Section 3: Hazard Identification
Emergency Overview: Poison! Danger! Corrosive liquid. Vapor Harmful. May be fatal or cause
blindness if swallowed. Causes severe burns to all areas of contact. Harmful if inhaled or
absorbed through skin. Flammable Liquid. Inhalation may cause lung and tooth damage.
Immediately wash areas of contact with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Affects central
nervous system and liver
Target Organs: eyes, skin, respiratory system, teeth, central nervous system, and liver
Eye Contact: Eye contact may cause severe eye damage followed by loss of sight. Vapor
exposure may cause watering and irritation to eyes.
Inhalation: Inhalation of concentrated vapors may cause serious damage to the lining of the
nose, throat and lungs. Toxic effects exerted upon central nervous system. Symptoms of
overexposure may include headache, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, blindness,
coma, and death
Skin Contact: May cause serious damage to the skin. Effects may include redness, pain, skin
burns. If absorbed symptoms may parallel inhalation exposure.
Ingestion: Toxic. Swallowing can cause severe injury leading to death. Symptoms may parallel
inhalation exposure and also include sore throat. Usual fatal dose: 500-600 milliliters based on
Methanol
Chronic Effects/Carcinogenicity: Repeated exposures may cause erosion of exposed front
teeth, darkening of skin and chronic inflammation of the nose, throat and bronchial tubes.
Marked impairment of vision may occur.
IARC - No. NTP - No.

Eye Contact: Irrigate immediately with large quantity of water for at least 15 minutes. Get
medical attention immediately.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if necessary. If breathing is difficult,
give oxygen.
Skin Contact: Flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician if irritation
develops.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Give large quantity of water. Call a physician immediately.
Section 5. Fire Fighting Measures
Flash Point: 52°F (Methanol)
Method Used: CC
Extinguishing Media: Use water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide for
extinguishing the surrounding fire Water spray can be used to dilute spills to non-flammable
mixtures.
Fire & Explosion Hazards: Above flash point, vapor-air mixtures are explosive within
flammable limits noted above. Contact with strong oxidizers may cause fire. Vapors can flow
along surfaces to distant ignition source and flash back. Reacts with most metals to produce
hydrogen gas, which can form explosive mixture with air
Fire Fighting Instructions: Use normal procedures/instructions.
Fire Fighting Equipment: Use protective clothing and breathing equipment appropriate for the
surrounding fire.
Section 6. Accidental Release Measures
Ventilate area of leak or spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in
Section VIII. Contain and recover liquid when possible. Collect liquid in an appropriate
container or absorb with an inert material (e. g., vermiculite, dry sand, earth), and place in a
chemical waste container. Do not use combustible materials, such as saw dust. Do not flush to
sewer! US Regulations (CERCLA) require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in
excess of reportable quantities. The toll free number for the US Coast Guard National Response
Center is (800) 424-8802.
Section 7. Handling and Storage
Keep in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical
damage. Separate from acids and alkalis. Containers of this material may be hazardous when
empty since they retain product residues (vapors, liquid); observe all warnings and precautions
listed for the product. As with all chemicals, wash hands thoroughly after handling. Avoid
contact with eyes and skin. Protect from freezing and physical damage.
SAFETY STORAGE CODE: Corrosive, Flammable
Section 8. Exposure Control/Personal Protection
Engineering Controls: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep
employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limit.

Skin Protection: Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron
or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or a full face shield where splashing is
possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.

Section 12. Ecological Information
Ecotoxicological Information:
Acetic Acid: has high biochemical oxygen demand, and a potential to cause oxygen depletion in
aqueous systems, low potential to affect aquatic organisms and a low potential to affect the
growth of some plant seedlings.
Methanol: When released into the soil, this material is expected to readily biodegrade. When
released into the soil, this material is expected to leach into groundwater. When released into the
soil, this material is expected to quickly evaporate. When released into the water, this material is
expected to have a half-life between 1 and 10 days. When released into water, this material is
expected to readily biodegrade. When released into the air, this material is expected to exist in
the aerosol phase with a short half-life. When released into the air, this material is expected to be
readily degraded by reaction with photochemically produced hydroxyl radicals. When released
