TWA = Time-Weighted Average. STEL = Short Term Exposure Limit. C = Ceiling. P = maximum peak above C, limited to one period of no more than 10 min. * Applies to situations where there is no or negligible aerosol exposure. ** ACGIH has served notice of its intention to lower its standards for hydrogen sulphide to 1 ppm TWA and 5 ppm STEL. Jet fuel is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons. Its exact composition depends on the source of the crude oil from which it was produced and the refining methods used. Jet fuel contains hundreds of individual organic chemicals. This section identifies only some of the well-known chemical constituents.

Specific gravity Liquid Vapour density Colourless Vapour pressure Kerosene-like, if no sulphur is present Evaporation rate H2S smells like rotten eggs. Boiling point Note: H2S deadens the sense of smell. Absence of Freezing point egg odour does not mean absence of H2S.

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET

Product Name: Jet Fuel JP8 # 3412

Explosion data: Sensitivity to: Mechanical impact Not expected to be sensitive Static discharge Yes Means of extinction In general, do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical, or foam. Special precautions

Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after the fire is out. Vapour is heavier than air. It may travel along the ground and collect in low-lying areas such as tanks, basements, and sewers. Containers may explode when heated. may be produced from minor amounts of sulphur in the product.

Hazardous combustion products Carbon monoxide. Nitrogen oxides. Aromatic hydrocarbons. H S and sulphur dioxide (SO ) 2 2

SECTION 5 – REACTIVITY INFORMATION
Stability Conditions to avoid Incompatible substances Hazardous decomposition products

Stable Sources of ignition. Static discharges. High temperatures. Oxidizers such as peroxides, nitric acid, and perchlorates. Carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides. Aromatic hydrocarbons. H2S and sulphur dioxide (SO2) may be produced from minor amounts of sulphur in the product.

SECTION 6 – HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION
Route of Entry Acute exposure Inhalation Ingestion Eye Skin absorption Jet fuel itself, as well as some components Hazardous Contact Eye Skin contact

Headache and other symptoms of central nervous system (CNS) depression, such as nausea and dizziness. Aspiration into the lungs can cause severe pneumonitis (serious lung irritation), chest pain, and/or pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs).
Note: H2S may offgas from the product in confined spaces such as the headspace in tanks, even though the concentration of sulphur in the product is minimal. H2S is very toxic. At concentrations as low as 1 to 5 ppm,

nausea and severe eye irritation may occur. Sense of smell may be impaired at about 20 ppm, with headache and respiratory tract lung irritation. At 250 to 500 ppm, potentially fatal pulmonary edema may occur. (May be delayed as long as 48 hours.) Dizziness, sudden (often fatal) collapse, unconsciousness, and death occur at higher concentrations.
Chronic exposure Carcinogenicity

Dermatitis. Possibly blood, liver, and nervous system disorders. Fatigue, and severe nervous and respiratory system symptoms may follow survival of H2S poisoning.
Irritancy Skin Jet fuels are not classified by IARC, NTP, or OSHA. ACGIH classifies Sensitization Not available jet fuel as an “animal carcinogen with unknown relevance for humans”. Teratogenicity DEGME is a Exposure to fuel oils during refining is considered “probably carcinogenic to humans” (IARC Group 2A). Benzene is a recognized carcinogen. suspect hazard Reproductive toxicity Not available Not known to be mutagenic. Other chemicals that cause CNS depression are expected to produce additive or synergistic effects.

Mutagenicity Toxicologically synergistic

SECTION 7 – FIRST AID
Inhalation Move victim to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if breathing has stopped and if a qualified AR administrator is

available. Apply CPR if both pulse and breathing have stopped. Obtain medical attention immediately.
Ingestion

Never give anything by mouth if the person is unconscious, rapidly losing consciousness, or convulsing. If the person is conscious, have them drink 8 to 10 ounces of water or milk to dilute the material in the stomach. Do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, have the person lean forward to avoid aspiration. Obtain medical attention immediately. If irritation occurs, flush eye with lukewarm, gently flowing fresh water for at least 10 minutes. Quickly and gently blot away excess chemical. Gently remove contaminated clothing and shoes under running water. Wash gently and thoroughly with water and non-abrasive soap. Obtain medical assistance.

Eye Skin

SECTION 8 – PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES
Do not attempt rescue of an H2S knockdown victim without the use of proper respiratory protective equipment. Personal Gloves Barrier, Nitrile, Viton™, polyethylene preferred. protective Eye Chemical safety goggle or face shield, as a good general safety practice. equipment

Product Name: Jet Fuel JP8 # 3412

Respiratory NIOSH-approved. SCBA or airline respirator with escape cylinder for confined spaces or work with

sulphur-containing product. If an air-purifying respirator is appropriate, use organic vapour cartridges. A qualified occupational health and safety professional should advise on respirator selection Clothing Coveralls to prevent skin contact with product. If clothing or footwear becomes contaminated with & footwear product, completely decontaminate it before re-use, or discard it.
Engineering controls

Enclose processes. Avoid generating mists. Use local exhaust ventilation to remove vapour at its site of generation. Handle laboratory samples in a fume hood. Use mechanical ventilation in confined spaces.

Keep containers closed. Keep work area free of ignition sources. Use non-sparking equipment, explosion-proof Handling procedures & ventilation, and intrinsically safe electrical equipment. Ground handling equipment. Have clean emergency equipment eyewash and shower readily available in the work area.
Leak & spill Procedure

Keep unauthorized persons away. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Ventilate area. Stop leak if it can be done safely. Prevent entry into sewers, waterways, or confined spaces. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and use clean, non-sparking tools to transfer to container. Cool, dry, well-ventilated area. No ignition sources. Containers should be vented and have flame arresters. Stable during transport.

Waste disposal Consult local authorities for disposal advice. Storage Shipping
