Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.If inhaled
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.In case of skin contact
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.In case of eye contact
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.If swallowed
Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed
SKIN: prolonged or frequently repeated exposures may lead to drying. INHALATION: headaches, dizziness, nausea, irritation of respiratory passages and eyes. (USCG, 1999)4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary
Immediate first aid: Ensure that adequate decontamination has been carried out. If patient is not breathing, start artificial respiration, preferably with a demand-valve resuscitator, bag-valve-mask device, or pocket mask, as trained. Perform CPR as necessary. Immediately flush contaminated eyes with gently flowing water. Do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain an open airway and prevent aspiration. Keep patient quiet and maintain normal body temperature. Obtain medical attention. /Esters and related compounds/5.Fire-fighting measures 5.1 Extinguishing media Suitable extinguishing media
Water in straight hose stream will scatter and spread fire and should not be used.5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical
Excerpt from ERG Guide 129 [Flammable Liquids (Water-Miscible / Noxious)]: HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Those substances designated with a (P) may polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water. (ERG, 2016)5.3 Special protective actions for fire-fighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.6.Accidental release measures 6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapours, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust. For personal protection see section 8.6.2 Environmental precautions
Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Ventilation. Remove all ignition sources. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable metal or glass containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
1. Remove all ignition sources. 2. Ventilate area of spill or leak. 3. For small quant, absorb on paper towels. Evaporate in a safe place (such as a fume hood). Allow sufficient time for evaporating vapors to completely clear the hood ductwork. Burn the paper in a suitable location away from combustible materials. Large quantities can be collected and atomized in a suitable combustion chamber. Butyl acetate should not be allowed to enter a confined space, such as a sewer, because of the possibility of an explosion.7.Handling and storage 7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. For precautions see section 188.8.131.52 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.8.3 Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment (PPE) Eye/face protection
Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166. Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).Skin protection
Wear impervious clothing. The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace. Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique(without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.Respiratory protection
Wear dust mask when handling large quantities.Thermal hazards

Heat /contributes to instability/.10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions
Flammable liquid.The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible.BUTYL ACETATE is an ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides. Attacks many plastics.

BIOLOGICAL OXYGEN DEMAND: 0.15 TO 0.5 LB/LB, 5 DAYS (THEORETICAL) 52%.12.3 Bioaccumulative potential
An estimated BCF of 7 was calculated in fish for n-butyl acetate(SRC), using a log Kow of 1.78(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).12.4 Mobility in soil
Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc of n-butyl acetate can be estimated to be 19(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that n-butyl acetate is expected to have very high mobility in soil.12.5 Other adverse effects
no data available13.Disposal considerations 13.1 Disposal methods Product
The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.Contaminated packaging
Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.14.Transport information 14.1 UN Number
