TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION     In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 
 
EXPOSURE      
Inhalation Dizziness. Headache.  Use local exhaust.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Dry skin.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety spectacles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Diarrhoea. Nausea.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention . See Notes. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Ventilation. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.   
EC Classification
Symbol: T; R: 45; S: 53-45; Note: H, L 
UN Classification
 
GHS Classification
 

EMERGENCY RESPONSE SAFE STORAGE
  Separated from strong oxidants. 

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
AMBER VISCOUS LIQUID WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Reacts with strong oxidants. This generates fire and explosion hazard. 

Occupational exposure limits
 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is mildly irritating to the skin. If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis. 

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


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Boiling point: 150-600°C
Relative density (water = 1): ~0.84-0.94 (15°C)
Flash point: >124°C
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.9-6 (calculated) 
 

NOTES
A raffinate contains C20-C50 hydrocarbons with a viscosity of less than 19 cSt at 40°C (100 SUS at 100°F).
Depending on the raw material and the production processes, the composition and physical properties of this solvent can vary considerably.
The symptoms of chemical pneumonitis do not become manifest until a few hours or even a few days have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Note L: the EU classification as carcinogen (R45) does not apply if it can be shown that DMSO extract (IP 346) is below 3% by volume.
PY8040500 refers to mineral oil, petroleum distillate, solvent refined (mild) heavy paraffinic; PY8040501 refers to mineral oil, petroleum distillate, solvent refined (severe) heavy paraffinic.
Card has been partly updated in April 2005.
