4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting.
If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration.
Observe the patient carefully.
Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness; i.e. becoming unconscious.
Give water to rinse out mouth, then provide liquid slowly and as much as casualty can comfortably drink.
Seek medical advice.
Inhalation
If fumes, aerosols or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area. Other measures are usually unnecessary. If symptoms develop immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. Seek immediate medical attention, keep person warm and quiet. If person is not breathing begin artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult , administer oxygen.
Skin Contact
Immediate first aid is not likely to be required, however this material can be removed with water.
Wash heavily contaminated clothing before reuse.
Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available).
Seek medical attention in event of irritation.
Eye Contact
This material can be removed with water.
Wash out immediately with water if exposed.
If irritation continues, seek medical attention.
Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.
Other Information
Treat symptomatically.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Foam, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, BCF (where regulations permit). Do not use water jet as extinguisher as this will spread fire.
HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard.
Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves.
Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water course.
Use water delivered as a fine spray to control fire and cool adjacent area.

Avoid contamination with oxidising agents i.e. nitrates, oxidising acids, chlorine bleaches, pool chlorine etc. as ignition
may result. Fire fighters and others exposed to products of combustion should wear self contained breathing apparatus. Equipment should be thoroughly decontaminated after use.

Fire/Explosion Hazard: Combustible.
Slight fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame.
Heating may cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers.
On combustion, may emit irritating/ toxic fumes
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For personal protection see section 8.
Environmental precautions
Contain large spills with dikes and transfer the material to appropriate containers for reclamation or disposal. Absorb remaining or small spills with an inert material and then place in a chemical waste container.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Minor Spills:
Remove all ignition sources.
Clean up all spills immediately. Absorb liquid on vermiculite, floor absorbent or other absorbent material.
Avoid breathing vapours and contact with skin and eyes.

Storage incompatibility: Avoid contamination of water, foodstuffs, feed or seed. Avoid reaction with oxidising agents.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
Engineering controls are used to remove a hazard or place a barrier between the worker and the hazard. Well-designed engineering controls can be highly effective in protecting workers and will typically be independent of worker interactions to provide this high level of protection.
The basic types of engineering controls are:
Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk.
Enclosure and/or isolation of emission source which keeps a selected hazard "physically" away from the worker and ventilation that strategically "adds" and "removes" air in the work environment.
Provide sufficient mechanical ( general and/ or local exhaust) ventilation to maintain exposure below TVL(s).
Provide natural or mechanical ventilation to minimise exposure at sources of air contamination such as open process equipment.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
This product does not contain significant eye irritation or toxicity requiring special protection.
Use good industrial practice to avoid eye contact.
Safety glasses with side shields
Chemical goggles.
Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lenses or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience.
Eyewash unit.
Skin protection
Wear general protective gloves, eg. light weight rubber gloves.
The selection of suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality which vary
from manufacturer to manufacturer. Where the chemical is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the
glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.
The exact break through time for substances has to be obtained from the manufacturer of the protective gloves and.has
to be observed when making a final choice.
Personal hygiene is a key element of effective hand care.
Body protection
To prevent repeated or prolong skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
Overalls.
Barrier cream.
Respiratory protection
Avoid breathing vapour or mist.
Type A Filter of sufficient capacity. (AS/NZS 1716 & 1715, EN 143:2000 & 149:2001, ANSI Z88 or national equivalent).
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respiratory protection equipment when airborne exposure is excessive. Consult respirator manufacture to determine appropriate type equipment for given application. Observe respirator use limitations specified by NIOSH/MSHA or the manufacturer. Respiratory protection programs must comply with 29 CFR 1910.134

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Acute effects
No further relevant information available.
Eye contact
Although the liquid is not thought to be an irritant (as classified by EC Directives), direct contact with the eye may produce transient discomfort characterised by tearing or conjunctival redness (as with windburn)
Skin contact
The liquid may be able to be mixed with fats or oils and may degrease the skin, producing a skin reaction described as non-allergic contact dermatitis. The material is unlikely to produce an irritant dermatitis as described in EC Directives
Ingestion
The material has NOT been classified by EC Directives or other classification systems as "harmful by ingestion". This is because of the lack of corroborating animal or human evidence.
Inhalation
The material is not thought to produce adverse health effects or irritation of the respiratory tract (as classified by EC Directives using animal models). Nevertheless, good hygiene practice requires that exposure be kept to a minimum and that suitable control measures be used in an occupational setting
Toxicity and irritation
Long-term exposure to the product is not thought to produce chronic effects adverse to the health (as classified by EC Directives using animal models); nevertheless exposure by all routes should be minimised as a matter of course.

TOXICITYIRRITATION / IRRITATION

Dermal (rabbit) LD50: >34600 mg/kg / Eye (rabbit) : Not irritating

Oral (rat) LD50: >34600 mg/kg



1,3-BIS(3-PHENOXYPHENOXY)BENZENE

No deaths and no signs of toxicity were observed in animals exposed to 47 mg/l, the highest atmospheric concentration achievable by heating the material to 329 C in this study.) In a controlled skin contact study, no skin irritation (primary or cumulative) or skin allergy was observed in humans following repeated exposures to a similar poly phenyl ether formulation similar material. Increases in liver weight and liver/body weight ratios with accompanying increase in liver cell size, considered to be related in increased liver metabolic activity and increases in adrenal weight were noted in rats following repeated skin exposure (4-weeks) to a second polyphenyl ether formulation. This same formulation produced no genetic changes in standard tests using animal or bacterial cells. *Santolube SDS
