DIPHENYLOL PROPANE DIGLYCIDYL ETHER ICSC: 0151
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
ODOURLESS YELLOWISH BROWN VISCOUS LIQUID.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. Reacts with strong oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh); Carcinogen category: 3A; (DFG 2004).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour.

INHALATION RISK:
No indication can be given about the rate in which a harmful concentration in the air is reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the skin. Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Melting point: 8-12C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.17
Solubility in water: see Notes
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 11.7
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): see Notes
Flash point: 79C o.c.
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA

NOTES
Boiling point, solubility in water, vapour pressure, relative density of the vapour/air mixture, and auto-ignition temperature are unknown in the literature. Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
Card has been partly updated in April 2005. See sections Occupational Exposure Limits, EU classification, Emergency Response.
