TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

In case of fire in the surroundings: use appropriate extinguishing media.
EXPLOSION Risk of fire and explosion as a result of decomposition when heated.

In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE See EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE.
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION Sore throat. Cough.
Closed system and ventilation.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness. Pain. Burns
Safety goggles or face shield .
First rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •INGESTION Sore throat. Abdominal pain.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLORLESS TO LIGHT YELLOW, CLEAR, ODORLESS LIQUID

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes under the influence of

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh);
Carcinogen category: 2
(DFG 2008).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body in hazardous amounts through the skin, by inhalation of its aerosol,

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying.

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

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the kidneys. This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development.
