 6. Accidental Release Measures

Contain and collect, using a suitable absorbent if needed (sand, earth or vermiculite). Flush residuals to drain with water for normal biological water treatment. Place collected material into suitable containers for disposal. Can usually be disposed of my approved metered release to WWTP or other approved disposal. Observe local, federal and state disposal regulations. Several washes and/or the use of detergents may be necessary to completely clean any spills.

 7. Handling and Storage

 Handle as an irritant. Do not get into eyes. Avoid prolonged/repeated skin contact. Do not inhale vapors/mists. Do not ingest. Store away from sources of ignition. Spilled product creates very slippery conditions, especially in contact with water. Avoid freezing which may cause separation and increases in viscosity. Do not store above 85 deg. F for long periods of time. Several washes and/or the use of detergents may be necessary to completely clean any spills

 8. Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection

  • Ventilation System: Good general ventilation is advisable. Local exhaust desired.
  • Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): None required for normal use and processes. if needed, use respirator to filter out mists/vapors.
  • Skin Protection: Long sleeved clothing, impervious rubber or neoprene gloves and protective apron.
  • Eye Protection: Safety glasses or goggles
  • Other Control Measures: Minimize exposure in accordance with good hygiene practice. Avoid handling which would create large amounts of mists/vapors. Exxon Medical Research recommended inhalation TLV for CAS 64742-47-8 of 200 ppm.

 13. Disposal Considerations

 RCRA Hazard Class (if discarded): Neat, unused product is not considered a hazardous waste, according to RCRA regulations 40 CFR 261. . For proper disposal of used materials, an assessment must be completed to determine the proper waste management options permissible under applicable rules, regulations and/or laws governing client's location. Use until less than 1 inch remains in the container, triple rinse with clean water, and pour rinse water to sewer. Then remove or deface product label to avoid confusion if pail or drum is later refilled. Clean, empty containers should be recycled or disposed of through an approved waste management facility.
