Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
  EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Flammable. Harmful by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed. May impair fertility. May cause harm to the unborn child.
Potential Health Effects
Eye:
Causes eye irritation.
Skin:
May cause mild skin irritation. Prolonged and/or repeated contact may cause irritation and/or dermatitis. If absorbed, causes symptoms similar to those of ingestion. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin. Substance is readily absorbed through the skin.
Ingestion:
May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May cause liver and kidney damage. Exposure may cause anemia and other blood abnormalities. May be harmful if swallowed. May cause central nervous system depression.
Inhalation:
May cause respiratory tract irritation. Inhalation overexposure may lead to central nervous system depression, producing effects such as dizziness, headache, confusion, incoordination, nausea, weakness, and loss of consciousness. Extreme exposures may cause other CNS effects including death.
Chronic:
2-Ethoxyethanol may be a teratogen in humans since it has been shown to be a teratogen in animals. It may damage the testes and decrease fertility in males.

Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
  Eyes: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical aid.
Skin:
In case of contact, flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops and persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion:
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Inhalation:
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician:

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. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Flammable liquid and vapor. Containers may explode when heated.
Vapors are heavier than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Vapors can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
Extinguishing Media:
Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam. Solid streams of water may be ineffective and spread material.

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. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Remove all sources of ignition.
Provide ventilation. Approach spill from upwind.

Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
  Handling:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. 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. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing vapor or mist.
Storage:
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Flammables-area. Do not store in aluminum containers. Store protected from light and air. Containers should be dated when opened and tested periodically for the presence of peroxides. Should crystals form in a peroxidizable liquid, peroxidation may have occurred and the product should be considered extremely dangerous. In this instance, the container should only be opened remotely by professionals. All peroxidizable substances should be stored away from heat and light and be protected from ignition sources.

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
  Engineering Controls:
Use process enclosure, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to control airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower.
Exposure Limits CAS# 110-80-5: United Kingdom, WEL - TWA: 10 ppm TWA; 37 mg/m3 TWA United Kingdom, WEL - STEL: 30 ppm STEL; 111 mg/m3 STEL United States OSHA: 200 ppm TWA; 740 mg/m3 TWA Belgium - TWA: 5 ppm VLE; 18 mg/m3 VLE France - VME: 5 ppm VME; 19 mg/m3 VME Germany: 5 ppm TWA; 19 mg/m3 TWA Germany: Skin absorber Japan: 5 ppm OEL; 18 mg/m3 OEL Malaysia: 5 ppm TWA; 18 mg/m3 TWA Netherlands: 5 ppm MAC; 19 mg/m3 MAC Russia: 5 mg/m3 TWA Spain: 5 ppm VLA-ED; 18 mg/m3 VLA-ED Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Wear chemical splash goggles.
Skin:
Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Clothing:
Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Respirators:
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Use a NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator if exposure limits are exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are experienced.
