Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of first-aid measures

If inhaled:       

If overcome by exposure, remove victim to fresh air immediately.

Call a physician. Give artificial respiration if not breathing.

In case of skin contact:

Remove contaminated clothing and wash skin with plenty of soap and water.

In case of eye contact:

Not expected to present a significant eye contact hazard under anticipated conditions of normal use.

Flush eyes thoroughly with water for several minutes and seek medical attention if discomfort persists.

If swallowed:

Ingestion unlikely. However, if ingested, obtain emergency medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed


Not expected to present a significant inhalation hazard under anticipated conditions of normal use.

Not expected to present a significant skin hazard under anticipated conditions of normal use.


Treat symptomatically.

Do NOT induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

SMALL FIRE: Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray or regular foam. LARGE FIRE: Use water spray, water fog or regular foam. Do not use straight streams.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:

Do not use solid water stream/may spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during fire fighting:

Heat from fire can generate flammable vapor.

Vapors may be heavier than air.

Fine sprays/mists may be combustible at temperatures below normal flash point.

Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk.

Fight fire from maximum distance or use unmanned hose holders or monitor  nozzles.

Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire  is out.

Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank.

Always stay away from tanks engulfed in fire.

For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn.

Precautions for fire-fighters

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:

Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Structural firefighters protective clothing will only provide limited protection.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions:

Use personal protective equipment.

Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Eliminate all sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions:

If necessary, all contaminated waste water must be treated in a municipal or industrial wastewater treatment plant before release to surface water.

Chemical removal by air and water pollution control devices must meet the minimum efficiency requirements needed to reduce exposures to an acceptable level.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up:

Eliminate all sources of ignition.

All equipment used when handling this product must be grounded.

Do not touch or walk through spilled material.

Stop leak if you can do it without risk.

Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas.

A vapor suppressing foam may be used to reduce vapors.

Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers.

Use clean non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material.

Dike large spills and place materials in salvage containers.

Water spray may reduce vapor; but may not prevent ignition in closed spaces.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling:

Handle with care.

Keep container tightly closed when not in use.

If desired, the material may be warmed (25 - 30ºC/77 - 86ºF) to enhance the products flow.

Use caution if applying heat  localized overheating may cause possible product degradation and over-pressurize containers.

Empty containers should be thoroughly rinsed with copious amounts of clean water.

The rinse water can be used for makeup water for any necessary dilution of the concentrated product before use, or it can be properly discarded.

Isolate, vent, drain, wash and purge systems or equipment before maintenance or repair.

Fire-fighting class:


Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers:

If desired, store in a warm location (25 - 30ºC/77 - 86ºF) to assist in emptying containers.

Keep floor around container free of spilled product to prevent highly viscous material from sticking to and contaminating shoes.
