Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water. Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment. If unwell, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

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

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: Combustion products may
contain carbon, nitrogen and sulfur oxides together with
hydrogen chloride gas, sodium and nickel compounds and some

Protective equipment: Protective equipment: Wear a self-contained breathing

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear protective clothing (cf 2.3.1). Sweep up spilt
material and place in labelled containers for disposal. For
solutions, absorb on suitable material and collect for
disposal as above. Dispose of waste by incineration or
landfill at controlled sites.

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions for handling organic
chemicals. Avoid contact with eyes and skin, wear safety
glasses and impermeable gloves. If the substance is to be
handled as a powder, avoid inhalation of dust, wear a dust
mask. Use handling equipment or local exhaust ventilation
as appropriate.

Storage: Store in sealed containers. Avoid residues on containers.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Other dangers: None reported. [UK c.a.: The substance is a
reactive dyestuff. Substances of this type have been known
to cause respiratory sensitisation. If sensitisation
occurs, remove from exposure and seek medical attention.

Chemical reaction with water: Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Disposal considerations

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

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None (French c.a. summary)

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a controlled landfill site is possible.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration at a controlled facility equipped with waste
gas treatment to remove nitrogen and sulfur oxides,
hydrogen chloride and metallic compounds.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Approximately 60% of the substance will be discharged in
waste water. Waste water may be purified by membrane
filtration or flocculation with cationic agents or
treatments with ozone. Membrane filtration is the most
efficient and 99% of the substance may be removed by this

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain except as
part of articles.
