Risk Phrases: 10 36/38 7
Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Flammable. Irritating to eyes and skin. May cause fire.
Potential Health Effects
Causes eye irritation. Lachrymator (substance which increases the flow of tears).
Causes skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin.
May cause irritation of the digestive tract.
May cause respiratory tract irritation. May be harmful if inhaled.
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.
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
Do not induce vomiting. Get medical aid. 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.
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. Strong oxidizer. Contact with other material may cause fire. Will burn if involved in a fire. Flammable liquid and vapor.
Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
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.
Use a spark-proof tool.
Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Avoid breathing dust, vapor, mist, or gas. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid mechanical shock and friction.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Do not store near combustible materials. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a dry area.
Store at around 20C. Keep away from reducing agents.
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.
Exposure Limits CAS# 78-63-7: Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Not available.
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.
