TYPES OF HAZARD
/ EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   AVOID ALL CONTACT!   
Inhalation   Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Dry skin. Redness.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Dizziness. Drowsiness.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Ventilation. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
ODOURLESS YELLOWISH BROWN VISCOUS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. Reacts with strong oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):.
MAK: Carcinogen category: 3A; Skin absorption (H); Sensitization of skin (SH); (DFG 2004). 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour. 

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes and skin. Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Melting point: 8-12°C
