FIRE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Ansul "Purple K" potassium bicarbonate dry chemical, any appropriately sized ABC dry chemical, carbon dioxide or foam extinguisher can be used for small fires. Use
of a water fog by trained personnel can extinguish small/large fires.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES
Evacuate enclosed areas. Stay upwind. Close quarters or confined spaces require self-contained breathing apparatus, positive pressure hose masks or airline masks.
Use of a water fog by trained personnel can extinguish small/large fires and avoid water flow or water streams/spray distributing burning material or contaminated water
over a large area or into sewers or storm drains. Use water spray to cool containers, to flush spills from source of ignition and to disperse vapors.
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
Fire hazard because of low flash point and high volatility. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel to source(s) of ignition at or near floor or lower levels and may flash

SECTION V - HEALTH HAZARD DATA
OF ENTRY: X Inhalation X Skin Contact Eye Contact Ingestion
EFFECT OF OVEREXPOSURE
Inhalation: Severe overexposure may result in nausea, dizziness, headache. Can cause drowsiness, irritation of eyes and nasal passages.
Skin Contact: Skin irritant. Liquid contact may remove natural skin oils resulting in skin irritation. Dermatitis may occur with prolonged contact.
Skin Absorption: Prolonged or widespread exposure may result in the absorption of harmful amounts of material.
Eye Contact: Overexposure may result in severe eye injury with corneal or conjuctival inflammation on contact with the liquid. Vapors slightly
Ingestion: Moderately toxic. May cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. May cause mental sluggishness.
CHRONIC: High vapor concentrations may produce CNS depression. Depression may be evidenced by headache, dizziness and nausea. Aspirated
material may cause severe lung damage and present a significant hazard.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Individuals with pre-existing diseases of the eyes, skin or respiratory system may have increased
susceptibility to the toxicity of excessive exposures.
EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES
Inhalation: If overcome by vapors, remove to fresh air and if breathing stopped, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call
Eye Contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for 15 minutes and call a physician.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation develops, get
Ingestion: Give 1 or 2 glasses of water or milk. Do not induce vomiting. Call physician or poison control center immediately.
SECTION VI - REACTIVITY
STABILITY UNSTABLE CONDITIONS TO AVOID
STABLE X Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame and other sources of ignition.
(MATERIALS TO AVOID) Caustics, ammonia, inorganic acids, chlorinated compounds, strong oxidizers and isocyanates.
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS
When forced to burn, this product gives out carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen chloride and smoke.
HAZARDOUS MAY OCCUR CONDITIONS TO AVOID
POLYMERIZATION WILL NOT OCCUR X Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame and other sources of ignition.
SECTION VII - SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED
Eliminate all ignition sources. Avoid breathing of vapors. Keep liquid out of eyes. Flush with large amount of water. Contain liquid with sand or earth. Absorb with
sand or nonflammable absorbent material and transfer into steel drums for recovery or disposal. Prevent liquid from entering drains.
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD
Follow local, State and Federal regulations. Consult disposal expert. Can be disposed of by incineration. Excessive quantities should not be permitted to enter
drains. Empty containers should be air dried before disposing. Hazardous Waste Code (CA): 214.
SECTION VIII - SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION (Specify type)
Atmospheric levels should be maintained below established exposure limits contained in Section II. If airborne concentrations exceed those limits, use of a NIOSH
approved organic vapor cartridge respirator with full face-piece is recommended. The effectiveness of an air purifying respirator is limited. Use it only for a single
short-term exposure. For emergency and other conditions where short-term exposure guidelines may be exceeded, use an approved positive pressure
self-contained breathing apparatus.
Use only with adequate ventilation. Do not use in close quarters or confined spaces. 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 in Section II. Use only explosion-proof
PROTECTIVE GLOVES PVA coated rubber gloves for frequent dipping/immersion. Use of latex/nitrile EYE PROTECTION Splashproof chemical goggles,
surgical gloves or solvent resistant barrier creme should provide adequate protection when normal solvent- face shield, safety glasses (spectacles) with brow
cement welding practices and procedures are used for solvent welding of plastic sheet/pipe joints. guards and side shields, etc. as appropriate for
OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND HYGIENIC PRACTICES
Impervious apron and a source of running water to flush or wash the eyes and skin in case of contact.
SECTION IX - SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORING
Store in the shade between 40癋 - 110癋 (5癈 - 43.7癈). Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame and other sources of ignition. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapor.
Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Train employees on all special handling procedures before they work with this product.
Follow all precautionary information given on container label, product bulletins and our solvent cementing literature. All material handling equipment should be
