TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Powder, AFFF, foam, carbon dioxide. NO water.
EXPLOSION Above 38C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 38C use a closed system, ventilation, and explosion-proof electrical equipment. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding).
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. Combat fire from a sheltered position.
EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION Confusion. Cough. Headache. Shortness of breath. Sore throat.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN Redness. Pain.
Protective gloves.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety spectacles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Nausea. Vomiting.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. Personal protection: self-contained breathing apparatus.
Fireproof. Separated from strong oxidants, food and feedstuffs . Cool. Keep under inert gas. Store only if stabilized.
Airtight. Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
UN Hazard Class: 3
UN Subsidiary Risks: 6.1

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
WHITE TO COLOURLESS LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
As a result of flow, agitation, etc., electrostatic charges can be generated.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance may polymerize. The substance decomposes on burning producing acrid smoke and irritating fumes . Reacts with strong oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 5 ppm (Ceiling value); (ACGIH 2004).
OSHA PEL: none
NIOSH REL: C 5 ppm (25 mg/m3)
NIOSH IDLH: N.D. See: IDLH INDEX


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

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance irritates the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the liver and kidneys.

Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: 560
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.1
Flash point: 38C o.c
ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

N O T E S
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure. An added stabilizer or inhibitor can influence the toxicological properties of this substance, consult an expert. Card has been partly updated in October 2005. See section Emergency Response.
