Administrative data

First-aid measures

- Following inhalation: Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. IF exposed or concerned: get medical advice/attention.

- Following skin contact: Wash contact areas with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. If skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction develops, get medical attention.

- Following eye contact: Flush thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation occurs, get medical assistance.

- Following ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs naturally, have victim lean forward to reduce risk of aspiration. Get medical assistance.

- Most important symptoms and effects: Dermal contact is expected to be the primary route of occupational exposure to this type of material.

- General advice: Contact physician if discomfort continues.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media: Dry chemicals, alcohol resistant foam, carbon dioxide (CO2), water spray or fog.
- Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher as this will spread the fire.
- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Carbon oxides
- Advice for fire fighter: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Keep unnecessary personnel away. Use personal protective equipment. Avoid breathing vapors, mists or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation.

- Environmental precautions: Do not let product enter drains.

- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Large spills: Stop the flow of material. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand, or earth or absorbent material then place into containers.
Small spills: Wipe up the absorbent material (e.g., cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling: Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapor or mist. Normal measures for preventive fire protection.

- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully closed and kept upright to prevent leakage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

- Appropriate engineering controls: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of the workday.

- Hand protection: Chemical resistant gloves. Wash and dry hands if exposed.

- Eye/face protection: Safety glasses with side shields

- Respiratory protection: Under normal conditions, respirator is not normally required. If risk assessment shows air purifying respirators are appropriate, follow NIOSH guidelines for selection and use.

- Other: Chemical/oil resistant clothing is recommended. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

Stability and reactivity

1. Reactivity: The product is stable and non-reactive under normal conditions of use, storage, and transport.
2. Chemical stability: Stable
3. Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous polymerization does not occur.
4. Conditions to avoid: Heat, flames and sparks. Avoid temperatures exceeding the flash point.
5. Incompatible materials: Strong oxidizing agents.
6. Hazardous decomposition products: Upon decomposition, this product emits carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and/or low molecular weight hydrocarbons.

Disposal considerations

Emergency spill and leak information: Spills should be absorbed on a suitable medium such as sawdust, clay or filtercel and disposed of as recommended below.

Disposal information: This material when discarded is not a hazardous waste as defined in by the Resource, Conservation and Recovery Act (40 CFR 261). Dispose of by all federal, state and local environmental regulations. Recommended method of disposal is by high temperature incineration in a RCRA approved TSDF.
