Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

If inhaled:

After inhalation of decomposition products: Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

On skin contact:

Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

On contact with eyes:

In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

On ingestion:

Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

water, carbon dioxide, foam

Specific hazards:

ammonia, carbon dioxide

The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Further information:

Product itself is non-combustible; fire extinguishing method of surrounding areas must be considered.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Breathing protection required. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:

For residues: Sweep/shovel up.

Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage


Avoid dust formation.

Protection against fire and explosion:

Store in a cool place. If heated the drums can burst due to pressure build-up.


Segregate from nitrites and alkaline substances.

Do not store with: sodium nitrate

Further information on storage conditions: Store in unopened original containers in a cool and dry place.

Protect from temperatures above: 30 °C

Changes in the properties of the product may occur if substance/product is stored above indicated temperature for extended periods of time.

Components with workplace control parameters

124-38-9: carbon dioxide


1111-78-0: ammonium carbamate


7664-41-7: ammonia


Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Gas filter for gases/vapours of alkaline compounds such as ammonia, amines (e.g. EN 14387 Type K). Combination filter for gases/vapours of organic, inorganic, acid inorganic, alkaline compounds and toxic particles (e. g. EN 14387 Type ABEK-P3) Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Self-contained breathing apparatus.

Hand protection:

Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures:

Do not breathe dust. At the end of the shift the skin should be cleaned and skin-care agents applied.

Substances to avoid:

bases, acids

Hazardous reactions:

Exothermic reaction. Reacts with alkalis and nitrites. Reacts with nitrates. Incompatible with bases.

Hazardous decomposition products:

ammonia, carbon dioxide

Disposal considerations
