First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Eyes: [UK c.a.: Rinse with water]
Emergency measure - Skin: [UK c.a.: Wash with soap and water]
Emergency measure - Ingestion: [UK c.a.: Seek medical attention]

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and sulphur
oxides together with soot and possibly hydrogen cyanide. A
self-contained breathing apparatus should be used. Suitable
extinguishing media are water, carbon dioxide, foam and dry
powder.

Accidental release measures

Handling and storage

Handling: The usual precautions for the handling of chemicals should
be observed. [UK c.a.: avoid dust formation, if necessary
use respiratory protection.]

Storage: No special precautions, store in closed containers in
adequate rooms.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recyling is not practicable as over 95% of the
substance is consumed in use and it is highly water soluble.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable on the basis of the tests performed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a landfill site is possible.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Disposal by incineration is possible but the facility should
be equipped to remove acidic gases (NOx, SOx) and hydrogen
cyanide gas as it may be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: It is estimated that far less than 5% of the total quantity
used is discharged into internal industrial effluents as a
highly diluted solution. Dyehouses and paper-mills are well
aware of this waste water and remedy it by installing
prepurification plants. Part of it will be discharged into
industrial effluent. It can be assumed that the dyestuff
will be completely biodegraded under aerobic conditions (see
5.2.1.1).

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from articles is not possible

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Dyed articles may be destroyed in the appropriate manner
normally used for their disposal.
