Ingestion Do not ingest. If ingested, give milk or water. Contact a physician immediately.

Special Protection / Preventative Measures Information

Ventilation Requirements Use explosion proof ventilation as required to control vapor concentration.
Respiratory Protection Not required under normal OSHA TLV. Use NIOSH approved respirators to prevent over-exposure.
Eye Protection Safety glasses with side shields or goggles.
Protective Gloves Nitrile gloves provide best protection to hands and arms.
Personal Hygiene Wear effective plant clothing. Contaminated clothing should be removed and washed in soap and water. Cleanse skin thoroughly before meals with soap and water. Shower and eyewash facilities should be accessible.

Environmental Procedures

Spills or Releases If material is spilled or released to the atmosphere, steps should be taken to prevent discharges to streams or sewer systems.  Transfer bulk of mixture into another container. Absorb residue with inert material such as earth, sand, or vermiculate. Sweep up and dispose as solid waste in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations. Spills or releases should be reported, if required to the appropriate local, state and federal regulatory agencies.
Waste Disposal Recycle to process if possible. Clean up action should be carefully planned and executed. Shipment, storage and/or disposal of waste materials are regulated and action to handle or dispose of spilled or released materials must meet all state, local, and federal rules.
Storage Protect against physical damage. Separate from oxidizing materials. Store in cool well ventilated area of non-combustible construction away from possible sources of ignition. Do not handle or store at temperatures over (maximum storage temperature) 60°C (140°F)
