First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Cases of respiratory sensitization have been observed with
reactive dyes and care should be taken to avoid inhalation.

Should an individual become sensitized, a physician should
be consulted and all contact with reactive dyes must cease
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash contaminated areas of the body with plenty of running
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water mist, foam, carbon dioxide and dry powder can be used
as extinguishing agents.

Product arising from burning: Products of decomposition may contain carbondioxide,
-monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide and hydrogen
bromide or the respective sodium salts.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Self-contained breathing apparatus can be used, or usual
respiratory protection equipment for fire-fighters.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: For powder: Collect up and put in controlled discharge or

incinerate in an authorised installation

For liquids: Soak up on absorbent material and incinerate or
dispose of at controlled site.

Handling and storage

Handling: Minimize exposure by use of standard occupational hygiene
procedures and good housekeeping: eye/face protection, head
covering and gloves should be used. Avoid inhalation.
Weighing to be in an enclosed ventilated area and on low
level scales for ease of handling.

Avoid dust formation and wear dust mask, e.g. BNS.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None.

Chemical reaction with water: No critical reaction; the reactive groups of the substance
may slowly hydrolize in aqueous systems.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: After application on the textiles the substance is fast
fixed on the fibres and part of it-a recovery is not pos-

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not possible, substance is a sodium salt of (a) sulfonic
acid groups (group).

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Without any problems

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Without any problems

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is not biodegradable and in the aqueous medium
completely hydrolized referring to the reactive group and
