Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Wear canister type mask.
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
Evacuate area and ventilate. Wear protective equipment. If required, use an inert absrobent. Sweep up and place in an appropriate container for disposal. Wash contaminated surfaces.
Stable-vapors can explode when contacted with heat or flame.
Foam, carbon dioxide dry chemical, or carbon tetrachloride.
Moderate when exposed to heat or flame.
Abnormally low blood pressure or elevated blood pressure may occur as a result of glycol toxicity. Rapid breathing has been reported with ethylene glycol and glycol ether ingestions. CNS depression, seizures, coma, cerebral edema, and delayed neurologic sequelae may occur following most glycol exposures. CNS symptoms are common following exposures to most glycols. Exposures to glycols have resulted in teratogenicity, specifically craniofacial and neural tube closure defects and skeletal dysplasia in animal studies.
Nausea and vomiting are frequent early findings.
Tachypnea, respiratory irritation, and pulmonary edema have been reported following exposure to glycols.
Eye irritation may occur with any of the glycols.
Emesis: ipecac-induced vomiting is not recommended because of the potential for cns depression. Consider after ingestion of a potentially life-threatening amount of poison if it can be performed soon after ingestion (generally within 1 hour). Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
If symptoms develop, move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Keep person warm and quiet; seek immediate medical attention.
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse.
If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. Flush eyes gently with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids apart; seek immediate medical attention.
