Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

First-aid measures after inhalation : Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing.
First-aid measures after skin contact : Gently wash with plenty of soap and water. If irritation persists, consult a doctor.
First-aid measures after eye contact : Immediately flush eyes thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact
lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Immediately call a POISON
First-aid measures after ingestion : Rinse mouth out with water. Get immediate medical advice/attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media : Water spray or fog. Carbon dioxide. Foam. Dry chemical. Dry powder. Sand.
Unsuitable extinguishing media : Use of heavy stream of water may spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Fire hazard : Vapors generated from overheating/melting/decomposition may be flammable and may
cause fire/explosion if source of ignition is present.
Explosion hazard : Potential dust explosion hazard. When dust becomes airborne and is exposed to an ignition
source, sufficient combustible/flammable dust may exist to burn in the open or explode if
confined. Local exhaust and general room ventilation are both essential to prevent
accumulation of flammable vapour or dust mixtures.
Hazardous decomposition products in case of fire : Carbon oxides (CO, CO2). Metallic oxides. Metallic peroxides. Toxic fumes.

Advice for firefighters

Firefighting instructions : Fight fire from safe distance and protected location. Use water spray or fog for cooling exposed containers. Avoid raising powdered materials into airborne dust, creating an explosion hazard. Apply aqueous extinguishing media carefully to prevent frothing/steam
explosion. Exercise caution when fighting any chemical fire. Prevent fire fighting water from entering the environment.
Protection during firefighting : Do not attempt to take action without suitable protective equipment. Complete protective clothing. Self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
General measures : No flames, no sparks. Eliminate all sources of ignition.
Emergency procedures for non-emergency personnel: Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing dust. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Remove ignition sources. Do not attempt to take action without suitable protective equipment. For further information refer to "Exposure controls/personal protection".

Emergency procedures for emergency responders : No additional requirement.

Environmental precautions
Avoid release to the environment. Notify authorities if product enters sewers or public waters.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
For containment : Sweep up or vacuum up the product. Avoid creating or spreading dust.
Methods for cleaning up : Dispose of materials or solid residues at an authorized site.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Precautions for safe handling : Avoid all contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Ensure good ventilation of the work station.
Wear personal protective equipment. Avoid raising powdered material due to explosion
hazard. Prevent the build-up of electrostatic charge. Use only non-sparking tools. Handling
this product may result in electrostatic accumulation. Use proper grounding procedures. The
plastic packaging film used to secure bags of material on pallets can also develop static
electricity -- remove packaging film in an area free from ignitable vapors/dust. Avoid
breathing dust.
Hygiene measures : Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Always wash hands after handling the product.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Storage conditions : Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Store in a dry, cool area. Store at room temperature. Protect from moisture. May polymerize on exposure to temperature rise. Keep away from sources of ignition.
Incompatible materials : Strong reducing agents. Strong oxidizing agents.
Storage temperature : 10 – 32 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
Ensure good ventilation of the work station. Safety shower. Eye fountain.

Hand protection:

Protective gloves. Do not use natural rubber gloves. Product used with solvents : wear thick (> 0.5 mm) nitrile gloves. Replace gloves immediately when torn or any change in appearance (dimension, colour, flexibility, etc) is noticed.

Eye protection: Chemical goggles or face shield

Skin and body protection: Wear suitable protective clothing

Respiratory protection: Appropriate dust or mist respirator should be used if airborne particles are generated when handling this material.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Unstable. Inhibitor usually added

Chemical stability: Stable under use and storage conditions as recommended in section 7.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: May ignite spontaneously if exposed to air. Dust may form explosive mixture in air. May polymerize. To avoid thermal decomposition, do not
overheat. Thermal decomposition products are produced at elevated temperatures and these may be flammable.
Conditions to avoid: Avoid the build-up of electrostatic charge. Avoid dust formation. High temperature. Direct sunlight. Sparks. Open flame.
Incompatible materials: Strong oxidizing agents. Strong reducing agents.
Hazardous decomposition products: Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous decomposition products should not be produced.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods : Dispose of in accordance with the European Directives on waste and hazardous waste.
Empty containers should be taken for recycling, recovery or waste in accordance with local
Product/Packaging disposal recommendations : Dispose of contents/container to hazardous or special waste collection point, in accordance with local, regional, national and/or international regulation.
European List of Waste (LoW) code : According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes are not product specific, but application specific Waste codes should be assigned by the user based on the aplication for which the product was used.
