FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA
Flash Point : 20 deg F (Methyl Ethyl Ketone)
Upper Explosive Limit (UEL) (%) : 11.4 Methyl Ethyl Ketone
Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) (%) : 1.8 Methyl Ethyl Ketone
Upper Explosive Limit (UEL) (%) : 19.0 Ethanol
Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) (%) : 3.3 Ethanol
Auto-Ignition Temperature : Not established
Extinguishing Media : Dry Chemical; Carbon Dioxide; Form; Water
Special Fire Fighting Procedures : Full emergency equipment with self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing should be worn by firefighters. During a fire, irritating, highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
Unusual Fire / Explosion Hazards : Isolate from heat, electrical equipment, sparks and open flame. Closed container may explode when contaminated with water (CO2 evolved). Solvent vapors may be heavier than air.
Stagnant air may cause vapors to build up and travel along the ground to an ignition source which may result in a flash back to the source of the vapors.
This product is stable
Conditions to avoid: moisture, excessive heat, sources of ignition
Incompatibility: avoid water, reactive materials
Hazards decomposition products: carbon dioxide/ carbon monoxide/ metal oxides
Hazards polymerization: None
HEALTH HAZARD DATA
Acute Hazard: Burning, tearing, drying or cracking of skin, coughing, chest pain, difficulty in breathing, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea. Medical conditions generally aggravated by exposure-any respiratory or skin condition
Possible routes of entry: inhalation, ingestion, skin absorption
Emergency and first aid procedures: Eyes: Flush with water for 15 minutes. Skin: Wash with soap and water, not with solvents. Inhalation: Remove to fresh air from exposure area., give CPR if necessary. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. In all cases, obtain immediate medical attention.
PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
Precautions to be taken in handling storage:
Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not store above 110 deg. F. Empty containers may contain solvent vapors. Do not cut, puncture or weld containers. All label warning must be observed, until container has been cleaned or reconditioned, or properly disposed of. Mix material well to proper specifications.
Spills: Wear air supplied NIOSH approved respirator for major unventilated release. Cover with absorbent material and keep loosely covered for 48 hours. Clean up residue with solvent.
Ventilate area; remove spills with inert absorbent.
Waste disposal method: Dispose in chemical disposal area or in a manner that complies with local state and federal regulations, do not incinerate closed containers.
Use solvent resistant protective gloves, chemical splash safety glasses, and protective solvent resistant apron.
