|Section 4 – First Aid Measures|
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid. Skin: Get medical aid. Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Get medical aid. Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
|Section 5 – Fire Fighting 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. Vapors may form an explosive mixture with air. Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Will burn if involved in a fire. Containers may explode in the heat of a fire. Flammable liquid and vapor. Extinguishing Media: Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers. Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. Water may be ineffective.Flash Point: 18 deg C ( 64.40 deg F)Autoignition Temperature: Not available.Explosion Limits, Lower:Not available.
Upper: Not available. NFPA Rating:(estimated) Health: 2; Flammability: 3; Instability: 0
|Section 6 – Accidental Release Measures|
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8. Spills/Leaks: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Remove all sources of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool. Do not let this chemical enter the environment.
|Section 7 – Handling and Storage|
Handling: Use only in a well-ventilated area. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Storage: Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container. Flammables-area.
|Section 8 – Exposure Controls, Personal Protection|
Engineering Controls: Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment. Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.Exposure Limits
