POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS

PRIMARY ROUTE(S) OF ENTRY
Skin.

EYES
Tests on similar materials suggest acute irritation.

SKIN
Tests on similar materials indicate acute irritation upon short-term exposure and chronic dermatitis on prolonged contact.

INGESTION
Acute aspiration hazard. Tests on similar materials indicate the possibility of the following symptoms: headache, nausea, drowsiness, fatigue, pneumonitis, pulmonary adema, central nervous system depression, convulsions, and loss of consciousness.

INHALATION
Acute Irritation. Tests on similar materials indicate the possibility of the following symptoms: headache, nasal and respiratory irritation, nausea, drowsiness, breathlessness, fatigue, central nervous system depression, convulsions, and loss of consciousness.

CHRONIC (CANCER INFORMATION)
Prolonged and/or repeated contact with this material may produce skin and eye irritation.

Carcinogen listed by:
National Toxicology Program

(NO)

This product does not require a cancer hazard warning in accordance with the OSHA Hazard Communicated Standard.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
Personnel with pre-existing skin disorders should avoid contact with this product.




4. FIRST AID MEASURES

EYES
Flush eyes immediately with water a minimum of 15 minutes occasionally lifting lower and upper lids. Get medical attention promptly.

SKIN
Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Immediately remove contaminated clothing and launder before reuse. If irritation or rash develops, obtain medical assistance.

INGESTION
Call a physician immediately. Do not induce vomiting except at the instruction of a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

INHALATION
Remove patient to fresh air and consult a physician. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing give artificial respiration.




5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

FLAMMABLE PROPERTIES
FLASH POINT: <0F <-18C Tag Closed Cup
AUTOIGNITION: n/av. F n/av. C
FLAMMABILITY CLASS: IB
LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT (%): n/av. % (estimated)
UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT (%): n/av. % (estimated)
FIRE AND EXPLOSIVE HAZARDS
Can form flammable mixtures with air and flash at room temperature. Explosion hazard in fire situation. Vapor heavier than air and may travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Dry Chemical, carbon dioxide, and foam. CAUTION: Water stream may spread fire.
FIRE FIGHTERING INSTRUCTIONS
Use water spray only to cool containers exposed to flames. Do not enter enclosed or a confined work space without proper protective equipment. Fire fighting personnel should wear respiratory protection (positive pressure if available). If leak or spill has not ignited, use water spray to disperse the vapors.
Products of combustion include fumes, smoke and carbon monoxide.



6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Notify emergency response personnel. Evacuate area and remove ignition sources. Build dike to contain flow. Remove free liquid. Shut off ignition source. Contain spill and keep from entering waterways or sewers. Use personal protective equipment. Advise EPA; state agency if required. Absorb on inert material. Shovel, sweep or vacuum spill and place in closed container for disposal.



7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

HANDLING AND STORAGE PRECAUTIONS
Store as OSHA Class IB flammable liquid. Keep away from flames, sparks or hot surfaces. Never use a torch to cut or weld on or near container. Empty oil containers can contain explosive vapors. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not store with strong oxidizers. Lab samples should be sorted and handled in a lab hood. Use explosion proof ventilation equipment.

STORAGE PRECAUTIONS
Empty containers retain product residue (liquid and Vapor) and can be dangerous. Do not pressurize.
Storage Temperature: ambient or less

WORK/HYGIENIC PRACTICES
Wash hands with soap and water before eating, drinking, smoking or use of toilet facilities. Take a shower after work if general contact occurs. Remove oil-soaked clothing and launder before reuse. Launder or discard contaminated shoes and leather gloves.




8. EXPOSURE ONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

ENGINEERING CONTROLS
Use adequate ventilation to keep oil mists of this material below applicable standard(S). See Section on occupational exposure limits.
EYE/FACE PROTECTION
Safety glasses, splash goggles, of face shield as appropriate. Have suitable eye water wash available.
SKIN PROTECTION
Avoid prolonged and/or repeated skin contact. If prolonged contact cannot be avoided, wear protective impervious gloves and clothing. Acceptable materials for gloves are neoprene; nitrilee; viton.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
Up to 500 ppm hexane / 4000 ppm naptha, half mask organic vapor respirator. Up to 2500 ppm hexane / 20,000 ppm naptha, full face organic vapor respirator or full face supplied air respirator. Greater that 2500 ppm hexane / 20,000 ppm naptha, fire fighting, or unknown concentration, self contained breathing apparatus with positive pressure.
OTHER/GENERAL PROTECTION
If there is a likelihood of splashing, an oil resistant clothing should be worn. Never wear oil soaked clothing. Launder or dry clean before wearing. Discard oil soaked shoes. Affix warning labels on containers in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.1200 (Hazard Communication Standard).
Maintain local or dilution ventilation to keep air concentration below 50 ppm hexane / 400 ppm naptha. Loading, unloading, tank gauging, etc., remain upwind. Request assistance of safety and industrial hygiene personnel to determine air concentrations.
