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 advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: - Water, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide

Product arising from burning: - Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and sul-

fur oxides and iron compounds.

Product determined by test: N

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

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: - Wear protective clothing (dust mask, safety goggles and

impermeable gloves).


Solids : Sweep up (wet powders with water) and place in

suitable containers for disposal.


Aqueous solutions: Absorb using a suitable absorbent
(sand, silica gel, kieselguhr, saw dust),
collect and place in suitable containers for disposal.


Dispose of waste material at a controlled landfill site or
authorised incineration facility.

Handling and storage

Handling: - Observe the usual precautions for handling chemicals. If

the substance is handled as a powder, avoid inhalation of

dust and wear dust mask. Use equipment for handling pow-

ders or other appropriate engineering controls.

Avoid skin contact and wear impermeable gloves.

Storage: - The substance should be stored in well sealed and secure

containers in adequate rooms.

Avoid dust residue outside the containers.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: - Normal application results in the consumption of approx.

98 % by irreversible binding to leather.

Recovery for recycling of the remaining highly water so-

luble substance is not reasonably practical.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: - Not applicable.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: - Discharge by incineration at high temperatures (>800°C)

in a suitable facility with the equipment necessary to

remove oxides of sulfur and nitrogen as well as haloge-

nated compounds.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: - It is estimated that 2 % 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 (WTP) is recommended. This

substance should be used in a well equipped dye house.


It is very likely that the remaining 2% are adsorbed by

the sludge during the waste water treatment, and any fur-

ther purification would then not be necessary.
