First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment. Seek medical
attention immediately.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush eyes with copious amounts of clean water for at least
fifteen minutes. Seek medical attention immediately.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash skin with copious amounts of clean water for at least
fifteen minutes. Seek medical attention immediately.



Launder clothing before re-use.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder or appropriate foam or
water spray.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire evolving noxious fumes, such as carbon oxides and
bromine containing gases.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full self-contained breathing apparatus and protective
clothing must be worn.


Fight the fire from a safe and protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.


Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to

the relevant national or international standards, as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.


Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material
(eg. lime or soda ash). Carefully transfer the spillage to
waste containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original substance containers.



Clean the spillage area with water and detergent.



Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure by skin and
eye contact and by inhalation.


Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

substance, such as exhaust ventilation.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment, such as chemical
resistant gloves and safety goggles should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards.


Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be

used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure,

be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the appropriate
international or national standards, such as a dust mask
conforming to EN149 FFP1.


These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry environment away from extreme
temperatures and sources of ignition.


Keep container lids closed securely when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Polyethylene bag inside a fibre drum (UN approved).

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported

Chemical reaction with water: None reported

Dust explosion: As with all organic powders there is a tendency for this
substance to form explosive dust mixtures if allowed to
become airborne.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration or landfill. In principle, it
may be possible to recover larger spillages of
uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is not
considered hazardous to health. However, by analogy with

other similar compounds this substance is considered to be
corrosive in contact with skin.


No chemical treatment is known to neutralise the substance.
The dust hazard will be controlled by engineering measures
such as local exhaust ventilation.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed
with inert material (eg. sand or soil) may be disposed of by

landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local
regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon
oxides and bromine containing gases) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to

the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
unlikely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
