Section 2 - COMPOSITION, INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Risk Phrases: 10 48/23 62 67
Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Flammable. Toxic : danger of serious damage to health by prolonged exposure through inhalation. Possible risk of impaired fertility.
Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.
Potential Health Effects
Causes mild eye irritation. Causes minor transient corneal injury.
Causes mild skin irritation. May be absorbed through the skin in harmful amounts. Prolonged and/or repeated contact may cause defatting of the skin and dermatitis.
May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May cause central nervous system depression.
Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause narcotic effects in high concentration. May cause drowsiness, unconsciousness, and central nervous system depression.
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Chronic exposure produces peripheral neuropathy.
Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists.
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
Notes to Physician:
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. Vapors may form an explosive mixture with air.
Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Containers may explode in the heat of a fire. Flammable liquid and vapor. Vapors may be heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers. Water may be ineffective. For large fires, use water spray, fog or alcohol-resistant foam. Do NOT use straight streams of water.
Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Remove all sources of ignition.
Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Wash thoroughly after handling. Use only in a well-ventilated area.
Ground and bond containers when transferring material. 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 pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place.
Store in a tightly closed container. Flammables-area.
Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
Exposure Limits CAS# 591-78-6: United Kingdom, WEL - TWA: 5 ppm TWA; 21 mg/m3 TWA United Kingdom, WEL - STEL: 15 ppm STEL; 63 mg/m3 STEL United States OSHA: 100 ppm TWA; 410 mg/m3 TWA Belgium - TWA: 5 ppm VLE; 20 mg/m3 VLE France - VME: 5 ppm VME; 20 mg/m3 VME France - VLE: 8 ppm VLE; 35 mg/m3 VLE Germany: 5 ppm TWA; 21 mg/m3 TWA Germany: Skin absorber Japan: 5 ppm OEL; 20 mg/m3 OEL Malaysia: 5 ppm TWA; 20 mg/m3 TWA Netherlands: 0.5 ppm MAC; 2 mg/m3 MAC Spain: 5 ppm VLA-ED; 21 mg/m3 VLA-ED Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Wear chemical splash goggles.
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.
