FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 52C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 52C closed system, ventilation.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Laboured breathing. Nausea. Shortness of breath. Sore throat. Vomiting.
    Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration if indicated. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. skin burns. Pain.
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain. Blurred vision.
    Face shield.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Abdominal pain. Diarrhoea (further see Inhalation).
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Give plenty of water to drink. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Wash away remainder with plenty of water (extra personal protection: A/P2 filter respirator for organic vapour and harmful dust).
    Separated from oxidants, acids, acid chlorides, isocyanates. Dry.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS HYGROSCOPIC LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    On combustion, forms toxic gases (nitrogen oxides). Reacts violently with oxidants, acids, acid chlorides, and isocyanates. Attacks light metals and copper.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV (as TWA): 10 ppm; 48 mg/m3 (skin) (ACGIH 1992-1993).
    MAK: 10 ppm; 50 mg/m3; H (1992).


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. Inhalation of vapour and/or fumes may cause lung oedema (see Notes). The substance may cause effects on the nervous system.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point: 163C
    Melting point: -70C
    Relative density (water = 1): 0.883
    Solubility in water: miscible
    Vapour pressure, kPa at 20C: 0.19
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.03
    Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): 1.01
    Flash point: 52C (c.c.)
    Auto-ignition temperature: 250C
    Explosive limits, vol% in air: 6.7-11.7
    Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 0.46
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA

    NOTES
    Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated. The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential. Immediate administration of an appropriate spray, by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered. The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
