TYPES OF HAZARD
/ EXPOSURE
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. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Reacts with strong oxidants. This generates fire and explosion hazard. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (as total hydrocarbons): 200ppm as TWA;.
MAK (inhalable fraction): 20 ppm, 140 mg/m³; Carcinogen category: 3B; Peak limitation category: II(2); Pregnancy risk group: C; (DFG 2011). 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The vapour is mildly irritating to the eyes. If swallowed the substance easily enters the airways and could result in aspiration pneumonitis. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system. Exposure to high concentrations of vapour could cause unconsciousness. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
The substance defats the skin, which may cause dryness or cracking.

The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment. 

NOTES
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
