**** SECTION 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION ****

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Appearance: Clear, colorless.
CAUTION! MAY CAUSE EYE AND SKIN IRRITATION. MAY CAUSE RESPIRATORY
AND DIGESTIVE TRACT IRRITATION. MAY CAUSE PULMONARY EDEMA.
Target Organs: Respiratory system.

Potential Health Effects
Eye:
Produces irritation, characterized by a burning sensation, redness,
tearing, inflammation, and possible corneal injury. Vapors may cause
eye irritation.
Skin:
May cause skin irritation.
Ingestion:
May cause irritation of the digestive tract.
Inhalation:
May cause respiratory tract irritation. Irritation may lead to
chemical pneumonitis and pulmonary edema.
Chronic:
Not available.

**** SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES ****

Eyes:
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes,
occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. Get medical aid
immediately. Do NOT allow victim to rub or keep eyes closed.
Skin:
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.
Ingestion:
Do NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4
cupfuls of milk or water. Get medical aid immediately. Call a poison
control center.
Inhalation:
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing,
give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.
No specific antidote exists.

**** SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES ****

General Information:
Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Wear
appropriate protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and
eyes. Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) to prevent
contact with thermal decomposition products. Substance is
noncombustible.
Extinguishing Media:
Use water only! Do not use carbon dioxide. Do not use dry chemical.
Autoignition Temperature: Noncombustible

Upper: 100

**** SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES ****

General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated
in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks:
Use water spray to disperse the gas/vapor. Absorb spill using an
absorbent, non-combustible material such as earth, sand, or
vermiculite.

**** SECTION 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE ****

Handling:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and
wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Do not get on skin
or in eyes. Do not ingest or inhale.
Storage:
Keep away from heat and flame. Do not store in direct sunlight.
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible
substances.

**** SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION ****

Engineering Controls:
Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne
concentrations below the permissible exposure limits. Exercise care
in cleaning all equipment before use with substance to prevent
contamination.
