TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE

ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS

PREVENTION

FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING

FIRE Highly flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Powder, AFFF, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Vapour/air mixtures are explosive.
Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding).
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION Confusion. Cough. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Dullness. Headache.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Dry skin. Redness.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety spectacles 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 Nausea. Vomiting. (See Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give plenty of water to drink. Refer for medical attention.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
MOBILE LIQUID

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible. The vapour mixes well with air, explosive mixtures are easily formed. As a result of flow, agitation, etc., electrostatic charges can be generated.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 300 ppm as TWA, 500 ppm as STEL; A3 (confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans); (ACGIH 2004).


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

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

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes , the skin and the respiratory tract . If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system .

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The liquid defats the skin. The substance may have effects on the central nervous system and liver . This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans.

PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES

Boiling point: 20-200°C
Relative density (water = 1): 0.70 - 0.80
Solubility in water, g/100 ml:
none
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 3 - 4
Flash point: <-21°C
Auto-ignition temperature: about 250°C
Explosive limits, vol% in air: 1.3-7.1
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 2-7

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms.

N O T E S

Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. The product may contain additives which may alter the health and environmental effects.Card has been partly updated in April 2005. See section Physical properties.
NFPA Code: H1; F3; R0;
