First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Symptomatic treatment

Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate promptly with clean water

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use water mist, carbon dioxide or foam. Although treated to

minimise dust formation, this product may produce flammable

dust clouds in air; every care should be taken to prevent

dust formation.

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon, nitrogen and sulfur

oxides together with hydrogen chloride gas and soot

Product determined by test: N

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Damp down, sweep up, and shovel into containers for disposal

by incineration

Handling and storage

Handling: Use normal standards of good housekeeping to avoid

ingestion,skin and eye contact,and, in particular,the

inhalation of dust.Respirators should be used if dust is


Storage: No special precautions

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Not given, 6th amendment notification.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from minor spillages, discharges to effluent or

from dyed fabrics is not economically feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: If diluted to a level at which there is no visible

colouration of the effluent, no harmful effect on aquatic

life is likely. Disposal at a landfillsite is possible

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: May be rendered harmless by burning under carefully

controlled conditions. Waste gas treatment to remove

nitrogen and sulfur oxides together with hydrogen chloride

gas should be used

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: From the data presented in section 5 and in the literature

(Brown et al, Chemosphere, 1981, 10(3), 245-261), the

substance is unlikely to have any adverse effects on the

aerobic or anaerobic processes within a sewage works. It is

unlikely to be appreciably degraded aerobically nor to be

adsorbed significantly onto sludge and thus will probably

pass through an effluent treatment plant mainly unchanged.

However, it is extensively degraded under anaerobic

conditions and therefore any which is adsorbed on sludge

during passage through a sewage works is likely to be

biodegraded in the digester.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance itself will not enter the public domain
