Extinguishing Methods: Water, dry extinguishing media, carbon dioxide, foamSpecial Equipment & Procedures: Do not direct solid water stream or foam into hot burning pools. This may cause frothing and increase fire intensity. Use self-contained breathing apparatus & complete protective clothing.
Conditions Contributing to Instability: Avoid moisture
Incompatible Substances: Water, acid, alcohols, amines and alkalis. On contact with water, gaseous decomposition products are formed, which cause build-up of pressure in tightly closed containers. Risk of bursting. Reacts with substances which contain active hydrogen
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, nitrogen oxides, aromatic isocyanates, gases/vapours.
Hazardous Polymerization: Polymerization may occur with incomplete reactants. Especially strong bases, water or temperatures over 190°C. Temperatures over 48°C accelerate the reaction with water.
HEALTH HAZARDS DATA:
NOTE: Health studies have shown that exposure to chemicals pose potential risks which may vary from person to person. Exposure to liquids, vapours, mists or fumes should be minimized
PRINCIPAL HEALTH HAZARDS:
Skin Contact: Contact may cause dry skin, irritate skin or dermatitis
Eye Contact: Irritation and corneal injury
Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal disturbances, pain & discomfort.
Inhalation: May cause irritation of the respiratory tract, narcosis, tightness of chest, difficulty breathing and possible lung damage.
FIRST AID PROCEDURES:
Skin: Wash with soap & water. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.
Eyes: Flush with flowing water for 15 minutes occasionally lifting eyelids. Obtain medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water. Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth if the victim is unconscious or having convulsions. Immediate medical attention required.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air, give oxygen or artificial respiration as required, seek medical attention.
Skin: Always apply appropriate barrier cream to exposed skin. Wear impervious gloves (butyl rubber), coveralls and safety footwear.
Eyes: Chemical proof goggles or full face respirator if vapours cause eye irritation.
Ingestion: Wash thoroughly before consuming food stuffs.
Inhalation: Use only in well ventilated areas or use NIOSH or CAS approved respiratory protection with organic vapour cartridges.
CONTROL MEASURES & PRECAUTIONS
Keep container tightly closed. Do not consume food, drink or tobacco in work area or material storage areas.
Use caution and personal cleanliness to avoid skin and eye contact. Avoid breathing vapours of heated materials.
Use paper covering absorbent wipes and suitable disposable containers in work area.
SPILL, LEAK & DISPOSAL METHODS
Review fire and explosion hazards and safety precautions before proceeding with clean up. Restrict access to area. Contain spill to prevent liquid from entering sewers or waterways. Recover free liquid and use an absorbent material (i.e. sand, vermiculite) to soak up balance. Place in suitable container for disposal.
Dispose only in a facility permitted to dispose of hazardous waste by Federal, Provincial and Municipal regulations.
