Propellants Emergency Information
For help with hydrazine emergencies involving Arch products, we have developed the Arch Chemical Emergency Action Network (ACEAN®).

After you've provided some basic information (your name, location, telephone, reasons for requesting assistance, products involved, you'll be asked to stand by your phone and await a call from an ACEAN® technical expert or Response Team Leader who is experienced with hydrazine and knows its properties and characteristics. He or she will be able to advise you on immediate action to be taken and on how to deal with almost any emergency.
