Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and
sulphur oxides together with some phosphorus oxides, soot
and hydrogen fluoride gas. A self-contained breathing
apparatus should be used. Suitable extinguishing reagents
are water, carbon dioxide, foam and dry powder.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Sweep up after dampening the substance with moist absorbent
material. Dispose of by incineration.

Handling and storage

Danger other than fire: [UK c.a.: Reactive dyes have been observed to cause
respiratory sensitisation. If sensitisation occurs the
patient should contact a physician and be removed from
contact with the substance.]

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Dyestuff remaining after use cannot be recovered.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, the substance is not classified as
hazardous.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal by this means is possible for material spilt in an
accident.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: This method should be used to destroy the substance. Acidic
gases may be formed, NOx, SOx and hydrogen fluoride.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is not readily biodegradable but will be
eliminated by adsorption on sludge. Waste water from dyeing
baths will be treated before discharge. The amount of
substance (or its hydrolysis product) in discharged water
after treatment will be 15 mg/l or less.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The dyestuff cannot be recovered from dyed material.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Materials dyed with the substance may be disposed of in the
same manner as household waste.
