Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent:

All extinguishing agents normally used.

Product arising from burning:

Sulphur oxides, nitrous gases

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment:

Self-contained respirator, full protective suit

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage:

Ensure good ventilation.

Working procedures must be designed so that exposure by

inhalation and dermal contact is minimized and contact with

the eyes is excluded.

Do not allow the substance to enter aquatic environments/the

soil/drains/the environment.

Neutralize the aqueous solution with bicarbonate.

First moisten the product in order to avoid the formation of

dust or cover with moist, inert material.

Fill into sealable, labelled containers.

Dispose of the solution at an authorized landfill site or at

an incineration plant according to local/national


Handling and storage


Avoid inhalation of the substance and contact with the skin

and eyes.

In the case of handling in open systems, any dust which

forms should be extracted directly at the point of


Respirators (e.g. filtering device with P3 filter) should

be worn in cases where technical extraction or ventilation

measures are either not possible or not adequate.

Tested protective gloves and, if  necessary, suitable

protective clothing should be worn to avoid contact with the

skin. A safe eye protector is absolutely essential.

Where possible, closed or at least dustproof/splashproof

equipment should be used during filling, metered feeding,

and sampling.

Generally for dusty organic substances a dust explosure

possibility has to be asssumed. Therefore the formation of

dust while handling the dry substance has to be avoided;

provide sufficient ventilation and take measures against

static discharges, in dependence of equipment, handling and

package (eg. by grounding containers, apparatus, pumps and

exhaust ventilation plant etc.).

When using do not eat/drink/smoke. Wash hands before breaks

and after finishing work. Remove contaminated or soaked



Store in unbreakable and air-tight containers.

Secure container against falling.

Keep the substance dry and cool. Avoid product residues on

containers. Label of empty containers in

accordance with the regulations.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation:

Store in plastic containers or cardboard box with

PE inner sack (50 kg).

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling:

Loosen the substance with suitable solvent

- recristallised.

It is not technically possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation:

No possibilities for neutralization.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others:

Ready-to-use cosmetic products are mainly disposed of

together with the household waste.
