SECTION 3 – HEALTH HAZARDS
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE TARGET ORGANS HEALTH HAZARDS
Eye Contact Eye Moderate eye irritant.
Skin Contact Skin Moderate skin irritant.
Ingestion May cause skin sensitization.
Skin Absorption EXPOSURE STANDARDS
No standards established for the product. Maintain air contaminant concentrations in the workplace at the lowest feasible levels. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE (Acute effects)
Contact with the skin may cause dryness (defeating), itching, and/or rash. Inhalation of mists may cause irritation in the respiratory tract. Contact
with the skin or eyes causes moderate eye and skin irritation, redness and discomfort which is transient. Coughing and chest pain may result.
Product is absorbed through the skin and may cause nausea, headache and general discomfort. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE (Possible Long Term Effects)
Repeated and/or prolonged exposure may cause allergic reaction/sensitization. Repeated and/or prolonged exposures may result in: adverse eye
effects (such as conjunctivitis or corneal damage), adverse skin effects (such as defeating, rash, or irritation ). Dryness of nasal passages may be
experienced when material is inhaled over a long period of time. MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
Skin disorders and allergies CARCINOGENS UNDER OSHA, ACGIH, NTP, IARC, OTHER
This product contains no carcinogens in concentration of 0.1 percent or greater.
SECTION 4 – FIRST AID EYE CONTACT
Hold eyelids apart and immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical advice. SKIN CONTACT
Remove product and immediately flush affected area with water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Seek medical advice. Launder contaminated clothing prior to reuse. INHALATION
Move patient to fresh air. If breathing has stopped or is labored give assisted respiration (e.g. mouth-to mouth). Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn victim’s head to the side. Seek medical advice. INGESTION
If swallowed, call a physician immediately. Note to Physicians: Remove stomach contents by gastric suction or induce vomiting only as directed
by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
SECTION 5 – FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA FLASH POINT (closed cup) 103.89 C (219)F UPPER EXPLOSION LIMIT (UEL) No data LOWER EXPLOSION LIMIT (LEL) No data AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE No data FIRE HAZARD CLASSIFICATION (OSHA/NFPA)
Ignition will give rise to a Class B fire. In case of large fore use: Water Spray, Alcohol Foam. In case of small fire use: Carbon Dioxide (C02),
Dry chemical, dry sand or limestone. SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES
Firefighters should wear butyl rubber boots, gloves, and body suit and a self-contained breathing apparatus. UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
May generate toxic or irritating combustion products. May generate carbon monoxide gas. May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. May
generate ammonia gas.
SECTION 6 – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES CANTAMINENT TECHNIQUES
(Removal of ignition sources, diking etc.) Stop the leak, if possible. Reduce vapor spreading with a water spray. Shut off or remove all ignition sources. Construct a dike to prevent spreading. CLEAN-UP PROCEDURES
If recovery is not feasible, admix with dry soil, sand or non-reactive absorbent (sodium bisulfate) and place in a container or dumpster pending
disposal. Flush area with water spray. Clean-up personnel must be equipped with self-contained breathing apparatus and butyl rubber protective
clothing. For large spills, recover spilled material with a vacuum truck. OTHER EMERGENCY ADVICE
Wear protective clothing, boots, gloves, and eye protections
SECTION 7 – HANDLING AND STORAGE
STORAGE Keep away from: acids, alkalis, and oxidizers. Keep in cool, dry, ventilated storage and in closed containers. Store in steel containers
located outdoors, above ground, and surrounded by dikes to contain spills or leaks. Do not store in iron or other reactive metal containers. HANDLING Avoid with skin or eyes. When handling, do not drink, or smoke.
SECTION 8 – PERSONAL PROTECTION/EXPOSURE CONTROLS
EYE PROTECTION HAND PROTECTION
Splash proof goggles. In emergency, use goggles with a full-face shield. Neoprene rubber, impermeable, or cuffed butyl gloves.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION PROTECTIVE CLOHTING
Not required under normal clothing. Long sleeved clothing.
WORK AND HYGENIC PRACTICES
Provide accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
Wash at end of each workshift. Use appropriate skin lotion.
Discard contaminated leather articles.

SECTION 10 – STABILITY AND REACTIVITY CHEMICAL STABILITY Stable INCOMPATABILITY (Materials to avoid)
Mineral acids (i.e. sulfuric, phosphoric, etc.). Alkalis (i.e. sodium or potassium hydroxide etc.). Organic acids (i.e. acetic acid, citric acid, etc.). oxidizing agents (i.e. perchlorates, nitrates, etc.) Reactive metals (i.e. sodium, calcium, zinc, etc.). Sodium or Calcium Hypochlorite. CAUTION! N-Nitrosamines, many of which are known to be potent carcinogens, may be formed when the product comes in contact with nitrous acid, nitrites or atmospheres with high nitrous oxide concentrations. Product slowly corrodes copper, aluminum, zinc and galvanized surfaces. Amine reaction with peroxides may result in violent decomposition of peroxide possibly creating an explosion. Materials reactive with hydroxyl compounds. Nitrates, nitrosating agents. A reaction accompanies by large heat release occurs when the product is mixed with acids. Heat generated may be sufficient to cause vigorous boiling creating a hazard due to splashing or splattering of hot material.
HAZARDOUS DECOMOSITION PRODUCTS (from burning, heating or reaction with other materials).
Carbon monoxide in a fire. Carbon dioxide in a fire. Ammonia when heated. Nitrogen oxides in a fire. Irritating and toxic fumes at elevated temperatures. Nitric acid in a fire. Nitosamines and Aldehydes. Organic acid vapors. Nitrogen oxide can react with water vapors to form corrosive nitric acid. HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION Will not occur.
