Section 3 : Hazards Identification


Main Hazards :


Harmful : may cause lungdamage if swallowed

Health Effects – Eyes :

Liquid, mist or vapour at high concentrations may cause conjunctival irritation.

Health Effects – Skin :

Repeated or prolonged contact  may produce  defatting of the skin leading to irritation and dermatitis. Components may be absorbed through intact skin, but it is unlikely that harmful effects will occur unless contact is prolonged and extensive.

Health Effects – Ingestion :

Swallowing may have the following effects : symtoms similar to alcohol intoxication, nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, loss of coordination, drowsiness, loss of consciousness.

Aspiration during swallowing or vomiting may severely damage the lungs.

Health Effects – Inhalation :

Exposure to vapour or mist may have the following effects : irritation of nose, throat and respiratory tract.


Section 4 : Emergency and First Aid Measures


Eye Contact :

Immediately flood the eye with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eye open. Get medical attention urgently.

Skin Contact :

Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Get medical attention if blistering occurs or redness persists.

Inhalation :

Remove from exposure. Keep warm and at rest. Get medical attention.

Ingestion :

Wash out mouth with water. DO NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs naturally, lean victim forward to reduce risk of aspiration. Repeat administration of water. Keep warm and at rest. If there is difficulty breathing give oxygen, but only under strict medical supervision. If breathing stops or shows signs of failing, apply artificial respiration. If heartbeat absent, give external cardiac compression. Get medical attention.

Advice to Physicians :

Treat symptomatically. Avoid aspiration. Keep under medical surveillance for 48 hours if aspiration could have occurred.


Section 5 : Fire Fighting Measures


Extinguishing Media :

Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Select extinguishing agent appropriate to other materials involved. Keep containers and surroundings cool with water spray.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media :

Do not use water jet.

Special Hazards of product :

This product will emit toxic fumes in a fire. Decomposition products include : Oxides of carbon. This product gives off flammable vapours which may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapours can travel a considerable distance to a source  of ignition and flashback. Containers may explode in heat of fire.

Protective Equipment for Fire-Fighting

Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.




Section 6 : Accidental Release Measures


Personal Precautions :

Eliminate all sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Mark out the contaminated area with signs and prevent access to unauthorised personnel. Wear appropriate protective clothing. Wear respiratory protection. Ventilate contaminated area thoroughly. Vapours can accumulate in low areas. Personnel should stay upwind of spill.

Environmental Precautions :

Try to prevent the material from entering drains or water courses. Prevent spread of material by use of temporary bund or impervious barrier.

Advise Authorities if spillage has entered water course or sewer or has contamined soil or vegetation.

Spillages :

Spillages will create a fire hazard. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Try to prevent the material from entering drains or water courses. Contain and absorb using earth, sand or other inert material. Transfer into suitable closed containers for disposal.


Section 7 : Handling Storage


Handling :

Remove ignition sources. Avoid sparks. Do not smoke. Suitable equipment for dealing with fires, spills and leaks must be readily available.

Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Eye wash facilities should be readily available. Use in well ventilated area. Avoid inhaling vapour.

Keep container tightly closed when not in use.

Storage :

Storage area should be : cool, dry, well ventilated, out of direct sunlight, away from incompatible materials.

Store away from sources of heat or ignition. Storage and transfer equipment should be adequately earthed and bonded to prevent the accumulation of static charges.


Section 8 : Exposure Controls


Occupational Exposure Standards :

UK EH40 : OES 1200 mg/m3 8h TWA (calculated)

Respiratory Protection :

Respiratory protection if there is a risk of exposure to high levels of mists or vapours.

Hand Protection :

Wear protective rubber gloves, nitrile (no PVC).

Eye Protection :

Chemical goggles.

Body Protection :

If there is danger of splashing, wear : rubber apron.
