Section IV. Fire and Explosion Data

Flash point Flammable limits

CLOSED CUP: 179°C LOWER: 1.1% UPPER: 5.1%

Auto-ignition temperature Not available.

Fire degradation products Fire extinguishing procedures

Oxides of carbon and nitrogen.

Use alcohol-type or all-purpose type foam by manufacturer's recommended techniques for large fires. Use carbon dioxide or dry chemical media for small fires. Wear adequate personal protection to prevent contact with material or its combustion products. Self contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in a pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. Do not direct a solid stream of water or foam into burning molten material; this may cause spattering and spread the fire.

Fire and Explosion Hazards

This material may undergo a self-sustaining thermal decomposition when heated to temperatures above 250°C. Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions. The sensitivity to static discharge is not available. The sensitivity to impact is not available. Vapor forms explosive mixture with air between upper and lower explosive limits.

Section V. Toxicological Properties

Routes of entry Effects of Acute Exposure Eye

Inhalation and ingestion. Skin contact. Eye contact. Skin absorption. Harmful by inhalation, ingestion or skin absorption. Irritant.

May cause irritation, experienced as stinging with excess blinking and tear production. Excess redness and swelling of the conjunctiva may occur. IRRITATION: EYE-RABBIT 20 mg SEVERE. Brief contact may cause slight irritation with itching and local redness. Prolonged contact may cause severe irritation, with local discomfort or pain, and local redness and swelling. IRRITATION: SKIN-RABBIT 560 mg/24H MILD. Mists and vapors formed from heated solutions may be irritating and cause coughing and discomfort in the nose, throat, and chest.




May cause burning or painful sensations in the mouth, throat, chest, and abdomen, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. May cause dizziness, drowsiness, faitness, weakness, collapse, and coma.

Section V. Toxicological Properties

Effects of Chronic Overexposure


page 3/4

Repeated exposure may cause kidney and liver damage. Skin contact may cause sensitization and an allergic skin reaction in a small proportion of individuals. Because of its irritating properties, this material may aggravate an existing dermatitis. Carcinogenic effects: Not available. Mutagenic effects: Not available. Teratogenic effects: Not available. Toxicity of the product to the reproductive system: Not available. To the best of our knowledge the chronic toxicity of this substance has not been fully investigated. Medical conditions which may be aggravated: Individuals with preexisting diseases of the skin, eye, or respiratory system may be more susceptible to the toxicity of overexposure to this product.

Section VI. First Aid Measures

Eye contact

Immediately flush eyes with copious quantities of water for at least 15 minutes holding lids apart to ensure flushing of the entire surface. Call a physician.

Skin contact

Immediately flush skin with plenty of water and soap for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. If irritation occurs or persists seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.


Remove patient to fresh air. Administer approved oxygen supply if breathing is difficult. Administer artificial respiration or CPR if breathing has ceased. Call a physician.


If conscious, wash out mouth with water. Have conscious person drink several glasses of water to dilute. Induce vomiting. Call a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person.

Section VII. Reactivity Data


Unstable. Air and light sensitive. Conditions to avoid: High temperatures, sparks, open flames and all other sources of ignition, contamination. Temperatures above 250°C - may undergo self-sustaining thermal decomposition.

Hazardous decomp. products Incompatibility

Acids, bases, oxidizing agents, aldehydes, ketones, acrylates, organic anhydrides, organic halides, copper and copper alloys, zinc, iron, non-ferrous metals, maleic anhydride, acrolein, calcium hypochlorite, sodium hypochlorite, nitrosyl perchlorate, nitrosating agents, nitrites.

Reaction Products

(Synergistic products) Secondary and tertiary amines may react with nitrosating agents to form nitrosamines. Some nitrosamines have been shown to be carcinogenic in laboratory animals. Hazardous polymerization will not occur.

Section VIII. Preventive Measures

Protective Clothing in Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, rubber boots and heavy rubber gloves. case of spill and leak

Spill and leak

Evacuate the area. Absorb on sand or vermiculite and place in a closed container for disposal. Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pick up is complete. DO NOT empty into drains. DO NOT touch damaged container or spilled material.

Waste disposal

Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an after burner and scrubber. According to all applicable regulations.

Storage and Handling

Store in a cool place away from heated areas, sparks, and flame. Store in a well ventilated area. Store away from incompatible materials. Do not add any other material to the container. Do not wash down the drain. Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapor/spray. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Keep away from direct sunlight or strong incandescent light. Keep container tightly closed and dry. Manipulate in a well ventilated area or under an adequate fume hood. Product is highly hygroscopic. Empty containers may contain a hazardous residue. Handle and open container with care. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. This product must be manipulated by qualified personnel. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Wash well after use. In accordance with good storage and handling practices. Do not allow smoking and food consumption while handling. Keep above freezing point.

Section IX. Protective Measures

Protective clothing

Splash goggles. Impervious (butyl PVC-coated) gloves, apron, coveralls, and/or other resistant protective clothing. Sufficient to protect skin. A OSHA/MSHA jointly approved respirator is advised in the absence of proper environmental controls. If more than TLV, do not breathe vapor. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Do not wear contact lenses. Make eye bath and emergency shower available. Ensure that eyewash station and safety shower is proximal to the work-station location.

Engineering controls

Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. Do not use in unventilated spaces.

Section X. Other Information

Special Precautions or Irritant! Harmful liquid! Do not breathe vapor. Avoid all contact with the product. Avoid comments prolonged or repeated exposure. Manipulate in a well ventilated area or under an adequate fume hood. To the best of our knowledge, the chemical, physical and toxicity of this substance has not been fully investigated. Handle and open container with care. Container should be opened only by a technically qualified person. PROCESS HAZARD: Sudden release of hot organic chemical vapors or mists from process equipment operating at elevated temperature and pressure, or sudden ingress of air into vacuum equipment, may result in ignitions without the presence of obvious ignition sources. Published "autoignition" and "ignition" temperature values cannot be treated as safe operating temperatures in chemical processes without analysis of the actual process conditions. Any use of this product in elevated-temperature processes should be thoroughly evaluated to establish and maintain safe operating conditions. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: There is no specific antidote. Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient. The hazards of this material are due mainly to its severely irritant properties on skin and mucosal surfaces. RTECS NO: KL9275000 (2,2',2''-Nitrilotriethanol).
