5.HEALTH HAZARD DATA

Routes of entry : Inhalation, Ingestion, Skin & Eyes Effects of Exposure/ Symptoms : Skin: Gets absorbed. Cause pain, redness, Repeated contact leads to dermatitis. Eyes: Causes pain, redness. Inhalation: Cause headache, dullness, dizziness, unconsciousness. Ingestion: Burning sensation in mouth and stomach.

6.EMERGENCY TREATMENT :

Eye Contact:

Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. WARM water MUST be used. Get medical attention immediately. Skin Contact:

In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention. Serious Skin Contact:

Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate medical attention. Inhalation:

If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention if symptoms appear. Serious Inhalation:

Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to- mouth resuscitation. Seek medical attention. Ingestion:

Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar,

RESPIRATORY Any air-purifying respirator with a full face piece and an organic vapor canister.

GLOVES : Butyl rubber gloves

CLOTHING : hydrocarbon insoluble apron

OTHERS : N/A

Precautions:

HANDLING AND STORAGE :

Keep locked up. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Ground all equipment containing material. Do not ingest. Do not breathe gas/fumes/ vapor/spray. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the label. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from incompatibles such as oxidizing agents, acids.

Store in a segregated and approved area. Keep container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark or flame).

Engineering Controls:

Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of vapors below their respective threshold limit value. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are proximal to the work-station location. Personal Protection:

 

Splash goggles. Lab coat. Vapor respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent. Gloves. Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:

Splash goggles. Full suit. Vapor respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus should be used to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient; consult a specialist

9.EMERGENCY RESPONSE DATA

FIRE

FIRE EXTINGUSHING MEDIA :

For small (incipient) fires, use media such as "alcohol" foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. For large fires, apply water from as far as possible. Use very large quantities (flooding) of water applied as a mist or spray; solid streams of water may be ineffective. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water.

SPECIFIC HAZARDS:

Flash back possible over considerable distance. Container explosion may occur under fire conditions.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters :

Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

EXPOSURE

FIRST AID MEASURES :

Eye Contact:

Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. WARM water MUST be used. Get medical attention immediately. Skin Contact:

In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention. Serious Skin Contact:

Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate medical attention. Inhalation:

If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing,

 

give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention if symptoms appear. Serious Inhalation:

Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as

possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

SPILLS : steps to be taken

Shut off leaks If without risk contain leaking liquid on sand or earth .prevent liquid entering into sewer.

10.ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONS

Suspected Human Carcinogen: Depending on the duration of the exposure, periodic medical check-up recommended. Prolonged exposures (even at low concentration) may cause leukemia. Use of alcoholic drink enhances the poisonous effect. Person with blood disorder should avoid contact with Benzene. High concentration can lead to unconsciousness & death. In industry, inhalation is the primary route of chronic Benzene poisoning. Elimination chiefly through lungs. There is a great individual variation in the signs and symptoms of chronic benzene poisoning.
