Hazards Identification

Emergency Overview
COMBUSTIBLE. - United States and Canada Vapor may cause flash fire. When heated above 100C/212F may undergo a self-accelerating, exothermic reaction which causes a rapid rise in temperature and pressure. Rupture of storage vessels and fire should be anticipated in case of such temperature. Harmful if absorbed through skin or if inhaled aspiration hazard if swallowed.

First Aid Measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If conscious, give one glass of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician immediately.
Skin Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Call a physician.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.

Fire Fighting Measures

Fire: Combustible
Explosion: Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Use CO2, foam or dry chemical. Avoid direct contact of liquid with water.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

Accidental Release Measures

Ventilate area of leak or spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Contain and recover liquid when possible. Collect liquid in an appropriate container or absorb with an inert material (e. g., vermiculite, dry sand, earth), and place in a chemical waste container. Do not use combustible materials, such as saw dust. Do not flush to sewer! For large spills, dike spilled material to ensure it does not reach waterways.

Handling and Storage

Keep in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Avoid all exposure to heat, sparks and open flems. Protect against physical damage. Separate from acids and alkalis. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (vapors, liquid); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before transferring material. Use explosion-proof electrical(ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Wash thoroughly after handling.

Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Engineering Controls: Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low. Eyes: Wear safety glasses with side shields
Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure
Clothing: Wear appropiate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure
Respirators: Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always us a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
