TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 38°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 38°C use a closed system, ventilation, and explosion-proof electrical equipment.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!

 •INHALATION Dizziness. Headache. Drowsiness. Nausea. Cough. Unconsciousness.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN Dry skin.
Protective gloves.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness.
Safety goggles, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Cough. Diarrhoea. Sore throat. Vomiting. (Further see Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Ventilation. 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. Do NOT wash away into sewer. (Extra personal protection: filter respirator for organic vapours of low boiling compounds.)
Fireproof. Separated from strong oxidants. Well closed.

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

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
Reacts with strong oxidants, causing fire and explosion hazard. Attacks some forms of plastics and rubber.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK not established.


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

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The vapour is slightly irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract . The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system . Exposure to high concentration of vapours may result in unconsciousness. Swallowing the liquid may cause aspiration into the lungs with the risk of chemical pneumonitis.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The liquid defats the skin. The substance may have effects on the central nervous system and liver , resulting in impaired functions .See Notes.

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

N O T E S
This is a mixture of n- and iso-paraffins, aromatic hydrocarbons and naphthenes. The contents of benzene is less than 0.1 % by volume. Depending on the raw material and the production processes, the composition and physical properties of this solvent can vary considerably. Environmental effects from the substance have not been investigated adequately. The symptoms of chemical pneumonitis do not become manifest until a few hours or even a few days have passed. Also consult ICSC 0361 Stoddard Solvent.
