FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 67C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 67C use a closed system, ventilation.

EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

  • INHALATION

  • Local exhaust.
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • Redness. Pain.
    Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Sore throat.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking liquid in sealable containers. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: A/P2 filter respirator for organic vapour and harmful dust).
    Separated from oxidants. Dry. Ventilation along the floor.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS LIQUID OR CRYSTALLINE MASS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides. Reacts vigorously with oxidants.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


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

    INHALATION RISK:
    A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes and the skin.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point: 165C
    Melting point: 31C
    Relative density (water = 1): 0.93
    Solubility in water: miscible
    Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: 133
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 3.0
