Section 3 - Hazards Identification
Flammable Liquid. Irritant. Harmful if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin.
Section 4 - First-Aid Measures
Inhalation: Symptoms of exposure may include light-headedness; headache; nausea; numbness in
the extremities; muscle weakness and irritation to mucous membranes. If large amounts are
inhaled, remove the victim to fresh air.
If breathing is difficult give oxygen.
breathing has stopped, administer mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Keep the affected person
warm and at rest. Contact physician. Skin Contact: Skin irritant. May cause dermatitis. In
case of contact, immediately wash skin with soap and copious amounts of water. Remove and
wash contaminated clothing promptly. Eye Contact: Vapor or mist is irritating to the eyes.
Contamination of the eyes should be treated by immediate and prolonged irrigation with
copious amounts of water by separating the eyelids with fingers. Contact Physician.
Ingestion: If swallowed, get medical attention immediately.
Section 5 - Fire-Fighting Measures
Extinguishing Media: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder, water spray, or standard foam.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Wear full protective clothing and self contained positive
pressure breathing apparatus certified by NIOSH when fighting chemically related fires.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Volatile and highly flammable.
Vapor may travel
considerable distance to source of ignition and flash back. Container explosion may occur
under fire conditions.
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
Shut off all sources of ignition. Use noncombustible absorbent to absorb the spill. Due to
the small quantity involved, a leaking ampoule may be placed in a plastic bag containing
absorbent and disposed of as hazardous waste according to local regulations. Used absorbent
