First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move the exposed person to fresh air. In case of
indisposition, seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water. If irritation occurs, seek
medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment. In case of indisposition, seek
medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam, dry powder, CO2

Product arising from burning: Substance itself does not represent a fire hazard. If
involved in a fire, mainly nitric oxides, carbon oxides as
well as sulfur-, fluorine- and sodium compounds may be

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Self contained breathing apparatus should be used.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: During handling and destruction of the substance, wear dust
mask, suitable goggles, impermeable gloves and protective


For dry residues, collect and discharge by incineration in

a suitable plant. For spillage, absorb with adequate
absorber and discharge by incineration in a suitable plant.

The labelling of the containers filled with the substance to

be destroyed should indicate the danger of the substance.

Handling and storage

Handling: The usual precautions for the handling with chemicals should
be observed. Avoid skin contact and wear impermeable gloves.

If the substance is handled as a powder, avoid dust forma-
tion and wear dust mask. Dust-proof filling apparatus or

appropriate exhaust system should then be used.

Storage: The containers should be stored tightly closed in unbreak-
able containers in adequate rooms.

Avoid spillings of the product outside the containers.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

Chemical reaction with water: Does not react with water.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Normal application results in the consumption of 77 % by

irreversible binding to textiles.

Recovery for recycling of the remaining water soluble

substance is not reasonable practical.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No unacceptable risks. Therefore not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not suitable for deposit in landfill site.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Discharge by incineration at high temperatures in excess of

1200'C in a suitable facility with the equipment necessary
to remove oxides of sulfur and nitrogen as well as
halogenated compounds.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: It is estimated that 23 % of the total quantity used is
discharged into internal industrial effluents as a highly

diluted solution. A purification of the waste water is
recommended. This substance should be used in a well
equipped dye house.

The waste water can be purified by membrane filtration or by
floculation with cationic agents or by treatment with ozone.

The most effective method is the membrane filtration: more

than 99 % of the dyestuff can be removed from the waste

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: ---

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: None.
