Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

General advice

Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Remove contaminated, soaked clothing immediately and dispose of safely. First aider needs to protect himself.


Aerate with fresh air. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.


Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.


Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.


Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Obtain medical attention.

Main symptoms

Exposure may result in reddening, tears and itching of the eyes and soreness in the nose and throat, together with coughing, Repeated and prolonged exposure to solvents may cause brain and nervous system damage.

Notes to physician

Treat symptomatically

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

foam. dry chemical. carbon dioxide (CO2).

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons

Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or released gases

Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors

Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of

carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2).

Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

Fire fighter protection should include a self-contained breathing apparatus (NIOSH-approved or EN 133) and full fire-fighting turn out gear.

Precautions for fire-fighting

Keep people away from and upwind of fire. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Dike and collect water used to fight fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Avoid breathing vapors or mists. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

For emergency responders: Personal protection see section 8. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.

Environmental precautions

Prevent further leakage or spillage. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods for containment

Stop the flow of material, if possible without risk.

Methods for cleaning up

DO NOT use combustible materials such as sawdust. Soak up with inert absorbent material. Allow to solidify, use mechanical handling equipment. Sweep up or vacuum up spillage and collect in suitable container for disposal. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours).

Handling and storage


Advice on safe handling

Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Refill and handle product only in closed system.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours). Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Vapour is heavier than air and can travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flashback. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be available.

Environmental precautions

see section 8 - environmental exposure controls


Technical measures/Storage conditions

Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Advice on common storage

Incompatible products:

strong oxidizing agents

acids and bases

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures

Handle product only in closed system or provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Vapors may cause flash fire or explosion.

Personal protective equipment

General industrial hygiene practice

Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.

Hygiene measures

When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.

Hand protection

Wear protective gloves. Recommendations are listed below. Other protective material may be used, depending on the situation, if adequate degradation and permeation data is available. If other chemicals are used in conjunction with this chemical, material selection should be based on protection for all chemicals present.

Suitable material: Viton

Eye protection

Safety glasses with side-shields. In addition to goggles, wear a face shield if there is a reasonable chance for splash to the face.

Skin and body protection

Impervious clothing.

Environmental exposure controls

Use product only in closed system. If leakage can not be prevented, the substance needs to be suck off at the emersion point, if possible without danger. Inform the responsible authorities in case of leakage into the atmosphere, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains.

Stability and reactivity


Stable under normal conditions of handling, use and transportation.

Hazardous reactions

Hazardous polymerisation may occur. Polymerization is a highly exothermic reaction and may generate sufficient heat to cause thermal decomposition and/or rupture containers.

Conditions to avoid

Avoid any source of ignition. Avoid contact with heat, sparks, open flame, and static discharge.

Materials to avoid

oxidizing agents, radical initiators, strong acids, strong bases.

Hazardous decomposition products

No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Disposal considerations

Disposal required in compliance with all waste management related state and local regulations. The choice of the appropriate method of disposal depends on the product composition by the time of disposal as well as the local statutes and possibilities for disposal.

Uncleaned empty packaging

Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be taken for reuse.
