Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Administrative data

First-aid measures


Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects are observed.

Eye contact:

Any material that contacts the eye should be washed out immediately with water. If easy to do, remove contact lenses.

Skin Contact:

Wash with soap and water. If skin irritation occurs, get medical attention.


Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards:

No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

CO2, dry chemical, foam, water spray, water fog.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:

Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

A solid stream of water will spread the burning material. Material creates a special hazard because it floats on water.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:

Recommend wearing self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Personal Protective Equipment must be worn, see Personal Protection Section for PPE recommendations. Ventilate area if spilled in confined space or other poorly ventilated areas.

Environmental Precautions:

Avoid release to the environment. Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Environmental manager must be informed of all major spillages. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Dike far ahead of larger spill for later recovery and disposal. Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material. If liquid is too viscous for pumping, scrape it up. Collect for salvage or disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Store away from incompatible materials.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control Parameters

Occupational Exposure Limits

None of the components have assigned exposure limits.

Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls:

No special requirements under ordinary conditions of use and with adequate ventilation.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

General information:

Please follow the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines below and refer to the appropriate EN standard where applicable. Use personal protective equipment as required.

Eye/face protection:

If contact is likely, safety glasses with side shields are recommended. Eye protection should meet the standards set out in EN 166.

Skin protection

Hand Protection:

Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier.


Because specific work environments and material handling practices vary, safety procedures should be specific for each intended application. The correct choice of protective gloves depends upon the chemicals being handled, and the conditions of work and use. Most gloves provide protection for only a limited time before they must be discarded and replaced (even the best chemically resistant gloves will break down after repeated chemical exposures). Gloves should be chosen in consultation with the supplier / manufacturer and taking account of a full assessment of the working conditions. For typical use and handling of chemical substances, gloves should meet the standards set out in EN 374. For applications involving mechanical risks with potential for abrasion or puncture, the standards set out in EN 388 should be considered. For tasks involving thermal hazards, the standards set out in EN 407 should be considered.

Break-through time:

Breakthrough time data are generated by glove manufacturers under laboratory test conditions and represent how long a glove can be expected to provide effective permeation resistance. It is important when following breakthrough time recommendations that actual workplace conditions are taken into account. Always consult with your glove supplier for up-to-date technical information on breakthrough times for the recommended glove type.

For continuous contact, we suggest gloves with a minimum breakthrough time of 240 minutes, or > 480 minutes if suitable gloves can be obtained. If suitable gloves are not available to offer that level of protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may be acceptable as long as appropriate glove maintenance and replacement regimes are determined and adhered to.

For short-term, transient exposures and splash protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may commonly be used. Therefore, appropriate maintenance and replacement regimes must be determined and rigorously followed.

Glove thickness:

For general applications, we recommend gloves with a thickness typically greater than 0.35 mm.

It is important to note that glove thickness is not the only predictor of glove resistance to a specific chemical, as the permeation efficiency of the glove will be dependent on the exact composition of the glove material. Therefore, glove selection should also be based on consideration of the task requirements and knowledge of breakthrough times.

Glove thickness may also vary depending on the glove manufacturer, the glove type and the glove model. Therefore, the manufacturers’ technical data should always be taken into account to ensure selection of the most appropriate glove for the task.

Note: Depending on the activity being conducted, gloves of varying thickness may be required for specific tasks. For example: Thinner gloves (down to 0.1 mm or less) may be required where a high degree of manual dexterity is needed. However, these gloves are only likely to give short duration protection and would normally be just for single use applications, before being disposed of. Thicker gloves (up to 3 mm or more) may be required where there is a mechanical (as well as a chemical) risk i.e. where there is abrasion or puncture potential.


Long sleeve shirt is recommended.

Respiratory Protection:

Consult with an industrial hygienist to determine the appropriate respiratory protection for your specific use of this material. A respiratory protection program compliant with all applicable regulations must be followed whenever workplace conditions require the use of a respirator. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space, for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.

Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is not normally required where there is adequate natural or local exhaust ventilation to control exposure.

In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

The correct choice of respiratory protection depends upon the chemicals being handled, the conditions of work and use, and the condition of the respiratory equipment.

Safety procedures should be developed for each intended application.

Respiratory protection equipment should therefore be chosen in consultation with the supplier/manufacturer and with a full assessment of the working conditions.

Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing to remove contaminants. Discard contaminated footwear that cannot be cleaned.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical Stability:

Material is stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:

Will not occur.

Conditions to avoid:

None known.

Incompatible Materials:

None known, avoid contact with reactive chemicals.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:

Thermal decomposition or combustion may generate smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and other products of incomplete combustion.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Disposal methods:

Treatment, storage, transportation, and disposal must be in accordance with applicable Federal, State/Provincial, and Local regulations.

Since emptied containers retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.

Contaminated Packaging:

Container packaging may exhibit hazards.
