Section 2 - Composition / Information on Hazardous Ingredients
Ingredient C.A.S. No. Percent (w/w) Carcinogen
2-Butanone 78-93-3 60 - 100% No
1,2 Butylene Oxide 106-88-7 1 - 5% No
Section 3 - Hazards Identification
Emergency Overview: Liquid is moderately irritating to the eyes and mildly
irritating to the skin. Flammable concentrations of vapors in
air are possible, may travel considerable distance and may flash back to
the container. Vapors are heavier than air, but the low vapor
pressure and evaporation rate make flammable mixtures in the air unlikely.
It may be extinguished by CO2, dry chemical or foam. A clear,
dark red, viscous liquid with a solvent odor.
Health Hazards: Eye Irritant, Possible Skin Irritant Physical Hazards: Flammable
Primary Routes of Entry: X Through Skin X Inhalation X Ingestion
Potential Health Effects:
Eyes - liquid causes irritation, redness and blurred vision. Sticks to eyes, lids and lashes.
Skin - Prolonged or repeated contact may cause defatting and drying, which may result in skin irritation or dermatitis.
Swallowing - Moderately toxic. May obstruct airway. Can cause CNS depression.
Breathing - excessive breathing of vapors may cause nasal and respiratory
irritation, dizziness, headache, and nausea. High concentrations may
cause CNS depression.
Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes, lifting
upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Get medical
Skin Contact: Wipe off wet material with a paper towel or rag. If dry, it
will often peel or rub off. If not, use M.E.K., acetone or lacquer
thinner to remove it. Thoroughly wash the exposed area with soap and water. Wash the exposed skin with soap and water. Remove
contaminated clothing and shoes. Will not wash out of clothing. If irritation develops and persists, get medical attention.
Inhalation: If affected, move the affected person to fresh air. If irritation
persists get medical attention. If breathing has stopped, give
artificial respiration and get medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: Get medical attention. If the product is swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Product may block the airway. Get medical
Section 5 - Fire-Fighting Measures
Flash Point: 21° F. / -6° C. (ASTM D-56 closed cup) Auto ignition Temp.: 885°F / 474° C.
Lower Explosive Limit: 1.74% @ 200°F Upper Explosive Limit: 11.4% @ 200°F
Extinguishing Media: Water, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, alcohol foam.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: None.
Unusual Fire And Explosion Hazards: None
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
Steps To Be Taken If Material Is Released Or Spilled: Eliminate all ignition
sources and use a respirator if the spill is large. Dike to
prevent entry into drains, sewers, streams and other bodies of water. If
wet, small spills may be wiped up. When the material is tacky it
may be shoveled or scraped up. Clean-up residue with a solvent such as MEK or acetone. Larger spills can be scooped into metal
containers for disposal or absorbed onto oil dry or vermiculite. Rags and
absorbent material are very flammable until the solvent has
Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Do not use, pour, spill or store near heat, sparks, heating elements or open
flame. Vapors could be ignited by pilot lights, other flames,
sparks, heaters, smoking, electric motors, static discharge, or other ignition
sources at a considerable distance from the source.
When pouring or transferring, ground the container being poured from to the
container or tank being poured into with a wire and alligator
Do not attempt to paint the inside of a large tank from the inside unless
wearing a self-contained breathing apparatus to avoid being
overcome by fumes. Death could result.
Empty containers retain product residue. Observe all hazard precautions given in this data sheet.
Section 8 - Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Ingredient C.A.S. No. Percent (w/w) TWA(source) STEL Ceiling
2-Butanone 78-93-3 60 - 100% 20 ppm(1,2,3,4) 300 ppm(2,3,4) -1,2
Butylene Oxide 106-88-7 1 - 5% No official limits established.
(1)=OSHA (2)=NIOSH (3)=ACGIH (4)=CANADA TWA=8 hr Time Weighted Average STEL=15 minute TWA Ceiling=Instantaneous
Ventilation: At least 10 air changes per hour for good general room ventilation
are recommended. If the exposure limits of an ingredient
will be exceeded, provide sufficient mechanical (general and/or local exhaust)
ventilation to maintain exposure below the limits.
Respiratory Protection: None expected when used as directed. If the exposure
limits of an ingredient will be exceeded wear a NIOSH
approved respirator with an organic vapor cartridge or SCBA
Gloves: If the product will contact hands wear resistant gloves such as neoprene
or Nitrile. Do not use disposable latex gloves. Nitrile
disposable gloves are good.
Eye Protection: If splashing is possible wear safety glasses with side shields or chemical goggles.
Other Protective Equipment: None.

Incompatibility: Oxidizers. Hazardous Decomposition Products: CO2, CO, HCl
Section 11 - Toxicological Information
2-Butanone LD50 - 3.4 g/kg rat oral LC50 - 8,000ppm/8H rat
1,2 Butylene Oxide LD50 - 1-2 g/kg rat oral
Butylene oxide is not rated as a carcinogen by OSHS or NTP. IARC rates it in Group 2b, possibly carcinogenic, for the
reasons stated below.
Butylene oxide has been shown to produce benign and malignant tumors in rats but not in mice. These tumors occurred only
following high exposure levels. Butylene oxide is not believed to pose a carcinogenic risk to man. The small percentage of
butylene oxide in Red-Kote makes a high exposure level impossible.
In female rats exposed by inhalation to > 1000ppm 2-Butanone (5X TLV), minor embryotoxic/fetotoxic effects were observed.
Section 12 - Ecological Information
Do not dispose of in the environment.
Section 13 - Disposal Considerations
Waste Disposal Method: wet material may be poured on ground far away form
all sources of ignition and allowed to evaporate and dry.
The dry plastic is non-hazardous and may be thrown in the trash. Avoid open
burning of the plastic as it gives off dense black smoke. Wet
material should be properly incinerated or disposed of in an approved landfill.
Comply with all state, local and federal regulations.
