Fire and Explosion Hazards

Conditions of Flammability Addition of water or foam may cause frothing. Do not cut, drill or weld empty containers.
Extinguishing Agents Foam, Water Fog, Dry Chemical, Carbon Dioxide.
Flashpoint and Method of Determination 245°F  (118°C) ,  TCC, ASTM D56
Flammable Limits in Air % B. V. Upper 1.5
Flammable Limits in Air % B. V. Lower Not Determined
NFPA - Hazard Class Health:2  Fire:1  Reactivity:0
Hazardous Combustion Products Oxides from Carbon, Aldehydes, Acids, and Keton.
Unusual Fire an Explosion Hazard Container exposed to intense heat from fires should be cooled with water to prevent vapor pressure build up which could result in container rupture.  Container areas exposed to direct flame contact should be cooled with large quantities of water as needed to prevent weakening of container structure.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures Wear self contained breathing apparatus when fire fighting in a confined space. Cool fire exposed containers with water spray.

Reactivity Data

Chemical Stability Stable. Avoid oxidizers, heat and open flame.
Incompatible Materials Oxygen, and strong oxidizing agents: Peroxide, Chlorine Strong Acids, etc. 
Hazardous Decomposition From burning: oxides of carbon, aldehydes, acids and keton.
Hazardous Polymerization Material is not known to polymerize.

Health Hazard Information

Routes of Entry
Skin Contact Brief contact may cause slight irritation. Prolonged contact, as with clothing wetted with material, may cause more severe irritation and discomfort, seen as local redness and swelling. Other than the potential skin irritation effects noted above, acute (short term) adverse effects are not expected from brief skin contact. May cause dermatitis.
Eye May cause irritation, experienced as mild discomfort and seen as slight excess redness of the eye, tearing and blurred vision.
Inhalation Vapors or mist, in excess of permissible concentrations, or in unusually high concentrations generated from spraying, heating the material or as from exposure in poorly ventilated areas or confined spaces, may cause irritation of the nose and throat, headache, nausea, and drowsiness. Prolonged or repeated overexposure may result in the absorption of potentially harmful amounts of material, which may cause increased heart rate, drop in blood pressure, depressed reflexes, seizures, convulsions and coma.
Ingestion Contains ethylene glycol and/or diethylene glycol, which are toxic when swallowed. A lethal dose for an adult is 1-2 ml per kilogram, or about 4 ounces (one half cup). Symptoms include headache, weakness, confusion, dizziness, staggering, slurred speech, loss of coordination, faintness, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, increased heart rate, decreased blood pressure, difficulty breathing and seeing, pulmonary edema, unconsciousness, convulsions, convulsions, collapse, and coma. Symptoms may be delayed. Decreased urine output and kidney failure may also occur. Severe poisoning may cause death. Aspiration may occur during swallowing or vomiting, resulting in lung damage. Causes eye changes such as optic atrophy and nystagmus. May be aspirated into lungs if swallowed, which may result in pulmonary edema and chemical pneumonitis.
Carcinogenicity Not listed as a carcinogenic.

Emergency and First Aid Procedures

Eyes Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Hold eyelids apart while flushing to rinse entire surface of eye and lids with water. Get medical attention.
Skin Wash skin with plenty of soap and water for several minutes. Get medical attention if skin irritation develops or persists.
Inhalation If irritation, headache, nausea, or drowsiness occurs, remove to fresh air. Get medical attention if breathing becomes difficult or respiratory irritation persists.
Ingestion Ethylene glycol (EG) and diethylene glycol (DEG) intoxication may initially produce behavioral changes, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, thirst, and convulsions. EG and DEG are nephrotoxic. End stages of poisoning may include renal damage or failure with acidosis. Supportive measures, supplemented with hemodialysis if indicated, may limit the progression and severity of toxic effects.

For Ethylene Glycol Poisoning, intravenous ethanol is a recognized antidotal treatment; other antodotal treatments also exist for EG poisoning.

For Diethylene Glycol Poisoning the role of intravenous ethanol is a recognized antidotal treatment is unclear but it may be of benefit in view of structural and toxicological similarities to ethylene glycol. Contact a Poison Center for further treatment information.

Aspiration of this product during induced emesis may result in severe lung injury. If evacuation of stomach is necessary, use method least likely to cause aspiration, such as gastric lavage after indotracheal intubation. Contact a Poison Center for additional treatment information.

Special Protection / Preventative Measures Information

Ventilation Requirements Use explosion proof ventilation as required to control vapor concentration.
Respiratory Protection Not required under normal OSHA PEL. Use NIOSH approved respirators to prevent overexposure. Do NOT breathe vapors, mist, fumes, or dust.
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.
Note N/A

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.  Spills or releases should be reported, if required to the appropriate local, state and federal regulatory agencies.
Waste Disposal 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. Absorb in dry, inert material, transfer to disposal containers.
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.

RCRA Waste Disposal methods
This product has been evaluated for RCRA characteristics and does not meet the criteria of a hazardous waste if discarded in its purchased form. Under RCRA, it is the responsibility of the user of the product to determine at the time of disposal, whether the product meets RCRA criteria for hazardous waste. This because product uses, transformations, mixtures, processes, etc. may render the resulting materials hazardous.

To prevent contamination of drinking water supplies, and poisoning of children, aquatic life, wildlife, and farm and domestic animals, ethylene glycol products such as used in antifreeze solution, regardless of quantity, should never be discarded onto the ground, into surface waters or into storm sewers.
