Flammability Yes OSHA Class IB Means of Extinction Water, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam Flashpoint and Method 22.7°C (73° F) Closed Cup Autoignition Temperature 363°C (685°F) Ethanol Explosion Data Upper Flammable Limit (% by vol.) 19.0 Ethanol Hazardous Combustion Products Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide Sensitivity to Static Charge Probably will not accumulate static charge due to high electrical conductivity, however, proper grounding during bulk product transfer is recommended (NFPA 77). Lower Flammable Limit 3.3 Ethanol If yes, under which conditions? Excessive heat, sparks and open flames

Sensitivity to Impact

Vapors are heavier than air and may settle in low areas. Vapors may travel long distances to an ignition source and flash back explosively. Flame may be invisible. Not sensitive to impact. See Section V for incompatibilities.


Chemical Stability Yes X No If no, under which conditions?

Incompatibility with other substances Yes X No If so, which ones? Strong oxidizing agents, strong acids, strong bases. Mixtures of alcohols with the following materials may cause explosions: barium perchlorate, chlorine, ethylene oxide and isocyanates Reactivity and under what conditions Contact with incompatibilities Hazardous decomposition products None reported


Skin Contact ­ May cause mild irritation, redness, cracking and drying. Skin Absorption ­ May be absorbed by the skin, however, harmful effects are not expected by this route of exposure Eye Contact ­ Causes irritation, redness, pain and blurred vision Inhalation ­ Causes irritation of the respiratory tract. High concentrations may cause central nervous system depression, with weakness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue and loss of consciousness. Ingestion ­ Poisonous. Causes nausea, headache, double vision. May cause unconsciousness or death Effects of Acute Exposure See above Effects of Chronic Exposure Repeated exposure by inhalation may cause systemic poisoning, impaired vision or blindness. Inhalation may worsen conditions such as emphysema or bronchitis. Repeated skin exposure may cause defatting of the skin. Exposure Limits Isopropanol Methanol Ethanol Acetic Acid PEL 400 ppm 200 ppm 1000 ppm 10 ppm STEL 500 ppm 250 ppm N/A 15 ppm Agency OSHA, ACGIH OSHA, ACGIH OSHA ACGIH OSHA, ACGIH

Irritancy ­ Mild irritant to skin. Moderate to severe irritant to eyes. Sensitization ­ Insufficient information Carcinogencity ­ No Teratogencity ­ Insufficient information Reproductive Toxicity ­ Insufficient information Mutagencity ­ Insuficient information Synergistic ­ Can enhance the toxicity of carbon tetrachloride, 1,1,2-trichloroethane, chloroform, trichloroethylene and dimethylnitrosamine.


Gloves Yes, with appropriate breakthrough resistance. (Nitrile or butyl rubber) Footwear N/A Engineering Controls General mechanical ventilation or fume hood Leak and Spill Procedure Eliminate or shut off all ignition sources. Avoid eye or skin contact. Place leaking containers in a well ventilated area. Contain spill to minimize contaminated area using an absorbent material. Place waste materials into a properly labeled container for disposal. For larger spills, dike the spill to minimize contamination and facilitate salvage or disposal. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to natural waterways. If fire potential exists, blanket spill with foam or use water spray to disperse vapors. Waste Disposal Dispose of this material in accordance with applicable federal, provincial, state and local authorities. RCRA Hazardous Waste Code ­ D001 for ignitability or F003 if used for solvent properties Handling Procedures and Equipment Hydrostatically ground drums during dispensing. Do not use near open flame or sparks. Keep container closed and out of reach of children. Assure adequate fire protection is available. Storage Requirements Store at room temperature: 15°-30°C (59° ­86°F). Store in a flammable liquid safety cabinet if possible. Respirator NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator in the absence of proper ventilation Clothing Laboratory Coat Eye Protection Goggles or face shield if splashing could occur Other


Specific Measures Eye Contact ­ Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician. If eye irritation persists due to exposure refer to an opthalmologist for evaluation. Skin Contact ­ Remove contaminated clothing immediately. Wash the affected area of your body with soap or mild detergent and large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Inhalation ­ Move individual to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If breathing has stopped, administer artificial respiration. Call a physician. Ingestion ­ ANTIDOTE: Unless unconscious or convulsing, give large amounts of water or milk to induce vomiting. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: When plasma methanol concentrations exceed 20 mg/dl and when there is evidence of acidosis or visual abnormalities, a 10% solution of ethanol in 5% dextrose administered intravenously is a safe, effective antidote.
