Name of Ingredient Concentration Warning Symbol risk phrases
Isopropanol Alcohol 70% -- irritant R37
D.I. Water remainder -- N/A
-Odour: Slight fragrence
-Appearance: Colourless liquid
-Contact with skin: Prolonged skin contact will result in defatting of the skin, irritation, and possible dermatitus.
-Inhalation: Irritating to eyes and respiratory system (836/37. May cause dizziness, confusion, headache or stupor).
First aid measures
Contact with skin
-wash the affected area with plenty of soap and water.
-afterwards, a suitable moisturising skin cream can be applied.
Contact with eyes
-If material has got into eyes, wash out immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
-Seek medical attention if any irritation persists.
-Give patient plenty of water to drink. NEVER MAKE AN UNCONCIOUS PERSON VOMIT OR DRINK FLUIDS. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING.
-Seek medical attention immediately.
Inhalation and General
-Remove the patient from source of exposure to fresh air and lie down. Seek medical advice if neccesary. If casualty is unconcious, place into the recovery position. Perform artificial respiration if breathing has stopped. If breathing is difficult, properly trained personnel may assist affected person by administering 100% Oxygen. Keep affected person warm and at rest. Seek prompt medical attention.
Fire fighting measures
-in case of fire use water spray or fog, alcohol resistant foam, dry chemical or C02 (S43), Sand, Dolomite etc.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
-Do not use water jets. Wear breathing apparatus. Use Water to keep fire exposed containers cool and to disperse vapours. Dike for water control. Cool containers exposed to flames with water until well after the fire is out. Move container from the fire area if it can be done without risk. Use water spray to reduce vapours. For large scale fires in cargo areas, use unmanned hose holder or monitor nozzles if possible. If not, withdraw and let fire bum out. If risk of water pollution occurs, notify appropriate authorities.
Accidental release measures
-Shut off all ignition sources. Avoid sparks, flames, heat and smoking. Ventilate.
Clean up procedures
-Provide ventilation and confine spill. Do not allow runoff to sewer. Absorb spillage in a suitable inert material such as vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into appropriate container. Avoid contact with skin or inhalation of spillage, dust or vapour. Clean up personnel should use respiratory and liquid contact safety protection clothing.
Handling and Storage
-Keep away from sources of ignition. Avoid spilling, skin and eye contact. Ventilate well, avoid breathing vapours. Use approved respirator if air contamination is above accepted level. Wear full protective clothing for aged exposure
and/or high concentrations.
-Low risk flammability/combustibility-keep away from oxidizers, heat and Names. Isolate from other materials. Keep in a cool, dry, ventilated stage and dosed containers. Ground container and transfer equipment to eliminate static sparks risk.
Exposure Qntrols and Personnel Protection
Normal good room ventilation should be sufficient. Gloves and eye protection are recommended for prolonged or repeated exposure.
-provide adequate general and local exhaust ventilation. Respirators
-No specific recommendation made, but respiratory protection must be used if the general
level exceeds the Occupational Exposure Level (OEL). Protective Gloves
-Use protective Gloves. Chloroprene, Nitrile or Butyl Rubber Industrial grade Gloves. Eye protection
-Wear approved safety goggles. Full face shield protecttion preferred. Other Protection
-Wear appropriate clothing to prevent any possibility of liquid contact and repeated or prolonged vapour contact.
Hygenic Work routines
-DO NOT SMOKE IN WORK AREA. Wash at the end of each work period and before food consumption, smoking or using the toilet. Remove any clothing that becomes
contaminated immediately. Do not eat or drink whilst working with this material.
Physical and Chemical Properties

Stability and Reactivity
-Avoid: heat, sparks, moisture and flames.
Materials to avoid
-Bases, Alkalies (Inorganic), Strong Oxidizing agents, Strong Reducing agents
Hazardous Decomposition products
-Material does not decompose up to the specified boiling point. Thereafter in case of fire, material can create Vapours/gases/Fumes of: Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (C02).
-ingestion: No data is available for oral toxicity. The values of the ingredients are higher than LD50 (oral rat) : 2000mg/kg.
-Repeated/prolonged contact causes degreasing, irritation and possible dermatitus. Eye Contact
-Initial eye contact will cause chronic eye irritation. Inhalation -Higher concentrations can cause irritation of the respiratory system, nausea and dizziness.
-Dissolves in water. Product remaining on surface evaporates within one day. Larger volumes may
penetrate soil layer and could contaminate groundwater. Bio-Accumulation
Does not significantly bio-accumulate. Degradability
-Material is readily bio-degradable meeting the 10 day window crriterion. Oxidizes rapidly by photochemical reactions in air. This together with its very high flash point means it can be treated as a very
low VOC potential material. Integrated environmental half-life is estimated to be 1-< 10 days.
Acute Fish Toxicity
-Practically non toxic. However best practice states material must not be drained.
Disposal methods UK
-Dipose of in accordance with Local Authority requirements. EEC waste listing class according to (94/3/EG)
-Disposal No. 140303 (Solvents/Solvent blends not containing Halogenated material) Suggested disposal/recovery meths
Filtration waste should be collected and disposed of by licensed Chemical waste removal Contractors.
Specification of minor waste content will be mostly that of the production materials for which the cleaning material was used. To advise the disposal contractor therefore, refer to the production material data source.
