Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Seek immediate medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate with clean water or isotonic saline for 15 minutes.

Seek medical attention urgently.

Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing, wash skin with soap and water.

Seek medical attention if symptoms are apparent.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry powder/foam, carbon dioxide or water spray.

Product arising from burning: The substance is not combustible and will not burn if

involved in a fire. The residue, ash or char left after a

fire may have catalytic properties and may promote the

re-ignition of flammable materials and vapours.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective equipment and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear full personal protective equipment including chemical

resistant gloves, goggles and face mask.

Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material

(eg sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste

containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.

Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in

the same way as the original substance containers.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent. Collect

waste for recovery at a licensed recycling plant. Do not

wash spillage to drains.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local

regulations by incineration, or send to a metal  recovery


Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure by skin,

eye and inhalation exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard prEN374

Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard prEN166

Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be

used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure,

be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the appropriate

international standards, such as a dust mask conforming to

EN149 FFP1.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store in a dry well ventilated area, away from sources of


Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: UN specification plastic "Mauser" type containers.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported

Chemical reaction with water: None reported

Dust explosion: There is no potential dust explosion hazard for this

inorganic powder.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from

minor discharges or accidental discharge is preferable.

However, such waste material can be disposed of by

incineration or landfill.

Larger spillages of uncontaminated material can be sent for

recovery at a precious metal re-cycling plant.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No chemical, or environmental treatment is practicable to

neutralise the hazardous health properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with

inert material (eg sand or soil) may be disposed of by

landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local


Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning

under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and

nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to

the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,

adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be


Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable, the substance will not enter the punlic
