HEALTH EFFECTS DATA
Upper Explosion Limit (% by Volume): 12.0
Lower Explosion Limit (% by Volume): 2.0
Autoignition Temperature: 399º Celsius
Flash Point [Method]: 13' Celsius [Tag C.C.]
Hazardous Combustion Products: No Data
Extinguishing Media: Water fog, C02, Foam, Dry Chemical
Special Procedures: Do not use direct water stream as this could
spread the fire. Self Contained Breathing Apparatus should be used when
fighting a fire in a confined area or when exposed to contamination products.
Explosion Data - Sensitivity to impact: No Tests Run
Sensitivity to Static Discharge: No Tests Run
Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazards: Improperly Disposed of Stabilant
soaked combustible materials might be subject to spontaneous combustion.
Heat may build internal pressure in container, leading to rupture of container.
As the material is 80% isopropanol it exhibits all of the health hazards
of isopropanol but to a lesser degree. The lower concentration of the isopropanol
mitigates the defatting and drying effects of the near absolute alcohol's
on the skin although there is still a hazard on eye contact. If the container
of Stabilant 22A is left uncapped for extended periods at normal room temperatures,
the isopropanol will evaporate reducing the hazards somewhat. When applied
to contacts the isopropanol will evaporate leaving the nonvolatile portion
of the material (Stabilant 22) on the surfaces, and reference should be
made to the MSDS for Stabilant 22 as to the potential hazards of that product.
LD50 (oral, rat): 5000 mg/kg
Skin irritation: The material is a mild irritant and may cause defatting
and drying of the skin.
Prolonged Skin Exposure: Prolonged and repeated contact may cause
First Aid on Skin Exposure: Major spills on clothing require removal
of contaminated clothing, then flush area with running water and wash with
soap and water. Small area contact, wash with running water, then soap
and water. Obtain medical advice.
Eye irritation: The vapor is a mild irritant which may cause conjunctivitis
and corneal damage. The liquid is a severe eye irritant which may cause
permanent eye damage.
First Aid on Eye Exposure: Flush eyes with running water for at
least 20 minutes holding eyelids open. Obtain medical attention immediately!
Treat for isopropanol exposure.
Exposure when Inhaled: May cause irritation of the eyes, nose and
throat and of the respiratory tract. Overexposure could cause Central Nervous
System Depression characterized by headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea,
vomiting, abdominal pain and incoordination. Severe overexposure could
lead to coma and possibly death due to respiratory failure. Remove to fresh
air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. Obtain medical attention
First Aid oral ingestion: If victim is alert and not convulsing,
rinse out mouth and give 1/2 to 1 glass of water to dilute material. DO
NOT induce vomiting. If spontaneous vomiting occurs, have victim lean forward
with head down to avoid breathing in of vomitus, rinse mouth and administer
more water--Transport victim to an emergency facility IMMEDIATELY!

of product into lungs, which may result in pulmonary edema.

Can react violently with potassium oxides and potassium. Can ignite in
contact with platinum black catalyst.
ENGINEERING CONTROLS & SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
Biodegradability: No Tests Run - No Data
Fish Toxicity: Harmful to aquatic life at low concentrations. No
quantitative data known.
Bacterial Inhibition in Influent: No Data
Note: Conditions of use, adequacy of engineering or of other
control measures and actual exposure will dictate the need for specific
protective devices at the workplace. The recommendations listed in this
section indicate the type of equipment which will prevent overexposure
to the product.
SPECIAL STORAGE PRECAUTIONS
Ventilation: Where the material is being applied by swab or small
brush, or from a dropper bottle, it is highly unlikely that sufficient
air concentration of the isopropanol could occur under normal ventilation
such that a health hazard could be created. Whenever large volumes of the
material are being used (>250 mL) or whenever the continually exposed surface
area of the material is in excess of 3 Square ft., it is suggested that
local exhaust ventilation be provided.
Respiratory Protection: Where small amounts are being used with
a swab or small brush, or are being dispensed from a dropper bottle, respiratory
protection is not needed under normal ventilation conditions. Where large
volumes of the material (>250 mL) are being used or where large surface
areas are being exposed (e.g. - dipping tanks) the use of a NIOSH/MSHA
approved air purifying respirator equipped with organic vapor cartridges
be used if exposed to concentrations up to 1000 ppm. Use an air supplied
unit if exposed to higher or unknown concentrations. (Such as in bulk handling)
Protective Gloves: Rubber, or Neoprene gloves should be worn when
the handling of circuit boards or connectors requires constant skin contact
with the material.
Eye Protection: Goggles or Face shield when there is a potential
for eye contact.
Footwear: Non slip when handling bulk amounts.
Clothing: Rubber or Neoprene protective clothing when handling bulk
Other: Not required
Bulk Handling: Ground equipment to prevent static discharge accumulation
Observe physical safety procedures commensurate with the size of the container
SPECIAL SHIPPING DESCRIPTION (Under the TDG Act)
Storage Procedures: Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated location
away from strong oxidizers.
