First-aid measures

Inhalation. Remove to fresh air. Keep warm and at rest. Get medical attention if patient feels unwell.
Skin: Immediately wash skin with large quantities of water. Remove contaminated clothing during washing. Get medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Dispose of contaminated leather wear.
Eyes: Immediately flush eye with large quantities of water for at least 20 minutes holding the eye open. Avoid contaminating unaffected eye. Get medical attention urgently.
Ingestion: Get medical attention urgently. Do not induce vomiting. Keep patient warm and at rest. Give 240-300 ml water to drink ( only if patient is conscious). Repeat if patient vomits. Give activated charcoal. Get urgent medical attention and show the label of the product.
Advice to physicians: Contains ethylene glycol. Monitor serum electrolytes and renal function. A serum concentration of <20mg/dL is considered non-toxic. Consider administration of an alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor (ethanol, fomepizole). Consider gastric lavage. Treat symptomatically for corosive effects.

Fire-fighting measures

Special hazards: Hazardous combustion products may include carbon monoxide.
Fire/explosion hazards: Combustible material. Burns but does not ignite readily. Containers may explode when heated.
Extinguishing media: Suitable: Polyvalent foam, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, water mist. Unsuitable: Water in a jet. Cool tanks/drums with water spray or remove to safe area.
Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Exposure controls and personal protection: Consider need to evacuate non-essential personnel. Wear appropriate protective clothing.
Environmental precautions: Keep away from drains, water and soil. Advise authorities if spilled material has entered water courses or sewer or has contaminated soil or vegetation.
Clean up methods: Absorb or contain liquid with sand, earth or other non-combustible spill control material. Collect and place in a labelled sealable container for subsequent safe disposal. Flush contaminated area with plenty of water. Put leaking containers in a labelled drum or overdrum.

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe normal hygiene standards. Clean contaminated clothing before re-use. Provide emergency eye washing and shower facilities.
Storage: Storage area should be cool and dry. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a well-ventilated place. Store in a bunded area. For containers use mild steel or stainless steel, glass, high density polypropylene. Compatible with baked phenolic or epoxy-phenolic coatings. Not recommended: aluminium, tinned steel, zinc or galvanised steel, copper and copper based alloys.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure standards
- Ethylene glycol: EC IOEL: 8hr TWA: 20ppm/60mg/m3 (vapour). 10mg/m3 (particulate). STEL: 40ppm/125mg/m3 (vapour).
- Diethylene glycol. MAK 10ppm/44mg/m3 (vapour).
Technical control measures: Use containment and engineering control measures to minimise exposure during handling and use
Eye protection: Protective goggles with side-shields
Hand protection: Gloves made from natural rubber (~1mm), Neoprene™ rubber or nitrile rubber (0.5-0.6mm). Breakthrough times >480mins for thicknesses shown.
Body protection: Neoprene™ apron. Rubber boots.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable under normal conditions. Hygroscopic.
Conditions to avoid: High temperatures. Wet storage conditions.
Materials to avoid: Oxidising agents, strong acids.
Hazardous decomposition products: Oxides of carbon on combustion.

Disposal considerations

Waste disposal: Dispose of as for hazardous waste. Recover or recycle if possible. Otherwise incineration. Dispose of in accordance with all local regulations.
Container disposal: Drain container thoroughly before disposal. Send to drum recover or metal reclaimer.
