Description of first aid measures
In case of accident or if you feel unwell seek medical advice (show label or SDS where possible).
Provide fresh air.
After contact with the skin:
Wash with plenty of water or water and soap. In the event of a visible skin change or other complaints, seek medical advice (show
label or SDS where possible).
After contact with the eyes:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Seek medical advice in case of continuous irritation.
Give several small portions of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Any relevant information can be found in other parts of this section.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Suitable extinguishing media:
water mist , extinguishing powder , alcohol-resistant foam , carbon dioxide , sand .
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
water spray , water jet .
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazardous decomposition products: alcohols . Do not allow extinguishing water to enter sewerage, the soil or inshore waters.
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for fire fighting:
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air.
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear personal protection equipment (see section Exposure controls/personal protection). Keep unprotected persons away. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.Avoid inhaling mists and vapours. If material is released indicate risk of slipping.
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil. Contain any fluid that runs out using suitable material
(e.g. earth). Retain contaminated water/extinguishing water. Dispose of in prescribed marked containers.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Do not flush away with water. For small amounts: Absorb with a liquid binding material such as diatomaceous earth and dispose
of according to local/state/federal regulations. Contain larger amounts and pump up into suitable containers. Clean any slippery
coating that remains using a detergent / soap solution or another biodegradable cleaner. Exhaust vapours.
Eliminate all sources of ignition.
Reference to other sections
Relevant information in other sections have to be considered. This applies in particular for information given on personal
protective equipment (section 8) and on disposal (section Disposal considerations).
Precautions for safe handling
Avoid exposure by technical measures or personal protective equipment.
Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from incompatible substances in accordance with section Stability and reactivity. Avoid breathing
dust/vapor/mist/gas/aerosol. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. Spilled substance
increases risk of slipping.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Flammable vapors may accumulate and form explosive mixtures with air in containers, process vessels, including partial, empty
and uncleaned containers and vessels, or other enclosed spaces. Keep away from sources of ignition and do not smoke. Take
precautionary measures against electrostatic charging. Cool endangered containers with water.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Conditions for storage rooms and vessels:
Use seal-tight containers.
Advice for storage of incompatible materials:
Further information for storage:
Protect against moisture. Keep container tightly closed and store in a cool, well ventilated place. Do not carry out refill operations
in storage rooms.
Specific end use(s)
No data are available.
Maximum airborne concentrations at the workplace:
CAS No. Material Type mg/m3 ppm Dust fract. Fibre/m3
64-17-5 Ethanol AGW 960,0 500,0
Ethanol (CAS no. 64-17-5): Refer to Technical Rules for Hazardous Substances "TRGS 900" for more details on the German AGW.
Exposure in the work place limited and controlled
General protection and hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale gases/vapours/aerosols. Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling. Wash hands
at the end of work and before eating. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Keep working clothes separately.
Personal protection equipment:
In case of long or strong exposure: gas mask filter ABEK .
Protective gloves made of butyl rubber . Gloves suitable for up to 60 minutes' use. The selection of appropriate gloves not only
depends on the material, but also on other quality characteristics, and may vary depending on the manufacturer. Please observe
information from your glove supplier in terms of permeability and breakthrough time.
tight fitting protective goggles .
protective clothing, protective goggles/face protection . Clean work clothes regularly. After handling make sure skin is cleansed
Exposure to the environment limited and controlled
Prevent material from entering surface waters and soil. Do not introduce large amounts into purification plants.
Further information for system design and engineering measures
Use only in closed systems. In the event of fill operations, ensure technical measures to minimise exposure.
Reactivity; Chemical stability; Possibility of hazardous reactions
If stored and handled in accordance with standard industrial practices no hazardous reactions are known.
Relevant information can possibly be found in other parts of this section.
Conditions to avoid
Reacts with: water , basic substances and acids . Reaction causes the formation of: ethanol .
Hazardous decomposition products
Under the effect of humidity, water and protic agents: ethanol .
Waste treatment methods
Dispose of according to regulations by incineration in a special waste incinerator. Observe local/state/federal regulations.
Completely discharge containers (no tear drops, no powder rest, scraped carefully). Containers may be recycled or re-used.
Observe local/state/federal regulations. Uncleaned packaging should be treated with the same precautions as the material.
