Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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


Remove from further exposure.  For those providing assistance, avoid exposure to yourself or others.  Use adequate respiratory protection.  If respiratory irritation, dizziness, nausea, or unconsciousness occurs, seek immediate medical assistance.  If breathing has stopped, assist ventilation with a mechanical device or use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.


Wash contact areas with soap and water.  Remove contaminated clothing.  Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.


Flush thoroughly with water.  If irritation occurs, get medical assistance.


Seek immediate medical attention.  Do not induce vomiting.


If ingested, material may be aspirated into the lungs and cause chemical pneumonitis.  Treat appropriately.

Fire-fighting measures


Appropriate Extinguishing Media:  Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) to extinguish flames.

Inappropriate Extinguishing Media:  Straight streams of water


Fire Fighting Instructions:  Evacuate area.  Prevent run-off from fire control or dilution from entering streams, sewers or drinking water supply.  Fire-fighters should use standard protective equipment and in enclosed spaces, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).   Use water spray to cool fire exposed surfaces and to protect personnel.  

Hazardous Combustion Products:   Oxides of carbon, Smoke, Fume, Incomplete combustion products

Accidental release measures


In the event of a spill or accidental release, notify relevant authorities in accordance with all applicable regulations.


Avoid contact with spilled material.  See Section 5 for fire fighting information.  See the Hazard Identification Section for Significant Hazards.  See Section 4 for First Aid Advice.  See Section 8 for Personal Protective Equipment.


Land Spill:  Stop leak if you can do so without risk.  Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers.  Recover by pumping or with suitable absorbent.

Water Spill:  Stop leak if you can do so without risk.  Warn other shipping.   Remove from the surface by skimming or with suitable absorbents.   Seek the advice of a specialist before using dispersants.

Water spill and land spill recommendations are based on the most likely spill scenario for this material; however, geographic conditions, wind, temperature, (and in the case of a water spill) wave and current direction and speed may greatly influence the appropriate action to be taken.  For this reason, local experts should be consulted.  Note:  Local regulations may prescribe or limit action to be taken.


Large Spills:  Dyke far ahead of liquid spill for later recovery and disposal.  Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas.

Handling and storage


Avoid contact with skin.  Use proper bonding and/or earthing procedures. Prevent small spills and leakage to avoid slip hazard.   Material can accumulate static charges which may cause an electrical spark (ignition source).

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection       No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required. In inadequately ventilated areas, where workplace limits are exceeded, where unpleasant odours exist or where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, use self-contained breathing apparatus or breathing apparatus with a type A filter or appropriate combined filter (e.g. where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, A-P2 or ABEK-P2), in compliance with EN 141.

Hand protection       The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other., Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time., Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).

gloves suitable for permanent contact:

Material: Fluorinated rubber

Break through time: >= 480 min

Material thickness: 0.4 mm

Material: Nitrile rubber/nitrile latex

Break through time: >= 480 min

Material thickness: 0.35 mm

gloves suitable for splash protection:

Material: Polychloroprene

Break through time: >= 240 min

Material thickness: 0.5 mm

unsuitable gloves

Material: Natural rubber/natural latex, butyl-rubber, Polyvinylchloride

Eye protection       Tightly fitting safety goggles

Protective measures       Avoid contact with eyes. Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.
