Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
DO NOT handle, store or open near an open flame, sources of heat or sources of ignition. Protect
material from direct sunlight. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded.
Use good personal hygiene practices Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Do not get
this material in contact with eyes. Do not get this material in contact with skin. Do not get this
material on clothing. Wear personal protective equipment. Do not use in areas without adequate
ventilation. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash thoroughly after handling. "Empty" containers retain
product residue (liquid or vapor) and can be dangerous. Do not reuse empty containers. Organics
can obtain an electrostatic charge during processing activities including: storage, mixing, filtering,
or pumping which may represent a spark hazard and, therefore, a fire hazard. Also, a sudden
release of such materials from storage or process equipment particularly at elevated temperatures,
and/or pressures, can result in ignitions from static absent any apparent ignition source.
Flashpoint and autoignition values obtained from standard test conditions may not be applicable to
other situations and, thus, the safe use of this material in any process should be reviewed by one
familiar with both the storage, processing conditions and this material. Note: materials that are
static accumulators may have such high potential differences created that such a situation may
result in a discharge as sparks capable of causing ignition of organic vapors. Such discharges can
occur from insulated conductors (plant items, drums), bulk liquids, mists and insulating plastic
materials.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Use care in handling/storage. The pressure in sealed containers can increase under the influence
of heat. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. This material can accumulate static charge
which may cause spark and become an ignition source. Prevent electrostatic charge buildup by
using common bonding and grounding techniques. Store in a wellventilated place. Keep container
tightly closed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Ventilation should be sufficient to
effectively remove, and prevent buildup of, any vapors, dusts, or fumes that may be generated
during handling or thermal processing. In order to ensure appropriate electrical safety practices
are followed, consult applicable standards. These may include guidelines such as the National Fire
Protection Association [NFPA] 70, "The National Electrical Code" and NFPA 499, "Recommended
Practice for the Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for
Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas ". NOTE: since this material's vapors, dust or
fumes can form explosive mixtures in air, ensure that any potential areas where explosions may
occur are designed to minimize potential damage. For recommendations to prevent such
explosions and associated damage, consult applicable guidelines such as NFPA 69, "Standard on
Explosion Prevention Systems" and/or NFPA 68, "Guide for Venting Deflagrations".

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

General information
Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid contact with skin.

Eye/face protection
Avoid contact with eyes. Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). If splashes are likely to
occur, wear: Faceshield. Eye wash fountain is recommended.

Skin protection
Wear protective gloves. Do not get this material in contact with skin. Wear suitable protective clothing.

Respiratory protection
Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. If engineering controls do not maintain airborne
concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level
(in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be
worn. Use a positivepressure airsupplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled
release, exposure levels are not known, or any other circumstances where airpurifying respirators
may not provide adequate protection.

Hygiene measures
Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Wash hands after handling and before eating. Handle in
accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
