FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Water spray, AFFF, alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 70°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 70°C use a closed system, ventilation.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE!

  • INHALATION
  • Blue lips or finger nails. Blue skin. Headache. Dizziness. Laboured breathing. Convulsions. Increased heartbeat. Vomiting. Weakness. Unconsciousness.
    Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • MAY BE ABSORBED! (further see Inhalation).
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Face shield, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • (further see Inhalation).
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Collect leaking liquid in covered containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment (extra personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus).
    Separated from food and feedstuffs, and incompatible materials: see Chemical Dangers.
    Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS OILY LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. TURNS BROWN ON EXPOSURE TO AIR OR LIGHT.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating at temperatures above 190°C, or on burning producing toxic and corrosive fumes (ammoia and nitrogen oxides) and flammable vapours. The substance is a weak base. Reacts vigorously with strong oxidants, acids, acetic anhydride, chloromelamine monomers, beta-propiolactone and epichlorohydrin causing fire and explosion hazard. Reacts with metals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, producing flammable hydrogen gas - see ICSC # 0001. Attacks copper and its alloys.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: 2 ppm; 7.6 mg/m3 (as TWA) (skin) (ACGIH 1992-1993).


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion , also as a vapour!

    INHALATION RISK:
    A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C on spraying, however, much faster.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes. The substance may cause effects on the blood: methemoglobinemia , resulting in cyanosis, brain damage and kidney failure.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The substance may have effects on the liver, kidneys, blood and spleen: methemoglobinemia (see short-term exposure).

    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to fish and crustacea.
    NOTES
    The ACGIH skin notation indicates the possibility of skin absorption. Use of alcoholic beverages enhances the harmful effect. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated. Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available. The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
