Handling AdBlue®

AdBlue consists primarily of water (approx. 67.5% water and 32.5% urea). The fluid is not flammable but should be handled with care since it can irritate the eyes and skin.

Points to remember when handling

Avoid inhaling vapour as well as contact with skin and eyes. Preferably use gloves that prevent irritation to sensitive skin when handling the fluid.


Action for first aid:
  • For inhalation - get fresh air.
  • For skin contact - wash the skin with soap and water.
  • For contact with the eyes - rinse immediately with a lot of water.
  • For ingestion - rinse the mouth thoroughly. Do not induce vomiting.

Seek medical attention if the discomfort remains or if a large quantity has been ingested.

Action in the event of a spill

AdBlue spilled on the ground, the car or painted surfaces must be rinsed thoroughly with water. Avoid releasing into the drainage system.


AdBlue must be stored in tightly sealed original packaging at a temperature above -11 °C (12 °F) and below 30 °C (86 °F). The fluid must not be stored in direct sunlight.

AdBlue freezes at -11 °C (12 °F) but can be used again when the solution has thawed.
