Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Move to fresh air. If you feel unwell, seek medical


Emergency measure - Eyes: After contact with the eyes:

Rinse immediately with gently running water for 15

minutes, maintaining eyelids open. Consult an

ophthalmologist or a physician.

Emergency measure - Skin: After contact with the skin:

Rinse skin immediately with copious amounts of water.

Immediately remove contaminated clothing. Consult a

physician if any symptoms develop.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: After ingestion or accident:

Only as long as the patient is fully conscious: wash

mouth and have the victim drink copious amounts of water

(often vomiting will be induced). Consult a physician

immediately or call for an ambulance and show label.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam & dry powder

Product arising from burning: CO2

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: The on-site fire crews would tackle any localised fire with

a dry powder extinguisher.  If a major fire was involved,

the foam-enhanced building sprinkler system would

automatically activate. The building drainage system is

arranged such that all fire water run-off is captured within

a 200 M3 catchment tank.  The contents of the catchment

tank would be analysed and if required, all of the liquid

would be sent for incineration.  If there is a risk of fume

inhalation, the firemen would wear a Kappler responder gas-

tight suit (to standard ASTM F1001 chemical test battery and

ASTM F739 Permeation Test)

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: In the event of spillage, the liquid will be contained by

use of adsorbent 'pigs' and the use of loose adsorbent

vermiculite.  Drainage covers would be blanked off and the

residues would be wiped and scraped up.  All such

collections of spilled waste would be securely contained and

sent for incineration.  In bulk, within the drum container,

the substance has a tendency to remain in the liquid form

below its melting point of 30°C, but upon being spilled,

tends to 'shock' into the solid form.  This would aid in

preventing the substance entering the wider environment.

Handling and storage

Handling: Please see the details contained in section 2.1.50

Storage: MALAM liquid will be supplied in 200 kg net weight steel

drums. The enclosed substance will be stored under cover in

a warehouse unit until required for use in the production

building.  Only the required amount for one batch will be

transferred to the production building at any time.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance will be supplied in 200 litre capacity mild

steel drums

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: No other particular danger known.

Chemical reaction with water: No formation of explosive vapours.

Dust explosion: It is not relevent as the substance is a undercooled liquid.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: It is envisaged that all of the notified substance will be

consumed in the process, therefore recovery is not


Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance is a tertiary amine and therefore basic in

chemical character.  It can be chemically neutralised by the

addition of a mineral acid e.g. hydrochloric acid, to

produce the hydrochloride salt.  However, since this would

render the substance more soluble in water and taking into

account the danger the substance poses to the environment,

this mode of neutralisation would not be attempted.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: All process effluent will be contained, not allowed to enter

the environment and will be sent for incineration within

the UK

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: Not applicable.
