Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.

Eye contact: Any material that contacts the eye should be washed out immediately with water. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Get medical attention if symptoms persist. If molten material contacts the eye, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin contact: Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. If burned by contact with hot material, cool molten material adhering to skin as quickly as possible with water, and see a physician for removal of adhering material and treatment of burn. Get medical attention.

Ingestion: Seek medical advice.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: Burns should be treated as thermal burns. The material will come off as healing occurs; therefore, immediate removal from the skin is not necessary.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray. Dry chemical. Carbon Dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Powdered material may form explosive dustair mixtures.

Special fire fighting procedures: Minimize dust generation and accumulation.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental Precautions: Not regarded as dangerous for the environment.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Sweep up and place in a clearly labeled container for chemical waste.

Notification Procedures: In the event of a spill or accidental release, notify relevant authorities in accordance with all applicable regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Avoid contact with molten material. Minimize dust generation and accumulation.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep container closed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls: Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

General information: Eye bath. Washing facilities.

Eye/face protection: It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize eye contact. Wear a face shield when working with molten material.

Skin protection

Hand Protection: It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize skin contact. When material is heated, wear gloves to protect against thermal burns.

Other: No data available.

Respiratory Protection: If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn. In the United States of America, if respirators are used, a program should be instituted to assure compliance with OSHA Standard 63 FR 1152, January 8, 1998. Respirator type: Air-purifying respirator with an appropriate, government approved (where applicable), air-purifying filter, cartridge or canister. Contact health and safety professional or manufacturer for specific information.

Hygiene measures: Observe good industrial hygiene practices.

Environmental Controls: No data available.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: None known.

Chemical Stability: Stable

Possibility of Hazardous Reactions: None known.

Conditions to Avoid: None at ambient temperatures.

Incompatible Materials: Strong oxidizing agents.

Hazardous Decomposition Products: Carbon Monoxide. Carbon Dioxide.

Disposal considerations

General information: No data available.

Disposal methods: Dispose of waste and residues in accordance with local authority requirements.
