Precautionary statements:

Dispose of contents and container to an approved waste disposal plant. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. If eye irritation persists: get medical attention, IF IN EYES: Remove contact lenses, Thoroughly flush the eyes with large amounts of clean low pressure water or milk for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. If irritation persists, get medical attention. IF ON SKIN: Immediately flush affected area with plenty of water while removing contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Contact a doctor. If irritation persists, get medical attention. In case of fire use dry chemicals, CO2, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. Keep away from sparks, open flame, and hot surfaces. NO SMOKING. Keep Container lid tightly closed. Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep Cool. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Use explosion-proof electrical, ventilating and lighting equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Wear protective gloves and eye and face protection.

Section 5 : Firefighting Measures

Flammability Classification: OSHA/NFPA Class IB Flammable Liquid

Flash Point (F): 17C (62F)

Extinguishing Medium: SMALL Fire use dry chemicals, CO2, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. LARGE FIRE Use water spray, water fog or alcohol-resistant foam. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: May produce a floating fire hazard. Static ignition hazard can result from handling and use.

Hazards arising from chemical: Carbon oxides expected to be the primary hazardous combustion product.

Special Protective equipment and precautions for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Keep unopened containers cool by spraying with water.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

Personal Precautions/Emergency procedures:

DO NOT inhale vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Beware of vapors accumulation to form explosive concentrations. Vapors can accumulate in low areas.

Methods and materials used for containment :

Highly flammable liquid. Eliminate all sources of ignition. All equipment used when handling this product must be grounded. A vapor suppressing foam may be used to reduce vapors. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local/national regulations. Use clean non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material.

Section 7: Handling and Storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Do not get on skin or eyes. DO NOT inhale vapor or mist. Keep away from sources of ignition. No Smoking. Take measures to prevent the buildup of electrostatic charge. Open and handle container with care. Metal containers involved in the transfer of this material should be grounded or bonded.

Safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Keep container tightly closed in a cool, dry and well ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Consult local fire codes for additional storage information.
