SECTION 3 - COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
4 - FIRST AID
Eyes - If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. Flush eyes gently with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids-apart; seek immediate medical attention.
Skin - Remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse.
Ingestion - Seek medical attention. If individual is drowsy or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth; Place individual on the left side with the head down. Contact a physician, medical facility, poison control center for advice about whether to induce vomiting. If possible, do not leave individual unattended.
Inhalation - If symptoms develop, move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. If symptoms Persist, seek medical attention. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Keep person warm and quiet; seek immediate medical attention.
Notes to physician :
Hazards: Administration of high doses of isopropanol in combination with known hepatotoxic Chemicals resulted in enhanced liver toxicity in experimental animals. This material is an aspiration hazard. Potential danger from aspiration must be weighed against possible oral toxicity (See Section 2 - Swallowing) when deciding whether to induce vomiting.
Treatment: No information available.
SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing media - Dry chemical, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Water spray
Hazardous combustion products - carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide
Precautions for fire-fighting
Material is volatile and readily gives off vapors which may travel along the ground or be moved by ventilation and ignited by pilot lights, flames, sparks, heaters, smoking, electric motors, static discharge or other ignition sources at locations near the material handling point. Never use welding or cutting torch on or near drum (even empty) because product (even just residue) can ignite explosively. Wear full firefighting turn-out gear (full Bunker gear) and respiratory protection (SCBA). Water may be ineffective for extinguishment unless used under favorable conditions by experienced fire fighters. Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers and structures until fire is out if it can be done with minimal risk. Avoid spreading burning material with water used for cooling purposes.
NFPA Flammable and Combustible Liquids Classification - Flammable Liquid Class IB
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL
Personal precautions - For personal protection see section 8. Persons not wearing protective equipment should be excluded from area of spill until clean-up has been completed. Ensure adequate ventilation. Eliminate all ignition sources (flares, flames including pilot lights, electrical sparks). Pay attention to the spreading of gases especially at ground level (heavier than air) and to the direction of the wind.
Environmental precautions - Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g.by containment or oil barriers). Do not let product enter drains. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Local authorities should be advised significant spillages cannot be contained.
Methods for cleaning up :
Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, ( e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section l3).
Other information - Comply with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations. Suppress (knock down) gases/vapors/mists with water spray jet.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING
Handling - Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed. Static ignition hazard can result from handling and use. Electrically bond and ground all containers, personnel and equipment before transfer or use of material. Special precautions may be necessary to dissipate static electricity for non-conductive containers. Use proper bonding and grounding during product transfer as described in National Fire Protection Association document NFPA 77. Warning. Sudden release of hot organic chemical vapors or mists from process equipment operating at elevated temperature and pressure, or sudden ingress of air into vacuum equipment, may result in ignitions without the presence of obvious ignition sources. Published "auto ignition” or "ignition" temperature values cannot be treated as safe operating temperatures in chemical processes without analysis of the actua process conditions. Any use of this product in elevated temperature processes should be thoroughly evaluated to establish and maintain safe operating conditions.
Storage - Store in a cool, dry, ventilated area, away from incompatible substances. Small quantities of peroxides may form on prolonged storage. Exposure to light and/or air significantly increases the rate of peroxide formation. If evaporated to a residue, the mixture of peroxides and isopropanol may explode when exposed to heat or shock.
