IV. FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA:
Flash Point: 108oF to 245oF, per ASTM D56; tag closed cup.
Autoignition Temperature: n/a
Flammability Limits in Air (by vol. at 200oF): 1.7% to 15.6%
Extinguishing Media: Water fog recommended; CO2, dry chemical, and universal foam media, as applied by manufacturer's recommendations, can also be used.
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazards: Can react with oxidizing materials.
V. HEALTH HAZARD DATA:
Inhalation: Vapors are irritating to eyes, nose, and respiratory tract. May cause headache, nausea, vomiting, weakness.
Skin Contact: May cause irritation. Wear protective gloves.
Ingestion: See inhalation; can also cause breathing difficulty. Kidney damage may result from ingestion of large quantities of test solution.
Skin absorption: Prolonged or widespread contact with skin may lead to absorption of harmful amounts of material resulting in symptoms as described under ingestion.
Eye Contact: Causes marked irritation.
SPECIAL WARNING: Pregnant women should not use this product; laboratory studies of animal subjects have shown birth defects, delayed fetal development, and increased fetal mortality at air concentrations of 150 to 200 ppm.
VI. EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES:
Eyes Flush liberally with running water. Call a physician.
Skin Immediately remove contaminated clothing. Thoroughly wash affected area with soap and water.
Inhalation Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen and call a physician.
Ingestion Give large quantities of water. Induce vomiting. Call a physician.
VII. REACTIVITY DATA:
Decomposes partially at temperatures above 180oC. Do not combine with concentrated alkali at elevated temperatures.
Hazardous combustion or decomposition products: CO, NHx.
VIII. SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES:
Absorb spill with paper toweling or vermiculite. Once absorbed, evaporate outdoors or incinerate in a chemical burner equipped with an after-burner and scrubber.
Dispose of waste product by high temperature incineration, as approved under appropriate federal, state, and local legislation. Do not discharge without prior written approval from the appropriate health and environmental authorities.
IX. SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
NOT FOR USE AS A CONSUMER PRODUCT. FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY.
Keep this product away from heat and flame. Always use with adequate ventilation. Do not allow fluid to contact skin; wear gloves.
WARNING TO PREGNANT WOMEN: Do not use ACCU DYNE TEST™ marker pens unless exposure is extremely low. Even small amounts, if repeatedly inhaled, ingested, or absorbed through skin, may cause fetal malformations.
X. Disposal of Test Markers and Spent Samples
Spent material samples must be handled with care: Disposal of these contaminated materials also presents exposure hazards. We suggest you allocate one trash container exclusively for dyne test waste; use an inner liner, keep it securely covered, and prominently label the lid "DO NOT HANDLE THIS WASTE WITHOUT PROTECTIVE GLOVES. AVOID SKIN CONTACT."
Outdated test markers should be dispositioned through your contracted waste handling firm, who can use this MSDS to properly classify and handle them.
