Medical conditions : Persons with chronic respiratory or skin diseases may be at increased risk from exposure.
aggravated by
Overexposure : Restlessness, slow reaction time, slurred speech, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, ataxia, intoxication,
/signs/symptoms sensory disturbances, rapid pulse, sweating, drowsiness, stupor and finally coma. Hypertension,
tachycardia, cold pale skin, hyperthermia, slow stertorous respiration. Death from respiratory or
circulatory failure or from aspiration pneumonitis.
See toxicological information (section 11)

4 First aid measures
Eye contact : Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15
minutes, keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin contact : In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and
shoes. Cold water may be used.Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Get medical attention.
Inhalation : If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give
oxygen. Get medical attention if symptoms appear.
Ingestion : Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by
mouth to an unconscious person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician
immediately. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Notes to physician : Support respiratory and cardiovascular function.

5 Fire fighting measures

Explosion hazards in presence : Risks of explosion of the product in presence of static discharge: Yes.
of various substances Non-explosive in presence of shocks.
Vapour-air mixtures are explosive within flammable limits.
Fire fighting media : SMALL FIRE: Use DRY chemical powder.
and instructions LARGE FIRE: Use alcohol foam, water spray or fog. Cool containing vessels with water jet in order to
prevent pressure build-up, autoignition or explosion.
Protective clothing (fire) : Wear MSHA/NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus or equivalent and full protective
Special remarks on fire hazards : Heated containers may rupture violently from excessive heat.

Special remarks on explosion : Acetone may form explosive mixtures with chromic aldehyde, hydrogen peroxide, nitric acid, acetic
hazards acid.

6 Accidental release measures
Small spill and leak : Dilute with water and mop up, or absorb with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate
waste disposal container.
Large spill and leak : Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Stop leak if without risk. Absorb with
DRY earth, sand or other non-combustible material. Do not get water inside container. Do not
touch spilled material. Use water spray to reduce vapors. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or
confined areas; dike if needed. Call for assistance on disposal.
7 Handling and storage
Handling : Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Keep container closed. Use only with adequate ventilation.
To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding
containers and equipment before transferring material. Use explosion-proof electrical (ventilating,
lighting and material handling) equipment.
Storage : Store in a segregated and approved area. Keep container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Keep
container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark or

8 Exposure controls, personal protection
Engineering controls : Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of vapors below their
respective threshold limit value. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are proximal to the work-station
Personal protection
Eyes : Splash goggles.
Body : Chemical resistant protective suit.
Respiratory : Vapor respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent. Wear appropriate
respirator when ventilation is inadequate.
Hands : Butyl rubber gloves.
Feet : Chemical resistant safety boots.
Protective clothing (pictograms) :

Personal protection in case of a : Splash goggles. Full suit. Vapor respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self-contained breathing apparatus should be
used to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient; consult a
large spill
specialist BEFORE handling this product.
