Boiling Range (Deg. F): 355-395 Vapor Density: Heavier than air

Evaporation Rate: Slower than Ether

Percent Volatile By Volume: 100 Weight Per Gallon (lbs.): 6.24

 

SECTION 4 - FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA

Flash Point (Deg. F): 125 Lower Explosive Limit:1.0

 

Extinguishing Media: Foam, CO2, dry chemical, water fog. Do not use a direct stream of water. Product will float and can be re-ignited on surface of water.

 

OSHA Flammability Classification: Flammable Liquid, Class III

 

Special Firefighting Procedures: Wear a NIOSH/MSHA approved self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Use water to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

 

Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazards: Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along the ground or be moved by ventilation to ignition sources at locations distant from material handling point. Pressure may build up in containers and create an explosion hazard. Never use welding or cutting torch on or near drum (even empty). Product and residue can ignite explosively.
