Section 03 Hazard Identification

Emergency overview:

Appearance: Clear, colorless liquid
Flash Point:  71.6°F (22°C)  
Warning! Flammable liquid and vapor. Vapor harmful. Inhalation may 
affect the brain or nervous system causing dizziness, headache or 
nausea. Repeated exposure may cause skin dryness or cracking.

Routes of Entry: Skin contact, Inhalation, Ingestion, Eye contact

Potential Health Effects

Eye: Causes eye irritation. Vapors cause eye irritation.

Skin: May cause skin irritation.  Prolonged or repeated skin contact
may cause defatting of the skin or dermatitis.

Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed.  Ingestion is not an expected route
of entry in industrial or commercial uses. May cause gastrointestinal
irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause CNS depression.

Inhalation: Respiratory system irritant.  May cause a variety of 
symptoms such as dryness of the throat, tightness of the chest, 
and shortness of breath. May cause central nervous system depression,
characterized by headache, dizziness, staggering gait, confusion, 
unconsciousness or coma.

Chronic: Repeated or prolonged solvent overexposure may result in 
permanent central nervous system damage. Chronic skin contact may 
cause dermatitis.

Section 04 First Aid Measures

Eyes: Flush eyes immediately with copious amounts of water, holding the
eyelids open, for at least 15 minutes.  Seek medical attention.

Skin: Flush skin with copious amounts of water, while removing 
contaminated clothing. Wash affected skin areas with soap and water. 
Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.  Seek medical attention if 
symptoms develop.

Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Never give anything 
by mouth to an unconscious person.  Call a physician or poison 
control center immediately for further instructions.

Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, 
give oxygen. Give artificial respiration if breathing has stopped.
Seek immediate medical attention.

Section 05 Fire Fighting Measures

General Information:
    Flash point: 71.6°F, 22°C
    Explosive Limits:
        Upper: 7.6
        Lower: 1.3
    Autoignition Temperature: 407°C (764.6°F)
Extinguishing Media:
    Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical, Foam, Water Fog
Firefighting Procedures:
    Wear full firefighting protective clothing, including a full face piece, 
    positive pressure, self contained breathing apparatus. Water spray may be
    ineffective. If water is used, fog nozzles are preferable. For large fires,
    water may be ineffective.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:
    Flammable liquid and vapor.  Keep containers tightly closed.  Keep away from
    heat, electrical equipment, sparks, open flames, other sources of ignition. 
    Use water spray to keep fire exposed containers cool.  Closed containers may
    rupture when exposed to extreme heat. 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.  Under fire conditions, 
    irritating and/or toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or 

Section 06 Accidental Release Measures

General Information:
    Before attempting clean-up, refer to hazard caution information in other 
    sections of the msds.


Spill Response: 
    Evacuate the area of all unnecessary personnel. 

Action to take for spills: 
    For small spills: Absorb with inert material and place in a suitable 
        container for disposal.
    For large spills: Get workers out of the affected area. If flammable 
        liquids or vapors may be present, turn off electrical devices or other 
        sources of sparks or flames. Wear protective equipment. Use supplied-air 
        respiratory protection if vapor concentrations are not known. Contain 
        spill at source by diking or absorbing with sand. Do not allow spill to
        spread to or intentionally flush to sewer or ground. Wash area thoroughly. 
        Adequately ventilate area. Use spark-proof tool.

Section 07 Handling and Storage

Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood.

Keep container tightly closed and upright to prevent leakage. Ground and
bond containers when transferring material.  Avoid contact with skin and
eyes.  Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid breathing of vapor or spray
mists. Use with adequate ventilation.

Empty containers should not be re-used. Because empty containers may retain 
product residue and flammable vapors, keep away from heat, sparks and flame.
Do not cut, puncture or weld on or near the empty container.  Do not smoke 
where product is used or stored.

Do not store or use near heat, sparks or open flame.  Store only in 
well-ventilated “flammables” areas. Do not puncture, drag or slide container.  
Keep container closed when not in use.  Refer to OSHA 29CFR Part 1910.103 
“Flammable and Combustible Liquids” for specific storage requirements.

Section 08 Special Handling Information

Engineering Controls:
    Safety shower and eyewash station must be readily available.
    Ventilation sufficient to maintain air contaminant levels below 
        recommended exposure limits must be provided. Solvent vapors
        are heavier than air and collect in lower levels of the work 
        area.  Explosion-proof ventilation equipment should be provided
        to prevent flammable vapor/air mixtures from accumulating.

Personal Protective Equipment

Eyes: Chemical splash goggles or safety glasses with side shields

Clothing: Use disposable or impervious clothing if work clothing
contamination is likely. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse.

Respirators: Consult ANSI Standard Z988.2 for decision logic to select
appropriate NIOSH/MESA approved respirators. If respirators are needed to meet
applicable limits, a respiratory protection program up to the level of OSHA
Standard 290CFR 1910.134 is mandatory.
