Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: clear, colorless. Flash Point: 34 deg C.
Danger! Corrosive. Flammable
liquid and vapor. May cause liver and kidney damage. May cause cardiac
disturbances. May cause central nervous system effects. Causes eye and skin
burns. Causes digestive and respiratory tract burns. Hygroscopic. Lachrymator
(substance which increases the flow of tears). May cause allergic skin and
respiratory reaction. Harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. May
cause lung damage.
Target Organs: Kidneys, central nervous
Eye: Causes eye burns. May result in
corneal injury. Causes redness and pain. Lachrymator (substance which increases
the flow of tears).
Skin: Harmful if absorbed through the
skin. May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident
upon re-exposure to this material. Contact with the skin may cause severe
irritation and necrosis.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed.
May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with nausea, vomiting and
possible burns. May cause effects similar to those for inhalation exposure.
Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause
severe allergic respiratory reaction. Irritation may lead to chemical
pneumonitis and pulmonary edema. May cause liver and kidney damage. Causes
chemical burns to the respiratory tract. May cause heart disturbances, possibly
leading to cardiac arrest and death. May cause neurotoxic effects including
Chronic: Prolonged or repeated skin contact
may cause defatting and dermatitis. Repeated exposure may cause allergic
respiratory reaction (asthma).
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water
for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get
medical aid immediately. Do NOT allow victim to rub or keep eyes closed.
Skin: Immediately 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. Wash clothing before reuse.
Destroy contaminated shoes.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce
vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Get medical aid immediately.
Inhalation: Get medical aid
immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing,
give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Section 5 - Fire
Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear. Vapors may form an explosive mixture with air. Vapors can travel to a
source of ignition and flash back. Flammable Liquid. Can release vapors that
form explosive mixtures at temperatures above the flashpoint. Use water spray to
keep fire-exposed containers cool. Containers may explode in the heat of a fire.
Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use dry chemical,
carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. For large fires, use
water spray, fog, or alcohol-resistant foam. Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Wear a self contained breathing
apparatus and appropriate Personal protection. (See Exposure Controls, Personal
Protection section). Scoop up with a nonsparking tool, then place into a
suitable container for disposal. Remove all sources of ignition. Absorb spill
using an absorbent, non-combustible material such as earth, sand, or
vermiculite. Do not use combustible materials such as saw dust. Use a
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove
contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Use
spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Do not breathe dust, vapor,
mist, or gas. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Empty containers
retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Keep
container tightly closed. Do not ingest or inhale. Use only in a chemical fume
hood. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty
containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly
closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
incompatible substances. Flammables-area. Store protected from moisture.
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep
airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
