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. |
|Inhalation||Sore throat. Cough.

clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. |
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Blurred
vision. Possible corneal damage.
||Safety spectacles or
face shield. Contact lenses should not be worn.
||First rinse with plenty
of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible),

from strong oxidants. |
COLOURLESS LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.
The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible.
The substance can form explosive peroxides on contact with strong oxidants such as acetic acid, nitric acid, hydrogen peroxide. Reacts with chloroform and bromoform under basic conditions, causing fire and explosion hazard. Attacks plastic.
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 750 ppm; 1780 mg/m 3 (ACGIH 1993-1993).
|ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and through the skin.
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C on dispersing however much faster.
EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The vapour irritates the eyes and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system, liver, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract.
EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. The substance may have effects on the blood and bone marrow.
