Section 3 - Hazards Identification
Appearance: clear colorless to pale yellow liquid. Flash Point: 46 deg C.
Warning! May be fatal if absorbed through the
skin. Flammable liquid and vapor.
Vesicant (agent that induces blistering). Harmful if swallowed.
Causes eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation. May cause
allergic respiratory and skin reaction. This substance has caused
adverse reproductive and fetal effects in animals. Moisture
Target Organs: Respiratory system, eyes, skin.
Potential Health Effects
Causes eye irritation. Lachrymator (substance which increases the
flow of tears).
May be fatal if absorbed through the skin. May cause skin
sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon
re-exposure to this material. This material is a vesicant, that is,
it will induce blistering. Causes skin irritation and possible
burns. Prolonged exposure may produce blisters.
Harmful if swallowed. May cause gastrointestinal irritation with
nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Effects may be delayed.
Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause asthmatic attacks due
to allergic sensitization of the respiratory tract. Vapors may cause
dizziness or suffocation.
May cause reproductive and fetal effects. Laboratory experiments
have resulted in mutagenic effects.
Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes,
occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid. Do
NOT allow victim to rub eyes or keep eyes closed.
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of
water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing
and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Do not induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4
cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately.
Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not
breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult,
give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician:
Treat symptomatically and supportively. Effects may be delayed.
Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in
pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full
protective gear. Vapors may form an explosive mixture with air.
Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back. During a
fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal
decomposition or combustion. Will burn if involved in a fire. Use
water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Containers may
explode in the heat of a fire. Flammable liquid and vapor.
For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or
alcohol-resistant foam. For large fires, use water spray, fog, or
alcohol-resistant foam. Use water spray to cool fire-exposed
containers. Water may be ineffective. Do NOT get water inside
containers. Do NOT use straight streams of water.
Flash Point: 46 deg C ( 114.80 deg F)

(estimated) Health: 3; Flammability: 2; Instability: 0
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated
in Section 8.
Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth),
then place in suitable container. Clean up spills immediately,
observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Remove all
sources of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool. Provide ventilation. Do
not get water inside containers. A vapor suppressing foam may be
used to reduce vapors.
Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Ground and bond
containers when transferring material. Use spark-proof tools and
explosion proof equipment. Contents may develop pressure upon
prolonged storage. Do not breathe dust, mist, or vapor. Do not get in
eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Empty containers retain product
residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Keep container
tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not ingest
or inhale. Do not allow contact with water. Use only in a chemical
fume hood. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind,
or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames. Keep from
contact with moist air and steam.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed
container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
incompatible substances. Refrigerator/flammables. Store protected
Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection
Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment. Facilities storing or
utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility
and a safety shower. Use only under a chemical fume hood.
