|Suitable extinguishing media||Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical, and foam.|
|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|Hazards from Combustion Products||Under fire conditions this product may emit toxic and/or irritating fumes including carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. |
|Special Protective Equipment for fire fighters||Self-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 hazards arising from the chemical||This product is highly flammable. Keep storage tanks, pipelines, fire-exposed surfaces etc cool with water spray. Shut off any leak if safe to do so and remove sources of re-ignition. Vapour/air mixtures may ignite explosively. Flashback along the vapour trail may occur. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Vapours 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.|
|Precautions in connection with Fire||Fire-fighters should wear full protective clothing and self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) operated in positive pressure mode. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool. |
|6. Accidental release measures|
|Spills & Disposal||Wear appropriate personal protective equipment and clothing to avoid exposure. Extinguish or remove all sources of ignition and stop leak if safe to do so. Increase ventilation. Evacuate all unprotected personnel. If possible contain the spill. Place inert non-combustible absorbent material onto spillage. DO NOT use sawdust. Use clean non-sparking tools to collect the material and place into suitable labelled containers. Dispose of waste according to federal, Environmental Protection Authority and state regulations. If the spillage enters the waterways contact the Environmental Protection Authority, or your local Waste Management Authority.|
|Clean-up Methods - Large Spillages||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 Handling||Open containers cautiously as contents may be under pressure. Use only in a well ventilated area. DO NOT store or use in confined spaces. Keep tank covered and containers sealed when not in use. Build up of mists or vapours in the atmosphere must be prevented. Avoid inhalation of vapour and mists, skin or eye contact. Do not use near welding or other ignition sources and avoid sparks. Do NOT pressurise, cut, heat or weld containers as they may contain hazardous residues. Do not smoke. Wear appropriate protection. It is essential that all who come into contact with this material maintain high standards of personal hygiene i.e. Washing hands prior to eating, drinking, smoking or using toilet facilities.|
|Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities||Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from sources of ignition, oxidising agents, foodstuffs, and clothing and out of direct sunlight. Keep containers closed when not in use and securely sealed and protected against physical damage. Inspect regularly for deficiencies such as damage or leaks. Always keep in containers made of the same material as the supply container. Have appropriate fire extinguishers available in and near the storage area. Take precautions against static electricity discharges. Use proper grounding procedures. For information on the design of the storeroom, reference should be made to Australian Standard AS1940 - The storage and handling of flammable and combustible liquids. Reference should also be made to all State and Federal regulations.|
|8. Exposure controls/personal protection|
|Occupational exposure limit values||No exposure standards have been established for this material by the Australian National Occupational Health & Safety Commission (NOHSC). However, the exposure standards for the ingredients are stated below: |
Australian National Occupational Health And Safety Commission (NOHSC) Exposure Standards:
Substance TWA STEL
ppm mg/m³ ppm mg/m³ Notices
Ethanol 1000 1880 - - -
TWA - the Time-Weighted Average airborne concentration over an eight-hour working day, for a five-day working week.
STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) - the average airborne concentration over a 15-minute period, which should not be exceeded at any time during a normal eight-hour workday.
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Appropriate engineering controls||Provide sufficient ventilation to keep airborne levels below the exposure limits. Where vapours or mists are generated, particularly in enclosed areas, and natural ventilation is inadequate, a flameproof exhaust ventilation system is required. Refer to AS 1940 - The storage and handling of flammable and combustible liquids and AS/NZS 2430.3.1:1997 : Classification of hazardous areas - Examples of area classification - General, for further information concerning ventilation requirements.|
|Respiratory Protection||If engineering controls are not effective in controlling airborne exposure then respiratory protective equipment should be used. Type of breathing protection required will vary according to individual circumstances. Expert advice may be required to make this decision. Reference should be made to Australian Standards AS/NZS 1715, Selection, Use and maintenance of Respiratory Protective Devices; and AS/NZS 1716, Respiratory Protective Devices.|
|Eye Protection||Safety glasses with side shields or chemical goggles should be worn. Final choice of appropriate eye/face protection will vary according to individual circumstances. Eye protection devices should conform with Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1337 - Eye Protectors for Industrial Applications.|
|Hand Protection||Where risk of skin contact, wear nitrile or other suitable gloves conforming to AS/NZS 2161: Occupational protective gloves.|
|Body Protection||When large quantities are handled the use of plastic aprons and rubber boots is recommended. Industrial clothing should conform to the specifications detailed in AS/NZS 2919: Industrial clothing. When handling small quantities, normal work clothing provides sufficient protection.|
