Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

As a general rule, in case of doubt or if symptoms persist, always call a doctor.
NEVER induce swallowing in an unconscious person.
In the event of exposure by inhalation: In case of exposition to important vapors, fumes or aerosols concentration, bring the personn to fresh air.
In the event of splashes or contact with eyes: Wash immediately in copious amounts of water, keeping eyelids apart for at least 15 minutes and consult a specialist.
In the event of splashes or contact with skin: Wash thoroughly with wter and soap. If the skin is touched with an high pressure nozzle, there is a risk of body introduction. Injured person should be transported to hospital even in the absence of obvious injury.
In the event of swallowing: No risk. Do not attempt to induce vomiting and do not make the person drink.
Information for the doctor: In case of incident, treat it symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Foam, powder, CO2
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Water jet
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Insulated breathing apparatus must be worn in confined premises with heavy concentrations of fumes and gases.
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products, resulting gases: Incomplete combustion and thermolysis produce gases of varying toxicity such as CO, CO2, various hydrocarbons, aldehydes and soot. These may be highly dangerous if inhaled.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Consult the safety measures listed under headings 7 and 8.

Environmental precautions:
Contain and control the leaks or spills with non-combustible absorbent materials such as sand, earth, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth in drums for waste disposal.
Prevent any material from entering drains or waterways.
Design installations so as to prevent water and ground pollution. Do not allow to penetrate into sewers, rivers and ground water.

Methods for cleaning up:
Sucking up or mechanical gathering
- recovery : contain and collect the spilled product, sand the surfaces concerned if necessary.
- elimination : recover all wastes and dispose in compliance with current regulations.

Handling and storage

Engineering / preventive measures
Mechanical ventilation and exhaust ventilation

Fire prevention:
Prevent access by unauthorised personnel.
There is a fire hazard associated with rags, paper or any other material used to remove spills which become soaked with product.
Avoid accumulation of these: they are to be disposed off safely after use.

Recommended equipment and procedures:
- Use only containers, pipes and joints resistant to hot bitumen and hydrocarbons.
To minimise the risk of fire, design installations so as to avoid accidental spills and splashes (for example if a joints breaks) onto hot machine parts and electrical contacts.

Keep away from heat and dampness

Exposure controls / personal protection

Use personal protection equipment as per Directive 89/686/EEC.
Technical measures: Personnel shall wear regularly laundered overalls.
Exposure limit values per INRS ED 984: No exposure limit value in France.
Respiratory protection: Not required.
Hand protection: Impermeable hydrocarbon-proof gloves.
Eye and face protection: Goggles, in case of risk of splashing.
Skin protection: As required, wear a face mask, hydrocarbon-proof clothing, and safety boots (when handling drums).

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid: Sparks, hot points, open flames and static electricity.
Materials to avoid: oxidising agents
Hazardous decomposition products: Incomplete combustion and thermolysis produce more or less toxic gases such as CO, CO2, various hydrocarbons, aldehydes and soot.

Disposal considerations

Do not pour into drains or waterways.
Waste: Recycle or dispose of waste in compliance with current legislation, preferably via a certified collector or company.
Do not contaminate the ground or water with waste, do not dispose of waste into the environment.
Soiled packaging:
Empty container completely. Keep label(s) on container.
Give to a certified disposal contractor.
