Health Hazards Acute And Chronic  EYE: MAY CAUSE IRRITATION. DIRECT CONTACT MAY CAUSE PAIN, CORNEAL INFLAMMATION AND POSSIBLE CORNEAL DAMAGE. SKIN: ABSORPTION FROM PROLONGED OR MASSIVE SKIN CONTACT MAY CAUSE POISONING. REPEATED OR PROLONGED CONTACT MAY RESULT IN DEFATTING, REDNESS, ITCHIG, INFLAMMATION, CRACKING. INHILATION: MAY IRRITATE THE RESPIRATORY TRACT AND MUCOUS MEMBRANES. MAY CAUSE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM SYMPTOMS. INGESTION: PRIMARY TOXIC EFFECTS ARE METABOLIC ACIDONIS AND VISUAL DAMAGE (BLINDNESS) . SEVERE INTOXICATION MAY CAUS HYPOGLYCEMIA. CHRONIC: MAY CAUSE CHANGES IN LIVER, KIDNEYS, BRAIN, GI TRACT AND HEART MUSCLE. SYMPTOMS MAY BE DELAYED.
Explanation Of Carcinogenicity  NOT PROVIDED.
Signs And Symptions Of Overexposure  EYE: MAY CAUSE IRRITATION. DIRECT CONTACT MAY CAUSE PAIN, CORNEAL INFLAMMATION AND POSSIBLE CORNEAL DAMAGE. SKIN: ABSORPTION FROM PROLONGED OR MASSIVE SKIN CONTACT MAY CAUSE POISONING. REPEATED OR PROLONGED CONTACT MAY RESULT IN DEFATTING, REDNESS, ITCHIG, INFLAMMATION, CRACKING. INHILATION: MAY IRRITATE THE RESPIRATORY TRACT AND MUCOUS MEMBRANES. MAY CAUSE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM SYMPTOMS. INGESTION: PRIMARY TOXIC EFFECTS ARE METABOLIC ACIDONIS AND VISUAL DAMAGE (BLINDNESS). SEVERE INTOXICATION MAY CAUSEHYPOGLYCEMIA.
Medical Cond Aggravated By Exposure  PERSONS WITH PRE-EXISTING LIVER IMPAIRMENT, SKIN AND RESPIRATORY DISORDERS MAY BE AT INCREASE RISK FROM EXPOSURE.



First Aid
     EYES: FLUSH WITH LARGE AMOUNT OF WATER FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES. EYELIDS SHOULD BE HELD AWAY FROM THE EYEBALL TO ENSURE THOROUGH RINSING. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION. SKIN: REMOVE CONTAMINATED CLOTHING. WASH AREA OF CONTACT THOROUGHLY WITH SOAP A ND WATER. LAUDER CLOTHING BEFORE REUSE. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION. INHILATION: REMOVE AFFECTED PERSON FROM SOURCE OF EXPOSURE. IF NOT BREATHING, ENSURE CLEAR AIRWAY AND INSTITUTE CPR. IF BREATHING IS DIFFICULT, ADMINISTER OXYGEN AND KEEP PERSO N WARM AND AT REST. GET MEDIAL ATTENTION. INGESTION: IF CONSCIOUS, GIVE 1-3 GLASSES OF WATER AND INDUCE VOMITING. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.



Spill Release Procedures
    KEEP UNNECESSARY PEOPLE AWAY. STAY UPWIND; KEEP OUT OF LOW AREAS. ISOLATE FOR 1/2 MILE RADIUS IF TANK, RAIL CAR/TANK TRUCK IS INVOLVED IN FIRE. SHUT OFF IGNITION SOURCES. DO NOT TOUCH/WALK THROUGH SPILLED MATERIAL; STOP LEAK IF YOU CAN WITH OUT RISK. WATR SPRAY MAY REDUCE VAPOR. TAKE UP SMALL SPILLS WITH SAND AND PLACE INTO CONTAINERS FOR DISPOSAL. FOR LARGE SPILLS, DIKE FAR AHEAD OF LIQUID SPILL.

Extinguishing Media  DRY CHEMICAL, ALCOHOL FOAM, ALL PURPOSE AFFF OR CARBON DIOXIDE TO EXTINGUISH FIRES. WATER MAY BE INEFFECTIVE BUT SHOULD BE USED TO COOL FIRE-EXPOSED CONTAINERS AND PERSONNEL.
Fire Fighting Procedures  IF LEAK HAS NOT IGNITED, USE WATER SPRAY TO DISPERSE VAPOR. USE WATER TO DILUTE SPILLS AND TO FLUSH THEM AWAY FROM SOURCES OF IGNITION. DO NOT FLUSH DOWN PUBLIC SEWER/DRAINAGE. FIREFIGHTERS MUST WEAR NIOSH APPROVED POSITIVE PRESSURE SELF-CO NTAINED BREATHNG APPARATUS WITH FULL FACE MASK AND PROTECTIVE CLOTHING.
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard  DANGER!. VAPORS FORM FLAMMABLE/EXPLOSIVE MIXTURES WITH AIR. VAPOR OR GAS MAY SPREAD TO DISTANT IGNITION SOURCES AND FLASH-BACK. RUNOFF TO SEWER MAY CAUSE FIRE/EXPLOSION HAZARD. CONTAINERS MAY EXPLODE IN HEAT OF FIRE. VAPORS MAYCONCENTRATE I N CONFINED ARES. IRRITATING/TOXIC SUBSTANCES MAY BE FORMED.
