Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of first aid measures

Relocate individual form contamination site/ source; remove all contaminated clothing avoiding exposure to yourself and/ or others.

Take off contaminated clothing and wash it before reuse. If symptoms persist or worsen seek medical advice/attention. NEVER give anything by mouth to an impaired or unconscious individual, place in recovery (left sideways) position with the knees bent and transport to a healthcare centre, bring the label or container if possible. Never leave an intoxicated individual unattended!

If inhaled:

Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing. Keep the person calm, maintain body temperature, monitor breathing, start artificial respiration if necessary. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor.

On skin contact:

Wash skin with plenty of water without rubbing.

On contact with eyes:

Rinse immediately with water at least for 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open. Always check and remove contact lenses. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: Skin and eye contact: Irritation to severe burns of the skin and eyes. May induce eye lacrimation, skin sensitization and/or allergic dermatitis. Mouth contact/ingestion: Irritation to corrosion of the gastrointestinal tract. May include nausea, vomiting, ulceration of the oesophagus and/or stomach with subsequent perforation, hematemesis and/or internal bleeding.

Inhalation/aspiration: Irritation to corrosion of the respiratory tract. May include coughing, rhinitis, coryza, epistaxis, pulmonary oedema, bronchospasm, respiratory distress and/ or asthma. Other clinical manifestations may include; headache, tachycardia, palpitations, hypotension and depression of the CNS.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed Treatment: Monitor vital signs for at least 24 hours and provide symptomatic and supportive treatment following local protocols. In case of ingestion evaluate realization of endoscopy and immediate dilution and/or decontamination. The use of ipecac syrup is contraindicated. If inhaled, administer a corticosteroid from a controlled/ metered dose inhaler. No known antidote is currently available. Pulmonary oedema prophylaxis.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

foam, water spray, dry powder, carbon dioxide

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides

The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Advice for fire-fighters

Special protective equipment:

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:

Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Environmental precautions

Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For large amounts: Pump off product.

For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Avoid aerosol formation.

Protection against fire and explosion:

Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Suitable materials for containers: High density polyethylene (HDPE), Low density polyethylene (LDPE), Stove-lacquer RDL 50, glass, Stainless steel 1.4541

Unsuitable materials for containers: Paper/Fibreboard, Carbon steel (Iron)

Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Keep under inert gas.

Keep at temperature not exceeding 40 °C.

Storage stability:

Storage temperature: <= 25 °C Storage duration: 12 Months

From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits

111-30-8: glutaral

Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment Respiratory protection:

Breathing protection if gases/vapours are formed. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A) Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Combination filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds and solid and liquid particles (f.e. EN 14387 Type A-P2)

Hand protection:

Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)

Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):

butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Eye protection:

Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.

Body protection:

Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. chemical protective suit according to EN 14605 for example made of polyolefin laminate.

General safety and hygiene measures

Do not breathe vapour/spray. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. Gloves must be inspected regularly and prior to each use. Replace if necessary (e.g. pinhole leaks). Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Store work clothing separately.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid

Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. See MSDS section 7 - Handling and storage.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.

A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to dependence on the usage.

The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.

Contaminated packaging:

Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling after being thoroughly cleaned.
