First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move exposed person to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment. In
case of indisposition seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water. If irritation occurs, seek
medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment. In case of indisposition seek medical
advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, dry powder, foam and carbon dioxide may be used.

Product arising from burning: COx, NOx, SO2 and other toxic gases.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protection clothing (see 2.3.1). Sweep up (wet
powders with water), for liquids absorb using a suitable
absorbent material (eg. kieselguhr, sand, saw dust etc...)
Transfer to labelled containers and dispose of by
incineration in accordance with local regulations. Wash
spill site with water. Prevent release to water courses.

Handling and storage

Handling: Ensure adequate ventilation. Observe the usual precautions

for handling chemicals. If the substance is handled as

powder, avoid inhalation and contact with skin and eyes.

Wear suitable protective gloves, safety goggles and a dust

mask. Use equipment for handling powders or other

appropriate engineering controls.

Storage: The substance should be stored in well sealed and secure

containers in adequate rooms at room temperature. Avoid

dust residue outside the containers.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Polyethylene-drum in sealed cardboard-package.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Normal application results in the consumption of approx.

85% by irreversible binding to the cellulose / cotton

fibres. Recovery for recycling of the remaining substance

is not reasonably practicable.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No suitable method known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not suitable for deposit in landfill site.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Code 661: Incinerator with flue gas scrubbing.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Code 641: Removal by controllled discharge to a waste water

treatment plant.

It is estimated that approx. 15% of the total quantity used
is discharged into internal industrial effluents a highly
diluted solution. A purification of the waste water in a
waste water treatment plant is recommended.

The dyestuff should be used in a well equiped dye house. If
necessary, the waste water can be purified prior to the
waste water treatment by membrane filtration or by
floculation with cationic agents or by treatment with ozone.

The most effective method is the membrane filtration: more
than 99% of the remaining dyestuff can be removed from the
waste water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
