Registration Dossier

Data platform availability banner - registered substances factsheets

Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Inhalation:  If symptomatic, move to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.

Eyes:  Any material that contacts the eye should be washed out immediately with water. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.  Skin:   Wash with soap and water.  Get medical attention if symptoms occur.    

Ingestion:  Seek medical advice.  

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam

Special Fire-Fighting Procedures:   Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing.  

Hazardous Combustion Products:   carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide  

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  none

Accidental release measures

Absorb spill with vermiculite or other inert material, then place in a container for chemical waste.

For Large Spills: Flush spill area with water spray. Prevent runoff from entering drains, sewers, or streams. Dike for later disposal.

Handling and storage

Personal Precautionary Measures: No special precautionary health measures should be needed under anticipated conditions of use.

Prevention of Fire and Explosion: Keep from contact with oxidizing materials.

Storage: Keep container closed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Ventilation:   Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions.  Supplementary local exhaust ventilation, closed systems, or respiratory and eye protection may be needed in special circumstances; such as poorly ventilated spaces, heating, evaporation of liquids from large surfaces, spraying of mists, mechanical generation of dusts, drying of solids, etc.    

Respiratory Protection:   If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn. In the United States of America, if respirators are used, a program should be instituted to assure compliance with OSHA Standard 63 FR 1152, January 8, 1998. Respirator type: Air-purifying respirator with an appropriate, government approved (where applicable), air-purifying filter, cartridge or canister.  Contact health and safety professional or manufacturer for specific information.    

Eye Protection:   It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize eye contact.

Skin Protection:  It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize skin contact.

Recommended Decontamination Facilities: eye bath, washing facilities

Stability and reactivity

Stability:       Stable; however, material can decompose at elevated temperatures.  

Incompatibility:       Material reacts with strong oxidizing agents.  

Hazardous Polymerization:       Will not occur.  

Disposal considerations

Discharge, treatment, or disposal may be subject to national, state, or local laws. Incinerate.
