2. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS:
Propylene Glycol – C.A.S. # 000057-55-6
Chemical Formula: C3H8O2
Synonyms: 1,2-propanediol; 1,2-dihdroxypropane; methyl glycol
Formula CAS No.: 57-55-6
Molecular Weight: 76.09
3. HAZARDOUS IDENTIFICATION:
Colorless liquid. Odorless. Toxic fumes are released in fire situations.
Potential health effects - see Section 11 for toxicological data.
Eye: may cause slight transient (temporary) eye irritation. Corneal injury is
unlikely. Mists may cause eye irritation.
Skin: Prolonged contact is essentially nonirritating to skin. A single prolonged
exposure is not likely to result in material being absorbed through skin in
harmful amounts. Repeated exposures may cause flaking and softening of skin.
May be absorbed in potentially harmful amounts when applied in large quantities
to severe burns (second or third degree) over large areas of the body as part of
cream or other topical application. Absorption under such circumstances can
elevate serum osmolality and may result in osmotic shock.
Inhalation: At room temperature, vapors are minimal due to physical properties
Mists may cause irritation of upper respiratory tract.
Systemic: (other target organ) Effects: Repeated excessive ingestion may cause
central nervous system effects.
Cancer Information:
Did not cause cancer in long-term animal studies.
Teratology (Birth Defects): Birth defects are unlikely. Exposures having no
adverse effects on the mother, should have no effect on the fetus.
Reproductive Effects: In animal studies, it has been shown not to interfere with
Reproduction.
4. FIRST AID:
Eye: Flush eyes with plenty of water
Skin: Wash off in flowing water or shower
Ingestion: No adverse effects anticipated by this route of exposure incidental to
proper industrial handling.
Note To Physician:
No specific antidote. Supportive care. Treatment based
on judgment of the physician in response to reactions of the patient.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES:
Flammable Properties
Flash Point: 218˚F, 102˚C
Method Used: PMCC
Auto-ignition Temperature: not determined
Flammability Limits
LFL: 2.6%
UFL: 12.5%
Hazardous Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the
original material in addition to unidentified toxic and/or irritating compounds.
Hazardous combustion products may include and are not limited to: aldehydes,
carbon monoxide.
Other Flammability Information: Violent steam generation or eruption may occur
upon application of direct water stream to hot liquids. Spills of these organic
liquids on hot fibrous insulations may lead to lowering of the auto-ignition
temperatures possibly resulting in spontaneous combustion.
Extinguishing Media: Water fog or fine spray. Carbon dioxide. Dry chemical.
Foam. Alcohol resistant foams (ATC type) are preferred if available. Generalpurpose synthetic foams (including AFFF) or protein foams may function, but much
less effectively. Do not use direct water stream. Will spread fire.
Media To Be Avoided: Do not use direct water stream.
Fire Fighting Instructions: Keep people away. Isolate fire area and deny
unnecessary entry. Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to
protect personnel and minimize property damage. Burning liquids may be
extinguished by dilution with water. Do not use direct water stream. May spread
fire.
Protective Equipment For Fire Fighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (Includes fire
fighting helmet, coat, pants, boots and gloves). If protective equipment is not
available or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES:
(See Section 15 for Regulatory Information)
Protect People: Isolate Area.
Protect The Environment: Contain liquid to prevent contamination of soil, surface
water or ground water.
Cleanup: For small spills, clean up with absorbent material. Collect material in
suitable and properly labeled open containers. For large spills, dike and pump into
suitable and properly labeled containers.
7. Handling & Storage
Handling: Product handled hot may require additional ventilation or local exhaust.
Storage: Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Store in stainless steel,
aluminum, plasite 3066 lined containers or 316 stainless steel.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Engineering Controls: Provide general and/or local exhaust ventilation to control
airborne levels below the exposure guidelines.
Personal Protective Equipment:
Eye/Face Protection: Use safety glasses. Safety glasses should be sufficient for
most operations; however, for misty operations wear chemical goggles.
Skin Protection: Use gloves impervious to this material.
Respiratory Protection: Atmospheric levels should be maintained below the
exposure guideline. When respiratory protection is required for certain operations,
use an approved air-purifying respirator. In misty atmospheres, use an approved
mist respirator.
Exposure Guideline (s): Propylene glycol: AIHA WEEL is 50 ppm total, 10 mg/m3
aerosol only.
