EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Sore throat.
    Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN
  • Dry skin. Redness.
    Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
  • 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
  • Drowsiness. Unconsciousness (further see Inhalation).
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Rest. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking liquid in sealable containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place.
    Fireproof. Separated from strong oxidants.

    UN Hazard Class: 3

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

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    Reacts with strong oxidants causing fire and explosion hazard.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour or 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 20°C.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system. Exposure at high level, if ingested, could cause lowering of consciousness.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The liquid defats the skin.

    Solubility in water: immiscible
    Vapour pressure, kPa at 30°C: 0.93
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.9
    Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 1.08

    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA

    N O T E S
    Environmental effects from the substance have not been investigated adequately. Cyclohexylacetate is more narcotic and more lethal to animals at lower concentrations than other acetates but beeing of lower volatility, it is less hazardous from the industrial point of view. The relation between odour and the occupational exposure limit cannot be indicated.
