FLASHPOINT:  NONE

METHOD USED:  TOC, TCC, COC


FLAMMABLE LIMITS:  LOWER: 14% @ 25C  UPPER:  22% @ 25C

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:  Regular foam or water fog, or carbon dioxide, or dry chemical

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:  May form toxic materials:,  carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, phosgene, nitrogen compounds, various hydrocarbons.

FIREFIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS:  Forms flammable vapor-air mixtures.  Lower temperatures increases the difficulty of getting it to ignite.

PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR FIREFIGHTERS:  Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and full protective equipment.

SECTON 5 HEALTH HAZARD DATA

EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE:

EYES - Can cause severe irritation, redness, tearing, blurred vision.

SKIN - Prolonged or repeated contact can cause skin irritation, even a burn.

BREATHING - In confined or poorly ventilated areas, vapors can readily accumulate and can cause unconsciousness and death.  Minimal anesthetic or narcotic effects may be seen in the range of 500-1000 ppm methylene chloride. Progressively higher levels over 100 ppm can cause dizziness, drunkenness; concentrations as low as 10,000 ppm can cause unconsciousness and death.  The high levels may also cause cardiac arrythnias (irregular heartbeats).

SWALLOWING - Can cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, blindness, and death.  Aspiration of material into lungs can cause chemical pneumonitis, which can be fatal.

FIRST AID:

IF ON SKIN - Thoroughly wash exposed area with soap and water.  Remove contaminated clothing.  Launder clothing before re-use.

IF IN EYES - Flush with large amounts of water, lifting upper and lower lids occasionally; SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION


IF SWALLOWED - Call physician, emergency room or poison control center IMMEDIATELY for instructions to induce vomiting.  IF INHALED - If affected, remove to fresh air.  If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen.  If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration.  Keep person warm and quiet,  and SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.  Do not give stimulants. Epinephrine or ephedrine may adversely affect the heart with fatal results.

SECTION 6 REACTIVITY DATA

HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION:  Cannot occur

STABILITY:  Stable

INCOMPATIBILITY:  Avoid contact with strong oxidizing agents, strong alkalies, and strong mineral acids.

SECTION 7 SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED:

SMALL SPILL -  Absorb liquid on paper, vermiculite, floor absorbent, or other absorbent material and transfer to hood.

LARGE SPILL -  Eliminate all ignition sources (flares, flames, pilot lights, electrical sparks, etc.).  Persons not wearing protective equipment should be excluded from area of spill until clean-up has been completed.  Stop spill source, dike area of spill to prevent spreading.  Pump liquid to salvage tank.  Remaining liquid may be taken up on sand, clay, earth, floor absorbent, or other absorbent material and shoveled into containers.

WATER DISPOSAL METHOD:

SMALL SPILL - Allow volatile portion to evaporate in hood.  Allow sufficient time for vapors to completely clear hood duct work.  Destroy remaining material by burning in an iron pan.

LARGE SPILL - Destroy by liquid incineration with off-gas scrubber.  Material collected on absorbent material may be deposited in a posted toxic substance landfill in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.

SECTION 8 PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT TO BE USED

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION:  If TLV of any component of the product is exceeded, a NIOSH/MESA jointly approved self-contained breathing apparatus with a full face piece

 

operated in pressure demand or other positive pressure mode is        advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other NIOSH/MESA respirators under specific conditions. (See your safety equipment supplier.)

VENTILATION:  Provide sufficient mechanical (general) and/or local exhaust ventilation to maintain exposure below TLVs of components.

PROTECTIVE GLOVES:  Wear resistant gloves such as:  polyvinyl alcohol, natural rubber, etc.

EYE PROTECTION:  Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other type safety glasses.  (See Your safety equipment supplier.)

SECTION 9 SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS OR OTHER COMMENTS

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 this data sheet must be observed.

Overexposure to components has apparently been found to cause the following effects in laboratory animals: liver abnormalities, lung damage, kidney damage, spleen damage, eye damage, brain damage, and central nervous system damage.

WARNING!!!!:

This product contains a chemical which is known to the State of California to cause cancer in some laboratory animals.  Risk to your health depends on level and duration of exposure.  Use with adequate ventilation.  Avoid contact with skin.
