SAFETY IN USE RECOMMENDATIONS

All persons handling the above products should take precautions to avoid accidental ingestion (swallowing), inhaling of dust and skin and eye contact.

The Following recommendations should be observed:

  • Wear rubber (or surgical type) gloves at all times.
  • A full front covering apron or lab coat is recommended to protect against spillage.
  • Safety spectacles with transparent sides will provide eye protection.
  • Wherever possible avoid splashes and skin contact.
  • If large quantities of powder dyes are to be dispersed or aerosol mists produced, it is recommended that a filter pad-type nose and mouth mask is worn to avoid inhaling any dust or mist generated.

 


FIRST AID MEASURES

Eye Contact


Immediately irrigate with eyewash solution or copious amounts of clean water for at least 15 minutes.

Obtain medical attention if ill effects occur.


Ingestion


Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.

Do NOT induce vomiting.

Obtain medical attention if ill effects occur.


Inhalation


(N.B. This applies particularly to Procion Reactive Dyes)

Procion Reactive Dyes have been associated with cases of respiratory allergy by people handling them.
Generation and inhalation of dust, aerosol mists or droplets during handling should be avoided.
If an individual develops symptoms similar to hay fever or asthma, this person should seek medical advice.
It is recommended that people suffering from asthma or those with chronic chest disease should avoid handling these products.


Firefighting


In common with many organic compounds involved in a fire situation, dyes in powder form can produce flammable dust clouds in air.
If involved in a fire, like many organic compounds, noxious and toxic fumes may be emiitted and self-contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions.
