Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move patient to fresh air. If not breathing, apply
artificial respiration. Seek urgent medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: In case of eye contact (including possible irritation from
vapour exposure) irrigate thoroughly with clean water,
including under the eyelids. If irritation persists, seek
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminate shoes and/or clothing and wash exposed
skin repeatedly with clean water. Intact skin: follow with
washing in soap and water. Damaged skin: apply a clean
dressing and seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Aspiration hazard: may cause severe lung damage. Do not give
anything by mouth: place drowsy, unconscious or vomiting
patient in recovery position with head and mouth downwards.
Seek urgent medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry chemical, CO2 or foam is recommended. Water spray may be
used to cool structures or control vapour, but water jet
may spread burning liquid.

Product arising from burning: Mainly carbon dioxide and carbonaceous soot; carbon monoxide
formation is possible in case of restricted air supply

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Firefighters should wear full protective clothing and self-
contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Remove possible ignition sources and avoid vapour
inhalation. Control spread of liquid spillage by prompt use
of inert absorbent (e.g. sand or vermiculite) and a
temporary bund if feasible: prevent entry into drains or
surface waters. Use foam of other suitable agent to
prevent fire. Absorb minor spillage: collect used absorbent
into suitable containers for controlled incineration.
Notify fire service in case of significant spillage.

Handling and storage

Handling: Can accumulate static charge by flow or agitation - bond and
ground all equipment before liquid transfer. Use of
explosion-proof equipment may be required. Open containers
slowly to relieve pressure. Empty containers may pose
explosion hazard. Take precautions against vapour hazard in
confined spaces.

Wear protective clothing (e.g. disposable, impermeable outer
garments to EN 340/EN 365), suitable, solvent-resistant
gloves (e.g. nitrile, to EN 386/374-2-374-3: consult
manufacturer data for breakthrough time) and eye/face
protection to EN 166. Respiratory protection (e.g. full-
face respirator to EN 136 or self-contained breathing
apparatus to EN 137) is required for elevated atmospheric
concentrations (e.g. approaching ACGIH TWA Limit, 100

Storage: Store only in approved and sealed containers in cool, dry
and well-ventilated areas away from ignition sources and
combustible materials. Storage areas should be posted with
suitable flammable hazard warnings. At the site of
production, bulk storage tanks compliant with API standards
650 and 653 are employed. At points of fuel distribution to
public or private vehicles, the substance is held in
suitable storage tanks (e.g. to EN 12285) or ADR-compliant
fuel storage units of UN-approved design.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Product is distributed from refinery in bulk tankers.
Subsequently transferred into storage tanks and then (via
pumps) to vehicle fuel tanks.

Transport code: Class 3, UN No. 1202 applies (ADR 2007, Note 2).
Transport: Bulk transport is likely to employ precautions suitable for
flammable liquids: however, under UN TDG rules flammable
labelling is applicable only to diesel fuel having a flash
point <61C.
