3 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Emergency Overview
Clear liquid with mercaptan odor
DANGER!
FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR.
CAUSES EYE AND SKIN BURNS. MAY CAUSE BLINDNESS.
MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED.
MAY CAUSE BLOOD EFFECTS AFTER REPEATED EXPOSURE

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, no more than moderately toxic if
absorbed through skin and corrosive to skin and eyes. Studies in laboratory animals indicate this material may cause
blood effects.

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. Destroy contaminated shoes.

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.


5 FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Fire and Explosive Properties
Auto-Ignition Temperature NE
Flash Point 27 C Flash Point Method
Flammable Limits- Upper NE
NE
Lower
Extinguishing Media
Use water spray, carbon dioxide, foam or dry chemical.

Fire Fighting Instructions
Water may be ineffective. Use water spray or water fog to cool surrounding surfaces and prevent fire damage
or rupture of containers. Fire fighters and others who may be exposed to products of combustion should wear
full fire fighting 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:
Sulfur oxides
Oxides of carbon


6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

In Case of Spill or Leak
Ventilate the area. Contain spill by building a dike using absorbent material. Consult with environmental
engineer or professional to determine if neutralization is appropriate and for handling procedures for residual
materials. Do not use solid bleach for neutralization, as fire or violent reaction can occur. Collect the liquid
and solid absorbent into a drum approved for waste disposal. Flush area with water. 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

Arkema Inc.

7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling
Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing.
Keep container closed.
Use only with adequate ventilation.
Wash thoroughly after handling.
Keep away from heat, sparks and flame.
Do not taste or swallow.


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
Wear appropriate chemical resistant protective clothing and chemical resistant gloves to prevent skin
contact. Neoprene 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

8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

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.


Airborne Exposure Guidelines for Ingredients

The components of this product have no established Airborne Exposure Guidelines
-Only those components with exposure limits are printed in this section.
-Skin contact limits designated with a "Y" above have skin contact effect. Air sampling alone is insufficient to accurately quantitate
exposure. Measures to prevent significant cutaneous absorption may be required.
-ACGIH Sensitizer designator with a value of "Y" above means that exposure to this material may cause allergic reactions.
-WEEL-AIHA Sensitizer designator with a value of "Y" above means that exposure to this material may cause allergic skin reactions.
