Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Keep tightly closed in a cool place in a tightly closed container.
Handling
Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed.
Protection
Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other type safety glasses. Wear resistant gloves such as: nitrile rubber, polyvinyl chloride To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
Respirators
If overexposure has been determined or documented, a NIOSH/MSHA jointly approved air supplied respirator is advised in absence of proper environmental control. OSHA regulations also permit other NIOSH/MSHA respirators under specified conditions.
Small spills/leaks
Small Spill - Ventilate area. Allow to solidify, scrape up with spatula. Large Spill - Prevent run-off to sewers, streams or other bodies of water. If run-off occurs, notify proper authorities as required, that a spill has occurred. Persons not wearing protective equipment should be excluded from area of spill until clean-up has been completed. Allow to solidify, shovel into containers. Eliminate all ignition sources.
Stability
Stable.
Incompatibilities
Amines, ammonia, strong alkalies, strong mineral acids, strong oxidizing agents.
Decomposition
Acid vapors, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.

Fire.
Flash Point,°C
102
Fire fighting
Extinguish fire using alcohol foam, water fog, dry chemical. Water may be used to keep fire-exposed containers cool until fire is out. Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in the positive pressure demand mode with appropriate turn-out gear and chemical resistant personal protective equipment.
Hazards
Flammable toxic gas may be released, if thermally decomposed.
Combustion products
Flammable toxic gas may be released, if thermally decomposed.

Exposure effects
   Ingestion
Swallowing small amounts of this material during normal handling is not likely to cause harmful effects. Swallowing large amounts may be harmful.
   Inhalation
Irritating to eyes and respiratory tract in high concentrations. May cause hair disorder or damage.
   Skin
May cause mild skin irritation. Symptoms may include redness and burning of skin.
   Eyes
Can cause severe eye irritation. Symptoms include stinging, tearing, redness, and swelling of eyes. Can injure eye tissue.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Seek medical attention. If individual is drowsy or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth; place individual on the left side with the head down. Contact a physician, medical facility, or poison control center for advice about whether to induce vomiting. If possible, do not leave individual unattended.
   Inhalation
Use proper respiratory protection. Remove the victim from the exposure. Administer artificial respiration if breathing stops. Keep at rest. Call for prompt medical attention.
   Skin
Flush with large amount of water. Use soap if available.
   Eyes
If material gets into the eyes, immediately flush eyes gently with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids apart. If symptoms develop as a result of vapor exposure, immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air before flushing as recommended above. Seek immediate medical attention.
