First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move to fresh air
Skin contact: Wash off with soap and plenty of water. If symptoms persist, call a physician.
Eye contact: Rinse with plenty of water. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.
Ingestion: Drink 1 to 2 glasses of water. Consult a physician. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep airway clear. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Flash point 90 degrees C (194 degrees F) Pensky Martens Closed Cup
Thermal decomposition: Thermal decomposition may yield the following: Hydrogen sulfide, sulfur oxides
Suitable extinguishing media: use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide
Specific hazards during fire fighting: vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Closed containers may rupture via pressure build-up when exposed to fire or extreme heat. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases and/or fumes may be generated during combustion or decomposition.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: in the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information: move containers promptly out of fire zone. If removal is impossible, cool containers with water spray. Remain upwind. Avoid breathing smoke.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Appropriate protective equipment must be worn when handling a spill of this material. See Section 8, Exposure Controls/Personal Protection, for recommendations.
If exposed to material during clean-up operations, see SECTION 4 of the SDS, First Aid Measures, for actions to follow.

Environmental precautions
WARNING: Keep spills and cleaning runnoffs out of municipal sewers and open bodies of water.

Methods for cleaning up
Eliminate all ignition sources
Evacuate personnel to safe areas
Ventilate the area
Floor may be slippery; use care to avoid falling
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).
Sweep up or vacuum up spillage and collect in suitable container for disposal.
Avoid breathing vapor.
Note: Spills on porous surfaces can contaminate groundwater.

Handling and storage

Vapors can be evolved when material is heated during processing operations. See Section 8 , Exposure Controls/Personal Protection, for types of ventilation required. Use non-sparkling tools and grounding cables when transferring. Wash after handling and shower at end of work period. 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: Avoid temperature extremes during storage; ambient temperature preferred. Store away from excessive heat (e.g. steampipes, radiators), from sources of ignition and from reactive materials. Store out of direct sunlight in a cool place. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Avoid all ignition sources. Ground all metal containers during storage and handling.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Eye protection: Chemical resistant goggles must be worn. Eye protection worn must be compatible with respiratory protection system employed.

Hand protection: Chemical-resistant gloves should be worn whenever this material is handled. The glove(s) listed below may provide protection against permeation. (Gloves of other chemically resistant materials may not provide adequate protection): Nitrile rubber butyl-rubber Solvent-resistant gloves. Gloves shoudl 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. Where splashing is possible, full chemically resistant protective clothing (e.g. acid suit) and boots are required.

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 noraml operating conditions. Where vapors and/or mists may occur, wear a properly fitted NIOSH approved (or equivalent)half-mask, air-purifying respirator. Air-purifying respirators should be equipped with NIOSH approved (or equivalent) organic vapor cartridges and N95 filters. If oil mist is present, use R95 or P95 filters.

Protective measures: Facilities storing or utilizing this material shoudl be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower.

Engineering measures: Use explosion-proff local exhuast 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 exhuast systems.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous reactions: This material is considered stable. However, avoid contact with ignition sources (e.g. sparks, open flame, heated sources).

Conditions to avoid: None known.

Materials to avoid: Avoid contact with the following: Strong oxidizing agents Strong acids and Strong bases

Hazardous decomposition products: There are no known hazardous decomposition products for this material.

Polymerisation: Product will not undergo hazardous polymerization.

Disposal considerations

Environmental precautions: Warning: Keep spills and cleaning runoffs out of municipal sewers and open bodies of water.

Waste classification: When a decision is made to discard this material as supplied, it does not meet RCRA's characteristic definition of ignitability, corrosivity, or reactivity, and is not listed in 40 CFR 261.33. the toxicity characteristic (TC), however, has not been evaluated by the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP).
Incinerate liquid and contaminated solids in accordance with local, state and federal regulations (See 40 CFR 268)

Contaminated packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site fo recycling or disposal.
