EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Appearance: Colorless Liquid. Flash Point 55 dg. F
WARNING! COMBUSTIBLE LIQUID. CA– USES RESPIRATORY TRACT IRRITATION.
MAY CA– USE SKIN IRRITATION. CA– USES EYE IRRITATION. MAY CA– USE EYE
IRRITATION. MAY CA– USE ALLERGIC SKIN REACTION. MAY CA– USE DIGESTIVE
TRACT IRRITATION. MAY CA– USE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DEPRESSION.
MAY BE ABSORBED THROUGH THE SKIN. MAY CA– USE KIDNEY DAMAGE.
Target organs: Kidneys, Central Nervous System, None.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
EYE:
May cause eye irritation. Produces irritation, characterized by a burning sensation,
redness, tearing, inflammation, and possible corneal injury.
SKIN:
May cause skin irritation. Prolonged and/or repeated contact may cause defatting
of skin and dermatitis. May cause irritation with pain and stinging, especially if
the skin is abraded.
INGESTION:
May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May cause gastrointestinal irritation
with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause kidney damage. May cause
Central Nervous System depression, characterized by excitement, followed by
headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea. Advanced stages may cause

collapse, unconsciousness, coma and possible death due to respiratory failure.
Expected to be a low ingestion hazard.
INHALATION:
Inhalation of high concentrations may cause Central Nervous System effects
characterized by headache, dizziness, unconsciousness and coma. May cause
respiratory tract irritation. Inhalation of vapor may cause respiratory tract irritation.
Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
CHRONIC:
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause defatting and dermatitis.
May cause allergic skin reaction in some individuals.
*** SECTION 4 – FIRST AID***
EYES:
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting
the upper and lower lids. Get medical aid. Get medical aid immediately.
SKIN:
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while
removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or
persists. Flush skin with plenty of soap and water.
INGESTION:
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything
by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately. Get medical aid if
irritation or symptoms occur.
INHALATION:
Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not
breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid
if cough or other symptoms appear.
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.
***SECTION 5 – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES***
GENERAL INFORMATION:
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand,
MSHA/NIOSH
(approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Vapors can travel to a source of ignition
and flash back. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Containers may
explode
in the heat of a fire. This chemical poses an explosion hazard.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:
For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. For
small fires, use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or chemical foam. Use water spray
to cool fire-exposed containers. Water may be ineffective.
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: 750 dg. F (398.89 dg. C)
FLASH POINT: 55 dg. F (12.78 dg. C)
NFPA RATING: Not published.
EXPLOSION LIMITS, LOWER: 2.0
UPPER: 12.7 @ 200
***SECTION 6 – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES***

GENERAL INFORMATION: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated
In Section 8.
SPILLS/LEAKS:
Absorb spill with inert material, ( e.g., dry sand or earth), then place into a chemical waste
container for disposal. Remove all sources of ignition.
***SECTION 7 – HANDLING AND STORAGE***
HANDLING:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands before eating. Remove contaminated clothing
and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Use spark-proof tools and explosion
proof equipment. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Empty containers retain product
residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze,
solder, drill, grind, or expose such containers to heat, sparks or open flames. Keep container
tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
STORAGE:
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep away from sources of ignition. Keep
container closed when not in use. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store in a cool,
dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
***SECTION 8 – EXPOSURE***
ENGINEERING CONTROLS:
Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control airborne levels. Use adequate
general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible
limits.
EXPOSURE LIMITS:

RESPIRATORS:

A NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying respirator with an organic vapor cartridge or canister
may be permissible under certain circumstances where airborne concentrations are
expected. A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI
Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator’s
use. Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1010.134. Always use a
NIOSH-approved respirator when necessary.
