SkinMaterial is regarded as beneficial to the skin, and is not a concern. In the case of some extremely sensitive individuals who may develop an irritation, thoroughly wash skin with soap and water and discontinue use.
Eye contactIf material is splashed into eyes, flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, ensuring eye lids are held open. Immediately see a doctor.
First Aid FacilitiesEye wash station and normal washroom facilities.
Advice to DoctorTreat symptomatically. Material is a concentrated alcoholic liquid.
Other InformationM

 5. Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing mediaUse dry chemical, carbon dioxide or foam.
Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
Hazards from Combustion ProductsCarbon dioxide, water vapour. Incomplete combustion may generate carbon monoxide.
Special Protective Equipment for fire fightersSelf-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) required for fire-fighting personnel. If possible to do so safely, shut off fuel to fire. Use water spray to spray to cool fire-exposed surfaces and to protect personnel. Avoid spreading burning liquid with water used for cooling fire exposed containers when using water spray, boil-over may occur when the product temperature reaches the boiling point of water.
Specific MethodsM
Specific hazards arising from the chemicalFlammable liquid, flash point 20 °C. Vapour/air mixture may be flammable or explosive. Avoid all sources of ignition, heat and naked flames. Ethanol flames may not be readily visible. Contact with oxidising agents may cause fire. Contact with alkali metals or aluminium may generate hydrogen, a flammable gas. Heat of reaction may be sufficient to cause fire.
Hazchem Code3[Y]E
Decomposition Temp.M
Precautions in connection with FireM
Other InformationVapours from this product may travel or be moved by air currents and be ignited by pilot lights, other flames, smoking, sparks, heaters, electrical equipment, static discharge or other ignition sources at locations distant from the point of handling.

 6. Accidental release measures

Emergency ProceduresKeep unnecessary people away; Isolate hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind; Keep out of low areas. Do not walk or touch spilt material unless wearing personal protection as outlined under MSDS.
Spills & DisposalShut off ignition sources, no flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Water spray may reduce vapour; but it may not prevent ignition in closed spaces.
Take up with sand, dirt or vermiculite. DO NOT use sawdust. Use non-sparking tools or HEPA vacuum system. Place into labeled drum(s) for later disposal.
Notify Emergency Services (Police or Fire Brigade). Tell them exact location, nature, hazards, quantities, type of vehicle and any other information that would be helpful. Contain spill. Remove all ignition sources and safely stop flow of spill. Bund area.
Trained personnel should wear Personal Protective equipment as highlighted in this MSDS. Blanket the spill with foam or use water fog to disperse vapour clouds. Consult an expert regarding disposal of this product.

 7. Handling and storage

Precautions for Safe HandlingM
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilitiesStore in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from sources of heat or ignition, strong alkalis, acids, combustibles and oxidizing agents. All equipment must be earthed. Store in original packages as approved by manufacturer. For further information please refer to the Engineering Controls of this MSDS.
Storage RegulationsM

 8. Exposure controls/personal protection

Occupational exposure limit values     Name STEL (mgm3) STEL (ppm) TWA (mgm3) TWA (ppm) FootNote
Ethanol1000ACGIH TWA
Isopropyl alcohol983400
Biological Limit ValuesM
Appropriate engineering controlsHighly flammable liquid. Maintain adequate ventilation at all times. Prevent accumulation of vapours in hollows or sumps. Eliminate any sources of ignition. Elevated temperature or mechanical action may form vapours, mists or fumes which may require local exhaust ventilation systems.
Respiratory ProtectionM
Eye ProtectionM
Hand ProtectionM
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid breathing the vapour. Avoid contact with the eyes. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
PVC or rubber apron
PVC or rubber gloves
Chemical goggles or faceshield
Select and use respirators in accordance with AS/NZS 1715/1716. When gases/vapours exceed the exposure standards then the use of a half-face respirator with organic vapour cartridge is recommended. For high concentration use an atmosphere-supplied, positive pressure demand self-contained or airline breathing apparatus, complying with the requirements of AS/NZS 1715 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.
