Hazard IdentificationEmergency Overview:
- Class: Flammable liquids; Acute-toxic substances
- Physical and chemical hazards: Highly flammable liquid. Easily forms an explosive air mixture.
- Potential health effects: May cause symptoms, such as dizziness and headache, if vapor of the solvent is inhaled.
Accidental Release Measures
- Keep people away from the area of the leak by fencing it off with a rope. Eliminate all sources of ignition around the area of the leak, and bring in extinguishing equipment. In case of large amounts, dike the spill by surrounding it with earth or the like to contain it.
- In case of small amounts, wipe off the spill with paper or cloth. In case of large amounts, scoop up the spill using non-sparking tools into an empty container that can be tightly closed, and burn the collected spill.
- Dispose waste into legal dump site according to local or state regulations.
- If the spill is discharged or other accidents happen, notify relevant public offices, including police and fire stations, of the accident.
Handling and Storage
Protect against physical damage. Strictly keep away from all sources of fire. Avoid contact with flame, sparks and high temperatures. Do not use any machines or the like that may become sources of ignition. Handle at well-ventilated areas. Use safety glasses and protective mask, as appropriate.
Keep the container tightly closed, and store it in a dark, cool place, and away from direct sunlight. In addition, all electric equipment in the work area should have explosion-proof structures. Follow the applicable laws and regulations, including the Fire Services Law.
