SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
INHALATION:
Remove from exposure area to fresh air immediately. Perform artificial respiration if necessary. Keep person warm and at rest. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Get medical attention immediately. Qualified medical personnel should consider administering oxygen.

SKIN CONTACT:
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash affected area with soap or mild detergent and large amounts of water until no evidence of chemical remains (at least 15-20 minutes). Get medical attention immediately.

EYE CONTACT:
Wash eyes immediately with large amounts of water or normal saline solution, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids until no evidence of chemical remains (approximately 15-20 minutes). Get medical attention immediately.

INGESTION:
If the person is conscious and not convulsing, induce vomiting by giving ipecac followed by water. If vomiting occurs, keep head down to prevent aspiration. Repeat in 20 minutes if not effective initially. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Get medical attention if needed.

NOTE TO PHYSICIAN:
No specific antidote. Treat symptomatically and supportively.
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD:
Fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame. Vapor-air mixtures are explosive.

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:
Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray, or alcohol-resistant foam. For larger fires, use water spray, fog, or alcohol-resistant foam (1993 Emergency Response Guidebook, RSPA 5800.6).

FIREFIGHTING:
Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk. Apply cooling water to sides of containers that are exposed to flames until well after fire is out. Isolate for mile in all directions if tank, rail car, or tank truck is involved in fire (1993 Emergency Response Guidebook, RSPA P 5800.6 Guide Page 26). Cool containers with flooding amounts of water, apply from as far a distance as possible. Avoid breathing vapors, keep upwind. Water may be ineffective (NFPA 325, Fire Hazard Properties of Flammable Liquids, Gases, and Volatile Soilds, 1994).

LOWER FLAMMABLE LIMIT (LFL): 4.0%

UPPER FLAMMABLE LIMIT (UFL): 24.0%

AUTOIGNITION: No data available.

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS:
Thermal decomposition products may include toxic and hazardous oxides of phosphorus and carbon.

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

OCCUPATIONAL SPILL:
Stop leak if you can do it without risk. For small spills, take up with sand or other absorbent material and place into clean, dry containers for later disposal. Keep non-essential people away. Isolate hazard area and deny entry.

SOIL SPILL:
Dig a pit, pond, lagoon or holding area to contain liquid or solid material. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain.

WATER SPILL:
Add suitable agent to neutralize spilled material to pH 7.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Observe all federal, state, and local regulations when storing this liquid. Store in a tightly closed container which meets the bonding and grounding guidelines specified in NFPA 77-1983. Store away from incompatible substances. Store in a cool, dry, ventilated area.

SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
EXPOSURE LIMITS:
No occupational exposure limits established by OSHA/ACGIH/NIOSH.

VENTILATION:
Process enclosure recommended to meet published exposure limits.

EYE PROTECTION:
Employee must wear safety glasses with splash shields or safety goggles to prevent contact with this liquid.
