First-aid measures

EYE CONTACT: Rinse continuously with water for at least 10 minutes.
SKIN CONTACT: Shower immediately and remove contaminated clothing.
INHALATION: Fresh air and rest.
INGESTION: Rinse mouth with water and give small amount of water to drink. NEVER GIVE AN UNCONSCIOUS PATIENT WATER TO DRINK. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
OTHER: For all exposures seek medical advice. Show medical staff substance data sheet or ensure information accompanies patient.

Fire-fighting measures



No danger of violent reaction or explosion
Breathing apparatus for fire only.
Contain.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: CO2, Alcohol resistant foam, Powder and Water fog/spray.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: May emit acrid fumes if burned, use breathing apparatus.
UNUSUAL FIRE & EXPOSURE HAZARDS: See above

Accidental release measures

Recover materials if possible. Also absorb spilled substance in sand or inert substance and remove to a safe place. Prevent material entering drains with absorbent socks and drain protectors. After absorption and recovery, wash away traces with large amounts of water. Any absorbent material used to mop up a spill to be disposed of in a closed metal container.
Protective Equipment to be worn for spill – Chemical splash resistant overalls, Wellingtons or boots, chemical resistant PVC gauntlets and organic vapour respirator.

Handling and storage

HANDLING
Use in well ventilated areas. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Open and handle containers with care. Store in original containers. Avoid accumulation of static charge, especially in high mixing systems (low electrical conductivity see Section 9). Avoid excessive breathing of vapours. See Section 8 for recommended exposure levels. Emergency shower and eyewash should be close by. Electrical equipment to be suitable for electrical apparatus group and temperature class of the material (see Section 9).
STORAGE
Store away from oxidising agents. For IBCs only, store away from sunlight. Suitable storage material – 316 Stainless Steel, avoid contact with iron as this causes pink coloration. Suitable seals - Perfluoroelastomer (Kalrez), suitable gaskets – graphite supported on 316 Stainless steel or asbestos free aramid fibre composite. Storage tanks to be bunded to contain 110% of tank contents, or as local regulations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

VENTILATION This product must not be used in a confined space without good ventilation. However engineering controls should be aimed for to prevent the need for ventilation.
PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT for normal operation,
BREATHING Under normal conditions respiratory protection is not required. If the exposure limit is likely to be exceeded, wear full face chemical respirator with organic vapour cartridge, CEN141. See below for exposure limit.
PROTECTIVE GLOVES Use protective gloves/gauntlets made of PVC.
EYE PROTECTION Wear close fitting goggles or visor when handling, e.g. sampling.
OTHER PROTECTION Wear normal industrial workwear to prevent skin contact.
WORKPLACE EXPOSURE LIMITS
There is no workplace exposure standard set in the UK by the HSE in EH40, nor in Europe nor the USA.
Tennants Fine Chemicals have allocated a Company Exposure Standard (CES), based on Pentyl Acetate.
These are: - 100 ppm/8h 940mg/m3/8h 150 ppm/15min 1425mg/m3/15min

Stability and reactivity

STABILITY TO HEAT: Stable at least up to 180°C
REACTIVITY: Reacts with strong oxidising agents.
REACTION WITH WATER: Slow hydrolysis to Hexanol and Salicylic acid
POLYMERISATION HAZARD: None

Disposal considerations

Waste Product Recycle if possible, but if not, then incineration is recommended since the
material is odiferous.
Packaging Steel drums can be cleaned and re-used if in good condition, or recycle as
scrap metal. Plastic IBC bodies will pick up odour, so re-use will not be
possible. Either clean out, shred and landfill, if permitted or clean,
granulate and recycle the plastic granules.
NOTE
Incineration must be carried out in a suitable high temperature incinerator operated by a registered
disposal company. User must ensure that this complies with all local/national laws.
