Hazard Information

Chemical Properties
colourless liquid
General Description
Colorless to pale yellow liquid with a strong, slightly unpleasant odor. Flash point approximately 164°F. Denser than water. Vapors are heavier than air. Vapors may irritate the nose, throat and respiratory tract. Ingestion or inhalation may cause central nervous system depression. Liquid contact may severely irritate the eyes and skin. Prolonged contact with the skin may cause defatting and drying.
Reactivity Profile
N-BUTYL GLYCIDYL ETHER(2426-08-6), an ether, can act as a base. They form salts with strong acids and addition complexes with Lewis acids. The complex between diethyl ether and boron trifluoride is an example. Ethers may react violently with strong oxidizing agents. In other reactions, which typically involve the breaking of the carbon-oxygen bond, ethers are relatively inert.
Air & Water Reactions
Highly flammable. This chemical may be sensitive to prolonged exposure to air, may form explosive peroxide in contact with air.
Hazard
A mild skin and eye irritant. Sensitization and reproduction effects.
Health Hazard
Exposure can cause mild irritation of skin, eyes, nose, and respiratory tract. Chronic exposure may cause inflammation and sensitization of the skin.
Potential Exposure
NIOSH has estimated human exposures @ 18,000. Used as reactive diluent for epoxy resins, flooring, laminating, and electrical; and as a stabilizer, viscosity-reducing agent, as acid acceptor for solvents; and as a chemical intermediate
First aid
If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit
Shipping
UN1993 Flammable liquids, n.o.s., Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3—Flammable liquid, Technical Name Required
Incompatibilities
May form explosive mixture with air. Air and light form unstable and explosive peroxides. Contact with strong oxidizers may cause fire and explosions. Contact with strong caustics may cause polymerization. Attacks some plastics and rubber
Waste Disposal
Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
