Intended use and applicationSee more

Isobutyraldehyde makes a feed for the synthesis of alcohols, acids, amines and esters. It is used in the chemical processes for the production of plasticisers, pharmaceuticals, crop protection products, synthetic resins, fragrances, solvents and various additives which are used in numerous branches of the industry (antioxidants, wetting agents, perfume components, improving agents, etc.). Isobutyraldehyde has been registered as a transported isolated intermediate. Pursuant to the REACH Regulation, it must be used for chemical processing in order to be transformed into another substance only.

Packaging and transportSee more

Isobutyraldehyde is available in bulk shipments, in stainless steel rail tank cars or road tankers, and/or in tank-containers which have been approved for that type of cargo.

Other types of containers are also allowable, if they protect the product sufficiently to maintain its quality, and if they provide safety in transport, storage, handling and use. In that case, the client should:

  • Submit the valid certificate which permits the use of that type of containers in storage and transport, in accordance with RID/ADR.
  • Place marking on the containers, in accordance with applicable regulations.
StorageSee more
Requirements for warehouse structures:
  • The requirements of Directive 94/9/EC must be satisfied within the equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX).
  • The provisions of Directive 1999/92/EC must be adhered to within the minimum requirements for improving the safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
  • Keep containers tightly closed, in cool and well ventilated places.
  • Local exhaust ventilation systems, to eliminate vapours from the places of their emission, and general ventilation systems in rooms.
  • Liquid-impervious floors which make it possible to collect the spilled material and prevent its entry to the sewage system.
Storage conditions:
  • Store in leak-proof tanks with nitrogen blanketing.
  • Use non-sparking tools only and ex-proof equipment.
  • Do not smoke and keep open flame devices away.
  • Eliminate any ignition sources.
  • Store under neutral blanketing, e.g. nitrogen blanketing.
  • Fire-extinguishers should be readily available in storage rooms.
  • Use under strictly controlled conditions only, in accordance with the Regulation (EC) № 1907/2006, Art. 18(4).
