3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Most Important Hazards: Severe eye irritant. Flammable liquid.
Main Symptoms of Overexposure: EYES- Causes severe irritation, experienced as discomfort or pain, excess blinking, marked redness and
swelling of the conjunctiva. may cause chemical burns or the cornea; SKIN- Moderate skin irritation. Prolonged contact may cause
chemical burns, seen as marked redness or swelling; INHALATION- May cause irritation of the respiratory tract, experienced as nasal
discomfort and discharge, with chest pain, coughing, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, disturbed vision and
unconsciousness. Repeated or prolonged exposures to high concentrations may cause kidney and liver damage. INGESTION- May cause
nausea, vomiting, burning sensation in mouth and throat, and abdominal discomfort. HMIS: H-2, F-3, R-0
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Aid in breathing, if necessary, and get immediate medical attention.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Wash clothing
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes raising upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Get immediate medical
Ingestion: DO NOT induce vomiting. Keep person warm and quiet and get medical attention. Aspiration of the material into the lungs due
to vomiting can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal.
5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
Extinguishing media: Water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, and alcohol foam.
Specific Hazards: Flammable liquid. Do not pressurize, cut, weld or expose containers to flame or other sources of ignition. Vapors are
heavier than air and may travel along the ground or be moved by ventilation and be ignited by heat, pilot lights or other flames.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions: Eliminate all ignition sources.
Environmental precautions: Prevent runoff from entering drains, sewers or streams. May be toxic to fish
Methods of cleaning up: Absorb spill with vermiculite or other inert material, then place in a container for chemical waste. Small spills
should be flushed with large amounts of water. Larger spills should be collected for disposal.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling-Precautions: May cause eye burns. Harmful if absorbed through the skin. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Safe handling Advice: Keep away from heat, sparks and flames.
Storage-Conditions: Avoid excessive heat and sources of ignition. Store in a cool, clean, well ventilated non-smoking area in a sealed
Incompatible Products: Keep from contact with strong oxidizing agents.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROL/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering Measures: Good general ventilation should be used. Use local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to maintain
airborne levels below recommended exposure limits.
Personal Protective Equipment: Eliminate all ignition sources.
Respiratory Protection: If engineering controls do not maintain concentrations below recommended exposure limits, an approved
respirator should be used. Type: organic vapor.
Hand Protection: Where prolonged or repeated skin contact will occur, impervious gloves should be worn. Type: butyl
Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses with side shield or goggles.
Skin and Body Protection: Recommended Decontamination facilities: eye bath, safety shower, washing facilities.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Acute toxicity: Oral LD50 (rat, for Cyclohexanone)- 1.9 g/kg ;Dermal LD50 (rat, for Cyclohexanone)- 3.2 g/kg
Chronic Toxicity: Isophorone, when administered by stomach tube in corn oil at dosage levels of 250 or 500 mg/kg, of body weight, was associated with a
slightly increased incidence of renal and preputial tumors in male rats and of liver tumors in male mice but did not exhibit similar potential in either female
rates or mice Guinea pigs exposed to 4000 ppm of Cyclohexanone for a 6 hr period showed signs of CNS depression, lacrimation, salivation, depression of
body temperature and respiratory heart rate and opacity of the cornea. Liver and kidney damage reported in monkeys and rabbits (190 ppm) and rats (105.2
mg/m 3 ) due to Cyclohexanone.
Target Organs: Eyes, skin, respiratory system, central nervous system, liver, kidneys
Sensitization: No Specific Effects: May aggravate an existing condition of dermatitis.
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
