Section V — Reactivity Data
Conditions to Avoid: Heat and open flames.
Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid)
Hazardous Decomposition or Byproducts
Thermal decomposition products are highly dependent on the combustion conditions. A complex mixture of airborne solid, liquid, particulates & gases will evolve when this material undergoes pyrolysis of combustion. Carbon Monoxide&other unidentified organic compounds may be formed upon combustion.
May Occur Conditions to Avoid
Section VI — Health Hazard Data
Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation?
Not a problem under normal application temperatures.
Avoid skin contact, may cause dermatitis.
Ingestion? In case of ingestion consult physician immediately.
Health Hazards (Acute and Chronic)
NTP? No IARC Monographs?
Signs and Symptoms of Exposure
Dermatitis is possible in some individuals.
Emergency and First Aid Procedures
Skin contact: Remove by wiping and wash with soap and water. Lubricating oils are generally considered no more than minimally irritating to the eyes. If irritation occur wash eye with water for at least 15 minutes and seek medical attention. Inhalation: remove from exposure to mists and fumes. Ingestion: lubricating oils are generally considered no more than slightly toxic when swallowed. In case of ingestion do not induce vomiting,seek medical aid
Section VII — Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
Steps to Be Taken in Case Material Is Released or Spilled
1) Stop flow or eliminate source of leakage. 2) Eliminate all sources of ignition. 3) Absorb liquid with oil absorbent material. Avoid dermal contact and remove any contaminated clothing. Wear appropriated protective equipment such as gloves,safety glasses and protective clothing when cleaning up a spill
Waste Disposal Method
Dispose of in compliance with all federal, state and local regulations.
Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storing
Minimize skin contact. Wash with soap & water before eating or drinking, smoking or using toilet facilities. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Properly dispose of articles that cannot be decontaminated. Store in a cool dry place with adequate ventilation. Keep away from open flames& high temperatures.
Other Precautions : None
Section VIII — Control Measures
Respiratory Protection (Specify Type)
Requires no special protection for use at room temperature.
Ventilation Local Exhaust
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment : None
Handle and store using methods generally advocated for combustible hydrocarbons. Do not wear contaminated clothing.
