SECTION 3 -- EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES
Eye Contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing/shoes. Flush skin with water. Follow by washing with soap and water. If irritation
occurs, get medical attention. Do not reuse clothing until cleaned.
Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air and provide oxygen if breathing is difficult. Give artificial respiration if not breathing.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration of liquid into
the lungs. Get medical attention.
SECTION 4 -- PHYSICAL DATA
The following data represent approximate or typical values. They do not constitute product specifications.
Boiling Range: 354-372O (F) Vapor Density: Heavier than air
Evaporation Rate: Slower than ether % Volatile By Volume: Approx. 100%
Weight Per Gallon: 6.33 lbs.
Solubility in Water: Negligible
Trade Name: ODORLESS MINERAL SPIRITS Page 2 of 3
SECTION 5 -- FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA
Flammability Classification: Combustible Liquid - Class II.
Flash Point: 120O F. Tag. Closed Cup (Minimum)
Lower Explosive Limit: 1.3%
Autoignition Temperature: 660OF. (Approximate)
Extinguishing Media: Carbon dioxide, foam, dry chemical, water spray. Do not use direct water stream; it will spread fire.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Do not store or mix with strong oxidants.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Use air-supplied rescue equipment for enclosed areas. Cool exposed containers with water.
SECTION 6 -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA
THRESHOLD LIMIT VALUE: See Section 2.
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE
Eye Contact: May cause irritation, discomfort, redness and swelling of the eye.
Skin Contact: Liquid is slightly irritating to the skin. Prolonged or repeated contact can result in defatting and drying of the skin
which may result in skin irritation and dermatitis.
Inhalation: High vapor/ aerosol concentrations (attainable at elevated temperatures well above ambient) are irritating to the eyes
and the respiratory tract, and may cause headaches, dizziness, anaesthesia, drowsiness, unconsciousness, and
other central nervous system effects, including death effects, including death.
Ingestion: Ingestion may result in vomiting, aspiration (breathing) of vomitus into the lungs must be avoided as even small
quantities may result in aspiration pneumonitis, possibly progressing to death.
Chronic: Repeated skin contact may aggravate an existing dermatitis (skin condition).
Carcinogenicity: Components of this product have not been identified as carcinogens by NTP, IARC,or OSHA.
SECTION 7 -- REACTIVITY DATA
Conditions to Avoid: Heat, sparks and flame. Moderate risk of peroxide formation. Moderate peroxide hazard on storage and
concentration. Inhibitor not been added to mitigate peroxide hazard.
Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid): Strong oxidizing agents like liquid chlorine or concentrated oxygen.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Thermal decomposition may yield carbon monoxide.
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
SECTION 8 -- SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
Steps to be taken in case material is spilled or released: Remove ignition sources, evacuate area, avoid breathing vapor or contact with liquid. Recover free liquid
or stop leak if possible. Dike large spills and use sand for small spills. Keep spilled material out of sewers, ditches and bodies of water.
Waste disposal method: Incinerate under safe conditions; dispose of in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
SECTION 9 -- SAFE HANDLING AND USE INFORMATION
Respiratory Protection: Appropriate vapor canister, self-contained breathing apparatus or supplied-air hose mask, if needed.
Ventilation: Sufficient, in volume and pattern, to keep workroom concentration below current applicable OSHA safety and health
requirements. See Section 2. Use explosion-proof equipment. No smoking.
Protective Gloves: Rubber or neoprene.
Eye Protection: Chemical safety goggles.
Other Protective Equipment: Impervious clothing or boots, if needed.

SECTION 10 -- SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
Dept. of Labor Storage Category: Combustible Liquid - Class II
Hygienic Practices: Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Keep containers closed when not in use. Avoid eye contact. Avoid
prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Wash skin with soap and water after contact.
Additional Precautions: Ground containers when transferring liquid to prevent static accumulation and discharge. Additional information
regarding safe handling of products with static accumulation potential can be ordered by contacting the American
Petroleum Institute (API) for API Recommended Practice 2003, entitled "Protection Against Ignitions Arising Out of
Static, Lighting, and Stray Currents" (American Petroleum Institute, 1720 L Street Northwest, Washington,DC 20005),
or the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) for NFPA 77 entitled "Static Electricity" (National Fire Protection
Association, 1 Batterymarch Park, P.O. Box 9101, Quincy, MA 02269-9101).
Empty Container Warning: "Empty" containers retain residue (liquid and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze,
solder, drill, grind or expose such containers to heat, flame, sparks or other sources of ignition; they may explode and
cause injury or death. Do not attempt to clean since residue is difficult to remove. "Empty" drums should be
completely drained, properly bunged and promptly returned to supplier or disposed of in an environmentally safe
manner and in accordance with governmental regulations.
