TYPES OF HAZARD / EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Powder, AFFF, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 48C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 48C use a closed system, ventilation, and explosion-proof electrical equipment.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

Inhalation Burning sensation. Shortness of breath. Headache. Drowsiness. Dullness. Nausea. Vomiting.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Dry skin. Redness. Pain. Blisters.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
Eyes Redness. Pain. Blurred vision. Severe deep burns.
Safety goggles or face shield.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
Ingestion Burning sensation. Headache. Dullness. Drowsiness. Nausea. Vomiting.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give plenty of water to drink. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL PACKAGING & LABELLING
Ventilation. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Wash away remainder with plenty of water. Personal protection: self-contained breathing apparatus.

ALLYL GLYCIDYL ETHER ICSC: 0096
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID, WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. The substance may polymerize readily. The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic gases. Reacts violently with strong oxidants, acids and bases.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 1 ppm as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); (ACGIH 2004).
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh); Carcinogen category: 2; (DFG 2004).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and through the skin, and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
Corrosive. The substance is corrosive to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. Inhalation of the vapour may cause lung oedema (see Notes). Acute exposure may cause central nervous system depression. Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. May cause genetic damage in humans. Does cause serious reproductive toxicity in humans.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Boiling point: 154C
Melting point: -100C
Relative density (water = 1): 0.97
Solubility in water, g/100 ml: 14
Vapour pressure, kPa at 25C: 0.63
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 3.9
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): 1.02
Flash point: 48C o.c.
Auto-ignition temperature: see Notes
Explosive limits, vol% in air: see Notes
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA

NOTES
Auto-ignition temperature is unknown in literature. Explosive limits are unknown in literature, although the substance is combustible and has a flash point < 61C. Use of alcoholic beverages enhances the harmful effect. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential. The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient. Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found. Card has been partly updated in October 2005. See sections Occupational Exposure Limits, EU classification, Emergency Response.
