Potential Health Effects

Primary Entry Routes: Skin, inhalation of vapors

Acute Effects

Inhalation: vapors are irritating to respiratory tract.

Eye: can cause burns

Skin: will cause burns: may cause sensitization after prolonged or repeated use.

Ingestion: will cause severe damage to the mucous membranes if swallowed.

Carcinogenicity IARC, NTP, and OSHA: IARC, NTP, and OSHA do not list any components of this product as a carcinogen.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long-Term Exposure: preexisting eye and skin disorders may be aggravated by exposure

Section 4 - First Aid Measures

Inhalation: Remove too fresh air; if breathing is labored seek medical attention.

Eye Contact: Flush with water for 15 minutes; seek medical attention

Skin Contact: remove with soap and water: if redness or rash develops seek medical attention: Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

Ingestion: do not induce vomiting; seek medical attention

After first aid, get appropriate in-plant, paramedic, or community medical support.

Section 5 - Fire-Fighting Measures

 

Flash Point: >280 F (138C)

Flash Point Method: PMCC

Flammability Classification: Non-Flammable

Extinguishing Media: Foam, Dry Chemical, and Carbon Dioxide

Unusual Fire or Explosion Hazards: None

Hazardous Combustion Products: Oxides of Nitrogen and Carbon when burned

Fire-Fighting Instructions: Do not release runoff from fire control methods to sewers or waterways.

Fire-Fighting Equipment: Because fire may produce toxic thermal decomposition products, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face piece operated in pressure-demand or positive-pressure mode.

 

 

 

 

 

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

Spill /Leak Procedures

Containment: Dike and contain for later disposal. Do not release into sewers or waterways.

Cleanup: Scrape up excess.

Regulatory Requirements: Follow applicable OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.120).

Section 7 - Handling and Storage

Handling Precautions: Avoid prolonged or repeated eye and skin contact. Avoid breathing vapors and use only with adequate ventilation. Use good general housekeeping procedures.

Storage Requirements: Store in Closed containers. Use only with adequate ventilation.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls / Personal Protection

Engineering Controls:

Ventilation: Provide general or local exhaust ventilation systems to maintain airborne concentrations below OSHA PELs (Sec. 2). Local exhaust ventilation is preferred because it prevents contaminant dispersion into the work area by controlling it at its source.

Administrative Controls:

Respiratory Protection: Seek professional advice prior to respirator selection and use. Follow OSHA respirator regulations (29 CFR 1910.134) and, if necessary, wear an MSHA/NIOSH-approved respirator. Select respirator based on its suitability to provide adequate worker protection for given working conditions, level of airborne contamination, and presence of sufficient oxygen. For emergency or nonroutine operations (cleaning spills, reactor vessels, or storage tanks), wear an SCBA. Warning! Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres. If respirators are used, OSHA requires a written respiratory protection program that includes at least: medical certification, training, fit testing, periodic environmental monitoring, maintenance, inspection, cleaning, and convenient, sanitary storage areas.

Protective Clothing/Equipment: Wear chemically protective gloves, boots, and aprons to prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact. Wear protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles, per OSHA eye- and face-protection regulations (29 CFR 1910.133). Contact lenses are not eye protective devices. Appropriate eye protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with contact lenses.

Safety Stations: Make emergency eyewash stations, safety/quick-drench showers, and washing facilities available in work area.

Contaminated Equipment: Separate contaminated work clothes from street clothes. Launder before reuse. Remove this material from your shoes and clean personal protective equipment.

Comments: Never eat, drink, or smoke in work areas. Practice good personal hygiene after using this material, especially before eating, drinking, smoking, using the toilet, or applying cosmetics.
