SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
 

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 RELEASE MEASURES
 

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 AND STORAGE
 

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.

GENERAL ADVICE -
These recommendations provide general guidance for handling this product. Personal protective equipment should be selected for individual applications and should consider factors which affect exposure potential, such as handling practices, chemical concentrations and ventilation. It is ultimately the responsibility of the employer to follow regulatory guidelines established by local authorities.

Exposure controls - Provide sufficient mechanical (general and/or local exhaust) ventilation to maintain exposure below exposure guidelines (if applicable) or below levels that cause known, suspected or apparent adverse effects.

Eye protection - Wear chemical splash goggles when there is the potential for exposure of the eyes to liquid, vapor or mist.

Skin and body protection -  Wear normal work clothing including long pants, long-sleeved shirts and foot covering to prevent direct contact of the product with the skin. Launder clothing before reuse. If skin irritation develops, contact your facility health and safety professional or your local safety equipment supplier to determine the proper personal protective equipment for your use.

Wear resistant gloves such as: Nitrile rubber

Respiratory protection - A NIOSH-approved air purifying respirator with an appropriate cartridge and/or filter may be permissible under certain circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure limits (if applicable) or if overexposure has otherwise been determined. Protection provided by air-purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive pressure, air-supplied respirator if there is any potential for uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known or any other circumstances where an air-purifying respirator may not provide adequate protection.
