Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Eye: No specific first aid measures are required.  As a precaution,  remove contact lenses, if worn, and flush eyes with water.

Skin: Wash skin with water immediately and remove contaminated clothing and shoes.  Get medical attention if any symptoms develop.  To remove the material from skin, apply a waterless hand cleaner, mineral oil, or petroleum jelly. Then wash with soap and water.  Discard contaminated clothing and shoes or thoroughly clean before reuse.

Ingestion: No specific first aid measures are required.  Do not induce vomiting.  As a precaution, get medical advice.

Inhalation: No specific first aid measures are required.  If exposed to excessive levels of material in the air, move the exposed person to fresh air.  Get medical attention if coughing or respiratory discomfort occurs.

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) to extinguish flames.


Fire Fighting Instructions: This material will burn although it is not easily ignited.  For fires involving this material, do not enter any enclosed or confined fire space without proper protective equipment, including self-contained breathing apparatus.

Combustion Products:   Highly dependent on combustion conditions.  A complex mixture of airborne solids, liquids, and gases including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and unidentified organic compounds will be evolved when this material undergoes combustion.    Combustion may form oxides of: Sulfur, Calcium.

Accidental release measures

Protective Measures:  Eliminate all sources of ignition in vicinity of spilled material.

Spill Management:  Stop the source of the release if you can do it without risk.   Contain release to prevent further contamination of soil, surface water or groundwater.  Clean up spill as soon as possible, observing precautions in Exposure Controls/Personal Protection.  Use appropriate techniques such as applying non-combustible absorbent materials or pumping.  Where feasible and appropriate, remove contaminated soil.  Place contaminated materials in disposable containers and dispose of in a manner consistent with applicable regulations.

Reporting:  Report spills to local authorities as appropriate or required.

Handling and storage

Precautionary Measures: Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.  If this material is heated above 49C (120F) thermal burns can result from accidental contact with skin or eyes.  Wear appropriate personal protective equipment if engineering controls or work practices are not adequate to prevent contact.   Some heated materials may release fumes that are unpleasant and produce nausea and irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract.  Use in a well-ventilated area.   Wash thoroughly after handling.

General Handling Information: Avoid contaminating soil or releasing this material into sewage and drainage systems and bodies of water.

Static Hazard: Electrostatic charge may accumulate and create a hazardous condition when handling this material. To minimize this hazard, bonding and grounding may be necessary but may not, by themselves, be sufficient. Review all operations which have the potential of generating and accumulating an electrostatic charge and/or a flammable atmosphere (including tank and container filling, splash filling, tank cleaning, sampling, gauging, switch loading, filtering, mixing, agitation, and vacuum truck operations) and use appropriate mitigating procedures.

General Storage Information: In normal storage conditions, the shelf life of this product is 2 years.

Container Warnings: Container is not designed to contain pressure. Do not use pressure to empty container or it may rupture with explosive force.  Empty containers retain product residue (solid, liquid, and/or vapor) and can be dangerous.  Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose such containers to heat, flame, sparks, static electricity, or other sources of ignition.  They may explode and cause injury or death.  Empty containers should be completely drained, properly closed, and promptly returned to a drum reconditioner or disposed of properly.

Exposure controls / personal protection


Consider the potential hazards of this material (see Section 3), applicable exposure limits, job activities, and other substances in the work place when designing engineering controls and selecting personal protective equipment.  If engineering controls or work practices are not adequate to prevent exposure to harmful levels of this material, the personal protective equipment listed below is recommended.  The user should read and understand all instructions and limitations supplied with the equipment since protection is usually provided for a limited time or under certain circumstances. Refer to appropriate CEN standards.


Use in a well-ventilated area.


Eye/Face Protection: No special eye protection is normally required.  Where splashing is possible, wear safety glasses with side shields as a good safety practice.

Skin Protection: Wear protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Selection of protective clothing may include gloves, apron, boots, and complete facial protection depending on operations conducted.  Suggested materials for protective gloves include:  Viton, Nitrile Rubber, Silver Shield.

Respiratory Protection: No respiratory protection is normally required.   If user operations generate an oil mist, determine if airborne concentrations are below the occupational exposure limit for mineral oil mist.  If not, wear an approved respirator that provides adequate protection from the measured concentrations of this material.  For air-purifying respirators use a particulate cartridge.  No applicable occupational exposure limits exist for this material or its components.  

Stability and reactivity

Chemical Stability:   This material is considered stable under normal ambient and anticipated storage and handling conditions of temperature and pressure.

Conditions to Avoid:   Do not heat above flash point.

Incompatibility With Other Materials:   May react with strong acids or strong oxidizing agents, such as chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, etc.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:   None known (None expected)

Hazardous Polymerization:   Hazardous polymerization will not occur.

Disposal considerations

Use material for its intended purpose or recycle if possible.  This material, if it must be discarded, may meet the criteria of a hazardous waste as defined by international, country, or local laws and regulations.
