Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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: Remove to fresh air if effects occur. Consult a physician.

Note to physician:

May cause tissue destruction leading to stricture. If lavage

is performed, suggest endotracheal and/or esophagoscopic

control. If burn is present, treat as any thermal burn,

after decontamination. No specific antidote. Supportive

care. Treatment based on judgement of the physician's

response to reactions of the patient.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediate and continuous irrigation with flowing water for

at least 30 minutes is imperative. Sek medical advice


Emergency measure - Skin: Immedately flush with plenty of water for at least 15

minutes. Remove residues with soap and water. Wash

contaminated clothes before reuse.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Give large amounts of water or milk

if available and transport to medical facility. If lavage is

performed, suggest endotracheal and/or oesophageal control.

Danger from lung aspiration must be weighed against toxicity

when considering emptying the stomach.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide.

Water must not be used.

Product arising from burning: Carbon monoxide, aldehydes, hydrogen fluoride and other

decomposition and combustion products in the case of

incomplete combustion.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Minimize breathing gases, vapors, fumes, or decomposition

products. Use supplied-air breathing equipment.

Accidental release measures

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

extinguish any sources of ignition.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment including

chemical protective clothing, gloves, eye protection,

appropriate footwear and respiratory protection as specified

in Section 2.3.10.

Absorb spillages with a suitable inert material (e.g. sand

or soil). 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 CGC Co-Catalyst containers.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local

regulations by incineration.

Ventilate spillage area after material is cleaned up.

Flushings and washwaters must be confined and prevented from

entering into soil, waterways and ground water.

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

ingestion, inhalation, skin and eye contact.

Use local exhaust ventilation.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

personal protective equipment including eye protection, e.g.

goggles, impervious neoprene or nitrile butadiene rubber

gloves, chemical resistant footwear and chemical protective

clothing  made of neoprene, nitrile butadiene rubber or PVC

(apron) should be worn. Furthermore, when respiratory

equipment is required it must be capable of adequately

controlling exposure, be suitable for the purpose and

conform to the appropriate national or international

standards. When there is a risk of exposure to vapours, a

half-face fiilter mask is advised in combination with

cartriges for organic vapours (classification: A2).

Storage: The substance should be stored in sealed containers under an

inert atmosphere. Exposure to water and moist air must be


Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Glass bottles in sealed steel drums with appropriate shock

absorbent materials. Only UN approved packaging shall be

Stability and reactivity

well to oxidising agents.

Chemical reaction with water: Hydrolysis will occur quickly.

Avoid exposure to water or moist air.

Dust explosion: Not anticipated.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: After use, this substance cannot be traced in the final

polymer as such, therefore cannot be recovered or recycled.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The reactive chemical properties of the substance can be

neutralised by reacting it with isopropanol.

No treatment specifically to neutralise the health or

environmental hazards is known, although the chemical

neutralisation with isopropanol might reduce the skin and

eye irritation effects.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The substance should not be disposed of by landfill.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance should be neutralised with isopropanol and

disposed of by incineration under controlled conditions at a

licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local

regulations. Stack gases should be scrubbed, because noxious

fumes (e.g. carbon monoxide, aldehydes, hydrogen fluoride

and boron containing compounds) may be produced.

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

sewage system or the aqueous environment. However, the

substance has been shown not to be unduly toxic to sewage
