First-aid measures

Eyes: If in eyes rinse cautiously with water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses if easy to do so. Continue rinsing. Seek immediate medical attention.

Skin: Immediately take off all contaminated clothing. Wash thoroughly with water for at least 15 min. Wash contaminated clothes before reuse. Seek immediate medical attention.

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Monitor for respiratory distress. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing.

Ingestion: If swallowed rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting by use of emetics. Seek medical attention, call a poison center if you feel unwell.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
- Dry chemical powder, chemical foam, and alcohol resistant foam.
- Water spray can be effective in cooling down the fire-exposed containers and knocking down the vapours.
- Do not get water inside the containers prevent spread.

Advice for firefighters:
- Evacuate the area and fight fires from a safe distance.
- If tank, rail car or tank truck is involved in a fire, ISOLATE for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions; also, consider initial evacuation for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions or as per locally valid procedures.
- Fire-fighters must wear Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).
- Report any run-off of fire waters contaminated with this chemical as per local and federal procedures applicable.

Accidental release measures

Exposure Control and emergency control :
- Wear protective clothing, full boots, impervious gloves, safety glasses and Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).
- Alert Emergency Responders and tell them location and nature of hazard.
- Shut off all possible sources of ignition and increase ventilation.
- Avoid breathing vapors and contact with skin and eyes.

Environmental precautions:
- Clean up all spills immediately.
- Prevent spillage from entering drains or water and watercourses.
- Inform authorities in event of contamination of any public sewers, drains or water bodies.
- Collect recoverable product into labeled containers for recycling, recovery or disposal.
- Spread area with lime or absorbent material, and leave for at least 1 hour before washing.

Clean up methods:
- Clean up all tools and equipment.
- Decontaminate all equipment.

Handling and storage

In general materials which are toxic as stored or which can decompose into toxic components should be stored in cool, well- ventilated place out of sun, away from areas of high fire hazard and should be periodically inspected & monitored. Incompatible materials should be isolated.

Exposure controls / personal protection

NIOSH: None listed
ACGIH: None listed
OSHA - Final PELs: None listed

Engineering Controls:
Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the relevant airborne concentrations below their respective occupational exposure limits. Local ventilation is usually preferred. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.

Personal Protection:
Protective clothing should be selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration and quantity of the hazardous substances handled. The resistance of the protective clothing to chemicals should be ascertained with the respective supplier.

Hands: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Eyes: Safety goggles/ Chemical Safety glasses and Face shield.
Clothing: Boots and clothing to prevent contact.
Respirator: Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: 2-Amino-4-methylpyridine is off-white solid flakes like pyridine odor. It is slightly soluble in hot water.

Chemical stability:
- Stable under normal temperature and pressure.
- Hazardous Polymerization will not occur.

Conditions to avoid:
- Keep away from heat, sparks, flame, high temperature and incompatible chemicals.
