First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air, symptomatic treatment. In case
of indisposition, seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water. If irritation occurs, seek
medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment. In case of indisposition, seek
medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

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

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,
nitrogen and sulfur together with sodium and lithium

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

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

For dry residues sweep up spill, transfer to suitable
containers. For spillage of dye solution absorb with an
inert material.

Dispose of both by incineration in accordance with local

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions for handling organic
chemicals. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with
skin and eyes. Impermeable gloves and safety goggles should
be worn. Avoid dust formation, wear a dust mask and use
dust-proof filling apparatus where appropriate.

Storage: Store in tightly closed, unbreakable containers (eg in
polyethylene bags in sealed steel drums) away from

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Normal application results in consumption of 90% by
irreversible binding to textiles.

Recovery for recycling is therefore not practical.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method at a suitable facility, using
temperatures in excess of 1200 deg C.

Waste gas treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen and sulfur
and sodium and lithium compounds should be fitted


Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Approximately 10% of the total quantity used is dicharged
into industrial effluents as a highly diluted solution. The
waste water can be purified by membrane filtration or by
floculation with cationic agents or by treatment with ozone.
Membrane filtration is the most effective method removing
more than 99% of the dyestuff.


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 normal domestic
