Emergency overview: Appearance: Colorless Flash Point: 13°C (56°F) Warning! Flammable liquid and vapor. May cause central nervous system depression. May cause liver and kidney damage. May cause cancer based on animal studies. Causes eye and skin irritation. Causes respiratory tract irritation. Irritant. May be harmful if swallowed. Potential cancer hazard. Target Organs: Kidneys, central nervous system, liver, eyes, skin. Potential Health Effects Eye: Causes eye irritation. Vapors may cause eye irritation. May cause chemical conjunctivitis and corneal damage. Skin: Causes skin irritation. May be absorbed through the skin. May cause irritation and dermatitis. May cause cyanosis of the extremities. Ingestion: May cause central nervous system depression, kidney damage, and liver damage. May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause liver and kidney damage. May cause effects similar to those for inhalation exposure. May be harmful if swallowed. Aspiration hazard: May cause central nervous system depression, kidney damage, and liver damage. Inhalation: Inhalation of high concentrations may cause central nervous system effects characterized by nausea, headache, dizziness, unconsciousness and coma. Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause liver and kidney damage. Aspiration may lead to pulmonary edema. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Can produce delayed pulmonary edema. May cause burning sensation in the chest. Chronic: Possible cancer hazard based on tests with laboratory animals. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Prolonged or repeated eye contact may cause conjunctivitis. May cause liver and kidney damage. Effects may be delayed.
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. Get medical aid immediately. Do not allow victim to rub or keep eyes closed. 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. Discard contaminated clothing in a manner which limits further exposure. 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. Possible aspiration hazard. Get medical aid immediately. Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Do not use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
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. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Will burn if involved in a fire. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Containers may explode in the heat of a fire. Flammable liquid and vapor. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Vapors can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas. Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. For large fires, use water spray, fog, or alcohol-resistant foam. Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers. Water may be ineffective. Do NOT use straight streams of water.
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. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately. Remove all sources of ignition. Use only spark-proof tools in the area that this product is to be used. A vapor suppressing foam may be used to reduce vapors.
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Empty bottles retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid contact with heat, sparks and flame. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use with adequate ventilation. 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 away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed container. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Flammables-area: Storage under a nitrogen blanket has been recommended.
Engineering Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate general or local explosion-proof ventilation to keep airborne levels to acceptable levels.

Exotoxicity: Water flea Daphnia: 218mg/liter; 48 hours; Bluegill/Sunfish: 430mg/liter; 96hour; Static Fathead Minnow: 136mg/liter; 96 hours; Static No data available. Environmental Fate: Terrestrial: Smaller releases on land will evaporate fairly rapidly. Larger releases may leach rapidly through sandy soil into groundwater. Aquatic: If released to surface water, its primary loss will be by evaporation. The half-life for evaporation will depend on wind and mixing conditions and was of the order of hours in the laboratory. However a modeling study using the EXAMS model for a eutrophic lake gave a half-life of 10 days. Atmospheric: Will degrade by reaction with hydroxyl radicals formed photochemically in the atmosphere. Half-life over one month. Physical: Not expected to biodegrade or bioconcentrate.
