Emergency overview:

Appearance: Colorless liquid
Flash Point:    n/a
 
Warning!
May cause eye and skin irritation.  May be harmful if swallowed, inhaled 
or absorbed through the skin. May cause respiratory tract irritation.  
May cause central nervous system depression.

Target Organs: Central nervous system, eyes

Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause eye irritation. May cause transient corneal injury.

Skin: May cause skin irritation.

Section 4: First Aid Measures

Eyes: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of 
water for at least 15 minutes.  Seek medical attention immediately.

Skin: In case of contact, wash with soap and flush skin with plenty of water.  
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.  Wash clothing before reuse.  Seek 
medical attention if irritation develops and persist.

Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by 
medical personnel.  Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.  
Seek medical attention.
 
Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air.  If not breathing, give artificial 
respiration.  If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  Seek medical attention.
 
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.




Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

General Information:
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 in pressure demand,
MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent and impervious protective clothing.  

Extinguishing Media:
Use extinguishing media most appropriate for the surrounding fire.




Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

General Information:
Use proper protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.

Spills/Leaks:
Provide ventilation. Absorb spill with inert material, such as vermiculite, sand or 
earth, and place in suitable container for disposal. Avoid run-off into storm sewers 
and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately. Remove all sources 
of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool.




Section 7: Handling and Storage

Handling:
Use with adequate ventilation.  Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated 
clothing and wash before reuse. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.

Storage:
Keep away from sources of ignition.  Store in tightly closed container.  Store in 
cool, dry, well ventilated area.






Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection

Engineering Controls:
Eyewash and safety shower should be readily available. Use adequate general or 
local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible 
exposure limits.

Exposure Limits:

Chemical Name		ACGIH		NIOSH         OSHA - Final PELs
2-Butoxyethanol		20 ppm TWA	5 ppm TWA	50 ppm TWA
					24 mg/m3 TWA	240 mg/m3 TWA

Ammonia			25 ppm TWA	25 ppm TWA	50 ppm TWA
			35 ppm STEL	18 mg/m3 TWA	35 mg/m3 TWA
					300 ppm IDHL
					
OSHA Vacated PELs:
2-Butoxyethanol: 25 ppm TWA; 120 mg/m3 /TWA

Personal Protective Equipment

Eyes: Wear chemical splash goggles.

Skin: Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure.

Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.

Respirators:
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard 
EN 149. Use a NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator if exposure 
limits are exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are experienced.
