3. Composition/Information on Ingredients
CAS No.: 56-40-6
4. First Aid Measures
Always seek medical advice after the first aid treatment.
Inhalation: If Glycine inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Contact medical center quickly. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact: 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: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention.
5. Fire Fighting Measures
Fire: Flash point: 177C (350) closed cup.
Auto ignition temperature: NA
Combustible. High heat or direct flame is necessary to cause ignition. Toxic fumes and carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides may be formed in fire.
Explosion: Above the flash point, explosive vapor-air mixtures may be formed.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide. Do not use a solid stream of water, since the stream will scatter and spread the fire. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool.
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.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill: Mop and pick up the material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements.
Large Spill: Avoid dust formation. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Provide ventilation.
7. Handling and Storage
Keep away from heat and source of fire preferably in a ventilated area. Keep in tightly closed container. Do not breathe dust. Keep away from oxidizing material. Separate from oxidizing materials. Storage and use areas should be No Smoking areas. Containers of Glycine may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (vapors, liquid); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product. Store in a light resistant containers. Prevent any electrostatic discharge.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits: TWA: 10 (mg/m3) from ACGIH (TLV) [United States] Inhalation Total. TWA: 5 (mg/m3) from OSHA (PEL) [United States] Inhalation Respirable. TWA: 15 (mg/m3) from OSHA (PEL) [United States] Inhalation Total. Consult local authorities for acceptable exposure limits.
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. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to the substance is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, consult an industrial hygienist. For emergencies, or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face piece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Skin Protection: Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or a full face shield where splashing is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
