3 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Emergency Overview
Clear, colorless liquid with ammonia-like odor.
DANGER!
FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR.
CAUSES EYE AND SKIN BURNS. MAY CAUSE BLINDNESS.
CAUSES DIGESTIVE TRACT BURNS.
MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED.
MAY BE HARMFUL IF ABSORBED THROUGH SKIN
MAY CAUSE NAUSEA, HEADACHE OR DIZZINESS.


Potential Health Effects

Inhalation and skin contact are expected to be the primary routes of occupational exposure to this material. Based on
single exposure animal tests, it is considered to be slightly toxic if swallowed or absorbed through skin, practically non-
toxic if inhaled and corrosive to eyes and skin. Vapors may be severely irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract.
This material has a strong objectionable odor that may cause nausea, headache, or dizziness. Temporary and
reversible visual disturbances characterized by mildly blurred vision, a blue-gray discolorization of sight (blue haze) or
halo vision (appearance of a halo when looking at light sources) may occur. If swallowed, this material may cause mild

to severe burns to the mouth, throat and digestive tract. Medical conditions that may be aggravated by exposure to this
material include lung disease or limited respiratory capacity.


4 FIRST AID MEASURES

IF IN EYES, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.

IF ON SKIN, immediately flush with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical
attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.

IF SWALLOWED, do NOT induce vomiting. Give water to drink. Get medical attention immediately. NEVER
GIVE ANYTHING BY MOUTH TO AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON.

IF INHALED, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give
oxygen. Get medical attention.

Use water spray, carbon dioxide, foam or dry chemical.

Fire Fighting Instructions
Fire fighters and others who may be exposed to products of combustion should wear full fire fighting turn out
gear (full Bunker Gear) and self-contained breathing apparatus (pressure demand NIOSH approved or
equivalent). Fire fighting equipment should be thoroughly decontaminated after use.
Fire and Explosion Hazards
When burned, the following hazardous products of combustion can occur: Oxides of carbon and nitrogen

6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

In Case of Spill or Leak
Extinguish or turn off all ignition sources. Ventilate the space involved. Wear appropriate personal protection
equipment as indicated in Section 8 of this MSDS. Contain spill with inert materials. Construct a dike to
prevent spreading. Collect with non-sparking tools to a suitable container. Prevent waterway contamination.
Absorb liquid onto inert absorbent and place in DOT approved drums for disposal. Consult a regulatory
specialist to determine appropriate state or local reporting requirements, for assistance in waste
characterization and/or hazardous waste disposal and other requirements listed in pertinent environmental
permits.

7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling
Do not taste or swallow.
Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing.
Keep away from heat, sparks and flame.

7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

Keep container closed.
Use only with adequate ventilation.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Use grounding and bonding connection when transferring material to
prevent static discharges, fire or explosion.


CONTAINER HAZARDOUS WHEN EMPTY. Emptied container retains vapor and product residue. Follow
labeled warnings even after container is emptied. RESIDUAL VAPORS MAY EXPLODE ON IGNITION. DO
NOT CUT, DRILL GRIND OR WELD ON OR NEAR THIS CONTAINER. Improper disposal or reuse of this
container may be dangerous and/or illegal.

Storage
Store in well ventilated area away from heat and sources of ignition such as flame, sparks and static
electricity. Ensure that all storage and handling equipment is properly rated, grounded and installed to satisfy
electrical classification requirements. Static electricity may accumulate and create a fire hazard. All storage
containers, including containers such as drums, cylinders and IBC鈥檚, must be bonded and grounded during
filling and emptying operations. Store away from oxidizers and reactive materials. Keep container tightly
closed. Observe all federal, state and local regulations and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
Codes which pertain to the specific local conditions of storage and use, including OSHA 29 CFR 1910.106
and NFPA 30, 70, 77, and 497.


8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

Engineering Controls
Investigate engineering techniques to reduce exposures. Provide ventilation if necessary to minimize
exposures. If practical, use local mechanical exhaust ventilation at sources of air contamination such as
open process equipment. Consult ACGIH ventilation manual or NFPA Standard 91 for design of exhaust
systems.

Eye / Face Protection
Where there is potential for eye contact, wear a face shield, chemical goggles, and have eye flushing
equipment immediately available.

Skin Protection
Butyl rubber or Nitrile Gloves should be worn when handling this material. Wear chemical goggles, a face
shield, and chemical resistant clothing such as a rubber apron when splashing may occur. Rinse immediately
if skin is contaminated. Remove contaminated clothing promptly and wash before reuse. Clean protective
equipment before reuse. Provide a safety shower at any location where skin contact can occur. Wash skin
thoroughly after handling.

Respiratory Protection
Avoid breathing vapor or mist. When airborne exposure limits are exceeded (see below), use NIOSH
approved respiratory protection equipment appropriate to the material and/or its components. Full facepiece
equipment is recommended and, if used, replaces need for face shield and chemical goggles. Consult
respirator manufacturer to determine appropriate type equipment for given application. Observe respirator
use limitations specified by NIOSH or the manufacturer. For emergency and other conditions where
exposure limit may be significantly exceeded, use an approved full face positive-pressure, self-contained
breathing apparatus or positive-pressure airline with auxiliary self-contained air supply. Respiratory
protection programs must comply with 29 CFR 搂 1910.134.
