SECTION IV-First Aid Measures

 

Inhalation:                    Asphyxiation by butane will precede any toxicological effects of the active elements.

                                    Remove the patient to fresh air and treat symptomatically.

Skin Contact:                Not harmful.

Eye Contact:                 NEVER AEROSOLS NEAR EYES/MUCOUS MEMBRANES. Flush with copious quantities of water.

                                    Seek medical advice. Product is classified as irritating to eyes.

Ingestion:                                  Unlikely. May cause nausea and discomfort. Carry out a gastric lavage to reduce discomfort.

                                   The contents would tend to be absorbed by the body with no significant effects,

                                    particularly in these concentration. Treat symptomatically.

                                    Seek medical advice and show the container.

 

 

SECTION V-Firefighting Measures

 

                                    Pressurized aerosols should not be exposed to temperatures exceeding 50. Above this,

                                    containers may explode and the resultant flammable mixture will burn to produce CO2.

                                    Use water to cool undamaged stock only.

                                    Avoid contamination of the water where courses where damaged stock is leaking.

                                    EXTINFUISHING MEDIA; CO2; BCF; dry powder, sand or earth.

                                    For larger fire use foam, water fog or spray, avoiding contamination.

                                    POSITIVE PRESSURE BREATHING APPARATUS SHOULD BE USED.

 

 

SECTION VI-Accidental Release Measures

 

INITIAL SPILLAGE WOULD BE FLAMMABLE.

                                    Keep damaged containers away from sources of ignition and in well ventilated areas.

                                    Contents may cause staining and it should be expected that marks will not be able to be removed.

Environment:               In the concentrations within 1-1000 cans the components

                                    would not present an environmental hazard as most of the product would quickly evaporate,

                                    leaving only the residue.

Cleaning:                      In small quantities any liquid should be absorbed into a suitable media, such as sand and disposed of safely.

                                    The residue should be washed away with soapy water, though staining should be expected.

 

SECTON VII-Handling and Storage

 

Handling:                     Handle carefully. In general handling aerosols should not be considered as hazardous.

Storage:                        Always store aerosols away from sources of heat, including direct sunlight and in dry conditions.

                                    avoid extremes of temperature and moisture. A stable, cool, dry ambient environment is most suitable.

                                    Avoid contamination with other products.

                                    The containers will not last indefinitely even when stored in a cool dry area, they should be inspected

                                    periodically during long-term storage.

                                    Note container warnings.

 

 

SECTION VIII-Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

 

                                    Supplier recommends 600ppm total hydrocarbon based on composition.

                                    As with all aerosols, the products should only be used in well ventilated areas,

                                    but responsible use is not potentially harmful.

                                    Respiratory protection: If ventilation is not possible,

                                    then suitable respiration is essential if there is a risk of solvent vapor concentrations.

                                    Use organic/inorganic vapors filters. Vapors may cause drowsiness or dizziness.

                                    In general the aerosol product is a convenient and safe method of supply.

                                    Only in continuous or repeated usage conditions should personal

                                    protective measures be required exposure controls considered.

 

                                               

SECTION IX-Physical and Chemical Properties

 

As the product is an aerosol, it is an aerosol container with no potential properties, provided the container warnings are observed.

Details apply to the liquid phase of the product only (propellant gas will evaporate immediately):

 

Appearance:                  white

Odor:                           aerosol

PH:                                          6.5~7.5

Boiling point:                >100

Melting point:               <-20

Flash point:                  nominally 0

Autoflammabillty:                     unknown for blend

Explosive properties:       none

Oxidizing properties:       none

Relative density:            0.98kg/m3

Solubility:                     water soluble.

 

 

SECTION X-Stability and Reactivity

 

                                    The container is inherently stable under instructed conditions for a reasonable period of

                                    time (at least 24-25 months).

                                    AVOID extremes of temperature, including direct sunlight and extreme freezing.

                                    Avoid exposure to moisture which may damage container

                                    deterioration and PH, where acidity may damage container integrity.

                                    Avoid sudden impacts, which may damage container integrity.

                                    Avoid contact with water, acids, and high temperatures.

                                   

 

                                    Container corrosion may occur with time and damaged containers should be disposed of

                                    before any danger is evident.

                                    Flammable:  Liquid contents should be considered generally not reactive.

 

 

SECTION XI-Toxicological Information

 

                                    THIS IS DESIGNED FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY.

                                    Essentially, when used in this aerosol form, there are no potential toxic effects.

                                    The data is as follows:

                                    BUTANE/PROPANE    The Occupational Exposure Standard is 600ppm (1430mgm)

                                    Used correctly in aerosol form. All components can be considered to have a low order of

                                    toxicity (LD50 oral rat 00mg/kg, skin 3000mg/kg).

                                    deliberate inhalation may cause severe pulmonary and breathing difficulty,

                                    dizziness, drowsiness (narcosis) and headaches

                                    (but this is unlikely in normal usage) and would constitute abuse.

                                    Skin and eye irritation may result from continued exposure to vapors when

                                    used in areas of poor ventilation. Or when working in close proximity to

                                    the spray for prolonged periods, and suitable steps should to avoid such conditions.

 

 

SECTION X11-Ecological Information

 

                                    This relates to the contents only. See disposal.

                                    The product will evaporate quickly to the air. A coloured liquid, easily absorbed,

                                    will evaporate and leave a solid. The solid will present no

                                    other significant hazards, with no dangerous arising from degradation.

                                    Mobility will be very slow.

                                    Degradation will be relatively slow though ultimately almost complete.

                                    Accumulation is unlikely once physical breakdown commences.

                                    Short and long term effects should not be considered significant.

                                    Very short term damage to aquatic and soil organisms may occur in

                                    large spillage (1000+containers) though this should disperse quickly

                                    (especially if absorbent material is used).

 

SECTION X111-Disposal Considerations

 

                                    The container should be totally discharged and disposed of as hazardous waste.

                                    SEE CONTAINER WARNINGS. I.e. do not puncture or incinerate/burn even after use.

                                    Dried material is non-hazardous.

 

 

SECTION X1V-Transport Information

 

                                    UN NUMBER:        UN1950     IMDG page 2120

                                    HAZARD CLASS: 2.1 For Sea Transport not classified as hazardous for road transport.
