EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN Redness. Pain.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention if skin irritation occurs.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety goggles. or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •INGESTION Burning sensation. Sore throat.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airbone concentration of the substance. Collect leaking liquid in sealable containers. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.
Separated from strong oxidants, acids and bases. Cool. Keep in the dark. Ventilation along the floor.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS TO YELLOW LIQUID.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. Reacts with strong oxidants, acids and bases.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: sensitization of skin (Sh); (DFG 2007).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
No indication can be given about the rate in which a harmful concentration in the air is reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the respiratory tract. The substance is severely irritating to the eyes and the skin.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
