 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
Suitable Extinguishing MediaUse water or extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire.
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsWater vapour, carbon dioxide. Incomplete combustion, after evaporation of water, may generate carbon monoxide.
 
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 & DisposalDisposal of small spillages only. For large spillages liquids should be contained using sand or earth, and both liquids and solids then transferred to salvage containers. Residues should be treated as for small spillages. CAUTION: Before dealing with spillage take necessary protective measures, inform others to keep at a safe distance and, for flammable materials, shut off all possible sources of ignition. CARE! Spillages will be very slippery. If local regulations permit, mop up with plenty of water and run to waste, diluting greatly with running water. Otherwise absorb on inert absorbent, transfer to sealed container and arrange removal by disposals company. Wash site of spillage thoroughly with water. Ventilate area to dispel any residual vapours.
 

 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingM
 
Conditions for Safe StorageStore in a cool, well ventilated place, out of reach of children. Large quantities should be stored in a bunded area. Store in original container. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from naked flames and other sources of ignition. No smoking. Take precautions against static discharge. Prevent vapours from collecting in enclosed spaces. Keep away from oxidising agents. Protect from physical damage. 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
Ethanol1000ACGIH TWA
 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Engineering ControlsAvoid sparks and naked flames. Consider local mechanical exhaust/extraction to keep airborne contamination below TLV.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid contact with the skin and eyes. Avoid breathing the vapour. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
Safety glasses or face shield
Gloves, rubber or plastic
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 this product. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
