Fire and Explosion Hazards

Conditions of Flammability This liquid is volatile and gives off invisible vapors. Either the liquid or the vapor may settle in low areas or travel some distance along the ground or surface to ignition sources where they may ignite or explode. Keep away from ignition sources, such as heat, sparks, pilot lights, static electricity, and open flames. Do not cut, drill or weld empty containers.
Extinguishing Media Foam, Water Fog, Dry Chemical, Carbon Dioxide.
Flashpoint and Method of Determination 100°C  (212°F)
Flammable Limits in Air % B. V. Upper 7.0%
Flammable Limits in Air % B. V. Lower 0.9%
NFPA - Hazard Class Health:1  Fire:1  Reactivity:0
Hazardous Combustion Products Oxides of 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
Incompatible Materials Incompatible with strong oxidizers and corrosives
Hazardous Decomposition 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.
Eye May cause irritation, experienced as mild discomfort and seen as slight excess redness of the eye. Flush with water until discomfort subsides. If irritation persists, call a physician.
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. Use approves breathing equipment if working in a confined area.
Ingestion DO NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.
Carcinogenicity Not listed as a carcinogenic.

Emergency and First Aid Procedures

Eyes Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes or until irritation subsides. 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 DO NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Preventative Measures

Ventilation Requirements Use explosion proof ventilation as required to control vapor concentration.
Respiratory Protection 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.
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.

Steps to be taken in case material is released or spilled: Shut off and eliminate all ignition sources. Keep people away. Recover free product. Add sand, earth, or other suitable absorbent to spill area. Minimize breathing vapors. minimize skin contact. Ventilate confined areas. Open all windows and doors. Keep product out of sewers and watercourses by diking or impounding. Advise authorities if product has entered or may enter sewers, watercourses or extensive land areas.

Assure conformity with applicable governmental regulations. Continue to observe precautions for volatile, flammable vapors from absorbed material.

Spills or releases should be reported, if required to the appropriate local, state and federal regulatory agencies.

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.
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.
