Section 3 – Glycerine – Hazards Identification 

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW 

This product is not classified as hazardous according to Directive 67/548/EEC Potential Health Effects 

Eye: Concentrated solutions may cause mild irritation. 

Skin: May cause skin irritation. Heated product may  cause burns on contact. 

Ingestion: May cause irritation of the digestive tract if a large  amount is ingested. 

Inhalation: Not applicable at ambient temperature. May  cause respiratory tract irritation if mist is inhaled. 

Chronic: Not available

Chemical Hazards 

Contact of glycerine with strong oxidizing agents such as chromium trioxide,  potassium chlorate, potassium permanganate, or other strong acids such as nitric  acid may cause an explosion. 

Section 4 – First Aid Measures 

 Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water  for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the  

upper and lower eyelids. Get  

medical aid. 

Skin: Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty  of water for at least 15 minutes while  

removing contaminated clothing  

and shoes. 

Ingestion: Get medical aid. Wash mouth  out with water. 

Inhalation: Remove from exposure and  move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give  

artificial respiration. If breathing  

is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. 

Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and  supportively. 

 

Section 5 – Fire Fighting Measures 

General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained  breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH  (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. 

Extinguishing Media: Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon  dioxide, or chemical foam. 

Hazardous Decomposition/ At elevated temperatures there is a  risk of exothermic polymerization (> 200°C).

Combustion Products: At temperature > 280°C acrolein may  be formed. 

 

Section 6 – Glycerine -b Accidental Release Measures 

General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8. 

Environmental Should not be released into the  environment. Prevent further leakage or 

Precautions: spillage if safe to do so. 

Methods for cleaning up: Soak up with inert absorbent material and  dispose of as hazardous waste. 

 

Section 7 – Handling and Storage 

Handling: No special precautions required  but avoid skin and eye contact. Prevent formation of mist. Eye and skin contact  should be avoided if working at elevated temperatures. 

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place. Store in  a tightly closed container to avoid moisture from the air. Can be stored in aluminum,  stainless steel and fiber glass containers. 

Other Recommendations: Avoid contact with strong oxidizing  agents such as chromium trioxide, potassium chlorate, potassium permanganate, or  other strong acids such as nitric acid. 

 

Section 8 – Exposure Controls, Personal Protection 

Engineering Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this  material should be equipped with an eyewash  

facility and a safety shower.  

Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne  

concentrations low.

Exposure Limits CAS# 56-81-5: 

Personal Protective Equipment 

 Eyes: Wear chemical splash goggles. 

Skin: Wear appropriate protective  gloves to prevent skin exposure. 

Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to  prevent skin exposure. 

Respirators: Follow the OSHA respirator  regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European  

Standard EN 149. Use a  

NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved  

respirator if exposure limits are  

exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are  

experienced.
