Ingredients not precisely identified are proprietary




APPEARANCE & ODOR:                                Amber liquid with                                 slight petroleum odor

BOILING POINT:                                360oF

SPECIFIC GRAVITY:                                .9898 at 20oC

VAPOR PRESSURE:                                .09mm Hg at 38oC

SOLUBILITY IN WATER:                                Partial




FLASH POINT:   151oF  Pensky-Martin

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:   Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, high expansion (proteinic) chemical foam, water spray for large fires.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES:   Full emergency equipment with self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing should be worn by firefighters.  Product may float and can be reignited on water surface.  Vapors are heavier than air and may travel a distance to a source of ignition and flash back.

UNUSUAL FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARDS:  Combustible liquid.  Explosive rupture is possible.  Therefore, use cold water to cool fire exposed containers.



STABILITY:   Stable under normal conditions

INCOMPATIBILITY (MATERIALS TO AVOID):   Heat, flame and contact with strong oxidizing agents.


HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:   By high heat and fire: toxic oxides of carbon and sulfur, hydrocarbons and hydrocarbon derivatives.




GENERAL:   No toxicity information is available on this specific preparation; this health hazard assessment is based on information that is available on the properties of its components.

PRIMARY ROUTE(S) OF ENTRY:   Skin; Inhalation

INHALATION:   Irritation of the upper respiratory tract with central nervous system stimulation possibly followed by depression, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, incoordination, anesthesia, lung congestion, coma and respiratory arrest.

SKIN CONTACT:   Defatting may occur with continued or prolonged contact. Irritation and burning sensation may occur on exposure to liquid or vapor phase..

EYE CONTACT:   Liquid will cause severe burning sensation with temporary irritation and swelling of lids.

INGESTION:   Irritation of mucous membranes of throat, esophagus and stomach which may result in nausea and vomiting, depression may occur if absorbed. Central nervous system depression with extreme overexposure; effects may include anesthesia, coma, respiratory arrest and irregular heart rate.

CARCINOGENICITY: None of the ingredients are listed by NTP, IARC, or regulated by OSHA as a carcinogen.


   Skin:  Wash material off skin with plenty of soap and water.  For severe exposures, get under safety shower after removing clothing, then get medical attention.  For lesser exposure, seek medical attention if irritation develops or persists after the area is washed.  Do not reuse clothing until cleaned.

   Eyes:  Flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes holding eyelids open.  Get medical attention immediately.

   Ingestion:  DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING.  Extreme care must be used to prevent aspiration.  Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.  Get medical attention immediately.  

   Inhalation:  Move to area free of risk to further exposure.  Administer oxygen or artificial respiration as needed.  Get medical attention.




STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED:   Remove all possible ignition sources.  Evacuate and ventilate spill area; dike spill to prevent entry into water system; wear full protective equipment during cleanup.

Major Spill:   Large quantities may be pumped into closed, but not sealed container for disposal.

Minor Spill:  Absorb material with sawdust or other absorbent, shovel into suitable unsealed containers, transport to well-ventilated area (outside).

Clean-up:  Decontaminate floor with decontaminating solution, letting stand for at least 15 minutes.

WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD:   Waste must be disposed of according to federal, state and local environmental control regulations.  Decontaminate containers prior to disposal.  Empty containers should be crushed to prevent reuse.  DO NOT HEAT OR CUT EMPTY CONTAINER WITH ELECTRIC OR GAS TORCH.  Vapors and gases may be toxic.




EYE PROTECTION:   Liquid chemical goggles or full face shield.

SKIN PROTECTION: Chemical resistant gloves recommended.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION:   Because of low vapor pressure, ventilation is usually sufficient to keep vapors below the TLV at room temperatures.  If concentrations exceed the TLV, use MSHA/NIOSH approved positive pressure supplied air respirator to prevent overexposure.

VENTILATION:   Local exhaust should be used to keep airborne concentrations below the TLV.




Store in tightly sealed containers to protect from atmospheric moisture.  Educate and train employees in safe use of product.






TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act) Regulations, 40 CFR 710:   All ingredients are on the TSCA Section 8(b) Inventory.
