FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Powder, AFFF, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 38C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 38C use a closed system, ventilation, and explosion-proof electrical equipment.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION
  • Confusion. Dizziness. Headache. Fatigue. Nausea. Unconsciousness.
    Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration if indicated. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • Dry skin.
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
  • EYES
  • Redness.
    Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Cough. Diarrhoea. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Headache. Nausea. Sore throat. Vomiting.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place.
    Fireproof. Separated from strong oxidants.

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

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    Reacts with strong oxidants, causing fire and explosion hazard. Attacks some forms of plastics, rubber, and coatings.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: 100 ppm; 525 mg/m3 (as TWA) (ACGIH 1993-1994).
    PDK not established.
    MAK not established.


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

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

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    Inhalation of vapours of this substance may cause irritation of the eyes and upper respiratory tract. Swallowing the liquid may cause aspiration into the lungs with the risk of chemical pneumonitis. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system. Exposure to high concentration of vapours may result in unconsciousness.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The liquid defats the skin. The substance may have effects on the central nervous system.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point: 149-204C

    Relative density (water = 1): 0.7-0.9
    Solubility in water: none
    Vapour pressure, kPa at 20C: 0.3-0.5
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.4
    Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): 1.01
    Flash point: 38-55C
    Auto-ignition temperature: 210C
    Explosive limits, vol% in air: 0.6-8.0
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA

    NOTES
    This is a mixture of petroleum distillates. It may contain between 5 and 20% aromatics hydrocarbons and it is assumed that the benzene concentration is less than 0.1% (refer to ICSC 0015 for information on benzene). The symptoms of chemical pneumonitis often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation is therefore essential. Auto-ignition temperature may be reduced to approx. 180C in the presence of a high-surface-area material.
