SECTION III - FIRST AID PROCEDURES

EYE CONTACT

If splashed into the eyes, flush with clear water for 15 minutes or until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.


SKIN

In case of skin contact, remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.


INHALATION

If overcome by vapor, remove from exposure and call a physician immediately. If breathing is irregular or has stopped, start resuscitation, administer oxygen and seek medical attention.


INGESTION

If ingested, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING, Seek medical attention



SECTION IV - FIRE AND EXPLOSION INFORMATION

FLASH POINT (MINIMUM): 27 Degrees C, (81 degrees F)


AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: 530 Degrees C (986 Degrees F)


NFPA - Hazard Identification: Health - 2 Flammability - 3 Reactivity - 0


HANDLING PRECAUTIONS: This liquid is volatile and gives off invisible vapors. Either the liquid or vapor may settle in low areas or travel some distance along the ground or surface to ignition sources where they may ignite or explode. Keep product away from ignition sources, such as heat, sparks, pilot lights, static electricity and open flames.


EXTINGUISHING MEDIA AND FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Foam, water spray (fog), dry chemical, carbon dioxide and vaporizing liquid type extinguishing agents may all be suitable for extinguishing fires involving this type of product, depending on size or potential size of fire and circumstances related to the situation. Plan fire protection and response strategy through consultation with local fire protection authorities or appropriate specialists.


SECTION V - HEALTH AND HAZARD INFORMATION:

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:

Skin: Slightly to Moderately irritating

Eye: Slightly to Moderately irritating

Inhalation: Slightly Toxic: May cause central nervous system depression or effects. Symptoms may include headache, excitation, euphoria, dizziness, incoordination, drowsiness, light-headedness, blurred vision, fatigue, tremors, convulsions, loss of consciousness, coma, respiratory arrest and death. May cause cardiac sensitization, including arrhythmia.

Ingestion: May cause irritation of the mouth, throat, and gastrointestional tract. Aspiration into lungs may cause chemical pneumonia and lung damage. Exposure may also cause central nervous system symptoms similar to those listed under Inhalation.

VARIABILITY AMONG INDIVIDUALS: Health studies have shown that many petroleum hydrocarbons and synthetic lubricants pose potential human health risks which may vary from person to person. As a precaution, exposure to liquids, vapors, mists, or fumes should be minimized.

EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE (Signs and symptoms of exposure): High vapor concentrations (greater than approximately 1000 ppm), are irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract, and may cause headaches, dizziness, anesthesia, drowsiness, unconsciousness, and other central nervous system effects, including death.

NATURE OF HAZARD AND TOXICITY INFORMATION: WARNING!!! Concentrated, prolonged or deliberate inhalation of this product may cause nervous system damage.

Prolonged or repeated skin contact with this product tends to remove skin oils, possibility leading to irritation and dermatitis: However, based on human experiences and available toxicological data, this product is judged to be neither a Corrosive nor an Irritant by OSHA criteria.

Product has a low order of acute oral and dermal toxicity, but minute amounts aspirated into the lungs during ingestion or vomiting may cause mild to severe pulmonary injury and possibly death.

PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS MAY BE AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Petroleum Solvents, Hydrocarbons-Skin contact may aggravate an existing dermatitis.


SECTION VI- ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION:

STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS SPILLED OR LEAKED

Shut off and eliminate all ignitions sources. Keep people away. Recover free product. Add sand, earth or other suitable absorbent to spill area. Minimize breathing vapors. Minimize skin contact. Ventilate confined spaces. Open all windows and doors. Keep product out of severs and watercourses by dikeing or impounding. Advise authorities if product has entered or may enter sewers, watercourses or land areas.

Toxic Chemical Release Reporting, EPA regulation 40 CFR 355, (SARA 301-304)



SECTION VII - STORAGE, PROTECTION AND PRECAUTIONS:


VENTILATION: Use only with ventilation sufficient to prevent exceeding recommended exposure limits or buildup of explosive concentrations of vapor in air. No smoking, flame or other ignition sources.


RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Use supplied air respiratory protection in confined or enclosed spaces.


PROTECTIVE GLOVES: Chemical resistant gloves to avoid prolonged skin contact.


EYE PROTECTION: Use splash goggles or face shield when eye contact may occur.


OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Use chemical resistant apron or other impervious clothing to avoid contaminating regular clothing, which could result in prolonged or repeated skin contact.


WORK PRACTICES / ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not store near heat, sparks, flame or other ignition source. to prevent fire or explosion risk from static accumulation and discharge, effectively ground transfer system in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association standard for petroleum products.


STABILITY AND REACTIVITY: Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
