an extreme fire hazard. The fire and explosion hazard data section of its
Flash Point: Lowest temperature at which a liquid
will give off enough flammable vapor to ignite. Test method used to determine
flash point should be given.
Flammable Limits: Range of concentration over which
a flammable vapor mixed with air will flash or explode if an ignition source
is present. The range extends between the lower explosive limit (LEL) and
upper explosive limit (UEL) and is expressed in percentage of volume of
vapor in air.
Extinguishing Media: The type of extinguisher or suppression
system needed to put out a fire involving the product.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Lists any special

EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR
Keep liquid and vapor away from heat, sparks, flame,
and other ignition sources including, but not limited to,
pilot lights, heaters, cigarettes, electric motors, and
static discharge. Vapor is heavier than air and may
settle in low places or travel outward to a source of
ignition and flashback.
In case of fire, use water spray, dry chemical, foam,
or CO2. Use water to keep fire-exposed containers cool.
