Section 3. Hazards Identification
Physical State and Appearance Emergency Overview

Liquid. (Oily liquid.) WARNING! HIGHLY FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR, VAPOR MAY CAUSE FLASH FIRE. HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. POSSIBLE CANCER HAZARD. MAY CAUSE CANCER BASED ON ANIMAL DATA. MAY CAUSE EYE IRRITATION. MAY CAUSE SKIN IRRITATION. MAY CAUSE RESPIRATORY TRACT IRRITATION Risk of cancer depends on duration and level of exposure. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Avoid contact with eyes Do not ingest. Avoid breathing vapors or spray mists. Avoid contact with skin and clothing. Keep container closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Absorbed through skin. Dermal contact. Eye contact. Inhalation. Ingestion.

Routes of Entry Potential Acute Health Effects

Eyes Hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant). Skin Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant, permeator). Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (sensitizer). Skin inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling, reddening, or, occasionally, blistering. Inhalation Hazardous in case of inhalation (lung irritant). Ingestion May be fatal if swallowed.
Potential Chronic Health Effects

Medical Conditions Repeated exposure to an highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an Aggravated by Overexposure accumulation in one or many human organs. Overexposure Not available. /Signs/Symptoms See Toxicological Information (section 11)

Section 4. First Aid Measures
Eye Contact

Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used. Do not use an eye ointment. Seek medical attention. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention. Not available.

Handling

Page: 3/6

To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before transferring material. Use explosion-proof electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Highly toxic or infectious materials should be stored in a separate locked safety storage cabinet or room.

Storage

Section 8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Engineering Controls

Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of vapors below their respective threshold limit value. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are proximal to the work-station location.
Eyes Splash goggles. Body Lab coat.

Personal Protection

Respiratory Vapor respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Hands Gloves. Feet Not applicable.
Protective Clothing (Pictograms)

Personal Protection in Case of Splash goggles. Full suit. Vapor respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus should be used to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be a Large Spill sufficient; consult a specialist BEFORE handling this product. Product Name
