TYPES OF HAZARD
|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible.||NO open flames.||Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, powder, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 66°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||Above 66°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!|
|Inhalation||Dizziness. Headache. Drowsiness. Nausea. Unconciousness.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Skin||Dry skin.||Protective gloves.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness.||Wear safety goggles.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Aspiration hazard! Cough. Diarrhoea. Sore throat. Vomiting. Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer immediately for medical attention. See Notes.|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Ventilation. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.||

This is a complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained by treating a petroleum fraction with hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst. It consists of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C9 through C16 and boiling in the range of approximately 150°C to 290°C (302°F to 554°F).
The same CAS number has also been used to identify several products. Variations in UN numbers, Hazard Classes and Packing Groups are possible.
Depending on the raw material and the production processes, the composition and physical properties of this solvent can vary considerably.
The symptoms of chemical pneumonitis do not become manifest until a few hours or even a few days have passed.
In the EU this product is registered according REACH registration number 01-2119484819-18-0010
