 Means of Extinction  Apply alcohol-type or all-purpose-type foams by manufacturer's recommended for large fires. Use carbon dioxide or dry chemical media for small fires. Water is generally unsuitable and may help to spread the fire.
 Special fire fighting procedures  Pressure demand self-contained breathing apparatus should be provided to fire fighters in buildings or confined areas where this material is stored. Structures and storage containers exposed to fire should be kept cool with water spray. Use water spray to disperse vapors.
 Unusual fire and explosion hazards  Vapors form from this product and may travel or be moved by air currents and ignited by pilot lights, other flames, sparks, heaters, electrical equipment, static discharges or ignition sources at locations distant from handling point.
 Section V. Reactivity data
 Conditions to avoid  Heat, Sparks and open flames
 Incompatibility  Avoid contact with strong oxidizers, aluminum acetaldehyde, chlorine, ethylene oxide, hydrogen-palladium combination, H2 O2-H2 SO4 combination, hypochlorous acid, isocyanates, nitroform, phosgene, oleum, perchloric acid, potassium t-butoxide, acids, alkalis, amines, halogens, halogen compounds, anhydrides and aldehydes.
 Hazardous products of decomposition  This material may decompose at high temperatures to form CO, CO2.
 Dangerous polymerization  No Data
 Section VI. Toxicological properties 
 Routes of entry
 Eye Contact   Vapor will irritate the eyes. Liquid and mists can severely irritate or damage the eyes and cause corneal burns 
 Skin Contact  Brief contact may dry the skin, or cause burning or stinging sensation. Prolonged or repeated contact may irritate the skin causing dermatitis 
 Inhalation   Vapors and mists irritate the nose and throat. Inhalation of higher concentrations may cause headaches, vomiting and coma. Inhalation of very high concentrations or prolonged exposure may cause unconsciousness, or death.
 Ingestion   Swallowing large quantities causes headaches, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea, and perhaps unconsciousness or death. 
 Exposure limit of material   Oral - DL50(rat) = 5840 mg/kg
 Human lethal dose = 250 ml
 Skin - DL50(rabbit) = 13 g/kg
 Inhalation - CL50(rat) = 16000 ppm/8 hours. No Data
 Effects of chronic overexposure   Prolonged or repeated exposure to high concentrations produce severe or fatal CNS depression
 Medical conditions generally aggravated by exposure  Persons with pre-existing skin disorders, eye problems, or impaired respiratory function may be more susceptible to the effects of this substance.
 Section VII. First aid measures
 Eye contact   Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes holding lids apart to ensure flushing of the entire surface. Washing eyes within 1 minute is essential to achieve maximum effectiveness. Seek medical attention.
 Skin contact   Wash thoroughly with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and footwear. Wash clothing before re-use. Seek medical attention if irritation should develop.
 Inhalation   Remove to fresh air. Give artificial respiration is not breathing. Get immediate medical attention.
 Ingestion   If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Small amounts of this liquid drawn into the lungs from swallowing or vomiting may cause severe health effects (e.g. BRONCHOPNEUMONIA OR PULMONARY EDEMA). Seek medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Section VIII. Preventive measures 
 Precautionary Measures  Use adequate local exhaust ventilation capable of maintaining emissions at the point of use below the PEL.
 Protective clothing  long-sleeved shirt, trousers, safety shoes, rubber gloves and rubber apron. 
 Eye Protection  Chemical goggles unless a full facepiece respirator is also worn. It is generally recognized that contact lenses should not be worn when working chemicals because contact lenses may contribute to the severity of an eye injury.
 Other protective measures  An eyewash and safety shower should be nearby and ready to use.
 Spill and leak   Wear protective equipment including rubber boots, rubber gloves, rubber apron and a self-contained breathing apparatus in the pressure demand mode or a supplied-air respirator. If the spill or leak is small, a full facepiece air purifying cartridge respirator equipped for organic vapors may be satisfactory. In any event, always wear eye protection. Extinguish all ignition sources and ensure that all handling equipment is electrically grounded. Place in approved waste containers.
 For large Spills: Contain by diking with soil or other non-combustible absorbent materials and then pump into dot-approved waste containers; or absorb with non-combustible sorbent material, place residue in dot-approved waste containers. Keep out of sewers, storm drains, surface waters and soil.
 Waste disposal   Dispose of contaminated product and materials used in cleaning up spills or leaks in a manner approved for this material. Consult appropriate federal, provincial and local regulatory agencies to ascertain proper disposal procedures.
 NOTE: Empty containers can have residues, gases and mists and are subject to proper waste disposal as above.
 Section IX. Special Precautions
 Handling and storage precautions  Keep away from heat, sparks and flames. Store in a cool, dry well ventilated place away from incompatible materials. Vent container frequently, and more often in warm weather, to relieve pressure. Electrically ground all equipment when handling this product and use only non-sparking tools. Keep container tightly closed when not in use. Do not use pressure to empty container.
 Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid breathing mist or spray.
 Wear chemical splash goggles, gloves and protective clothing when handling.
 Use with adequate ventilation and employ respiratory protection where spray or mist may be generated.
 Wash thoroughly after handling
 Repair and maintenance precautions   Do not cut, grind, weld or drill on or near this container.
 Other precautions   Containers, even those that have been emptied, will retain product residue and vapors. Always obey hazard warning and handle empty containers as if they were full.
