Allyl Alcohol
convulsions, and coma. If ingested may cause corrosion of gastrointestinal tract. It may
also cause corrosion of skin and eye on contact.

Skin: Exposure to this material can result in absorption through skin causing a significant health
hazard. May cause immediate skin irritation and blistering.

Inhalation: Overexposure may cause coughing, shortness of breath, dizziness, intoxication and

Eye: Corrosive to eyes. May cause destruction of eye tissue.

Ingestion: Not a likely route of exposure. Swallowing this material will result in serious health hazard,
potentially leading to collapse and death.

Chronic Health See component summary.
鈥? Allyl Alcohol Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause severe irritation of the nose, throat and lungs,
as well as liver and kidney damage.

Aggravated by Personnel with preexisting skin disorders or chronic respiratory diseases should avoid
Exposure: exposure to this product. This material or its emissions may cause damage to kidney and
liver and/or aggravate existing disorders.

General: Assess rapidly and aggressively., Prompt action is essential.

Inhalation: If overcome by exposure, remove victim to fresh air immediately. Give oxygen or artificial
respiration as needed. Obtain emergency medical attention.

Eye: Prompt action is essential. Immediately flush eyes thoroughly with plenty of water and
continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. Direct contact may result in corneal injury.
Obtain emergency medical attention.

Skin: Immediately remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and
water. Flush with lukewarm water for 15 minutes. Obtain emergency medical attention.

Ingestion: Prompt action is essential. If even minor quantity swallowed, give lukewarm water (pint/
1/2 litre) and induce vomiting if victim completely conscious/alert. Obtain emergency
medical attention.

Detoxification If patient is comatose, post ictal, has a decreased level of consciousness, or
Procedures: depressed/absent gag reflex, perform gastric lavage. Treat burns or allergic reactions
conventionally after decontamination.

Flammability OSHA/NFPA Class IB Flammable Liquid.
Flash Point / Method: ~ 21 掳C(70 掳F)(Closed Cup)

Temperature: 378 掳C (713 掳F)

Flammable Limits: LOWER: 2.5 vol%

UPPER: 18 vol%

Combustion Thermal decomposition may produce oxides of carbon and other toxic gases and liberate
Products: heat and pressure.

Special Conditions to On exposure to high temperature, may decompose, releasing toxic/flammable vapors.
Avoid: Fine sprays/mists may be combustible at temperatures below normal flash point. When
mixed with air and exposed to ignition source, vapors can burn in open or explode if
confined. Vapors may be heavier than air. May travel long distances along the ground
before igniting and flashing back to vapor source.

Extinguishing Media: Suitable: SMALL FIRE: Use dry chemicals, CO2, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam.
LARGE FIRE: Use water spray, water fog or alcohol-resistant foam.

Unsuitable: Do not use solid water stream.

Fire Fighting Protective Equipment/Clothing: Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing
Instructions: apparatus (SCBA). Wear chemical protective clothing that is specifically recommended by
the manufacturer. It may provide little or no thermal protection. Structural firefighters
protective clothing will only provide limited protection.

INSTRUCTIONS: Poisonous gas(es) may be generated without warning on release from
confinement/high temperature decomposition or rupture of closed containers/water contact,
all of which will greatly increase hazards of firefighting. Move containers form fire area if
you can do it without risk. Dike fire control water for later disposal; do not scatter material.
Fight fire from maximum distance or use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles.
Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out. Withdraw
immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank.
Always stay away from tanks engulfed in fire. For massive fire, use unmanned hose
holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn.

Release Response: Extremely flammable liquid. Release can cause fire/explosion/human health

hazard/contaminate water supplies/be toxic to aquatic life. Fully encapsulating, vapor
protective clothing should be worn for spills and leaks with no fire. Eliminate all sources of
ignition. All equipment used when handling this product must be grounded. Do not touch
or walk through spilled material. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Prevent entry into
waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. A vapor suppressing foam may be used
to reduce vapors. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material
and transfer to containers. Use clean non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material. Dike
large spills and place materials in salvage containers. Water spray may reduce vapor; but
may not prevent ignition in closed spaces.

Handling: For industrial use only. Use only non-sparking tools. Extinguish all ignition sources.
Carefully vent any internal pressure before removing closure. Containers must be properly
grounded before beginning transfer. Handle empty containers with care; vapor/residue
may be flammable. If any residual product may be present, total encapsulating impervious
protective suits, gloves, and boots should be worn.

Storage: Store only in tightly closed, properly vented containers away from heat, sparks, open flame
and strong oxidizing agents. Vapor space above stored liquid may be flammable/explosive
unless blanketed with inert gas. Store closed drums with bung in up position.

Engineering Both local exhaust and general room ventilation are usually required.
Personal Protection:
Inhalation: A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 or ANSI Z88.2
requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant respirator use.

Skin: Wear chemical resistant gloves such as: Butyl rubber. or Teflon. Impervious protective
suit with integral or tight-fitting gloves, boots, and full head and face protection must be
worn. The equipment must be cleaned thoroughly after each use.

Eye: Eye protection, including both chemical splash goggles and face shield, must be worn
when possibility exists for eye contact due to splashing/spraying liquid, airborne particles,
or vapor.

Other Hygienic Selection of appropriate personal protective equipment should be based on an evaluation
Practices: of the performance characteristics of the protective equipment relative to the task(s) to be
performed, conditions present, duration of use, and the hazards and/or potential hazards
that may be encountered during use. Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers
should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure.

Recommended Work
Practices Use good personal hygiene practices. Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking, or
using toilet facilities. Promptly remove soiled clothing/wash thoroughly before reuse.
