Section 3 - Hazards Identification


Appearance: clear, colorless. Flash Point: 40 deg C. Danger! Flammable liquid.Corrosive. Causes severe eye and skin burns. Causes severe digestiveand respiratory tract burns.
Target Organs: None.

Potential Health Effects

Eye: Causes severe eye burns. Contact with liquid or vapor causes severe burns and possible irreversible eye damage.
Skin: Causes severe burns with delayed tissue destruction.
Ingestion: May cause severe and permanent damage to the digestive tract. Causes gastrointestinal tract burns. Causes severe pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and shock.
Inhalation: Effects may be delayed. May cause irritation of the respiratory tract with burning pain in the nose and throat, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and pulmonary edema. Causes chemical burns to the respiratory tract. Inhalation may be fatal as a result of spasm, inflammation, edema of the larynx and bronchi, chemical pneumonitis and pulmonary edema.
Chronic: Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Repeated inhalation may cause chronic bronchitis.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures

Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. Get medical aid immediately.
Skin: Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately.
Inhalation: Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Antidote: No specific antidote exists.

Section 5 - Firefighting Measures

General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Flammable Liquid.
Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers.
Autoignition Temperature: 427 deg C (800.60 deg F)
Flash Point: 40 deg C (104.00 deg F)
NFPA Rating: health-3; flammability-2; reactivity-0 Explosion Limits, Lower: 4.00 vol % Upper: 17.00 vol %

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Use water spray to dilute spill to a non-flammable mixture. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Wash area with soap and water. Use water spray to disperse the gas/vapor. Remove all sources of ignition. Provide ventilation. Cover with material such as dry soda ash or calcium carbonate and place into a closed container for disposal.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage

Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Avoid contact with heat, sparks and flame. Do not get on skin or in eyes. Do not ingest or inhale. Use only in a chemical fume hood. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
Storage: Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Store in a suitable container in a dry area above the substance's freezing point. Do not store near alkaline substances.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection

Engineering Controls: Use only under a chemical fume hood.
