First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove the person to the fresh air. Seek medical advice if the person inhales large amounts of dust. Workers having respiratory diseases should not handle reactive dyes. If there are any complaints in connection wiht handling reactive dyes such as shortness of breath or asthma seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with plenty of water in order to avoid discolouring of the eye; if necessary seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: Clean with large quantities of water, soap or other suitable agents which are kind to the skin. If irritation persists, seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Drink plenty of water, if necessary wuith added activated charcoal. If the person feels unwell seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water fog, foam, dry extinguishing agent, carbon dioxide. There is no restriction. It is dependent on the extent of fire and the local surroundings.
Product arising from buring: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen flouride.
Product determined by test: N
Protective equipment: Protection suit and respirator (dependent on the extent of fire and the local surroundings).

Accidental release measures

Skin contact and inhalation of dusts and dye solutions should be avoided while accidentially spilt material is collected. Label waste containers accordingly. Persons performing approrpiate cleaning are advised to observe the protective measures prescribed for handling of the substance. In the event of spilling granulated product, dust generation is best avoided by covering with moistened inert material in order to avoid formation of dust. Dye solutions should be taken up with an appropriate absorbing material. Use an approved industrial vacuum cleaner to conatin spilled material once absorbed. Waste containers should be marked approrpiately and sent for disposal via a licensed waste contractor.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance is considered safe for handling in for its intended use. Utilise safe filling and metering equipment whic prevents contact with the substance must be ensured. Effective exhaust ventilation must be ensured during handling of the substance, in particular in the case of the formtion of dusts of vapours/aerosols. Wear suitable protection clothes, gloves and goggles if skin or eye contact is possible. Dust masks, e.g. a filtrating half mask P1, googles, e.g. tightly fitting goggles, gloves, e.g. polyethylene or polypropylene disposable gloves and protective clothing, e.g. normal working clothes must be worn. Change spoiled clothes. It is recommended that users observe the measures mentioned in "Guidelines for the safe handling of dyestuff in colour storerooms" from ETAD. Do not inhale the dust. Respiratory proetction must be worn in the case of inadequate exhaust ventilation or prolonged exposure. Avoid skin contact. Persons with chronic respiration diseases should not handle reactive dyes. If there are any complaints such as shortness of breath or asthma in connection with the handling of reactive dyes seek medical advice. Avoid any contact with the dye in such cases.

Storage: Store dry and at room temperature in tightly cloed containers. Keep store rooms according to principles of good personal hygiene. Closed broken conatiners tightly. Avoid residues on/at containers. Secure containers against falling. Keep away from light. All of the opening packing drums must be closed lightly again after use. Store seperate from food, tobacco and alcohol.
Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Cardboard box with PE liner (30L / 35kg).

Transport: Keep containers tightly closed and in a dry place. Packing drums must be kept carefully closed during in-company transportation in order to avoid spillage of the substance. Secure the containers against falling. Seek common transport measures like safeguard against falling, attention to stack height and the labelling of the containers. Label containers in accordance with the appropriate legislation.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Standard risk management measures should be applied during use of the substance and products containing the substance. The following Risk Management Measures are therefore recommended to facilitate good hygiene standards:
-Local Exhaust Ventilation, where available
-Hand Protection, such as chemiaclly resistant gloves e.g. PVC or nitrile rubber (e.g. EN374)
-Protective Clothing, to EN368 standard as minimum
-Eye Protection, safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN166)
-Respiratory Protection, with 95% reduction of inhaled substance when handling material that may generate dust (e.g. EN149)

Stability and reactivity

The substance is considered stable when used in the manner for which it is intended.
Reactivity: Stable
Danger other than fire: No risks are assumed for handling the substance
Chemical reaction with water: Slow hydrolysis of the reaction component
Dust explosion: The preparations are dust-poor granulates or liquid preparations. In the production process only solutions are used
Dust explosion determined by test: Y
Conditions to avoid: Avoid dust build up
Hazardous Decomposition: Thermal decomposition products: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen flouride.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recycling of used dyes is not possible. Wash waters from the dye process is recycled to minimise loss of product.
Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not known
Industry - Possibility of destruction: Disposal is possible on seepage-proof waste disposal site in accordance with local regulations.
Industry - Possibility of destruction: incineration: Dry dyes may be incinerated. This results in the formation of the waste gases which normally occur during the incineration of organic compounds containing carbon, nitrgoen and sulphur. Dependent on the quantity of the dye which is to be incinerated, special flue-gas treatement may therefore be necessary. As a rule, dye run-offs are too diluted for incineration to be a sensible option. Incineration should be undertaken in compliance with associated legislation.
Industry - Possibility of destruction: water purification: Organic dyes are not biodegradable (aerob) because of the short retention time. A disposal by the waste water should not be recommended. Also an accumulation at the sewage sludge is possible. Wastes from sewage plant processing should be incinerated.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The public at large does not come into contact with the substance in the case of use as intended. Use by the public at large only occurs in the form of the products produced from the substance (dyed products).
Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: None known
Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The coloured products containing the substance only in little amounts could be disposed with the house waste onto a licensed disposal site by means of landfilling.
Public at large - Possibility of destruction: incineration: Incinration os the preferred option for disposing of the dryed products which only contain the substance in small quantites.
Public at large - Possibility of destruction: water purification: Not applicable
Public at large - Possibility of destruction: others: Not applicable
