Other InformationM
 

 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
Suitable Extinguishing MediaUse extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire.
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsDecomposes on heating emitting oxides of carbon.
 
Special Protective Equipment for fire fightersFire fighters to wear Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) in confined spaces, in oxygen deficient atmospheres or if exposed to products of decomposition. Full protective clothing is also recommended.
 
Specific HazardsThis material is not a flammable or combustible liquid.
 
Precautions in connection with FireM
 
Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
 

 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 
Emergency ProceduresM
 
Spills & DisposalMaterial may be slippery when spilt. Walk cautiously. Ventilate area. Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contact, as outlined under personal protection in this MSDS. Bund area using sand or soil - to prevent run off into drains and waterways. Use absorbent (soil, sand, vermiculite or other inert material). Collect and seal in properly labelled containers for disposal.
 

 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingM
 
Conditions for Safe StorageStore in cool place in original container. Store away from oxidising agents, acids and foodstuffs. Keep containers closed when not in use. Store out of reach of children. Large quantities should be stored in a bunded area. Do not mix with other chemicals. Clean up all spills and splashes promptly; avoid secondary accidents.
 
Storage RegulationsM
 

 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 
National Exposure Standards     Name STEL (mgm3) STEL (ppm) TWA (mgm3) TWA (ppm) FootNote
2-Butoxyethanol12125
 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Engineering ControlsMaintain adequate ventilation at all times. In most circumstances natural ventilation systems are adequate unless the material is heated, reacted or otherwise changed in some type of chemical reaction, then the use of a local exhaust ventilation system is recommended.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentPrevent contact with the eyes. Avoid contact with the skin. Avoid breathing vapours. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
Goggles, face shield or safety glasses
Gloves, rubber or plastic
Plastic apron, sleeves and boots.
Respirators in accordance with AS/NZS 1715/1716. The use of a P1 dust mask (disposable) or with replaceable filters is recommended. Filter capacity and respirator type depends on exposure levels and type of contaminant. If entering spaces where the airborne concentration of a contaminant is unknown then the use of a Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with positive pressure air supply complying with AS/NZS 1715 / 1716, or any other acceptable International Standard is recommended.
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using cleaning chemicals. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
