First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: The substance has a low vapour pressure and there should not
be a health concern regarding inhalation. The following
measures should be used in general.

If inhaled, removed person/s to fresh air. If not breathing,
give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult,
give oxygen.

Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately and for as long as possible with plenty of
water. Eyelids should be held away from the eyeball to
ensure thorough rinsing.

Seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash immediately with soap and water.

Remove all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off with
plenty of soap and water. Seek medical advice if irritation

Launder clothes before reuse.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Immediately give two glasses of
water to be drunk in small amounts at a time. Never give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Call a physician.

If vomiting occurs spontaneously, lower head below the waist
to prevent fluid from entering the lungs.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Small fire: Use DRY chemical powder.

Large fire: Use water spray, fog or foam. Do not use water j

Product arising from burning: Gases evolved are carbon oxides (CO, CO2) nitrogen oxides
(NO, NO2, NOx) and water.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Under fire conditions, as with any fire involving chemicals,
responders must use self contained breathing apparatus
(SCBA), wear fire resistance clothing such as bunker gear or
fire proximity suit as required by national standards.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Small spills:

Absorb with an inert material and put the material in an
appropriate waste container.

Large spills:

Stop source of spill. Isolate spill area and restrict non-
essential personnel. All personnel involved in spill

cleanup should follow appropriate industrial hygeine
practices. Soak up liquid with a suitable absorbent, for
example, clay or kitty litter. Sweep up absorbed material
and place in a chemical waste container for disposal. Use
water and detergent to clean residual material. Do not allow
contaminated water to enter waterways or sewers.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulation.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Storage: Requirements for storage rooms and vessels:

Open containers must be carefully resealed and kept upright
to prevent leakage.

Containers should be kept closed when not in use.

Advise on storage assembly:

None known

Further information on storage conditions:

Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 40 pound pail (18 kg pail), not standard container available
only with extended lead time.

425 pound metal drum (193 kg) lined drum.

2550 pound tote (1160 kg, totes are 330 or 275 gallon based
on density of product).

Special provisions / remarks
Transport code: None.
Transport: The substance is not considered a hazardous substance under
any mode of transport, therefore it is not regulated. Drums
and pails containing the substance are securely placed on
pallets and moved within factories and warehouses by HiLO or
forklift trucks. Totes are also moved safely by HiLO and
forklift trucks. Material moved internationally is typically
placed in a sealed freight container, which can be
transported by road, rail or ship.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: The substance is stable under normal conditions.

The substance is expected to be incompatible with strong
acids, strong bases, strong oxidants and high heat.

Chemical reaction with water: Not applicable.

Dust explosion: Not applicable to liquid.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Industry / skilled trades recycle used oil. Many State /
municipalities require oil recycling and provide facilities
for DIY users to return used oil. Used oil recycling results
in the oil being re-refined into lubricating oil basestock
or being burned for energy recovery (taken from (API site)).

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: If used oil or the neat substance is disposed of, it is
incinerated or burned for energy recovery.

Product drums are sent to reconditioners who typically
"burn" the drums to remove residual material.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None known.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The public is encouraged to recycle used oil. Commercial
product containers (i.e plastic quarts) with motor oil with
ca. 0.25-1.0% Vanlube 289 may be recycled or placed in the
municipal solid stream (landfilled or waste to energy

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Vanlube 289 could accidently or intentionally be poured, by
DIY enthusiasts, on the ground, placed in a rubbish bin,

sent out to landfill.

Idealy, used preparations are disposed of by incineration.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Idealy, used preparations are disposed of by incineration.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: None known.
