Section 2. Hazards identification
Emergency Overview
WARNING!
FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR. MAY CAUSE TARGET ORGAN DAMAGE, BASED ON ANIMAL DATA.
Flammable liquid. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Avoid contact with skin and
clothing. May cause target organ damage, based on animal data. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep container
tightly closed and sealed until ready for use.
Potential Acute Health
Effects
See section 11 for more detailed information on health effects and symptoms.
Extremely hazardous by the following route of exposure: of ingestion. Hazardous by the following route of exposure: of
inhalation. Slightly hazardous by the following route of exposure: of skin contact (irritant, permeator), of eye contact
(irritant). Non-sensitizer to skin.
Severe over-exposure can result in death.
Note to Physician
Acute exposure to methanol, either through ingestion or breathing high airborne concentrations can result in symptoms
appearing between 40 minutes and 72 hours after exposure. Symptoms and signs are usually limited to CNS, eyes and
gastrointestinal tract. Because of the initial CNS’s effects of headache, vertigo, lethargy and confusion, there may be an
impression of ethanol intoxication. Blurred vision, decreased acuity and photophobia are common complaints.
Treatment with ipecac or lavage is indicated in any patient presenting within two hours of ingestion. A profound
metabolic acidosis occurs in severe poisoning and serum bicarbonate levels are a more accurate measure of severity
than serum methanol levels. Treatment protocols are available from most major hospitals and early collaboration with
appropriate hospitals is recommended.

There are no other ingredients present which, within the current knowledge of the supplier and in the
concentrations applicable, are classified as hazardous to health or the environment and hence require
reporting in this section.
Section 4. First aid measures
Eye contact
Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 30 minutes,
occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin contact
In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 30 minutes while removing contaminated
clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Get medical attention
immediately.
Inhalation
Move exposed person to fresh air. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial
respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical
attention immediately.
Ingestion
Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything
by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention immediately.
Notes to physician
No specific treatment. Treat symptomatically. Contact poison treatment specialist
immediately if large quantities have been ingested or inhaled.
Section 5. Fire-fighting measures
Products of combustion
Decomposition products may include the following materials:
carbon dioxide
carbon monoxide
Fire-fighting media and
instructions
Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray (fog) or foam.
Fire Hazards
Explosive in the form of vapor when exposed to heat or flame. Vapor may travel a considerable distance to source of
ignition and flash back. Emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes when heated to decomposition.
Explosion Hazards
Highly flammable liquid and vapor.

Section 6. Accidental release measures
Small spill and leak
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop up if water-soluble. Alternatively, or
if water-insoluble, absorb with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Use sparkproof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Large spill and leak
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach release from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers,
water courses, basements or confined areas. Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous
earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations (see section 13). Use spark-proof tools and
explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material
may pose the same hazard as the spilled product. Note: see section 1 for emergency contact information and section
13 for waste disposal.
Section 7. Handling and Storage
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8). Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in
areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating,
drinking and smoking. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Use
only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Do not enter storage areas
and confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a
compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Store and use away from heat, sparks, open flame or any other
ignition source. Use explosion-proof electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Use non-sparking
tools. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static
electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before transferring material. Empty
containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.
Handling
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved area. Store in original container
protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10)
and food and drink. Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep container tightly closed and
sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent
leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.
Storage
Section 8. Exposure controls/personal protection
Engineering controls
Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or
other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any
recommended or statutory limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas, vapor
or dust concentrations below any lower explosive limits. Use explosion-proof ventilation
equipment.
Personal protection
Eyes Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists or
dusts. Recommended: splash goggles
Possible: face shield
Body Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being
performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling
this product.
Possible: Wear protective clothing: safety apron coveralls boots.

Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved
standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be
based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe
working limits of the selected respirator. Recommended: Respirator selection must be
based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe
working limits of the selected respirator.
Hands Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be
worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this i
necessary. >8 hours (breakthrough time): nitrile rubber
