3. Hazards Identification
WHMIS Classification:
HIMS Rating -
A, Compressed Gas
B5, Flammable Aerosol
D2B, Toxic Material
Emergency Overview: Extremely flammable aerosol. Harmful if
swallowed. May cause lung damage if swallowed. Causes skin and
eye irritation. High concentration of vapour may cause nausea,
dizziness, headaches and drowsiness. Contents under pressure.
Primary entry route(s): Inhalation, Ingestion, Eyes and Skin.
Effects of short-term (acute) exposure: (for more details, refer to
Section 11).
Potential Health Effects
Eye: Contact will cause irritation. Liquid may cause temporary
pain if splashed in the eye(s). May cause redness, tearing and
moderate irritation.
Skin: Prolonged or repeated contact will cause skin irritation. If
trapped against the skin for a long period (probably more than 30
minutes), serious irritations, even burns and skin loss may occur.
Inhalation: Vapours may cause respiratory irritation. Breathing
vapours at concentration above recommended exposure limits could
cause headache, dizziness, nausea and drowsiness. Vapours may
cause central nervous system (CNS) depression. Other CNS effects
such as headache, lack of appetite, drowsiness, and in-coordination
can occur. Very high concentrations may cause unconsciousness
and pulmonary edema.
Ingestion: If swallowed, this material may irritate the respiratory
tract. Due to its low viscosity, there is danger of aspiration into the
lungs during swallowing and subsequent vomiting. Aspiration can
result in severe lung damage. Product is moderately toxic if
ingested. It may cause burning in the mouth, throat and chest as well
as stomach irritation, nausea, and vomiting. Central nervous
symptom depression, such as unconsciousness and coma, can occur.
Inhalation of product into the lungs (aspiration) can occur while
product is in the mouth, being swallowed or during vomiting. The
aspiration of even a small amount of product into the lungs is very
hazardous and may cause death. Aspirated product can cause
chemical pneumonitis and/or pulmonary edema.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long-term Exposure:
Repeated or prolonged contact can dry the skin and cause
cracking, irritation and dermatitis.
4. First Aid Measures
Eye Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with
plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids open.
Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected
area immediately with large amounts of soap and water. Get
medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
Inhalation: Remove source of contamination or move the exposed
person to fresh air. If not breathing, trained personnel should give
artificial respiration. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Do Not induce vomiting. Contact a physician. Never
give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If swallowed,
immediately give 2 glasses of water.
5. Fire Fighting Measures
COC Flash Point: 20C
6 oC (42.6 oF) ( lowest component )
Autoignition Temperature: Not Available
Flammable Limits in Air: LEL (% by volume): Not Available
UEL (% by volume): Not Available
Extinguishing Media: Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam or
water fog. Water may be ineffective since it may not cool the
material below its flash point
Fire & Explosion Hazards: Material probably not sensitive to
mechanical impact. Vapour can be readily ignited by static charge.
Fire Fighting Instructions: Flammable liquid and vapour. This
material releases vapours at or below ambient temperatures. When
mixed with air in certain proportions and exposed to an ignition
source, its vapour can cause a flash fire. Vapours are heavier than
air and may travel long distances along the ground to an ignition
source and flash back. Liquid can float on water and may travel to
distant locations and/or spread fire. If container is not cooled, it can
rupture in the heat of the fire. As in any fire, wear self-contained
breathing apparatus pressure-demand MSHA/NIOSH (approved or
equivalent) and full protective gear. Avoid breathing smoke, fumes
and decomposition products.
Hazardous Combustion Products: In the case of a fire, oxides of
carbon, oxides of nitrogen, hydrocarbons, trace elements, fumes and
smoke may be produced.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Safeguards (Personnel): Wear appropriate personal protective
equipment. Eliminate all sources of ignition in the vicinity of the
Spill. All equipment used when handling this material must be
grounded. See Section 8.
Large Spills Procedure: Contain spilled material. Large spillage
should be dammed-off. Prevent spilled product from entering
stream or drinking water supply. Pick up free liquid if it can be
safely done with explosion-proof equipment. Take up the remainder
with absorbent material. Treat or dispose of waste material in
accordance with all local, state/provincial and federal regulations.
Small Spills Procedure: Absorb spills with inert material. Avoid
disposal into wastewater treatment facilities. Treat or dispose of
waste material in accordance with all local, state/provincial and
federal regulations.
7. Handling and Storage
Handling (Personnel): Do not get into eyes, on skin or clothing.
Use only with adequate ventilation and personal protection. When
sampling containers use appropriate personal protective equipment.
When handling material use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof
Storage Requirements: Always keep containers tightly closed and
do not handle or store near heat, sparks or any potential ignition
sources. Store away from incompatible materials such as strong
oxidizers. Protect containers from physical damage.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Engineering Controls/Ventilation: Good general ventilation
should be sufficient to control airborne levels. An emergency eye
wash station and safety shower should be located near the
Eye/Face Protection Requirements: Wear splash-proof safety
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves to minimize skin
contamination. For brief contact, normal work attire should be
sufficient. When prolonged or repeated contact could occur, use
protective clothing impervious to this material.
Respiratory Protection Requirements: Under normal use
conditions while handling small quantities, with adequate
ventilation, no special handling equipment is required.
