TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Highly flammable.  NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.  Use powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION Vapour/air mixtures are explosive.  Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Do NOT use compressed air for filling, discharging, or handling.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 
 
EXPOSURE      
Inhalation   Use ventilation.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin     Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Remove all ignition sources. Consult an expert! Personal protection: self-contained breathing apparatus. Cover the spilled material with foam. Do NOT wash away into sewer.   
EC Classification
 
UN Classification
UN Hazard Class: 3; UN Pack Group: II 
GHS Classification
Signal: Danger
Highly flammable liquid and vapour
Causes eye irritation 
flam;flame

EMERGENCY RESPONSE SAFE STORAGE
  Fireproof. Separated from strong oxidants. Store in an area without drain or sewer access. 

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible. The vapour is heavier than air and may accumulate in lowered spaces causing a deficiency of oxygen. 

Chemical dangers
On combustion, forms toxic and corrosive gases including hydrogen fluoride (see ICSC 0283). Reacts with strong oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV: 100ppm as TWA; (ACGIH 2007).
MAK (not established):. 

Routes of exposure
 

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 substance is mildly irritating to the eyes. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Boiling point: 58°C
Density: 1.4 g/l
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, kPa at 20°C: 31.7
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 8.5
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 3.3
Flash point: -17°C c.c. 
Environmental effects from the substance have not been investigated adequately. 

NOTES
High concentrations in the air cause a deficiency of oxygen with the risk of unconsciousness or death.
Check oxygen content before entering the area.
