Fire and Explosion Hazards

Conditions of Flammability CAUTION!! Combustible liquid and vapor
Extinguishing Media Use water spray, dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide to extinguish fire. Use a water spray to cool fire-exposed containers, structures and to protect personnel. If leak or spill has not been ignited, ventilate area and use water spray to disperse gas or vapor.
Flash Point and Method of Determination 125°F (51.6°C)
Auto-ignition Temperature 410°F (210°C)
Upper Explosion Limit (% by volume) 5.0
Lower Explosion Limit (% by volume) 0.7
Flammability Classification 2
Hazardous Combustion Products Open Flames, Sparks.
Explosion Data Irritating or toxic substances may be emitted upon thermal decomposition. Dangerous when exposed to heat or flames. Runoff to sewer may cause fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode in heat of fire.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures Evacuate area of all unnecessary personnel. Shut off source, if possible. Use NIOSH/MSHA approved self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and other protective equipment and/or garments described in Section C if conditions warrant. Water fog or spray may be used to cool exposed containers and equipment. Do not spray water directly on fire - product will float and could be reignited on surface of water.
Fire Hazards Carbon oxides, and various hydrocarbons formed when burned. Highly flammable vapors which are heavier than air may accumulate in low areas and/or spread along ground away from handling site. Flash back along vapor trail is possible.

Stability and Reactivity Data

Chemical Stability Stable, Reactivity: 0
Incompatible Materials Strong oxidizing agents
Hazardous Decomposition Combustion may produce CO, CO2 and reactive hydrocarbons.
Conditions of Reactivity N/A

Health Hazard Information

Routes of Entry:  


Exposure to vapors, fumes or mist may cause irritation.

Skin Contact

Practically non-toxic. Moderately irritating. Repeated or prolonged contact my result in defatting, redness, itching, inflammation, cracking and possibly secondary infection. May cause allergic reactions in some.


May cause respiratory tract irritation. Exposures may cause central nervous symptoms similar to those listed under "Ingestion". Changes in liver, kidneys and bone marrow may occur with prolonged, high concentrations.


Moderately toxic. Aspiration into lungs may cause pnewmontis. May cause gastrointestinal disturbances. Symptoms may include irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause harmful central nervous system effects.
Carcinogenicity, Reproductive Effects Hazardous components present at less than 1% (0.1% for carcinogens).

Emergency and First Aid Procedures

Eyes Flush immediately with water for at least 15 minutes. Eyelids should be held away from the eyeball to ensure thorough rinsing. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
Skin Remove contaminated clothing. Wash area of contact with soap and water. Get medical attention.
Inhalation Remove affected person from source of exposure to fresh air. Restore breathing.
Ingestion DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING because of danger of aspirating liquid into lungs. Get immediate medical attention. If spontaneous vomiting occurs, monitor for breathing difficulty.

Preventative Measures

Personal Protective Equipment

Eye Protection

Wear safety glasses or chemical goggles to prevent eye contact. Do not wear contact lenses when working with this substance. have eye washing facilities readily available where eye contact can occur.


Wear impervious gloves and protective clothing to prevent skin contact.
Approved breathing equipment must be available for non-routine and emergency use.
Adequate to meet component permissible concentrations.

Environmental Procedures

Spills or Releases

No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Use water spray to reduce vapors.

Disposal This substance, when discarded or disposed of is not specifically listed as a hazardous waste in Federal regulations; however, it could be considered toxic, corrosive, ignitable or reactive according to Federal definitions.
Storage Requirements

Store in tightly closed containers in cool, dry, isolated, well-ventilated area away from heat, sources of ignition and incompatibles.

Handling Procedures and Equipment Ground lines and equipment used druing transfer to reduce the possibility of static-initiated fire or explosion.
