First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move exposed person to fresh air; in case of indisposition
seek medical advice.
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

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, dry powder, foam

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and sulfur
oxides as well as sodium and chlorinated derivatives.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear self contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: While taking up the spillage and cleaning the polluted area
avoid skin and eye contact as well as inhalation of the
substance by wearing appropriate personal protective
equipment (see section "Handling").

Solids: sweep up (wet powders with water) and place in
suitable containers for disposal.

Liquids: absorb using an adequate absorbent (such as
kieselgur, sand, saw dust) collect and place in suitable
containers for disposal.

Waste containers have to be tightly closed and labelled
according to TRGS 201.

Dispose of waste material in authorized incineration

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions for handling chemicals. If the
pure substance is handled as powder, avoid inhalation of
dust and wear dust mask. Use equipmant for handling powders
or other appropriate engineering controls. Avoid skin and
sye contact and wear impermeable gloves and safety goggles.
Das Tragen von geeigneter Schutzkleidung

(z.B. normale Arbeitskleidung) wird empfohlen.

In unmittelbarer Nähe des Arbeitsbereiches sollten
Augenbrausen bereitgestellt und ihr Standort auffällig
gekennzeichnet werden.

Bei möglicher Staubentwicklung sollten wegen der
potentiellen Staubexplosionsgefahr potentielle Zündquellen
aus dem Arbeitsbereich entfernt werden.

Des weiteren sollten Maßnahmen gegen elektrostatische
Aufladungen getroffen werden.


The wearing of protective clothing (e.g. :::) is recommended

Eye douches should be made available in the immediate
vicinity of the work area and their location should be
indicated conspicuously.

If dust can develop, due to the potential dust explosion
risk, potential ignition sources should be removed from the
work area.

In addition, measures should be taken to prevent
electrostatic discharges .

Storage: The substance should be stored in well sealed and secure
containers in adequate rooms at room temperature. Avoid
residue outside the containers.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Adequate plastic containers

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Normal application results in the consumption of ca. 74 %

by irreversible binding to the cellulose or polyamide
fibers; recovery or recycling of the remaining test
substance is not possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No suitable method known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not suitable for deposit in landfill site.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration with flue gas scrubbing.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Removal by controlled discharge to a waste water treatment
plant. It is estimated that approx. 26 % of the total
quantity used is discharged into internal industrial
effluents as highly diluted solution. A purification of

the waste water in a waste water treatment plant is
recommended. The dyestuff should be used in a well equiped

If necessary the waste water can be purified prior to the
waste water treatment by membrane filtration or by
floculation with cationic agents or by treatment with ozone.
The most effective method is the membrane filtration: more
than 99 % of the remaining dyestuff can be removed from the
waste water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable
