Protection for Firefighters: Self-contained breathing apparatus or full-face positive pressure airline masks. 4-Severe
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions: Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame.
Provide sufficient ventilation, use explosion-proof exhaust ventilation equipment or wear suitable respiratory protective equipment.
Prevent contact with skin or eyes (see section 8).
Environmental Precautions: Prevent product or liquids contaminated with product from entering sewers, drains, soil or open water course.
Methods for Cleaning up: Clean up with sand or other inert absorbent material. Transfer to a closable steel vessel.
Materials not to be used for clean up: Aluminum or plastic containers
SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling: Avoid breathing of vapor, avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.
Keep away from ignition sources, use only electrically grounded handling equipment and ensure adequate ventilation/fume exhaust hoods.
Do not eat; drink or smoke while handling.
Storage: Store in ventilated room or shade below 27?(80?and away from direct sunlight.
Keep away from ignition sources and incompatible materials: caustics, ammonia, inorganic acids, chlorinated compounds, strong oxidizers and isocyanates.
Follow all precautionary information on container label, product bulletins and solvent cementing literature.
SECTION 8 - PRECAUTIONS TO CONTROL EXPOSURE / PERSONAL PROTECTION
EXPOSURE LIMITS: Component ACGIH TLV ACGIH STEL OSHA PEL OSHA STEL:
Tetrahydrofuran (THF) 50 ppm 100 ppm 200 ppm
Cyclohexanone 20 ppm 50 ppm 50 ppm
Acetone 500 ppm 750 ppm 1000 ppm
Engineering Controls: Use local exhaust as needed.
Monitoring: Maintain breathing zone airborne concentrations below exposure limits.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
Eye Protection: Avoid contact with eyes, wear splash-proof chemical goggles, face shield, safety glasses (spectacles) with brow guards and side shields,
etc. as may be appropriate for the exposure.
Skin Protection: Prevent contact with the skin as much as possible. Butyl rubber gloves should be used for frequent immersion.
Use of solvent-resistant gloves or solvent-resistant barrier cream should provide adequate protection when normal adhesive application
practices and procedures are used for making structural bonds.
Respiratory Protection: Prevent inhalation of the solvents. Use in a well-ventilated room. Open doors and/or windows to ensure airflow and air changes. Use local
exhaust ventilation to remove airborne contaminants from employee breathing zone and to keep contaminants below levels listed above.
With normal use, the Exposure Limit Value will not usually be reached. When limits approached, use respiratory protection equipment.
