IV. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYE CONTACT:
Slightly irritating but does not injure eye tissue.
SKIN CONTACT:
Occasional brief contact with the liquid will not result in significant irritation unless evaporation is impeded. Frequent or prolonged contact may irritate and cause dermatitis. Low order of toxicity. Skin contact may aggravate and existing dermatitis condition.
INHALATION:
High vapor/aerosol concentrations (greater than approximately 700 PPM, attainable at elevated temperatures well above ambient) are irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract, and may cause headaches, dizziness, anesthesia, drowsiness, unconsciousness, and other central nervous system effects, including death. Negligible hazard at ambient temperature (-18 to 38 Deg. C; 0 to 100 Deg. F).
INGESTION:
Small amounts of this product aspirated into the respiratory system during ingestion or vomiting may cause mild to severe pulmonary injury, possibly progressing to death. Low order of toxicity.
V. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYE CONTACT:
Flush eyes with large amounts of water until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, get medical attention.
SKIN CONTACT:
Flush with large amounts of water; use soap if available. Remove grossly contaminated clothing, including shoes, and launder before reuse.
INHALATION:
Using proper respiratory protection, immediately remove the affected victim from exposure. Administer artificial respiration if breathing is stopped. Keep at rest. Call for prompt medical attention.
INGESTION:
If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Keep at rest. Get prompt medical attention.
VI. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
Flashpoint: 203 Deg. F.
Flammable Limits: LEL: 1.4 UEL: 8.9 @ 77 Deg. F. Note: Approximate
Autoignition Temperature: 410 Deg. F. Note: Approximate
GENERAL HAZARD:
Low hazard, liquid can burn upon heating to temperatures at or above the flashpoint. Static discharge, material can accumulate static charges which can cause an incendiary electrical discharge. "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, flame, sparks, static electricity, or other sources of ignition; THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH. Empty drums should be completely drained, properly bunged and promptly returned to a drum reconditioner, or properly disposed of.
FIRE FIGHTING:
Use water spray to cool fire exposed surfaces and to protect personnel. Isolate "fuel" supply from fire. Use foam, dry chemical, or water spray to extinguish fire. Avoid spraying water directly into storage containers due to danger of boilover. This liquid is volatile and gives off invisible vapors. Either the liquid or vapor may settle in low areas or travel some distance along the ground or surface to ignition sources where they might ignite or explode.
DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS UNDER FIRE CONDITIONS
No unusual.
VII. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
LAND SPILL
Eliminate sources of ignition. Prevent additional discharge of material, if possible to do so without hazard. For small spills implement cleanup procedures; for large spills implement cleanup procedures and, if in public area, keep public away and advise authorities. Also, if this product is subject to CERCLA reporting (see Section 15 REGULATORY INFORMATION) notify the National Response Center. Prevent liquid from entering sewers, watercourses, or low areas. Contain spilled liquid with sand or earth. Recover by pumping or with a suitable absorbent. Consult an expert on disposal of recovered material and ensure conformity to local disposal regulations.
WATER SPILL
Eliminate sources of ignition. Warn occupants and shipping in surrounding and downwind areas of fire and explosion hazard and request all to stay clear. Remove from surface by skimming or with suitable absorbents. If allowed by local authorities and environmental agencies, sinking and/or suitable dispersants may be used in non-confined waters. Consult an expert on disposal of recovered material and ensure conformity to local disposal regulations.
VIII. STORAGE AND HANDLING
ELECTROSTATIC ACCUMULATION HAZARD
Yes, use proper bonding and/or grounding procedure. Additional information regarding safe handling of products with static accumulation potential can be ordered by contacting the American Petroleum Institute (API) for API Recommended Practice 2003, entitled "Protection Against Ignitions Arising Out of Static, Lighting, and Stray Currents" (American Petroleum Institute, 1220 L Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20005), or the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) for NFPA 77 entitled "Static Electricity" (National Fire Protection Association, 1 Batterymarch Park, P.O. Box 9101, Quincy, MA 02269-9101).
STORAGE TEMPERATURE, °F:   Ambient
LOADING/UNLOADING TEMPERATURE, °F:  Ambient
STORAGE/TRANSPORT PRESSURE, MMHG:   Atmospheric
LOADING/UNLOADING VISCOSITY, CST: 2.4
STORAGE AND HANDLING:
Keep container closed. Handle and open containers with care. Store in a cool, well ventilated place away from incompatible materials. Do NOT handle or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. Protect material from direct sunlight. Material will accumulate static charges which may cause an electrical spark (ignition source). Use proper bonding and/or grounding procedures. Do NOT pressurize, cut, heat, or weld containers. Empty product containers may contain product residue. Do NOT reuse empty containers without commercial cleaning or reconditioning.
IX. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
EXPOSURE CONTROLS
The use of mechanical dilution ventilation is recommended whenever this product is used in a confined space, is heated above ambient temperatures, or is agitated.
PERSONAL PROTECTION
For open systems where contact is likely, wear safety glasses with side shields, long sleeves, and chemical resistant gloves. Where contact may occur, wear safety glasses with side shields. Where concentrations in air may exceed the limits given in this Section and engineering, work practice or other means of exposure reduction are not adequate, NIOSH/MSHA approved respirators may be necessary to prevent overexposure by inhalation.
