First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration.
Consult a physician.
Skin contact: Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing. If irritation
develops, get medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Do not take clothing
home to be laundered.
Eye contact: Rinse with plenty of water. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.
Ingestion: Immediate medical attention is required. Drink two glasses of water. Never give anything
by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Thermal decomposition Carbon oxides
Suitable extinguishing
Use the following extinguishing media when fighting fires involving this
polar solvent (alcohol) foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical
Water spray
Specific hazards during fire fighting: Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back.
Heated material can form flammable or explosive vapors with air. Closed containers may rupture via
pressure build-up when exposed to fire or extreme heat.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and
protective suit.
Further information: Move containers promptly out of fire zone. If removal is impossible, cool
containers with water spray.
Remain upwind.
Do not breathe fumes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Appropriate protective equipment must be worn when handling a spill of this material.
Methods for cleaning up
Keep spectators away.
Avoid breathing vapor.
Ventilate the area.
Floor may be slippery; use care to avoid falling.
Contain spills immediately with inert materials (e.g., sand, earth).
Transfer liquids and solid diking material to separate suitable containers for recovery or disposal.
CAUTION: Keep spills and cleaning runoff out of municipal sewers and open bodies of water.

Handling and storage

Further information on storage conditions: CONTAINERS MAY BE HAZARDOUS WHEN EMPTY.
Since emptied containers retain product residue follow all MSDS and label warnings even after
container is emptied.
Storage conditions: Material can burn; limit indoor storage to approved areas equipped with
automatic sprinklers. Ground all metal containers during storage and handling. Keep containers
tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store away from excessive heat (e.g.
steampipes, radiators), from sources of ignition and from reactive materials.
Storage temperature: 15 - 38 °C
Other data: Keep in a dry place.
Further information:
Vapors can be evolved when material is heated during processing operations. See SECTION 8,
Exposure Controls/Personal Protection, for types of ventilation required.
Ground all containers when transferring material.
Wash after handling and shower at end of work period.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Eye protection: Use chemical splash goggles and face shield (ANSI Z87.1 or approved equivalent).
Eye protection worn must be compatible with respiratory protection system employed.
Hand protection: Chemical-resistant gloves should be worn whenever this material is handled. Glove
permeation data does not exist for this material. The following glove(s) should be used for splash
protection only: Neoprene gloves VITON Synthetic Rubber (registered Trademark of Dupont Dow
Elastomers) Nitrile rubber Gloves should be removed and replaced immediately if there is any
indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough. Rinse and remove gloves immediately after use.
Wash hands with soap and water.
Skin and body protection: Use chemically resistant apron or other impervious clothing to avoid
prolonged or repeated skin contact.
Respiratory protection: A respiratory protection program meeting OSHA 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2
requirements or equivalent must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator's
use. None required under normal operating conditions. Where vapors and/or mists may occur, wear
a properly fitted NIOSH approved (or equivalent) half-mask, air-purifying respirato r. Air-purifying
respirators should be equipped with NIOSH approved (or equivalent) N95 filters. If oil mist is present,
use R95 or P95 filters.
Protective measures: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash
facility and a safety shower.
Engineering measures: Use explosion-proof local exhaust ventilation with a minimum capture
velocity of 100 ft/min (0.5 m/sec) at the point of vapor evolution. Refer to the current edition of
Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice published by the American Conference of
Governmental Industrial Hygienists for information on the design, installation, use, and maintenance of
exhaust systems.
