4. First Aid Measures

Eye: Rinse eyes with plenty of low pressure water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin: Remove contaminated shoes and clothing and cleanse affected area(s) thoroughly by washing with mild soap and water. If irritation or redness develops and persists, seek medical attention.

Ingestion: Rinse the mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Get immediate medical attention.

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Notes to Physician: High-pressure hydrocarbon injuries may produce substantial necrosis of underlying tissue despite an innocuous appearing external wound. Often these injuries require extensive emergency surgical debridement and all injuries should be evaluated by a specialist in order to assess the extent of injury.

5. Firefighting Measures
Flammable Properties

Flash Point: 245℃

OSHA Flammability Class: Not applicable

NFPA Flammability Class: No data

LEL%: No data

UEL%: No data

Auto-ignition Temperature: No data

Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazards: This material may burn, but will not ignite readily. Vapors are heavier than air and can accumulate in low areas. If container is not properly cooled, it can rupture in the heat of a fire.

Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam, or water spray is recommended. Water of foam may cause frothing of materials heated above 212℉. Carbon dioxide can displace oxygen. Use caution when applying carbon dioxide in confined spaces.

Firefighting instructions: For fires beyond the incipient stage, emergency responders in the immediate hazard area should wear bunker gear. When the potential chemical hazard is unknown, in enclosed or confined spaces, or when explicitly required by DOT, a self contained breathing apparatus should be worn. In addition, wear other appropriate protective equipment as conditions warrant (see Section 8).

  • Isolate immediate hazard area
  • Keep unauthorized personnel out
  • Stop spill/release if it can be done with minimal risk
  • Move undamaged containers from immediate hazard area if it can be done with minimal risk.
  • Water spray may be useful in minimizing or dispersing vapors and to protect personnel.
  • Cool equipment exposed to fire with water, if it can be done with minimal risk.
  • Avoid spreading burning liquid with water used for cooling purposes.
6. Accidental Release Measures

This material may burn, but will not ignite readily. Keep all sources of ignition away from spill/release, isolate immediate hazard area and keep unauthorized personnel out. Stop spill/release if it can be done with minimal risk. Weak appropriate protective equipment includes respiratory protection as conditions warrant (see Section 8).

Prevent spilled material from entering sewers, storm drains, other unauthorized drainage systems, and natural waterways. Dike far ahead of spill for later recovery or disposal. Spilled material may be absorbed into an appropriate absorbent material.

Notify fire authorities and appropriate federal, state, and local agencies. Immediate cleanup of any spill is recommended. If spill of any amount is made into or upon navigable waters, the contiguous zones, or adjoining shorelines, notify the National Response Center.

7. Handling and Storage

Handling: Do not enter confined spaces such ad tanks or pits without following proper entry procedures such as ASTM D-4276 and 29CFR 1910.146. The use of appropriate respiratory protection is advised when concentrations exceed any established exposure limits (see Section 2 and 8).

Do not wear contaminated clothing or shoes. Use good personal hygiene practices.

“Empty” containers retain residue and may be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose such containers to heat, flame, sparks, or other sources of ignition. They may explode and cause injury or death. “Empty” drums should be completely drained, properly bunged, and promptly shipped to the supplier or a drum reconditioner. All containers should be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner and in accordance with governmental regulations.

High pressure injection of hydrocarbon fuels, hydraulic oils or greases under the skin may have serious consequences even though no symptoms or injury may be apparent. This can happen accidentally when using high pressure equipment such as high pressure grease guns, fuel injection apparatus or from pinhole leaks in tubing of high pressure hydraulic oil equipment.

Before working on or in tanks which contain or have contained this material, refer to OSHA regulation, ANSI Z49.1, and other references pertaining to cleaning, repairing, welding, or other contemplated operations.

Storage: Keep container(s) tightly closed. Store only in approved containers. Used and store this material in cool, dry, well-ventilated areas away from heat and all sources of ignition. Storage temperatures above 113℉ may lead to thermal decomposition, resulting in the generation of hydrogen sulfide and other sulfur containing gases. Keep away from any incompatible material (see Section 10). Protect container(s) against physical damage.

8. Exposure Controls and Personal Protection

Engineering controls: If current ventilation practices are not adequate to maintain airborne concentrations blow the established exposure limits (see Section 2), additional engineering controls may be required.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Respiratory: A NIOSH certified air purifying respirator with a Type 95 (R or P) particulate filter may be used under conditions where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure limits (see Section 2).

Protection provided by air purifying respirators is limited (see manufacture’s respirator selection guide). Use a NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) or equivalent operated in a pressure demand or other positive pressure mode if there is potential for an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or any other circumstances where air purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection

A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator’s use.

Skin: Use gloves impervious to this material to prevent skin contact and possible irritation (see manufactures literature for information on permeability).

Eye/Face: Wear eye goggles to prevent potential eye contact. Depending on conditions of use, a face shield may be necessary.
