| CAS #: 75-15-0
| UN #: 1131
|EC Number: 200-843-6
|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Highly flammable. Many reactions may cause fire or explosion. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Vapour/air mixtures are explosive.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. NO contact with hot surfaces. Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding). Do NOT use compressed air for filling, discharging, or handling. Do NOT expose to friction or shock.||Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF (PREGNANT) WOMEN! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Dizziness. Headache. Nausea. Shortness of breath. Vomiting. Weakness. Irritability. Hallucinations.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Dry skin. Redness. Further see Inhalation.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||First rinse with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, then remove contaminated clothes and rinse again. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||Wear safety goggles, face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Give nothing to drink. Refer for medical attention .|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
|Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus. Remove all ignition sources. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT wash away into sewer.||
According to UN GHS Criteria
|Fireproof. Separated from oxidants and food and feedstuffs. Cool. Store in an area without drain or sewer access.|
Put breakable packaging into closed unbreakable container.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
