2. COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: Clear, Colorless liquid.
IMMEDIATE CONCERNS: CAUTION! May cause eye and
EYES: Severe irritation and discomfort. Reversible
and/or irreversible corneal damage may occure.
SKIN: No significant effects beyond minor irritation
INGESTION: Gastrointestinal tract irritation and/or
discomfort is possible.
INHALATION: Respiratory tract irritation and/or
headaches possible. Significant systemic toxic effects are likely following
repeated exposure to high concentrations.
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Absorption, Inhalation,
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYES: Immediately flush eyes with plenty
of water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.
SKIN: Wash exposed area with mild soap
and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting. Danger
from aspirating into lungs exceeds short term toxic effects. Get immediate
INHALATION: Remove victim from area of
exposure. If unconscious, give oxygen. Give artificial respiration if not
breathing. Get immediate medical attention.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASHPOINT AND METHOD: ~(53°F)ASTM
FLAMMABLE LIMITS: 2 to 12
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not Available
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use dry chemical,
foam, or carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Vapor accumulations
may flash and/or explode if ignited. Keep ignition sources, open flames,
ect., away from thse fumes.
FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Proper respiratory
equipment to protect against the hazardous effects of combustion products
is recommended. Water in a straight hose stream may cause fire to spread
and should be used as a cooling medium only.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Extinguish all ignition sources and ventilate area. Evacuate all non-essential
personnel. Blanket spill with alcohol resistant foam to limit evaporation.
Dike area to contain spill and clean up by absorbing on inert absorbent
or by other means. Liquid may be flammable even when mixed with water unless
heavily diluted (>5:1). Do not flush into sewers or natural waterways.
Contain material as described above and call the local fire or police
department for immediate emergency assistance.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Use appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section
8. Handle in a well ventilated area.
Store unopened containers under cool, dry and ventilated conditions.
Keep away from heat, sparks and flame.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
OSHA HAZARDOUS COMPONENTS (29 CFR 1910.1200)
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: If current ventilation
practices are not adequate to maintain airborne concentrations below the
established exposure guidelines, additional ventilation or exhaust systems
may be required. Where explosive mixtures may be present, electrical systems
safe for such locations must be used.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
EYES AND FACE: Wear safety glasses with side shields
or goggles when handling this material.
SKIN: To prevent any contact, wear impervious
protective clothing such as neoprene or butyl rubber gloves, apron, boots
or whole bodysuit, as appropriate.
RESPIRATORY: Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirators
when vapors or mist concentrations exceed permissible exposure limits.
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: Chemical resistant boots,
apron, etc. as necessary to prevent contamination of clothing and skin
