Percent: 97 - 100%
4. First Aid Measures
Always seek medical attention after first aid measures are provided.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact: Wipe off excess material from skin then immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.
5. Fire Fighting Measures
Flammability of the Product: Combustible at high temperature. Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back.
Auto-Ignition Temperature: 454C.
Flash Points: 96C Closed Cup.
Flammable Limits: Not available.
Products of Combustion: Fumes, Carbon dioxide & Carbon Monoxide.
Fire: Methyl Salicylate is flammable on heating.
Explosion: Expslosive on heating.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Use means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire. Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. At high temperatures or when moistened under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes. On decomposition it may emit carbon monoxide. Containers may explode on heating
6. Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill: Absorb with an inert material and put the spilled material in an appropriate waste disposal.
Large Spill: Avoid touching the spilled material. Do not let the product enter drains. Avoid breathing vapours, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers. Flush with plenty of water to clean spillage area. Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements. Do not use combustible materials such as sawdust. Provide ventilation.
7. Handling and Storage
Do not breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. If you feel unwell, seek medical attention.
Keep Methyl Salicylate in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Keep away from heat, sun light and oxidizing agents.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits: Not Specified.
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
