Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 to fresh air. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell

or if exposure prolonged.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10

minutes. If irritation occurs, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash affected skin with soap

and plenty of water.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Drink plenty of water.

In case of indisposition seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, dry powder, foam and carbon dioxide may be used.

Product arising from burning: COx, NOx, SO2 and other toxic gases.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.00). Sweep up

(wet powders with water), for liquids absorb using a

suitable absorbent material (eg. kieselguhr, sand, saw dust

etc). Transfer to labelled containers and dispose of by

incineration in accordance with local regulations. Wash

spill site with water. Prevent release to water courses.

Handling and storage

Handling: Ensure adequate ventilation. Observe the usual precautions

for handling chemicals. If the substance is handled as

powder, avoid inhalation and contact with skin and eyes.

Wear suitable protective gloves, safety goggles and a dust

mask. Use equipment for handling powders or other

appropriate engineering controls.

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

containers in adequate rooms at room temperature. Avoid

dust residue outside the containers.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Shipped in dyestuff containers with two layers of fibreboard

and plastic.

Disposal considerations

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

97.5% by irreversible binding to the polyester fibres.

Recovery for recyling of the remaining substance is not

reasonably practicable.

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: Code 661: Incinerator with flue gas scrubbing.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Code 641: Removal by controlled discharge to a waste water

treatment plant.

It is estimated that approx. 2.5% of the total quantity used

is discharged into internal industrial effluents a 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 dye ouse. 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 dyestiff can be removed from the

waste water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
