Engineering control: Local exhaust recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Incompatibility: Strong oxidising agents, acids, alkalies

Hazardous Decomposition: Not available.

Condition to avoid: Elevated temperatures

Hazardous polymerization: Will not occur.

Stability: Stable.

Reactivity hazard: On burning: release of narcotic/asphyxiating gases/vapours carbon monoxide - carbon dioxide. Reacts exothermically on exposure to with (some) acids/bases.

Disposal considerations

Waste disposal: Incinerate in an industrial or commercial facility. Disposal alternative: dispose of completely absorbed waste product in a facility permitted to accept chemical wastes. Since regulations vary, consult applicable regulations or authorities before disposal.

According to literature: no environmental hazard.

Take up liquid spill into inert absorbent material e.g. sand/earth - adsorbed substance: scope closing drums.
