Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Eye Contact: Wash immediately and continuously with flowing water for at least 30 minutes.  Remove contact lenses after the first 5 minutes and continue washing. Obtain prompt medical consultation, preferably from an ophthalmologist.  

Skin Contact: Wash skin with plenty of water.  

Inhalation: Move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician.  

Ingestion: 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.  Seek medical attention immediately.  

Notes to Physician: Chemical eye burns may require extended irrigation.  Obtain prompt consultation, preferably from an ophthalmologist.  If burn is present, treat as any thermal burn, after decontamination.  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.  No specific antidote.  Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.  

Emergency Personnel Protection: 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 "Exposure controls / personal protection" for specific personal protective equipment.

Fire-fighting measures

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.  

Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep people away.  Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry.  Burning liquids may be extinguished by dilution with water.  Do not use direct water stream.  May spread fire.  Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect personnel and minimize property damage.  

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 self-contained breathing apparatus and fight fire from a remote location.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Violent steam generation or eruption may occur upon application of direct water stream to hot liquids.  

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.

Accidental release measures

Steps to be Taken if Material is Released or Spilled: Contain spilled material if possible.  Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers.

Personal Precautions: Evacuate area.  No smoking in area.  Ventilate area of leak or spill.  Only trained and properly protected personnel must be involved in clean-up operations. Use appropriate safety equipment.

Environmental Precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater.

Handling and storage

Handling :general Handling: Do not get in eyes.  Avoid breathing vapor or mist.  Do not swallow.  Avoid contact with skin and clothing.  Keep away from heat, sparks and flame.  Keep container closed.  Use with adequate ventilation.  Wash thoroughly after handling.  

Other Precautions: 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.  Spills of these organic materials on hot fibrous insulations may lead to lowering of the autoignition temperatures possibly resulting in spontaneous combustion.  

Storage: store in a dry place.  Store in original unopened container.  Do not store in:  Aluminum.  Brass.  Copper.  Zinc.  Copper alloys.  Galvanized containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure Limits: none established

Personal Protection:

    * Eye/Face Protection: Use chemical goggles.  Chemical goggles should be consistent with EN 166 or equivalent.  Eye wash fountain should be locat       ed in immediate work area.  If exposure causes eye discomfort, use a full-face respirator.  

    * Skin Protection: Use protective clothing chemically resistant to this material.  Selection of specific items such as face shield, boots, apron, or full b       ody suit will depend on the task.  

    * Hand protection: Use chemical resistant gloves classified under Standard EN374: Protective gloves against chemicals and micro-organisms.  Exa         mples of preferred glove barrier materials include:  Chlorinated polyethylene.  Polyethylene.  Ethyl vinyl alcohol laminate ("EVAL").  Examples of acc       eptable glove barrier materials include:  Butyl rubber.  Natural rubber ("latex").  Neoprene.  Nitrile/butadiene rubber ("nitrile" or "NBR").  Polyvinyl c

      hloride ("PVC" or "vinyl").  Viton.  Avoid gloves made of:  Polyvinyl alcohol ("PVA").  When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a gl        ove with a protection class of 4 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 120 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended.  When only brief c        ontact is expected, a glove with a protection class of 1 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 10 minutes according to EN 374) is recommend         ed. NOTICE: The selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace should also take into account all relev         ant workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which may be handled, physical requirements (cut/puncture protection, dexter        ity, thermal protection), potential body reactions to glove materials, as well as the instructions/specifications provided by the glove supplier.  

    * Respiratory Protection: 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 irritati        on or discomfort have been experienced, or where indicated by your risk assessment process.  For most conditions, no respiratory protection sh        ould be needed; however, if material is heated or sprayed, use an approved air-purifying respirator.  Use the following CE approved air-purifying         respirator:  Organic vapor cartridge with a particulate pre-filter, type AP2.  

    * Ingestion: Avoid ingestion of even very small amounts; do not consume or store food or tobacco in the work area; wash hands and face before s          moking or eating.

Engineering Controls

Ventilation: 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.  Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary for some operations.
