely, change to full chemical resistant fire fighting clothing with self-contained breathing apparatus. If this is not available, wear full chemical resistant clothing with selfcontained

breathing apparatus and fight fire from a remote location. For protective equipment in post-fire or non-fire clean-up situations, refer to the relevant sections.

- Further information Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry. Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect personnel and minimize property damage. Burning liquids may be extinguished by dilution with water.

Accidental release measures

1. Personal precautions

- Keep personnel out of low areas. Keep upwind of spill. Ventilate area of leak or spill.No smoking in area.

- Only trained and properly protected personnel must be involved in clean-up operations.

- Evacuate area. Use appropriate safety equipment.

- For additional information, refer to Section 8 of SDS, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection. Refer to section 7 of SDS, Handling, for additional precautionary measures.

2. Environmental precautions

- Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater. See Section 12, Ecological Information.

3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

- Contain spilled material if possible. Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers.

- See Section 13 of SDS, Disposal Considerations, for additional information.

Handling and storage


1. Advice on safe handling

- Spills of these organic materials on hot fibrous insulations may lead to lowering of the autoignition temperatures possibly resulting in spontaneous combustion. Containers, even those that have been emptied, can contain vapors. Do not cut, drill, grind, weld, or perform similar operations on or near empty containers.

- Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not swallow. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Use with adequate ventilation. Keep container closed. Do not get in eyes. Avoid contact with skin and clothing. See Section 8 of SDS, EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION.

2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

-  Requirements for storage areas and containers: Do not store in: Zinc. Galvanized containers. Aluminum.Copper. Copper alloys.

Exposure controls / personal protection


1. Engineering measures

- Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary for some operations. Use local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below exposure limit requirements or guidelines. If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, general ventilation should be sufficient for most operations.

2. Personal protective equipment

- Eye protection: use chemical goggles.

- Skin and body protection: use protective clothing chemically resistant to this material. Selection of specific items such as face shield, boots, apron, or full body suit will depend on the task.

- Respiratory protection should be worn when there is a potential to exceed the exposure limit requirements or guidelines. If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, wear respiratory protection when adverse effects, such as respiratory irritation or discomfort have been experienced, or where indicated by your risk assessment process. In misty atmospheres, use an approved particulate respirator. The following should be effective types of air-purifying respirators: Organic vapor cartridge with a particulate pre-filter, type AP2.

- Hand protection: use gloves chemically resistant to this material. Examples of preferred glove barrier materials include: Polyethylene. Chlorinated polyethylene. Ethyl vinyl alcohol laminate ("EVAL"). Examples of acceptable glove barrier materials include: Viton. Butyl rubber. Neoprene. Natural rubber ("latex"). Polyvinyl chloride ("PVC" or "vinyl"). Nitrile/butadiene rubber ("nitrile" or "NBR"). Avoid gloves made of: Polyvinyl alcohol ("PVA"). NOTICE: The selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace should also take into account all relevant workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which may be handled, physical requirements (cut/puncture protection, dexterity, thermal protection), potential body reactions to glove materials, as well as the instructions/specifications provided by the glove supplier.

Stability and reactivity


1. Reactivity: no dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

2. Chemical stability: stable under recommended storage conditions. See Storage, Section 7 of SDS.

3. Possibility of hazardous reactions: polymerization will not occur.

4. Conditions to avoid: exposure to elevated temperatures can cause product to decompose

5. Incompatible materials:

- Avoid contact with: Strong acids. Strong oxidizers. Nitrites.

- Avoid contact with metals such as: Zinc. Galvanized metals. Copper alloys. Aluminum. Copper.

- Avoid unintended contact with: Halogenated hydrocarbons.

6. Hazardous decomposition products

- Decomposition products depend upon temperature, air supply and the presence of other materials.

Disposal considerations


1.  Waste treatment methods

- This product, when being disposed of in its unused and uncontaminated state should be treated as a hazardous waste according to EC Directive 2008/98/EC. Any disposal practices must be in compliance with all national and provincial laws and any municipal or local by-laws governing hazardous waste.

- For used, contaminated and residual materials additional evaluations may be required.

- Do not dump into any sewers, on the ground, or into any body of water.
