3.Summary of Toxicity and Hazards


*High pressured gas (combustible gas)


*Combustible gas inside. Danger of possible rupture due to rise in internal pressure caused by ignition or high temperature.


*Flammable liquid. If the vapor mixes with air in certain quantity, it becomes explosive gas.


*There is a danger of frostbite if direct contact occurs with liquid state of the gas.


*The liquid content functions as an anesthetic if the vapor is inhaled. With repeated exposure, irritation of mucosal membrane, dizziness, dulling of the senses and headache may occur.


*The liquid content may have negative effects on the environment in water.

4.First Aid Measures

In all of the following cases, there should be an examination by a medical specialist as required.

Contact with Eyes

*Wash immediately for at least 15 minutes with a large amount of clean water.


*Immediate treatment by a medical specialist.

Contact with Skin

*If liquid state of the gas comes in contact with skin, make a treatment for frostbite.


*If an external change is noticed or there is pain, have a treatment by a medical specialist.


*If the liquid content comes in contact with clothing, remove the clothing where it has contacted and wash the liquid off with water and soap.


*If large quantity of gas is inhaled, measures for dealing with oxygen deficiency should be taken.
*Immediate treatment by a medical specialist, as required.


*If the person feels bad after inhaling gas, keep him calm in a place where there is fresh air, and have him treated by a medical specialist.


*If inadvertently ingested, immediately wash the mouth thoroughly with water and have a treatment by a medical specialist.

5.Fire Fighting Measures

Extinguishing Media

*Mist water, type ABC or BC powder fire extinguishers, Carbon dioxide or Foam


*Do not use a rod shaped spray of water.

Extinguishing Methods

*Under take the fire extinguishing from upwind . Those engaged in the fire extinguishing should wear suitable protective gears (heat resistant clothing, protective glasses, etc.) and breathing apparatus.


*Quickly remove all combustible materials from the area.


*Used designated extinguishers.


*Unauthorized persons should not be allowed in the fire area.


*Peripheral equipment should be cooled with water spray.


*If aerosol containers are present, there is a danger of rupture. When engaged in the fire extinguishing, persons should keep a sufficient distance away and containers exposed to heat should be cooled with water.

6.Accidental Release Measures

Personal Precautions

*To prevent exposure, proper protective gears should be worn during work.


*Avoid contact of the liquid with the eyes, inhalation of the vapor and ingestion of the liquid.

Environmental Precautions

*If leak occurs, sand or earth should be used to prevent the liquid flow on the ground or into the gutter, water ways or rivers.

Cleaning Methods

*If leak occurs (a gush out), the measures are to be taken from upwind and the leaking part of the container should be turn to upward to let all gas gush out before the handling.


*Sources of combustion and high temperature items in the vicinity should be removed immediately, and people should take refuge upwind.
*Only authorized personnel should be allowed in the areas.


*Suitable fire extinguishers should be prepared in case of a fire break.


*Whether seal the leaked area or evacuate people from the area should be decided according to a local emergency evacuation regulation.


*If leak occurs in an enclosed area, make sure to ventilate before entering into the area.


*If the leaked liquid is small, use dry sand or nonflammable cloth to absorb or collect the liquid in a suitable container for later disposal.


*For small leakage, use a clean anti-static tool when collecting the absorbed material.


*For large leakage, the flow should be stopped with sand or earth and lead the liquid to a safe location for the collection.


*With large leakage, water spray reduces level of the vapor. However, there is a danger that combustion cannot be suppressed in enclosed areas.


*Emission and disposal of the product may be subject to laws and regulations.  In addition, the tools used for cleaning may also be subject to laws and regulations.  A judgment will be required as to which laws and regulations apply.

Sensitizing potential in Skin

: No significant skin sensitizing effects in animal tests.


Source of Mutation in Reproductive Cells

: There are reports on predominant lethality in rats and mice, as well as reports on generation of mutations in the reproductive cells of mice.



: IARC classifies Ethanol as Group 1 due to it is “carcinogenic as an alcoholic beverage in human”. This is because IARC consider the causal relationship between habitual consumption of alcohol beverage and esophageal system and liver cancers based on various epidemiological studies in human. On the other hand, ACGHI categorized ethanol as A4 (a substance that cannot be classified as human carcinogen) as a hazardous element mainly in a working environment.


Reproductive toxicity

: There have been numerous reports of mutations and other ill effects on the fetus due to habitual ingestion of large quantity of alcohol.


Target organs, Systemic toxicity (single exposure)

: In human, oral ingestion of ethanol causes chronic toxicity to the central nerve system which could be fatal. In human, inhalation of 5,000 ppm (9.4 mg/l) results in irritation of the air passage, dizziness and pathological slumber.


Target organs, Systemic toxicity (protracted exposure)

: In human, the protracted ingestion of large amount of alcohol harms practically all of the organs, but the one which most adversely affected is the liver. The disorder begins with changes in the fat, and this turns into cirrhosis through necrosis and fibrosis. There are also records of withdrawal symptoms (delirium tremens, epilepsy and derangement) of people addicted to alcohol.

After stopping for two weeks, retested by a patch in an adjacent area. No irritation or sensitizing potential was observed.



② In humans (25 people), conducted a maximization test with 10.7 % blended face cream for 48 consecutive hours and 5 times closed patch application. No contact sensitizing potential was observed.
