Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move the victim to fresh air. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration. Keep patient warm and at rest. Call a physician or Poison Control Center immediately.

Emergency measure - Eye Contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses. Immediate medical attention is required.

Emergency measure - Skin Contact: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off immediately with plenty of water. If skin irritation persists, call a physician. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show this container

or label. Do NOT induce vomiting.

Emergency measure - Medical Advice: There is no specific antidote available. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

Extinguishing media - small fires:

Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Extinguishing media - large fires:

Alcohol-resistant foam or Water spray

Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Specific hazards during fire fighting: Fire will spread by burning with a visible flame. As the product contains combustible organic components, fire will

produce dense black smoke containing hazardous products of combustion (see section stability and reactivity). Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information : Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust. Do not create a powder cloud by using a brush or compressed air. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Personal precautions : Refer to protective measures listed in sections handling and storage as and exposure control personal protection. Avoid dust formation.

Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods for cleaning up : Contain spillage, pick up with an electrically protected vacuum cleaner or by wet-brushing and transfer to a container for disposal

according to local regulations (see section disposal considerations). Do not create a powder cloud by using a brush or compressed air. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.

Additional advice : If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Handling and storage


Advice on safe handling :

This material is capable of forming flammable dust clouds in air, which, if ignited, can produce a dust cloud explosion. Flames, hot surfaces, mechanical sparks and electrostatic discharges can serve as ignition sources for this material. Electrical equipment should be compatible with the flammability characteristics of this material. The flammability characteristics will be made worse if the material contains traces of flammable solvents or is handled in the presence of flammable solvents. In general personnel handling this material and all conducting equipment should be electrically earthed or grounded. Consideration should be given to avoiding the use of insulating plastics. Bulk bags (FIBC) used to contain this material should be Type C or Type D. Type C bags must be electrically grounded before powder is charged to or discharged from the bag. Bag filters used to scavenge dust from material handling processes should be conductive and electrically grounded during use. If metal or fibre drums are used to contain this product, make certain that the metal parts are bonded to the filling equipment and grounded. This material can become readily charged in most operations. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

For personal protection see section exposure control/ personal protection.


Requirements for storage areas and containers:

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

Keep out of the reach of children.

Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.

Exposure controls / personal protection


Containment and/or segregation is the most reliable technical protection measure if exposure cannot be eliminated.

The extent of these protection measures depends on the actual risks in use.

If airborne dust is generated, use local exhaust ventilation controls.

Assess exposure and use any additional measures to keep airborne levels below any relevant exposure limit.

Where necessary, seek additional occupational hygiene advice.


Protective measures : The use of technical measures should always have priority over the use of personal protective equipment.

When selecting personal protective equipment, seek appropriate professional advice.

Personal protective equipment should be certified to appropriate standards.

Respiratory protection : No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required.

A particulate filter respirator may be necessary until effective technical measures are installed.

Hand protection : Chemical resistant gloves are not usually required.

Select gloves based on the physical job requirements.

Eye protection : Eye protection is not usually required.

Follow any site specific eye protection policies.

Skin and body protection : No special protective equipment required.

Select skin and body protection based on the physical job requirements.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous decomposition products:

Combustion or thermal decomposition will evolve toxic and irritant vapors.

Hazardous reactions :

None known.

Hazardous polymerisation does not occur.

Stable under normal conditions.

Disposal considerations


Where possible recycling is preferred to disposal or incineration.

It must undergo special treatment, e.g. at suitable disposal site, to

comply with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging:

Dispose of as unused product.
