Hazard Class or Division:
3 (FLAMMABLE LIQUID)
Highly Flammable, clear,
colorless, watery, volatile liquid. Sweet, strong, pleasant, benzene-, or model
glue-like odor. Only a small amount will dissolve; the rest floats on water.
Vapors are heavier than air; will collect in low areas.
Solvent for metal coatings, adhesives, paint
removers, fats, gums, oils, bitumens, resins, lacquers, waxes; degreasing of
metals; component of industrial cleaning compounds; gasoline additive.

• Chemical protective clothing is recommended
because vapor and liquid can be dermally absorbed and may contribute to
systemic toxicity. Irritates the eyes and respiratory tract. Exposure could
cause central nervous system depression. Exposure at high levels may result in
cardiac dysrhythmia, unconsciousness, and death. Chronic toluene exposures at
<200 ppm have been associated with headache, fatigue, and nausea. Workers
repeatedly exposed to 200 to 500 ppm have reported loss of coordination, memory
loss, and loss of appetite. Some workers have developed reversible disorders of
the optic nerves after chronic exposure sin the workplace. May affect the
central nervous system, resulting in decreased learning ability and
psychological disorders. Chronic exposure due to solvent abuse can result in
permanent neuropsychiatric effects. Disorders of the muscles, cardiovascular
effects, renal tubular damage, and sudden death have occurred in chronic
abusers of toluene (e.g., glue sniffers). Chronic skin exposure may cause
dermatitis. Blood effects and anemia have been reported; may be due to
contamination by benzene. Based on animal tests, this chemical may be a
reproductive toxin with developmental consequences.

some plastics, rubber, and coatings. Flow or agitation of substance may
generate electrostatic charges due to low conductivity.
This material is a
significant ire hazard at room temperature. Vapors may travel long distances to
ignition sources and flash back. Vapors in confined areas or containers may
explode in fire. If material or contaminated runoff enters waterways, notify
downstream users of potentially contaminated water.

Call emergency medical care. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not
breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Remove and isolate
contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately
flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 20 minutes. Wash skin with
soap and water. Keep victim warm and quiet. Effects of exposure (inhalation,
