3 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION Physical state and appearance Emergency overview
: WARNING! FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOUR. MAY CAUSE EYE IRRITATION AND SKIN IRRITATION.
Routes of entry
: Eye contact. Ingestion. Inhalation. Absorbed through skin.
Potential acute health effects
: Hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant).
: Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant, permeator). Skin
inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling, reddening, or,
: Slightly hazardous in case of ingestion
Potential chronic health
: CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: A5 (Not classifiable for human). By
MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not listed. TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not listed. Ethyl acetate may reduce fertility in males.
Medical conditions aggravated by
: Persons with pre-existing lung, skin, blood, liver or kidney disease
might be at increased risk from ethyl acetate exposure.
Persons undergoing ANTABUSE treatment might experience violent
gastrointestinal distress, flushing or hypotension. Tobacco smoking increases risk of lung disease in workers exposed to ethyl acetate. Persons simultaneously exposed to ethanol or acetaldehyde might be more sensitive. Overexposure/signs/
: Ethyl acetate is a primary irritant. It can affect you if breathed in or by
passing through the skin. Inhalation exposure can cause irritation of eye, nose, throat and upper respiratory tract. It can produce mild Central Nervous System depression, with symptoms such as lightheadedness, dizziness and to pass out. Repeated contact can cause cracking of the skin.
See toxicological information (section 11) 4 FIRST AID MEASURES Eye contact
: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush the eyes
with running water for at least 15 minutes, keep eyelids open. Cold water may be used. DO NOT use eye ointment. Get medical attention.
: In the case of contact, flush the skin with plenty of water. Gently and
thoroughly wash the contaminated skin with running water and non-
abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds. Cervices, creases
and groin. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Wash clothes
before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. If irritation
Hazardous skin contact
: Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover skin with an anti-bacterial
: If inhaled, remove to fresh air and allow victim to rest. Get medical
: If inhaled, remove victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen
tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If breathing is laboured, give oxygen If not breathing apply artificial respiration. Get medical attention.
: DO NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel.
Examine the lips and mouth to ascertain whether the tissues are
damaged, a possible indication that the toxic material was ingested; the
absence of such signs, however, s not conclusive. Loosen tight clothing
such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If not breathing apply artificial
Hazardous ingestion Notes to physician
: Support respiratory and cardiovascular function.
5 FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES Flammability of the product Autoignition temperature Flash points
: CLOSED CUP: -4.4 ºC (24.1ºF). OPEN CUP: 4ºC (39.2ºF). (Cleveland).
Flammable limits Products of combustion
: These products are carbon oxides (CO, CO2)
Fire hazards in presence of
: Flammable in the presence of open flames and sparks, of heat and
various substances Explosion hazards in presence of
: Risk of explosive in the presence of static discharge: Possible.
Risk of explosive in the presence of mechanical impact: Not available. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with the air. Poses a moderate
Ethyl acetate forms potentially explosive reaction with lithium
trtrahydroaluminate. Ignites on contact with tert-butoxide. Forms a violent reaction with chlorosulfonic acid and oleum.
Fire fighting media and
: Flammable liquid, soluble or dispersed in water. Moisture reactive
SMALL FIRE: Obtain advice on use of water. Use DRY chemical
LARGE FIRE: Use alcohol foam, water spray or fog. DO NOT USE
WATER. Cool containing vessels with water jet on order to prevent pressure build-up, autoignition or explosion.
Protective clothing (fire)
: Wear MSHA/NIOSH self-contained respirator or equivalent and full protective gear.
Special remarks on fire hazards
: Vapour may travel considerable distance to source of ignition and flash
back. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out.
Special remarks on explosive
: Vapour explosion hazard indoors, outdoors and in sewers. Vapors may
form explosive mixtures with air. Containers may explode when heated. Most vapours are heavier than air; they will spread along the ground and collect in low confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks).
6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Small spill or leak
: Dilute with water and mop up, or absorb with an inert dry material and
place in an appropriate waste disposal container.
Large spill or leak
: Flammable Liquid. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of Ignition. Stop leak
if without risk. Absorb with DRY earth, sand or other non-combustible material. Do not touch spilled material. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Be careful that the product is not present at a concentration level above TLV. Check TLV on the MSDS and with local authorities.
7 HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling
: Keep locked up. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Ground all equipment containing material. DO NOT ingest. DO NOT breath gas, vapour, fumes or spray. In case of inadequate ventilation, use suitable respiratory equipment. If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the label. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from incompatibles such as oxidizing agents, acids, alkalis, and moisture.
: Flammable materials should be stored in a separately safety storage
cabinet or room. Keep container in a cool, well-ventilated area. A refrigerated room would be preferable for materials with a flash point lower than 37.8ºC (100ºF). Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Ground all equipment containing material. Keep away form heat. Avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark of flame).
8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION Engineering controls
: Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the
airborne concentrations of vapour below their respective threshold limit values. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are proximal to the work-station location.
Personal protection Respiratory
: Vapour and dust respirator. Be sure to use an MSHA/NIOSH approved
respirator equivalent. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
: Splash goggles. Lab coat. Vapor respirator. Butyl gloves.
Personal protection in case of large : Splash goggles. Full suit. Vapor and dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. spills
A self-contained breathing apparatus should be used to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient; consult a specialist BEFORE handling the product.
