First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Symptomatic
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and plenty of water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam, carbon dioxide and dry powder may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,
nitrogen and sulfur together with hydrogen chloride gas,
copper containing compounds and metal oxide smoke.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1).

Avoid dust formation. Absorb spillage of solution with a
suitable inert material (eg sand or soil).

Transfer to labelled containers or use an approved
industrial vacuum. Dispose of by incineration or at a
landfill site in accordance with local regulations. Wash
spill site with water.

Waste water must be chemically or physically treated before
discharge to waste water treatment plants. (see 6.1.3)

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions for handling organic
chemicals. Ensure adequate ventilation. Protective clothing
(eg an impervious apron), chemical resistant gloves, safety
goggles and a dust mask (type EN 149 FFP1) should be worn.

Storage: Store in tightly closed containers at ambient temperatures.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance is packaged in a paper carton containing 20kg.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Respiratory sensitisation has been reported with some
reactive dyestuffs and care should be taken to avoid
inhalation of dust.

There is no evidence to date to suggest that respiratory
sensitisation occurs with this substance.

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is not feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Spillages of solutions mixed with inert material (eg. sand
or soil) may be disposed of at a landfill site in accordance
with local regulations. (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration at a
suitable facility. Waste gas treatment to remove oxides of
nitrogen and sulfur, hydrogen chloride gas, copper
containing compounds and metal oxide smoke should be fitted.


Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Waste water from dyeing operations may be decolourised by
treating with an oxidising agent or ozone before discharge
to a waste water treatment plant system. Alternatively, the
substance may be removed from waste water by adsorption on
activated carbon followed by incineration of the solids

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will only enter the public domain in the form
of dyed articles which may be disposed of as domestic waste.
