|INGREDIENT NAME||CAS NO.
|1,1,1 - Trichlorethane||71 - 55 - 6||Xn||20||>50|
|Carbon Dioxide||124 - 38 - 9||None||None||1 - 5|
3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION.
|Eye contact:||Irritating to eyes.|
|Skin contact:||Slight skin irritant. Prolonged or repeated contact can cause dermatitis.|
|Inhalation:||High levels of vapour / mist may cause dizziness. Can cause irritation of the respiratory tract.|
|Ingestion:||Accidental ingestion is an unlikely event.|
4. FIRST AID MEASURES.
|Eye contact:||Contact lenses should be removed. Irrigate copiously with clean, fresh water for at least 10 minutes, holding the eyelids apart, and seek medical advice.|
|Skin contact:||Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water or use a proprietary skin cleaner. Do NOT use solvents or thinners. If in doubt, seek medical advice.|
|Inhalation:||Remove to fresh air, keep the patient warm and at rest. If breathing is irregular or has stopped, administer artificial respiration. Give nothing by mouth. If unconscious, place in the recovery position and seek medical advice.|
|Ingestion:||If accidentally swallowed, obtain immediate medical attention. Keep at rest. Do NOT induce vomiting.|
5. FIRE - FIGHTING MEASURES.
|Extinguishing media:||Alcohol resistant foam; CO2; powder; water spray / mist|
|Do not use:||Water jet.|
|Special fire fighting procedures:||Fire exposed container should be sprayed with water to lessen risk of explosion.|
|Unusual fire and explosion hazards:||Thermal degradation will cause evolution of Hydrogen Chloride with small amounts of phosgene and chlorine. All these gases are toxic. Phosgene is extremely toxic.|
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES.
|Procedures for leaks or spillage:||Exclude sources of ignition and ventilate the area. Exclude non - essential personnel.. Avoid breathing vapours. Refer to protective measures listed in Section 7 & 8. Contain and collect spillage's with non - combustible absorbent materials, e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth and place in a suitable container for disposal in accordance with waste regulations (see Section 13). Do not allow to enter drains or water courses. Clean preferably with detergent; avoid the use of solvents if the product enters drains or sewers, the local water company should be contacted immediately; in the case of contamination of streams, rivers or lakes, the National Rivers Authority.|
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE.
|Handling:||Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. They may
form explosive mixtures with air. Prevent the creation of flammable or
explosive concentrations of vapour in air and avoid vapour concentrations
higher than the occupational exposure limits.
Use only in areas from which all sources of heat, sparks and open flame have been excluded. Avoid skin and eye contact. Avoid inhalation of vapour and spray mist. Smoking eating and drinking should be prohibited in areas of use and storage.
|Storage:||Store below 50 Deg.C in a dry, well ventilated place away from sources of heat, ignition and direct sunlight. No smoking. Observe the label precautions. Store separately from strong oxidising agents and strongly alkaline and strongly acidic materials.|
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION.
|INGREDIENT NAME||OES/MEL||8hr TWA||15min STEL|
|1,1,1 - Trichloroethane||MEL||350ppm||450ppm|
|Engineering measures:||Provide adequate ventilation to ensure the airborne concentration of substances to which an OES/MEL has been assigned is below that OES/MEL (Occupational Exposure Standard/ Maximum Exposure Limit).|
|Respiratory protection:||Air - fed respiratory equipment should be worn when this product is sprayed if the exposure of the sprayer or other people nearby cannot be controlled to below the occupational exposure limit and engineering controls and measures cannot reasonably be improved.|
|Hand protection:||When skin exposure may occur, advice may be sought from the glove suppliers on appropriate types. Barrier creams may help to protect exposed areas of the skin but are not substitutes for full physical protection. They should not be applied once exposure has occurred.|
|Eye protection:||Eye protection designed to protect against liquid splashes should be worn.|
|Skin protection:||Cotton or cotton /synthetic overalls are normally suitable. Grossly contaminated clothing should be removed and the skin washed with soap and water or a proprietary skin cleaner.|
9. PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES.
|Boiling point/boiling range:||74 Deg.C|

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY.
|Conditions to avoid:||Avoid naked flames, red hot surfaces, other high temp. sources that may induce thermal decomposition.|
|Incompatibility ( Materials to avoid):||Avoid prolonged contact with, or storage in, Aluminium or its alloys. Aluminium and Zinc powders should be avoided where possible. Prolonged contact with water may lead to hydrolysis producing corrosive acid.|
|Hazardous decomposition products:||Hydrogen chloride, Phosgene, Chlorine.|
11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION.

|1,1,1 - Trichloroethane||10g/Kg (Rat)|
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION.
There is no data available on the product itself. The product should not be allowed to enter drains or water courses or be deposited where it can affect ground or surface waters. The Air Pollution Control requirements of regulations made under the Environmental Protection Act may apply to the use of this product.
1,1,1 - Trichloroethane is relatively stable in the environment. Biodegradation is expected under anaerobic conditions. Its atmospheric lifetime is reported to be 6 - 6 .5 years, and it has a stratospheric ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0. 1 - 0.16 relative to CFC11 and CFC12 (ODP = 1). It is slightly toxic to fish and no appreciable bioconcentration is expected.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS.
Do not allow into drains or water courses or dispose of where ground or surface waters may be affected. Wastes, including emptied containers, are controlled wastes and should be disposed of in accordance with regulations made under the Control of Pollution Act. Using the information provided in this data sheet, advice should be obtained from the Waste Regulation Authority whether the special waste regulations apply. 1
