Emergency overview: Appearance: clear, colorless. Warning! Light sensitive. Cancer suspect agent. May cause central nervous system depression. Aspiration hazard. May cause eye and skin irritation. May cause respiratory and digestive tract irritation. May cause cardiac disturbances. May cause reproductive and fetal effects. May cause cancer based on animal studies. Target Organs: Kidneys, heart, central nervous system, liver, gastrointestinal system, excretory system. Potential Health Effects Eye: Contact with liquid or vapor causes severe burns and possible irreversible eye damage. Vapors may cause eye irritation. Contact produces irritation, tearing, and burning pain. May cause conjunctivitis. Causes redness and pain. Skin: Causes irritation with burning pain, itching, and redness. Ingestion: Aspiration hazard. May cause central nervous system depression, kidney damage, and liver damage. May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause cardiac disturbances. Aspiration of material into the lungs may cause chemical pneumonitis, which may be fatal. Inhalation: Inhalation of high concentrations may cause central nervous system effects characterized by headache, dizziness, unconsciousness and coma. Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause liver and kidney damage. May cause cardiac sensitization and possible failure. Chronic: Over-exposure may cause delayed kidney injury. Possible cancer hazard based on tests with laboratory animals. Chronic ingestion may cause liver damage. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause adverse reproductive effects. May cause fetal effects. Chronic exposure has been associated with an increased incidence of kidney, liver, rectal, bladder, colon, brain, and lymph node cancer. Toxicity may be increased by exposure to alcohol, steroids, and ketones.
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: Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Notes to Physician: Causes cardiac sensitization to endogenous catecholamines which may lead to cardiac arrhythmias. Do not use adrenaline-derivative agents such as epinephrine or pseudoepinephrine.
General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Substance is noncombustible.
