SECTION 3 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW ?Black thin viscosity liquid with mild Ethereal odor. Warning! Flammable liquid and vapor.
Keep away from heat sparks and flames. May cause eye, skin and respiratory tract irritation. If swallowed do not induce
vomiting. Get immediate medical attention.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
Eyes: Liquid is moderately irritating to the eyes.
Skin: Liquid is mildly irritating to the skin.
Ingestion: Ingestion of liquid may cause vomiting.
Inhalation: High concentration of vapors may produce irritation of the respiratory tract, headache, dizziness, and nausea.
CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS
Prolonged or repeated contact may cause skin sensitization or dermatitis. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged
occupational overexposure to solvents with irreversible brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately
concentrating or inhaling this product may be harmful or fatal.
SECTION 4 FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes ?Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.
Inhalation ?Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical
Skin ?Flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
Ingestion ?If large quantities of this material are swallowed, get immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Never
give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

SECTION 5 FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flash Point (Method Used) Flammable Limits LEL UEL
Extinguishing Media -
Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or CO2. Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers and to protect personnel.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures -
Keep containers cool and vapors down with water spray. Prevent spill from entering drains, sewers, streams or other bodies of
water. If run-off occurs, notify proper authorities. Do not enter confined fire space without full bunker gear (helmet with face
shield, bunker coats, gloves and rubber boots); including a positive pressure NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards ?Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along ground, or be moved by ventilation and
be ignited by ignition source.
SECTION 6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
SMALL SPILL: Absorb liquid with non-combustible floor absorbent and place in non-leaking container; seal properly and
dispose of properly in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.
LARGE SPILL: Evacuate area of unprotected personnel. Eliminate all ignition sources. Stop spill at source if safe to do so.
Handling equipment must be grounded to prevent sparking. Prevent spill from entering drains, sewers, streams or other bodies of
water. If run-off occurs, notify proper authorities. Pump or vacuum transfer spilled product to clean containers for recovery.
Absorb unrecoverable product. Transfer contaminated absorbent, soil and other materials to containers for disposal. Dispose of
properly in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.
SECTION 7 HANDLING AND STORAGE
HANDLING: Empty containers retain residue (liquid and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze,
solder, drill, grind, or expose such containers to heat, sparks, flames, static electricity, or other sources of ignition. Many hot
organic chemical vapors or mists are susceptible to sudden spontaneous combustion when mixed with air. Ignition may occur at
temperatures below those published in the literature as "autoignition" or ignition temperatures. Ignition temperatures decrease with
increasing vapor volume and vapor volume and vapor/air contact time, and are influenced by pressure changes. Ignition of organic
chemical vapors may occur at typical elevated-temperature process conditions, especially in processes operating under vacuum if
subjected to sudden ingress of air, or outside process equipment operating under elevated pressure if sudden escape of vapors or
mists to the atmosphere occurs. Any proposed use of this product in elevated-temperature processes should be thoroughly
evaluated to assure that safe operating conditions are established and maintained.
Keep away from heat, sparks and open flames. Keep out of reach of children. Keep container tightly sealed when not in use. Store
in cool, well-ventilated place away from incompatible materials. Information on this Material Safety Data Sheets refers to ink used
in pens and markers; however, it applies to these inks in bulk. The inks are contained in capillary or valve reservoirs and will not
spill or leak under normal conditions.

possible (consult your safety equipment supplier). Wear chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA
regulation if splashing is possible.
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment -
Not usually necessary. For bulk material, if direct contact is possible, wear apron, boots, face shield, etc. as needed.
Work/Hygienic Practices -
Follow label instructions. Wash hands after use and before eating, drinking, smoking, using restrooms, etc.
