OSHA FLAMMABILITY CLASS:..............IIIB

 

FLASHPOINT:  ..............................................None

 

LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT: ....................Not applicable

 

UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT:  ......................Not applicable

 

GENERAL HAZARD:  Toxic gases will form upon combustion.  Closed containers may explode when exposed to extreme heat. Vapours are heavier than air and may travel a considerable distance.

 

FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT:  Respiratory and eye protection required for firefighting personnel.  Full protective equipment and a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) should be used in all indoor fires and any large outdoor fires.

 

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, smoke and fumes, hydrocarbon fragments.

 

 

 SECTION 6 – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES (SPILLS OR LEAKS)

 

 

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:  Isolate the danger area and keep out unauthorized personnel.  Stop spill if it can be done with minimal risk.  Wear appropriate protective equipment including respiratory protection as conditions warrant (see section 8). Prevent additional discharge of material.   Notify the appropriate authorities immediately.   Contain spilled liquid with sand, earth or other non-combustible inert absorbent material.  Prevent run-off from entering storm sewers, ditches or waterways. Transfer absorbed waste material into properly identified drums.  Treat waste material with s ame precautions as the adhesive.

 

Do not use solvent or flammable liquid to help clean up an accidental release. Release to the environment may be reportable under environmental regulations.

 

 

 SECTION 7 – HANDLING AND STORAGE

 

 

HANDLING:   Do not enter confined spaces such as tanks without following proper entry procedures as described in OSHA regulations at 29 CFR 1910.146.   Do not breathe vapors.  The use of respiratory protection is recommended when airborne concentrations of vapour exceed exposure guidelines.  Wash thoroughly after handling.  Do not wear contaminated clothing or shoes.   Wear appropriate protective gloves and clothing to prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact.   Avoid contact with eyes.

 

STORAGE:   Keep containers tightly closed.  Use and store this material in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from heat, direct sunlight, hot metal surfaces, and all sources of ignition.  Store only in approved containers.  Protect containers against physical damage.  Indoor storage should meet OSHA standards and appropriate fire codes.

 

EMPTY CONTAINERS:   May contain liquid and vapor residue and may be dangerous.  Do not pressurize, cut weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose such containers to heat, flame, sparks, or other sources of ignition.   “Empty” drums should be completely drained, properly bunged, and promptly shipped to the supplier or a drum reconditioner.  All containers should be disposed of in accordance with governmental regulations.

 

Wash with soap and water before eating, drinking, smoking or using toilet facilities. Consult NFPA and OSHA codes.

 

SECTION 8 – EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION

 

 

RESPIRATORY   PROTECTION:      Specific   respiratory   protection   is not  necessary   when  the  adhesive   is  used  as recommended.    If  in  doubt,  seek the advice  of an industrial  hygienist  or safety  professional  for appropriate  respiratory equipment.

 

SKIN PROTECTION:   The use of gloves impermeable to the specific material handled is advised to prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact.  Where splashing is likely to occur, aprons impermeable to the specific material may be worn.  Refer to the glove and protective clothing manufacturer’s selection guide for appropriate material.

 

EYE PROTECTION:  Approved chemical splash goggles should be worn to safeguard against potential eye contact, irritation or injury .  Where splashing is likely to occur, hard hats and face shields may be used to provide additional protection.  Eye wash facilities should be available in the work area.

 

ENGINEERING  CONTROLS:   The use of local exhaust ventilation  is recommended.   Provide mechanical  ventilation  of confined spaces.
