Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES


SWALLOWED
路 If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting.
路 If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if
possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration.
路 Observe the patient carefully.
路 Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness;
i.e. becoming unconscious.
路 Give water to rinse out mouth, then provide liquid slowly and as much as casualty can
comfortably drink.
路 Seek medical advice.
Avoid giving milk or oils.
Avoid giving alcohol.
If spontaneous vomiting appears imminent or occurs, hold patient's head down, lower than
their hips to help avoid possible aspiration of vomitus.

EYE
If this product comes in contact with the eyes:
路 Wash out immediately with fresh running water.
路 Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and
moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids.
路 If pain persists or recurs seek medical attention.
路 Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled
personnel.

SKIN
If skin or hair contact occurs:
路 Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available).
路 Seek medical attention in event of irritation.

INHALED
路 If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area.
路 Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested.
路 Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where
possible, prior to initiating first aid procedures.
路 Apply artificial respiration if not breathing, preferably with a demand valve
resuscitator, bag-valve mask device, or pocket mask as trained. Perform CPR if necessary.
路 Transport to hospital, or doctor.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN
Any material aspirated during vomiting may produce lung injury. Therefore emesis should
not be induced mechanically or pharmacologically. Mechanical means should be used if it

is considered necessary to evacuate the stomach contents; these include gastric lavage
after endotracheal intubation. If spontaneous vomiting has occurred after ingestion, the
patient should be monitored for difficult breathing, as adverse effects of aspiration
into the lungs may be delayed up to 48 hours.
For acute or short term repeated exposures to petroleum distillates or related
hydrocarbons:
路 Primary threat to life, from pure petroleum distillate ingestion and/or inhalation, is
respiratory failure.
路 Patients should be quickly evaluated for signs of respiratory distress (e.g. cyanosis,
tachypnoea, intercostal retraction, obtundation) and given oxygen. Patients with
inadequate tidal volumes or poor arterial blood gases (pO2 50 mm Hg) should be intubated.
路 Arrhythmias complicate some hydrocarbon ingestion and/or inhalation and
electrocardiographic evidence of myocardial injury has been reported; intravenous lines
and cardiac monitors should be established in obviously symptomatic patients. The lungs
excrete inhaled solvents, so that hyperventilation improves clearance.
路 A chest x-ray should be taken immediately after stabilisation of breathing and
circulation to document aspiration and detect the presence of pneumothorax.
路 Epinephrine (adrenalin) is not recommended for treatment of bronchospasm because of
potential myocardial sensitisation to catecholamines. Inhaled cardioselective
bronchodilators (e.g. Alupent, Salbutamol) are the preferred agents, with aminophylline a
second choice.
路 Lavage is indicated in patients who require decontamination; ensure use of cuffed
endotracheal tube in adult patients. [Ellenhorn and Barceloux: Medical Toxicology].


Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES


EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
路 Foam.
路 Dry chemical powder.

MATERIAL DATA
Sensory irritants are chemicals that produce temporary and undesirable side-effects on
the eyes, nose or throat. Historically occupational exposure standards for these
irritants have been based on observation of workers' responses to various airborne
concentrations. Present day expectations require that nearly every individual should be
protected against even minor sensory irritation and exposure standards are established
using uncertainty factors or safety factors of 5 to 10 or more. On occasion animal no
-observable-effect-levels (NOEL) are used to determine these limits where human results
are unavailable. An additional approach, typically used by the TLV committee (USA) in

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

determining respiratory standards for this group of chemicals, has been to assign ceiling
values (TLV C) to rapidly acting irritants and to assign short-term exposure limits (TLV
STELs) when the weight of evidence from irritation, bioaccumulation and other endpoints
combine to warrant such a limit. In contrast the MAK Commission (Germany) uses a five
-category system based on intensive odour, local irritation, and elimination half-life.
However this system is being replaced to be consistent with the European Union (EU)
Scientific Committee for Occupational Exposure Limits (SCOEL); this is more closely
allied to that of the USA.
OSHA (USA) concluded that exposure to sensory irritants can:
路 cause inflammation
路 cause increased susceptibility to other irritants and infectious agents
路 lead to permanent injury or dysfunction
路 permit greater absorption of hazardous substances and
路 acclimate the worker to the irritant warning properties of these substances thus
increasing the risk of overexposure.

INGREDIENT DATA
DISTILLATES, PETROLEUM, LIGHT, ACID-TREATED:
DISTILLATES, PETROLEUM, MIDDLE, HYDROTREATED:
Human exposure to oil mist alone has not been demonstrated to cause health effects
except at levels above 5 mg/m3 (this applies to particulates sampled by a method that
does not collect vapour). It is not advisable to apply this standard to oils containing
unknown concentrations and types of additive.

DISTILLATES, PETROLEUM, LIGHT, ACID-TREATED:
REL TWA: 300 ppm [Manufacturer]
WARNING: This substance is classified by the NOHSC as Category 2 Probable Human
Carcinogen.

ALUMINIUM OXIDE:
The experimental and clinical data indicate that aluminium oxide acts as an
"inert" material when inhaled and seems to have little effect on the lungs
nor does it produce significant organic disease or toxic effects when
exposures are kept under reasonable control.
[Documentation of the Threshold Limit Values], ACGIH, Sixth Edition

KAOLIN:
Kaolin dust appears to have fibrogenic potential even in the absence of
crystalline silica. Kaolinosis can exist as simple and complicated forms
with the latter often associated with respiratory symptoms. Crystalline
silica enhances the severity of the pneumoconiosis.

PERSONAL PROTECTION

EYE
路 Safety glasses with side shields.
路 Chemical goggles.
路 Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and
concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or
restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a
review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account
of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal
and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of chemical exposure,
begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens
should be removed at the first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be
removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly. [CDC
NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59].

ENGINEERING CONTROLS
路 Employees exposed to confirmed human carcinogens should be authorized to do so by the
employer, and work in a regulated area.
路 Work should be undertaken in an isolated system such as a "glove-box" . Employees
should wash their hands and arms upon completion of the assigned task and before engaging
in other activities not associated with the isolated system.
路 Within regulated areas, the carcinogen should be stored in sealed containers, or
enclosed in a closed system, including piping systems, with any sample ports or openings
closed while the carcinogens are contained within.
路 Open-vessel systems are prohibited.
路 Each operation should be provided with continuous local exhaust ventilation so that
air movement is always from ordinary work areas to the operation.
路 Exhaust air should not be discharged to regulated areas, non-regulated areas or the
external environment unless decontaminated. Clean make-up air should be introduced in
sufficient volume to maintain correct operation of the local exhaust system.
路 For maintenance and decontamination activities, authorized employees entering the area
should be provided with and required to wear clean, impervious garments, including gloves
, boots and continuous-air supplied hood. Prior to removing protective garments the
employee should undergo decontamination and be required to shower upon removal of the
garments and hood.

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

路 Except for outdoor systems, regulated areas should be maintained under negative
pressure (with respect to non-regulated areas).
路 Local exhaust ventilation requires make-up air be supplied in equal volumes to
replaced air.
路 Laboratory hoods must be designed and maintained so as to draw air inward at an
average linear face velocity of 150 feet/ min. with a minimum of 125 feet/ min. Design
and construction of the fume hood requires that insertion of any portion of the employees
body, other than hands and arms, be disallowed.

Swallowing of the liquid may cause aspiration into the lungs with the risk of chemical
pneumonitis; serious consequences may result.
(ICSC13733).
Accidental ingestion of the material may be damaging to the health of the individual.
Ingestion of petroleum hydrocarbons may produce irritation of the pharynx, oesophagus,
stomach and small intestine with oedema and mucosal ulceration resulting; symptoms
include a burning sensation in the mouth and throat. Large amounts may produce narcosis
with nausea and vomiting, weakness or dizziness, slow and shallow respiration, swelling
of the abdomen, unconsciousness and convulsions. Myocardial injury may produce
arrhythmias, ventricular fibrillation and electrocardiographic changes. Central nervous
system depression may also occur. Light aromatic hydrocarbons produce a warm, sharp,
tingling sensation on contact with taste buds and may anaesthetise the tongue. Aspiration

into the lungs may produce coughing, gagging and a chemical pneumonitis with pulmonary
oedema and haemorrhage.
Central nervous system (CNS) depression may include nonspecific discomfort, symptoms of
giddiness, headache, dizziness, nausea, anaesthetic effects, slowed reaction time,
slurred speech and may progress to unconsciousness. Serious poisonings may result in
respiratory depression and may be fatal.

EYE
Limited evidence exists, or practical experience suggests, that the material may cause
eye irritation in a substantial number of individuals and/or is expected to produce
significant ocular lesions which are present twenty-four hours or more after instillation
into the eye(s) of experimental animals. Repeated or prolonged eye contact may cause
inflammation characterised by temporary redness (similar to windburn) of the conjunctiva
(conjunctivitis); temporary impairment of vision and/or other transient eye
damage/ulceration may occur.

SKIN
The liquid may be miscible with fats or oils and may degrease the skin, producing a skin
reaction described as non-allergic contact dermatitis. The material is unlikely to
produce an irritant dermatitis as described in EC Directives .
Repeated exposure may cause skin cracking, flaking or drying following normal handling
and use.
The material may accentuate any pre-existing dermatitis condition.
Entry into the blood-stream, through, for example, cuts, abrasions or lesions, may
produce systemic injury with harmful effects. Examine the skin prior to the use of the
material and ensure that any external damage is suitably protected.

INHALED
Inhalation of vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness. This may be accompanied by
narcosis, reduced alertness, loss of reflexes, lack of coordination and vertigo.
Inhalation of vapours or aerosols (mists, fumes), generated by the material during the
course of normal handling, may be damaging to the health of the individual.
Limited evidence or practical experience suggests that the material may produce
irritation of the respiratory system, in a significant number of individuals, following
inhalation. In contrast to most organs, the lung is able to respond to a chemical insult
by first removing or neutralising the irritant and then repairing the damage. The repair
process, which initially evolved to protect mammalian lungs from foreign matter and
antigens, may however, produce further lung damage resulting in the impairment of gas
exchange, the primary function of the lungs. Respiratory tract irritation often results
in an inflammatory response involving the recruitment and activation of many cell types,
mainly derived from the vascular system.
Acute effects from inhalation of high concentrations of vapour are pulmonary irritation,
including coughing, with nausea; central nervous system depression - characterised by
headache and dizziness, increased reaction time, fatigue and loss of co-ordination.
Central nervous system (CNS) depression may include nonspecific discomfort, symptoms of
giddiness, headache, dizziness, nausea, anaesthetic effects, slowed reaction time,
slurred speech and may progress to unconsciousness. Serious poisonings may result in
respiratory depression and may be fatal.

CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS
On the basis, primarily, of animal experiments, the material may be regarded as
carcinogenic to humans. There is sufficient evidence to provide a strong presumption that
human exposure to the material may result in cancer on the basis of:
- appropriate long-term animal studies
- other relevant information.
Limited evidence suggests that repeated or long-term occupational exposure may produce
cumulative health effects involving organs or biochemical systems.
Repeated or prolonged exposure to mixed hydrocarbons may produce narcosis with dizziness,
weakness, irritability, concentration and/or memory loss, tremor in the fingers and

tongue, vertigo, olfactory disorders, constriction of visual field, paraesthesias of the
extremities, weight loss and anaemia and degenerative changes in the liver and kidney.
Chronic exposure by petroleum workers, to the lighter hydrocarbons, has been associated
with visual disturbances, damage to the central nervous system, peripheral neuropathies
(including numbness and paraesthesias), psychological and neurophysiological deficits,
bone marrow toxicities (including hypoplasia possibly due to benzene) and hepatic and
renal involvement. Chronic dermal exposure to petroleum hydrocarbons may result in
defatting which produces localised dermatoses. Surface cracking and erosion may also
increase susceptibility to infection by microorganisms. One epidemiological study of
petroleum refinery workers has reported elevations in standard mortality ratios for skin
cancer along with a dose-response relationship indicating an association between routine
workplace exposure to petroleum or one of its constituents and skin cancer, particularly
melanoma. Other studies have been unable to confirm this finding.
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause drying with cracking, irritation and
possible dermatitis following.

Section 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

The lower molecular weight hydrocarbons are expected to form a "slick" on the surface of
waters after release in calm sea conditions. This is expected to evaporate and enter the
atmosphere where it will be degraded through reaction with hydroxy radicals.

Some of the material will become associated with benthic sediments, and it is likely to
be spread over a fairly wide area of sea floor. Marine sediments may be either aerobic or
anaerobic. The material, in probability, is biodegradable, under aerobic conditions
(isomerised olefins and alkenes show variable results). Evidence also suggests that the

Section 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

hydrocarbons may be degradable under anaerobic conditions although such degradation in
benthic sediments may be a relatively slow process.

Under aerobic conditions the material will degrade to water and carbon dioxide, while
under anaerobic processes it will produce water, methane and carbon dioxide.

Based on test results, as well as theoretical considerations, the potential for
bioaccumulation may be high. Toxic effects are often observed in species such as blue
mussel, daphnia, freshwater green algae, marine copepods and amphipods.
Drinking Water Standards:
hydrocarbon total: 10 ug/l (UK max.).
DO NOT discharge into sewer or waterways.


Section 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

路 Containers may still present a chemical hazard/ danger when empty.
路 Return to supplier for reuse/ recycling if possible.
Otherwise:
路 If container can not be cleaned sufficiently well to ensure that residuals do not
remain or if the container cannot be used to store the same product, then puncture
containers, to prevent re-use, and bury at an authorised landfill.
路 Where possible retain label warnings and MSDS and observe all notices pertaining to the
product.
Legislation addressing waste disposal requirements may differ by country, state and/ or
territory. Each user must refer to laws operating in their area. In some areas, certain
wastes must be tracked.
A Hierarchy of Controls seems to be common - the user should investigate:
路 Reduction,
路 Reuse
路 Recycling
路 Disposal (if all else fails)
This material may be recycled if unused, or if it has not been contaminated so as to make
it unsuitable for its intended use. If it has been contaminated, it may be possible to
reclaim the product by filtration, distillation or some other means. Shelf life
considerations should also be applied in making decisions of this type. Note that
properties of a material may change in use, and recycling or reuse may not always be
appropriate.
DO NOT allow wash water from cleaning or process equipment to enter drains.
It may be necessary to collect all wash water for treatment before disposal.
In all cases disposal to sewer may be subject to local laws and regulations and these
should be considered first. Where in doubt contact the responsible authority.
路 Recycle wherever possible or consult manufacturer for recycling options.
路 Consult State Land Waste Authority for disposal.
路 Bury or incinerate residue at an approved site.
路 Recycle containers if possible, or dispose of in an authorised landfill.
