First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If medical complaints appear like difficulty in breathing or

asthma while or after handling the reactive dyestuff or

especially after inhalation of dust seek medical advice

immediately.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Splashes in eyes should be rinsed out immediately with

plenty of clean water or eyewash solution, if necessary

obtain medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Splashes on skin should be removed by cleaning with plenty

of water and soap, use shower if necessary. Contamined

clothing must be removed.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: After ingestion of greater amounts give plenty of water to

drink. Cause vomiting or if necessary, irrigation of

stomach. Give Char-coal, obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, foam, dry powder, CO2. There is no restriction

in the choise of extinguishing agents. It depends entirely

on the scale of the fire and local conditions which

extinguishing agents have to be used.

Product arising from burning: Formation of CO2, CO, water, hydrogen chloride and hydrogen

fluoride, sulphur oxides and nitric oxides is possible.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Respiratory protection equipment and protective clothing

depending on the scale of the fire and local conditions.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Spilt product should be taken up mechanically, spilt

solutions should be taken up with absorbents, residuals

should be taken up with water and all the wastes should be

transfered to labelled waste containers. Inhalation of dust

and contact with skin must be avoided. Cleaning staff must

follow the precautions listed in 2.3.1. Disposal resp.

destruction according to existing environmental legislation

and applicable local regulations (incineration).

Handling and storage

Handling: The product should be handled with good hygiene precautions.

Suitable protective glasses, clothing and gloves are

recommended. Avoid dust formation. Keep away from food and

drink. Use dust-proof filling/refilling systems.

The new dyestuff will be marketed in a non-dusting

formulation. Do not breathe dust or aerosols. Provide

effective ventilation. If necessary, use particle filters

(dustmasks P 2). Persons with chronic illness of the

respiratory tracts should avoid reactive dyestuffs. Persons

with sensitization to reactive dyestuffs must avoid all

contacts with reactive dyestuffs.

Storage: Store in a dry place at room temperature. Store in tightly

closed containers.

Storage rooms should be treated with common hygiene

precautions. Opened containers should be tightly closed

after use. Avoid substance residues on the containers.

Remarks:
Transport: The product is not a dangerous cargo. The product can be
transported without special risk, provided the precautions
normally taken in the transportation of similar products are
applied. This also includes suitable unbreakable packaging
also with respect to stack height, protection against
falling and proper labelling. The new dyestuff is nearly
odorless. Protect against moisture, keep away from food and
drink.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: According to the test results and the experience made with

comparable substances no other hazards are likely.

Chemical reaction with water: Hydroysis of the reactive group, especially in the heat and

the presence of alkali.

Disposal considerations

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

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: If used as intended there is no danger.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Dumping on waste disposal sites, which are insulated to

prevent percolation of liquids into the ground, is possible

if in accordance with local, state or national legislation.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The incineration of dry dyestuffs is possible. Burning leads

to the formation of acidic waste gases, which are common for

dyestuffs resp. organic compounds of this kind, containing

nitrogen, halogens and sulphur. Incineration should be

performed under carefully controlled conditions, ideally by

using an industrial unit specifically designed for chemical

incineration with exhaust gas scrubbing.

Dye containing waste liquours generally are too much diluted

for incineration. But it can be recommended to spray such

liquors onto normal domestic garbage for common

incineration.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Organic dyestuffs in waste water are not biologically

degradable under aerobic conditions if there is only a short

treatment time. In biological waste water treatment plants,

however, they can be largely eliminated with the sludge due

to adsorption and precipitation.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The new chemical when used as intended will not enter the

public domain.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: see 6.2.1

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: see 6.2.1

The dyed products which contain small amounts of the test

substance can be discharged with the normal domestic garbage

on waste disposal sites or favourably by incineration.
