Section 2 - COMPOSITION, INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Risk Phrases: 11 14 36/37/38
Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Highly flammable. Reacts violently with water. Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin.Moisture sensitive.Highly flammable.Water-reactive.
Potential Health Effects
Causes eye irritation. When substance becomes wet or comes in contact with moisture of the mucous membranes, it will cause irritation. May cause chemical conjunctivitis and corneal damage.
Contact with skin causes irritation and possible burns, especially if the skin is wet or moist. May cause cyanosis of the extremities.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The toxicological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated. Ingestion of large amounts may cause CNS depression.
Causes respiratory tract irritation. The toxicological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated. Aspiration may lead to pulmonary edema. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation.
Olfactory fatigue may occur. May cause burning sensation in the chest.
Effects may be delayed.
Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. If water-reactive products are embedded in the skin, no water should be applied. The embedded products should be covered with a light oil.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Wash mouth out with water.
Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Notes to Physician:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Water Reactive. Material will react with water and may release a flammable and/or toxic gas. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Dust can be an explosion hazard when exposed to heat or flame.
Flammable solid. May ignite or explode on contact with steam or moist air. May burn rapidly with flare burning effect. May re-ignite after fire is extinguished. Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flame. May re-ignite after fire is extinguished. Containers may explode if exposed to fire.
Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. Water may be ineffective.
If water is the only media available, use in flooding amounts. DO NOT USE WATER! Do NOT get water inside containers. Do NOT use straight streams of water. Contact professional fire-fighters immediately.
Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out.
Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Scoop up with a nonsparking tool, then place into a suitable container for disposal. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Remove all sources of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool.
Provide ventilation. Do not expose spill to water. Do not get water inside containers.
Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Do not allow water to get into the container because of violent reaction. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Avoid breathing dust, vapor, mist, or gas. 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.
Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Do not allow contact with water. Use only in a chemical fume hood. Wash clothing before reuse. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames. Keep from contact with moist air and steam.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place.
Store in a tightly closed container. Keep away from water.
Flammables-area. Store protected from moisture.
Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment. Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low. Use only under a chemical fume hood.
Exposure Limits CAS# 14593-46-5: Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.
Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
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.
