3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
This product is considered hazardous according to regulatory guidelines
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: Clear (May Be Dyed) Liquid. Material is combustible. Liquid can release vapors that form flammable mixtures at or
above the flash point. Product can accumulate a static charge which may cause a fire and explosion.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS: Respiratory irritation, headache, dizziness, nausea, loss of consciousness, and in cases of extreme exposure,
possibly death. Prolonged, repeated skin contact may result in skin irritation or more serious skin disorders. Low viscosity material-if
swallowed may enter the lungs and cause lung damage.
POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS: Toxic to aquatic organisms; may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYE CONTACT: Flush thoroughly with water. If irritation occurs, call a physician.
SKIN CONTACT: Remove contaminated clothing. Dry wipe exposed skin and cleanse yourself with waterless hand cleaner and follow by
washing thoroughly with soap and water. For those providing assistance, avoid further contact to yourself or others. Wear impervious
gloves. Launder contaminated clothing separately before reuse. Discard contaminated articles that cannot be laundered. INHALATION:
Remove from further exposure. If respiratory irritation, dizziness, nausea, or unconsciousness occurs, seek immediate medical assistance. If
breathing has stopped, assist ventilation with mechanical device or use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
INGESTION: Seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting.
PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS WHICH MAY BE AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE:
Hydrocarbon solvents/Petroleum Hydrocarbons- Skin contact may aggravate an existing dermatitis.
5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Carbon dioxide, foam, dry chemical and water fog.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Water may be ineffective, but water should be used to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Prevent
runoff from fire control or dilution from entering streams, sewers, or drinking water supply.
SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: For fires in enclosed areas, fire fighters must use self-contained breathing apparatus.
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Material is combustible. Liquid can release vapors that readily form flammable mixtures at or above
the flash point. Product can accumulate a static charge which may cause a fire and explosion.
COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Fumes, smoke, carbon monoxide, sulfur oxides, aldehydes and other decomposition products, in the case of

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES: Report spills/releases as required to appropriate authorities.
PROCEDURES IF MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED:
LAND SPILL: Eliminate sources of ignition. Shut off source taking normal safety precautions. Take measures to minimize the effects on
ground water, sewers, water sources. Recover by pumping using explosion-proof equipment or contain spilled liquid with sand or other
suitable absorbent and remove mechanically into containers.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
HANDLING: Keep product away from high energy ignition sources, heat, sparks, pilot lights, static electricity, and open flame. Harmful in contact
with or if absorbed through the skin. Avoid inhalation of vapors or mists. Use in well ventilated area away from all ignition sources.
STORAGE: Store in a cool area. Avoid sparking conditions. Ground and bond all transfer equipment.
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS: To prevent and minimize fire or explosion risk from static accumulation and discharge, effectively bond and/or
ground product transfer system.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
We recommend an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) exposure of 500 mg/m3 total vapor (approx. 100 ppm) or 5 mg/m3 stable aerosols.
VENTILATION: Use in well ventilated area with local exhaust ventilation.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Approved respiratory equipment must be used when airborne concentrations are unknown or exceed the
recommended exposure limit.
EYE PROTECTION: If splash with liquid is possible, chemical type goggles should be worn.
SKIN PROTECTION: Impervious gloves must be worn.

ECOTOXICITY: Based on test results for similar products, this substance may be toxic to aquatic organisms such as algae and daphnia and to
specific fish species .
MOBILITY: Dissolution of the higher molecular weight hydrocarbon components in water will be limited, but losses through sediment
adsorption may be significant.
