Inhalation First Aid Remove victim to fresh air. If respiratory irritation occurs or if breathing is difficult, get medical attention. If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration. Maintain airway and administer oxygen if available. Get medical attention immediately. Skin Contact - First Aid Immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash skin with soap and plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Do not attempt to neutralize with chemical agents. Get medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean or destroy contaminated shoes. Eye Contact - First Aid Immediately flush eyes with large quantities of running water for a minimum of 15 minutes. If the victim is wearing contact lenses, remove them. Hold the eyelids apart during the flushing to ensure rinsing of the entire surface of the eye and lids with water. DO NOT let the victim rub eyes(s). Do not attempt to neutralize with chemical agents. Oils or ointments should not be used at this time. Get medical attention immediately. Ingestion - First Aid Get medical attention by calling a physician or a poison control center immediately. Give victim plenty of water to drink. Induce vomiting as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person. Get medical attention immediately. Medical Conditions Aggravated There are no data available that address medical condition that are generally recognized as being aggravated by exposure to this product. Note to Physician Attending physician should treat exposed patients symptomatically. Chemical burns on the skin should be treated as thermal burns. Flush eyes with buffered or plain irrigating solutions. If any ulceration or conjunctival injury is present, have an ophthalmologist examine the patient.
Auto Ignition Temperature: No data available Flash Method: Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point: 95.00°C (203.00°F) Lower Explosion Limit: No data available Upper Explosion Limit: No data available Extinguishing Media Use water fog, dry powder, foam or carbon dioxide extinguishing agents. Use of a direct, high pressure water stream may scatter spilled material. Dike fire control water for later disposal. Fire Fighting Procedures: As in any fire, prevent human exposure to fire, smoke, fumes or products of combustion. Evacuate non-essential personnel from the fire area. Fire fighters should wear full-face, self-contained breathing apparatus and impervious protective clothing. If not leaking, keep fire exposed containers cool with a water fog or spray to prevent rupture due to excessive heat. High pressure water may spread product from broken containers increasing contamination or fire hazard. Contaminated buildings, areas and equipment must not be used until they are properly decontaminated. Dike fire water for later disposal. Do not allow contaminated water to enter waterways. Fire and Explosion Hazards This product is not defined as flammable or combustible. However, it may decompose under fire conditions to give off toxic materials such as phosphorous oxides and flammable organic substituents. The product is self-extinguishing once the source of ignition is removed. Other Fire and Explosion Hazards No other explosion hazards of this product are known. Hazardous Products/Combustion Under fire conditions this product may support combustion and decompose to give off flammable alkene and phosphoric oxides as well as carbon oxides. The product is self-extinguishing once the source of ignition is removed. It is not sensitive to static discharge.

Clean up: Stop source of spill. Dike area to prevent spill from spreading. Soak up liquid with suitable absorbent such as clay, sawdust, or kitty litter. Sweep up absorbed material and place in a chemical waste container for disposal. CAUTION! The spill area may be slippery.
Handling: Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flames. Avoid contact with skin. Avoid inhalation of vapors and mists. Personnel handling this product should wash thoroughly after contact with this product. Storage: Store away from foodstuffs or animal feed. Containers should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from flammable or incompatible materials and sources of heat or flame. Exercise due caution to prevent damage to or leakage from the container. To prevent acid build-up, do not store the product at temperatures above 49°C (120°F). This product is normally shipped in polyethylene lined fiber cartons. Maximum Storage Temperature: 48.88°C (120°F) General comments: Containers should not be opened until ready for use.
Respiratory Protection: Use a NIOSH-approved organic vapor acid gas respirator (OVAG) with dust , mist, and fume filters to reduce potential for inhalation exposure if use conditions generate vapor, mist, or aerosol and adequate ventilation (e.g., outdoor or well ventilated area) is not available. Where exposure potential necessitates a higher level of protection use a NIOSH-approved, positive-pressure, pressure demand, air-supplied respirator. When using respirator cartridges or canisters, they must be changed frequently (following each use or at the end of the work shift) to assure breakthrough exposure does not occur. Skin Protection: Skin contact with liquid or its aerosol must be prevented through the use of permeation resistant clothing, gloves and footwear. Unprotected skin exposed to vapor, aerosol or mist must be thoroughly washed before eating, drinking, smoking and at the end of the workshift. Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses or chemical goggles during handling to avoid eye contact. Ventilation Protection: At elevated processing temperatures, or in the event that use conditions generate airborne vapor, aerosol or mist, the material should be handled in a well-ventilated area. Where adequate ventilation is not available, use a NIOSH-approved organic vapor/acid gas (OVAG) respirator with dust, mist, and fume filter to reduce exposure. Where exposure potential under use conditions is greater, use a NIOSH-approved, positive-pressure air-supplied respirator. Other Protection: Safety showers, with a quick opening valves which stay open, and eye was fountains, or other means of washing the eyes with a gentle flow of cool to tepid tap water, should be readily available in all areas where this material is handled or stored. Water should be supplied through insulated and heat-traced lines to prevent freeze ups in cold weather. Long sleeved clothing may be used to minimize skin contact. Applicable Exposure Limits: Other than any exposure limits which may be displayed in Section 8, there are no exposure limits applicable for this product or its components.
