Hazards and Protection.
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Flammables-area.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with adequate ventilation. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Avoid contact with heat, sparks and flame. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Build dikes to contain flow as necessary. Use water spray to knock-down vapors.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
May react vigorously with strong oxidizing agents May react exothermically with reducing agents to release hydrogen gas.
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide.
Fire Extinguishing Agents Not to Be Used: Water.Fire Extinguishing Agents: Dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide.
Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. May polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water.
Irritating vapors and toxic gases, such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, may be formed when involved in fire.
The toxological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated.
Causes respiratory tract irritation. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation.
Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. May cause irritation or burns.
May cause irritation or burns.
Seek medical assistance.
Remove to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Flush with water.
Flush with water for at least 15 min., lifting lids occasionally.
